Pigtown Design: Christmas Decoration Redux

Share the News

About two years ago, I posted some images from two friends’ house in Baltimore and I thought I’d share them again, just to get you in the holiday spirit… and to show you that too much is just right!

I’ve adopted the practice of filling a Revere bowl with beautiful glass and other ornamentsdec_11_halcyon3[6]

Jonathan is an amazing gardener and grew all of the amaryllis from bulbs, and timed them to bloom right at Christmas. They tuck in magnolia leaves from a tree on their property.dec_11_halcyon2[3]

More amaryllis and some cyclamen brighten the front hall.dec_11_halcyon4[3]

I love that they place the tree in front of a window in the sunroom, so it can be enjoyed from all angles!dec_11_halcyon6[3]

Even though there are loads of ornaments, the tree is pretty simple.dec_11_halcyon8[3]

Many late evening conversations in this cozy room, generally filled with dogs and people. The BEST!dec_11_halcyon7[3]

The wood paneled walls just glow in the candlelight and have the most beautiful patina.dec_11_halcyon9[3]

I completely admire people who take the time to decorate for the holidays. I put lights and balls on my big indoor gardenia, and put a wreath and some lights on the front door, but nothing like this! Maybe next year!
