Twelve Days of Christmas Design Tips - Embellish Your Assets!

Ok, I know 
everybody is scrambling to get the house decorated this week
so I'm sending my Christmas design tips to you in record time!
Here's a little inspiration to get you moving...


Joan Waddell's Dining Room Christmas Garland
My Adamesque mirror is almost completely covered by the 
sugar-encrusted Della Robia garland I hang in my dining room at Christmas.
It's elegant, classic and over-the-top opulent, which is the whole point!

And the Girondole candelabra, a cherished piece from my grandmother,
really comes to life with the garland frame around it. 

(Super tip:  Find a signature piece in your room, like a mirror or large framed artwork, 
and embellish it with a theme-inspired garland)

Joan Waddell's living room Christmas garland
I carry the Della Robia theme into my living room 
 with this coordinating garland that graces the top of the etagere.
Notice the different ribbon and fruit? 
 It still ties in nicely with the dining room without being an exact duplicate.

More fun tips to come as I finish up my own decorating...
We're all in the same boat so hang in there!

"EMBRACE THE JOYS OF GOOD DESIGN!"
