Colorful Curlicue Theme

November 14, 2010

This is our favorite Christmas decorating theme to-date, a multicolored arrangement of shapes, from light bulb to swirl, artfully accenting this bayfront home.  We used the shades from the homeowner’s existing furniture to create a whimsical, modern theme, celebrating holiday fun.  At under $100 for materials to decorate four distinct spaces, this unique theme is beautiful and budget-conscious!

First, we go to the homeowner’s dining room. We love these brightly colored chairs!

The curio cabinet is one of our favorite features of the whole home:

The curio cabinet presented an unique challenge, with its asymmetrical shape and large size.

The answer, of course, was to make an asymmetrical arrangement to top the cabinet!

This chandelier in the home office can be seen in the photo of the curio cabinet; a few brightly-colored ornaments hung strategically create a beautiful and subtle decoration.

This long buffet table is where the homeowner displays holiday cards:

Finally, the hearth/television area provided a beautiful canvas to work on, and The Christmas Elves created a custom wreath to tie the whole space together!
