Inspired Holiday Decorating

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

We have been busy decorating up a storm, 
and finally it has snowed.  Making the perfect backdrop for our holiday decor.

In this vignette we mixed orange, rust and burgundy with golds and creams, for a beautiful and unexpected mix of colour.

We wrapped small boxes in coordinating colours to hang as mini presents on the tree.  Another tip for decorating, trim your beaded garland and hang small pieces over individual branches, this is way easier than trying to drape a long strand of beads.  And we think it looks quite elegant too.

We layered and bunched fabric along the buffet to add colour and softness to the display, carrying gold tones throughout the vignette and punctuating with splashes of burgundy.

The overall effect was quite stunning and coordinated beautifully with the interior finishes throughout the room.  Changing up the style drastically we put together this blue and green retro vintage look for another client of ours.

Our client had a taste for all things vintage and wanted to use this retro fabric as inspiration for her holiday decor. Always being up for a challenge we loved the idea.

We kept our client's unique qualities in mind and decorated in unexpected ways, with beautiful vintage items.

Decorative turquoise glass and canning jars were a no brainer, especially since they were part of the client's cherished collection of vintage artifacts.

We mixed the turquoise with white, silver and a funky green.  These colours don't match the fabric exactly, they mimic and reference the colour palette adding depth and interest to the vignette.

Throwing a few traditional touches to the mix gave our retro vintage display a unique and unexpected holiday feel, every bit as funky as our client.

For this vignette we used a more traditional colour palette of red, brown and gold, updating it with an interesting twist on scale.  This season you'll see an array of oversized ornaments in the stores.

Clustering a collection of large bulbs in gorgeous fabrics makes this simple display come to life.  We added a touch of unconventional flair with the leopard print lamp shade.  The colours worked beautifully and the shade reflected the client's wild side.

The elegance of our vignette mixed with the traditional elements and the play on scale makes for a fun and festive holiday display.
