Outdoor Christmas Ideas: A Recent Project

Christmas!  It's already here! It seems that just as soon as we pack all of our decorations away, it's time to climb back up in the attic and pull them down again. If you're like me, you love this time of year and look forward to bedazzling your home in holiday glam. Christmas is that perfect time to try out an outrageous design idea or a color that you might not use year round. I like to experiment with new things each year during the holidays and really go over the top.
Following that notion, I wanted to share some pictures of a recent design that I did with my friend and fellow designer Christopher Shackelford at the Leu House in Orlando. Chris and I designed and decorated the front porch area of the 1888 home (located inside beautiful Leu Gardens) for the annual holiday open house. If you happen to be in the Orlando area during the holidays, please make a point to stop by. The home is beautiful and each room has been lavishly decorated inside, though we can't take credit for the interior decorations : ) The project had an additional caveat: we couldn't nail, glue, screw, or affix anything to the historic home that would harm it. Now THAT was a challenge!

Here are some pictures of our over the top, but still traditional design; I hope you can find some inspirations for your own home

'Till next time...
