Are you all in the mood yet to decorate for the Holidays? I went on a local house tour yesterday and Christmas has certainly arrived! Last year I remember having virtually no furniture in the house to speak of which contributed to a lack of visual warmth. So I proceeded to go out and buy the biggest Christmas tree I could find. It was ridiculous. But I'm never really one to go all out. I think in the works this year are real wreaths once again on the windows hung from a greek key or striped ribbon, boxwood topiaries flanking the front door, and a sparkling tree. I love my friend David Jimenez's idea of putting a pretty wreath in front of each mirror tied from a satin ribbon inside the house. Simple and tres chic. If it was up to my mother (she knows she's guilty) the house would look like it threw up Christmas, but I just can't pull it off. So here's some of my favorite images this year.
