Welcome to our home and the 10th annual Holiday Housewalk, hosted by my very talented friend Jennifer Rizzo. This is my second year and I’m giddy with excitement to be a part of such an amazing group of bloggers. It's time to get cozy and enjoy my Southern Charm Holiday Housewalk.
We are on day 5 of the Housewalk but I recommend starting at DAY 1 to get the full experience than clicking through to each home.
If you are coming from The Yellow Cape Cod, Welcome! Sarah's decorating skills are so inspiring! I look forward to her creativity every season.
Our foyer greets you with a big dose of southern charm. Navy grasscloth on the walls and ceiling add immediate character and invite you to explore the rest of our home! As an interior designer, my goal is to create trends and inspire creativity. To help you think outside of the box and create a home that speaks to you and your personality. Our home is 101 years old and we love to entertain therefore it's important to us that you feel that hospitality from the moment you walk in the front door. You can see our original flyer here.
For my Christmas decor for the Holiday Housewalk, I wanted to keep it simple yet have that wow factor. I used a thick cedar garland to hang on the mirror and come down the stairs. It’s dramatic but won’t take me long to remove after Christmas. Since I have layers of texture and pattern with the stair runner and grasscloth it automatically elevates the decor without having the clutter.
Our Home Office is to the right as you walk in. We just finished this room and revealed it HERE. It’s my new favorite room and I enjoy sitting by the fire reading. Sounds cliche but it’s the truth. The room doesn’t feel like an office and that was my intention. Most of the decor came from my brick-and-mortar home decor boutique, Katrina & Co. I just opened in March of this year...a week before COVID shut the world down. However, it’s thriving and I am thrilled with what 2021 will bring. In fact, we have a few announcements coming soon.
Our powder bath is simply decorated. A lil’ tree and festive hand towel. Again, the wallpaper and large scale custom art are enough. I only need to add a few elements to spice it up. Check out our powder bath reno here.
The back of our home is completely open and I used more neutral elements. High contrast black and white, mixed metals, and a touch of greenery. I hear people say you can’t mix black and blue but I want to prove whoever they are, wrong. The right color blue acts as a neutral and we need a touch of black in each room. I hope my holiday housewalk will inspire you to mix it up too.
Nothing says Southern charm more than fresh fruit at Christmas. Oranges, cloves, and cinnamon in a gold bowl on the island. Whether it’s our Christmas Home tour or a summer day I always have cutting boards and something green on my counters.
My flocked tree from King of Christmas is loaded with Katrina & Co. ornaments. It’s soft and not overdone. Mixing in mercury glass balls, shiny silver baubles, and sprigs of gold glitter.
More cedar garland on the mantle and two lantern-style hurricanes flank our massive and NOT aesthetically pleasing T.V. but Scott says it has to stay so there it is! The stockings and pillows are also part of my Katrina & Co. holiday collection. They are the perfect finishing touch for the living room.
Warm and inviting. Bright and airy. That sums up what I want my home to feel like all year long but at Christmas time it’s all about the twinkle! Starting at dusk I cut on all the lamps, light the candles, plug in the trees and garland to create a calming atmosphere.
