Inspired Holiday Decor

Friday, November 5, 2010


I'm looking forward to an enjoyable and inspiring holiday season.  I've gotten together with a good friend of mine Deborah Wilkinson from Touch of Elegance Interiors.  We collaborated on offering holiday decorating packages, because we thought it would be fun to work together doing what we love most DESIGNING.  Our desire for making your world a beautiful place combined with our excitement for working together throughout the holidays has prompted us to offer some pretty spectacular pricing.  Two designers for the price of one is a limited holiday offer that we hope you see fit to enjoy.

Includes: A 1hr Consultation (with both of us), Tree Decorating & 2 Holiday Vignettes for $500, plus the cost of decorations and supplies.  Additional Vignettes with the Inspired Package are $75 each plus the cost of supplies.

Is a 1hr Consultation with Deborah and I for $150.  We meet at your home to look through your collection of decorations.  We discuss decorating ideas and themes using what you have and suggest what to add to your collection.  We have a binder chalk full of inspiring holiday decorating images to get your creative juices flowing.  We teach you to see ornamental and decorative uses for common items you may have around your home.  We help you to define your style and create a plan for adding to your decorations.  We assist you in developing an appropriate budget for new decorations.  Budgets for holiday decorating can range anywhere from do-it-yourself  boxes wrapped in gift paper and ribbon used as tree ornaments and display fillers to purchasing one of a kind hand painted ornaments and vases.  You can have us make you a custom made wreath to hang above your fireplace, or you can fill an existing picture frame with decorative paper and wrap a ribbon around it.  You can use brown paper bags and burlap or you can use organza and silk.  The options and price ranges are limitless.  We work with you to creatively determine what you can do for what you want to spend.  We can give you ideas for what to purchase and where to shop or we can take the decorating budget and purchase your decorations for you.

A Holiday Vignette can be; a custom container or urn for use inside or outside, custom wreath, fireplace mantle display, dining table centerpiece complete with linens and dishes, buffet table display or decorating your banister with garland.  The options for vignettes are endless.  Design and installation of a Holiday Vignette is $95 plus the cost of supplies.  We work with you to determine your budget for the vignette supplies and we incorporate as many of your items and decorations in the vignette design as possible.  We use the allotted budget to purchase everything that is required and then we design / install the vignette in your home.

We will decorate your tree for you using your decorations or we will decorate your tree with additional decorations that we purchase.  We work with you to develop your vision and tree ornament budget.  Decorating your tree with your decorations costs $175 for a 6'-7' tree.  Decorating your tree providing new ornaments and decorations costs $275 for a 6'-7' tree plus the cost of decorations.

It is our MISSION to creatively customize holiday decor by reusing repurposing and refurbishing.  We decorate using environmentally friendly materials to the extent of our vast imaginations.

It is our GOAL to foster relationships with potential interior design and renovation clients by giving them a taste of our value, knowledge and style.

Stay tuned we plan to post our decorating adventures in the near future.  If you have any questions please contact either Deborah at Touch of Elegance Interiors or myself at Racher Interiors.  The photos we used in this blog were found from some of our favorite magazine websites, Canadian House and HomeCountry Living and Style at Home.

As my friend Deborah likes to say "You only live beautifully".
