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!

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]

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!
