How is it possible the Christmas is just 25 days away? With the temperatures still being in the 70s in Charlotte, I am having a hard time getting motivated to put up the tree. As I mentioned in my last post, (click HERE to read Part One) going to a holiday showhouse helps me to get in the spirit. I am always preaching to my clients that details make the design. It shows that extra dose of imagination and love has been devoted to taking a piece of furniture, lampshade or window treatment from ordinary to extraordinary. I was BLOWN AWAY by the impeccable attention to detail that every designer mastered in their rooms at the Home for the Holidays Showhouse. From the selection of treats left for Santa and brilliantly curated art to the unique floral arrangements and interesting holiday color schemes, every detail was beautifully thought out and executed. Congratulations to all of the designers that pulled off this amazing feat!
