With less than a week before Christmas, final preparations are underway here at my Bedford, New York farm. Everyone has been hard at work getting everything ready for the holidays.
I love how my home looks this time of year. Nearly every room is filled with beautiful, cheerful decorations - from collections both old and new. My housekeeper, Laura Acuna, and I enjoy mixing and matching traditional pieces with more whimsical objects. This season, my living room, also known as the Brown Room, is adorned with golds, silvers, winter woodland animals, and lots of trees, including two gorgeous silver trees from my holiday line at Home Decorators Collection. The room looks wonderful, and I can’t wait to show it to my grandchildren, Jude and Truman.
1 I've always enjoyed decorating for the holidays. Every year, I try to do something a little different in every room. This year, our video team captured this quick tour I gave of the Christmas decor in my Brown Room.
2 Most of my holiday decorating is primarily for my grandchildren, Jude and Truman. I covered the center of my dining table with silver and white trees, and whimsical winter white animals.
17 It is so beautiful, and it can be reused year after year. A felt tree sits in the center.
18 I love these metallic wreaths hanging on the windows.
19 And, in front of each one, more silver tinsel Christmas trees with beautiful glass icicle ornaments I've collected over the years.
20 Each wreath has a bird perched in the center.
21 The trees in front of the windows are all sitting in large planters with lots of bright white cotton faux snow. This tree is adorned with large pearl white ornaments, and long tinsel-like strands of yarn.
22 I have collected so many ornaments and decorations over the years - it is fun to remember the stories that go along with them.
23 Here is a Christmas snowman and the head of a French Bulldog.
24 I can't wait to share this room, and all the decorations in my home, with Jude and Truman this Christmas!
25 Doesn't it look wonderful? Here is a wide view of the room, with the two big metallic trees in the back.
26 I wish you all a wonderful holiday, and please watch the video tour below for more on the Christmas decorations in my Brown Room.
