This seems to be the year for non-traditional holiday decor. I thought I was on to something original until I saw an article in HGTV magazine with several punchy color combos that are hot this Season. So much for being unique! But, maybe that’s the reason I haven’t had any trouble convincing my clients it’s ok to stray from the traditional reds & greens to show some individuality.





















We’ve done holiday decorating for today’s home in Cary, IL for several years. And while it’s a huge compliment to be invited back year after year, repeat clients present an obvious challenge. How to reinvent the look each year while using the same decorations to make it look new and fresh.



Since this particular client has developed a “black” fetish of late, It was an obvious add to incorporate some into the look this year. New black ornaments woven into the garlands & centerpieces and filling containers along with a few new accessories added a punch of the unexpected to the chartreuse and white of previous years.

While it’s easy to dream of a white Christmas. I think it’s safe to say that black might be dream-worthy as well. Happy Holiday Decorating from Decor Designswww.decordesignsinc.com
