This weekend I bought a new wreath, two Amaryllis, and a small Christmas tree. I look forward to puling out all my vintage ornaments and decorations next. But I have a long way to go though to live up to the classically elegant holiday decorations of interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein recently featured on One Kings […]

Blue & Green Christmas

12 . 09 . 11

Someone asked me what color theme I was going to use for decorating this year. Um, the one that results from whatever I find when I unpack my decorations.  I haven’t had a big tree for years so I didn’t even think about working around a color scheme.  If I do plan one for next year, […]

Deck the Outdoor Walls

New Yorkers decorate the outside of their townhouses and apartment buildings as best they can but it’s just not the same as a real house.  This one that I came across from Canadian House & Home is especially festive.  I love that all the decorations are natural which are perfect for the outside house covered […]

Luckily, I managed to get out and take some photos of the wonderful holiday decorations on the Upper East Side before I became an incubus of viral plague.  New Yorkers really know how to go all out.  Enjoy!  Photos by Heather Clawson for Habitually Chic

I posted these photos two years ago in Silver and Sage but I love them so much that I couldn’t help reposting them.  The house located in New Canaan, Connecticut was built in 1885 and belongs to designer Michelle Morgan Harrison.  It was originally featured in Connecticut Cottages & Gardens and makes me wish I had a […]

Growing up, my mother used to display Christmas cards along a ribbon along a door frame.  The cards were held up by tiny little red clothes pins.  Those were the days when you would receive a pile of cards everyday in the mail.  Fewer people send out cards these days so I feel like I […]

If you don’t have a mantel or room for a tree, there are a lot of other creative ways you can decorate your home for the holidays.  I love the wreaths that are hung inside the house but my favorite idea are the festive touches placed in the china cabinets.   Hanging garland on mirrors and over doorways are also a […]

Tabletop Tannenbaums

12 . 22 . 09

I always look at decorating for the holidays from the point of view of someone who doesn’t live in an home that allows for a full size Christmas tree. So I’ve been collecting inspiring images of tabletop tannenbaums that are perfect for smaller spaces. Martha Stewart (above) is full of ideas for these types of […]

I had a fabulous lunch at Cafe Cluny yesterday with interior designer Courtney Giles and gallery owner Emily Amy who are in town from Atlanta for a few days of shopping. Afterward, I took a walk around the West Village to check out the holiday decorations. The neighborhood is full of beautiful brownstones and their […]

Blue Christmas

12 . 07 . 09

One of the most famous holiday spreads has to be Aerin Lauder’s East Hampton house from the December 2007 issue of House & Garden magazine. I have been seeing a lot of blue backdrops to holiday decorations this year and it had me thinking about Lauder’s blue dining room. The table was beautifully set for […]
