How I helped a client get her house ready for Christmas by using some bold maroon florals from the fall season and adding in some new maroon pieces they'll use forever.
My client and her family recently renovated their home that they bought last year. We are talking every inch of their 60s tri-level got a major overhaul. So she requested some help finding all new decorations for their new main floor because they moved from an apartment . A decorator's dream, right? Getting to plan, design, shop, and decorate for someone is an awesome project to undertake, but getting to help them around Christmas is just so special and rewarding.
First, we definitely wanted to have the tree and mantle be the focal point of the living room; and we used the fall wreath on the mirror above the mantle as the inspiration for the color pallet - burgundy's, blushes, and golds!
In addition to bringing in their new flocked tree, we also turned their sectional to face the mantle wall and bought a couple of new rugs to define the gathering space a bit more. This tan, beige and gray rug was a great addition!
Next, on the main tree, we filled it up using blush sprigs and twigs, gold bells and balls, sparkly ribbon and berries and bulbs. The maroon poinsettias and roses were added at the end and my client can always change these out for a different color if she ever wants to switch out the maroon a few years down the road.
We decorated a smaller version of this flocked tree in the dining room and carried the same color theme over there. *This 6.5' flocked tree is on sale this year and is so cute for the price!
And they freshened up this space with a beautiful gray and blue rug in the 9x12' size.
Then, since this family needed to start from scratch when it came to decorating for Christmas, they wanted to invest in a few pieces that they knew they'd enjoy for years to come. Enter in these remarkable signs:
And then we added this one in the living room:
And lastly, we added some of the beautiful maroon color to the entry!
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of a maroon, blush, and gold Christmas house. This combination brought such a stunning and classic feel to this remodeled main floor.
