Here are a few additional tips from Kendall to create a festive home environment:

Consider rearranging your space – When preparing for your holiday party, moving a couple of pieces of furniture around to create intimate seating groups can provide an entirely new look.

While we are fond of traditional holiday colors of greens, reds, blues and metallics, we also love to bring in less expected hues – try eggplant with bronze, chartreuse and smoky blue, or yellow mixed with metallics for a new take on the holidays.

While people often make use of greenery to decorate, there are many options for bringing the outside in: try adding apples and berries to your wreath or let colorful gourds dress up your table.

Dress up your tree – One of our favorite ornaments is a white feather dove perched on a branch. So soft! These are sold in our store and we can never keep them in stock.

If you can’t find it – make it! – We love making custom stockings that coordinate with our clients’ homes. It’s an easy way to have something personal and meaningful that the whole family can enjoy many holidays over.
