If I had to award a top prize for holiday decorating, it would go to Brian Branton in Alexandria, Virginia. He goes all out each year decorating his historic home from 1808 with multiple Christmas trees, wreathes, and swags. I posted about him last year but he deserves another post since his home was just […]

I posted this historic house from 1845 in Essex, Connecticut designed by the lovely design duo Olasky and Sinsteden a few weeks ago. The home is featured in the November/December 2019 issue of New England Home but the photos online were a little small. Photographer Read McKendree and Max Sinsteden were very generous in sending me larger images to swap […]

An Elegant Christmas

I love festive and colorful Christmas decorations as much as anyone but I also appreciate quiet and elegant Christmas decorations.

I’ve combined those […]

I don’t think […]

I was supposed to decorate my apartment for Christmas on Sunday but my gift guide took so long to put together that I didn’t have time. Seeing everyone’s houses decorated on Instagram is giving me major fomo now and none more so than Fairgreen Farm which is the home of Amanda Brooks. It’s just been […]

The Halls are Decked

There aren’t that many holiday decorated houses published in magazines so I get very excited when I find one.

These gift ideas could be for host/hostess gifts, stocking stuffers, or items for anyone on your list, even yourself. I also like mixing my lists with presents for all ages […]

I’ve had a couple of readers ask me to post what I bought myself for Christmas since they loved my post of these items last year. A few things have already sold out, a few have limited sizes left, and others have a lot of availability so get them before they are gone. Long time […]

I love how Instagram introduces you to people who love the same things and I’m so glad it’s how I met Brian Branton. While we have not met in real life yet, I feel like I know him well after following along on his Christmas decorating this year. While I was buying dried pomanders and […]
