Last week I had the pleasure of being a guest in the beautiful home and Maria and Yuri designed and built. Maria has what she calls "a knack" for decorating. And how!
Maria's Christmas decor with a silver and white theme, and touches of gold, that suited her home perfectly. Sparkle set off the neutral decor palette. See what I mean...
Tree decorations and ornaments in white, silver and gold. Here are some close ups of the individual touches.
Don't you love the little ram?
A frosty evergreen spray rests on a cream and gold brocade tree skirt.
Long glass teardrops and shimmering tassels hang from lower branches. A hurricane lamp chimney hold a collection of shiny gold balls.
Sparkle everywhere in gold and silver.
Sparkling sprays and sprigs intersperse with glittery ribbons.
On the top of the tree, a sequined star shimmers.
Maria placed this trio of trees before a tall mirror near the front door, doubling their dazzling effect.
Simple, silver-spangled twigs accent a resting reindeer in gold. (How do you like my alliteration?)
This elegant, old-world St. Nick carries a basket of glorious goodies on his back and stands guard next to the base of the tree.
Take a close look at this side-board collection and you'll find some simple ideas that I'm sure Maria wouldn't mind if you borrow. Tall, plain glass vases hold both black and silver twigs, hung with silver baubles. Cream candles on mercury glass holders and long-stemmed candle holders topped with silver balls sparkle in the light of a berry-festooned garland.
A collection of plain white candles sits on a silver charger, sprinkled around with various sized "gems".
A pair of pale gold reindeer camouflage a stereo speaker.
Coordinating wire trees grace each end of the fireplace mantle.
An alcove next to the fireplace gets its own Christmas treatment.
This pair of silver wire trees sits on the floor next to the fireplace, and opposite the Christmas tree. The perfect counterpoint.
Notice how Maria has balanced her decorations without having them be identical.
Wide windowsills avail themselves of glass snowflakes and silver and glass candle sleeves.
A festive centrepiece nestles amid silvered cane balls, sparkling gems, and sugary snow.
With a quick look at the living room sectional, festooned with elegant throw cushions, you can see how Maria's Christmas decorations tie in beautifully with the decor of the home.
Many thanks to Maria for allowing me to feature her home and decorations.
