Merry Christmas on this beautiful Sunday Christmas Eve! This year we traded the green foothills of Northern CA for the snow-covered mountains of Utah to celebrate Christmas, but before leaving town I transformed my studio into a festive place for a holiday photoshoot.
A MIX OF MODERN AND VINTAGE
Wanting to keep it simple and fresh looking, I included a collage of holiday wreaths as wall decor.
FRESH FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS
Taking center stage on the table I placed a lovely fresh arrangement that included both purchased flowers and foraged greenery and berries.
SIMPLE & AIRY
In contrast to the densely packed centerpiece, I included simple, airy floral arrangements on the buffet to accent the green of the wreaths and add more color to the space.
THE TAKE AWAY
Probably not a surprise to hear that my cupboards are full of white dishes…and for many years after inheriting the keepsake vintage china I kept it neatly stored, out of sight, with no intentions of every using it. After all it was so far from my own, more modern aesthetic that even though I appreciated it, I couldn’t imagine ever including it in a tablescape...but as my own taste has evolved over the years I have developed a greater appreciation for the visual depth and story that vintage pieces can bring to a space.
