our gift to you? an issue packed with joyful ideas.

The weather outside may very well be frightful, but that only makes rooms dressed for the season even more delightful. After all, this is a time for gatherings both grand and intimate. To help you ready your spaces, we’ve pulled together an abundance of ideas for decking your halls with holiday attire, along with your mantels, banisters, doors, tables—OK, practically any surface indoors and out. On the following pages, we take you on a holiday house tour to some truly inspiring places, each with its own take on seasonal trimmings. Down in North Carolina, for instance, Molly and Charlie Williams show us in their historic home how to layer on traditional finery without any of the stuffiness (page 12). For a simple approach, we visit the newly built Vermont home of…

home at last

THE HOUSE WASN’T DECORATED WHEN MOLLY AND Charlie Williams first saw it. It wasn’t furnished at all, actually, as the previous homeowners had vacated months before. But Molly had good reason to believe this 1790 Victorian would look its best during the holidays. “I made Charlie drive through the neighborhood around New Year’s,” she says, “because I wanted him to see what I was seeing.” The Concord, North Carolina, neighborhood is an early-1800s suburb of Charlotte and is populated with historic homes just like this one—all decked out in classic holiday finery when Molly and Charlie drove through. Molly’s experience as a home stager gives her an eye for possibilities, and for this house, she envisioned a traditional Southern Christmas saturated in red and green, formal trimmings, and greens galore. “I…

all is calm, all is bright

Longtime builders Bruce and Barbara Drobnyk have created homes in sunny Sanibel, Florida, for 25 years. Their current home base is in Fort Myers, but they were eager to find a cooler, country house up north that would be restful in the summer and a holiday getaway in the winter. Their eyes were set on rural Vermont, complete with skiing, snowshoeing, and five o’clock cheese boards. They also envisioned a quaint, practical, vintage-style farmhouse. The couple found a 1950s home just north of Manchester, set on 12 acres with 180-degree views of farmland. Luckily for them, the foundation was so poor it couldn’t be saved, presenting them with the perfect opportunity to build. “We like to build; sawdust is in our blood,” Barbara says. So they created their dream house—something casual…

COLLECTIBLE breadboards THE BIG IDEA Antique round breadboards mounted on the wall count as an “everlasting” collection in stylist Matthew Mead’s home. Sprigs of green, red holly berries, and homemade wreaths are what take the collection from every day to holiday. Secure sprigs with a smidgen of double-sided tape and fashion wreaths in the same scale as the boards for an intentional look. GET THE GOODS Matthew digs breadboards for their primitive character. Boards range in age (earliest examples date around 1830); shape (typically round or square); pedigree (American or European); price (starting around $20); and intricacy. “You can see the handiwork of the person who made them,” Matthew says. COLLECTIBLE Akro Agate pots & bottle-brush trees THE BIG IDEA Their shades of green and diminutive size make vintage mini ivy pots from Ohio-based manufacturer Akro Agate natural holders…
