Twelve Days of Christmas Design Tips - Collective Impact

When it comes to Christmas decorating,
the most common question I hear from my clients is,
"How do I get a more cohesive look with my decorations?"

My advice?
Choose a theme for a room.
Then find decorations that fit your theme and use them throughout the space in different ways.
If you have a collection, arrange it in a grouping to create more impact and drama.

In my own foyer,
I have a silver theme that plays well against the black and white Pierre Deux toile paper
and my silver Wedding Cake chandelier.

On the mirror, I use glittery greens intertwined with drippy antique glass beads and black and white ribbon.
The theme is repeated on the chest with my collection of antique mercury glass vases.
Even my silver biscuit barrel gets in the act, filled to the brim with mercury glass balls.

A little later, I'll share some pix of  the other side of my foyer,
where my 12 ft. tree is covered in antique mercury glass ornaments.
So be sure to check back with me!
