Christmas is upon us so I wanted to share a beautiful home with just the right amount of festive feel.


This stunning home is designed home by Gardner Architects. The exterior depicts a strong house with traditional design both inside and out. There are a few traditional fireplaces where the owners have taken advantage to decorate with wreaths and flowers. Fireplaces are a go to for Christmas decor as they are usually the main feature of a living room. Wreaths are the main Christmas theme of this home and their simplicity and classic design are the perfect accents for simple Christmas decorating.

Of course every house has to have a tree big or small but keep it simple by decorating with similar objects and colours in this case gold and bronze, glass baubles add glamour…

Above: Fresh Magnolia leaves are perfect for a wreath. The simplest way is to buy a foam circle and poke the leaves into it. Keep them very close together to cover the foam. I usually spray paint my foam first so that any small gaps are hidden. You can use a dark green or brown spray paint.
Above: A simple swag of dried leaves is all this lovely mantel needs. You can pick Magnolia leaves a few days before and wire them onto a long piece of cord or sisal rope for a fabulous swag
Above: Mantels are where you can have fun with wreaths of fresh flowers or swags
Above: Even the bathroom has a festive touch with a simple wreath

I hope you’ve enjoyed this beautiful home and if you’re running late with your Christmas decorations, that you can find some last minute inspiration from these lovely images.

Have a wonderful week.
