I love the holidays! So, I was very excited when my friend (& talented designer) Amy Herman asked me to be a part of the Webster Groves Holiday House Tour this year!! The tour is December 7th from noon – 4:00 p.m. and it benefits the Hixon Middle School.
I’m part of a team of talented designers decorating 3 out of the 6 houses on the tour and I’m fortunate to be focusing on one homeowner in particular with the assistance of another super talented newbie designer, Julie Tesson! Our homeowner has been phenomenal to work with and I’m very pleased with how her space is coming together!
Here’s a sneak peek at how we evolved her living room in preparation for the tour!
This is the before shot of her space…
Step 1: We rotated the chairs 90 degrees in order to line up the 2 taller chairs with the fireplace as the focal point. Immediate improvement!
Step 2: We added the companion piece of art above the TV and raised the left piece of art so that they are centered horizontally with 4 over the fireplace. Now the whole wall reads together.
Step 3: We added new pillows to the grey chairs which ties in the colors of the art and livens up the chairs. We also added loose branches to the vases on the mantel which completes the visual of the art as a whole.
Step 4: For the holiday decorations, we decided to keep the mantel simple and added pieces of pine roping in loose layers and partially hanging off the front to balance with the art.
Final look: With the tree and the beautiful red roses, the whole room looks ready for Christmas!
To see the rest of the house, attend the Webster Groves Holiday House Tour on 12/7 from noon – 4:00!
