I'm so excited to announce that today is the opening of Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Home for the Holidays Showhouse benefiting the Southeastern Horticultural Society's Children's Learning Gardens and Farms. The house is open Wednesday-Sunday, November 19-December 7. For tickets, please purchase them at www.atlantaholidayhome.com!
Bill and I decorated a cozy gentleman's study in rich chocolates and subtle tweeds and tartan. This sneak peek from our room highlights our vignette which features classic antiques juxtaposed with unique textures (feathers, horn, crystal, a glittery pine cone) and a splash of Tiffany blue for whimsy.
If this look has inspired you, here are some great ideas for your home.
A classic antique chest is a perfect way to display your treasures, with the added benefit of having storage for your linens, cards and entertaining essentials that you like to have close at hand.
I always love to include mirrors in my rooms - particularly in smaller rooms. They add depth and enhance the sense of space and light.
Lamps are a terrific way to complement a mirror. They draw the eye up and are a source of light to boost. Lampshades are a perfect way to add a touch of your personality.
I appreciate the convenience of having libation close at hand to offer company. Displaying your silver and crystal on a tray is a lovely way to have a bar that is both fetching and functional.
