While our team is putting the final trimmings on this winter issue, I’m marveling at the pure elegance and holiday splendor of the homes we’re sharing with you this season. We know the holiday-focused issue is your favorite, likely for all the sparkly reasons we love it too. In this season, the homes are not only beautifully designed in their own right, but also boast that extra layer of Christmas decor and family traditions. It reminds me of what it’s all about here at Traditional Home. Beautiful, meaningful living environments. What binds all of us in this community of readers, editors, art directors, designers, makers, and artisans is an appreciation of thoughtfully designed, elegant homes. Regardless of our vocation, we are infinitely curious about the story behind the style—designers’ decisions and…

Andrew Fisher Consider him today’s Midas of the art world. For his new collection, fine artist Andrew Fisher has crafted 24-karat gilded masterpieces sparked by his affinity for mixed materials. Especially noteworthy among his textured sculptures are tapestries like the one pictured, above. Intricate pieces of canvas, paper, and steel are painted and gilded, then sewn together. In addition to creating art pieces, Fisher—with business and life partner Jeffry Weisman—operates a full-service design firm with home bases in San Francisco and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and offers a stylish product line that includes lighting, furniture, and accessories.

’twas the night before christmas

Christmas feeds the soul with words and music, memories and meaning. The notes of White Christmas; O Come, All Ye Faithful; and other carols fill the air during holiday parties and afternoons of tree trimming. Winter nights call for a snuggle in front of the television to watch a family favorite: It’s a Wonderful Life for sentiment or Christmas Vacation for silly fun. And when it’s time to wind down, a reading of A Visit from St. Nicholas brings delight to children and nostalgia to those who have recited the poem for decades. We’ve brought a handful of its phrases to life with products sure to provide decorating and gift ideas—and brighten this season with beauty. The Stockings Were Hung by the Chimney With Care Gabby “Diana” iron mirror with gold finish…

christmas surprise

Just call them Mr. and Mrs. Claus. An invitation to the home of Dallas-based designer Denise McGaha and her husband, Scott, for a Christmas gathering brings a flood of gifts for fortunate guests—the gift of comfort, the gift of food, and the gift of friendship. “We want to deliver a special and elevated experience,” Denise says of the dinners that she and Scott carefully craft. “It’s important at this special time of the year.” First, there’s the home itself. Like a gingerbread house adorned with peppermint sticks and gumdrops, the McGahas’ interiors offer plenty of eye candy. For this festive dinner, even a Christmas tree and greens weren’t enough to achieve the grandeur that Denise envisioned. She moved her dining room furniture into the living room (and vice versa) to set a…

“THE HOLIDAYS ARE SPECIAL. WE LOVE TO GATHER AS A FAMILY AND RECONNECT OVER FAVORITE HOLIDAY TREATS.”—homeowner Tiffany Fallon Life is a highway—and country star Joe Don Rooney’s led him to a new neighborhood in Nashville. Cozy and historic, it offered appealing amenities for the three newest members of the band—he and wife Tiffany Fallon’s young children: Jagger, Raquel, and Devon. “Joe Don and Tiffany had been living in a new house, but they grew up in older homes and wanted a home with old bones that we could modernize,” designer Chad James says. “We wanted to make it beautiful and family-friendly.” In the kitchen, that meant rethinking what originally had been one very large open cooking and breakfast space. “It was too gargantuan,” James says. “People crave the intimacy and coziness of…

winter wonderland

Nineteen years ago, lured by a picture in a magazine, Mike Kelly headed to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, with an engagement ring in his pocket and his girlfriend, Kristin, at his side. They’ve been coming back ever since. First as newlyweds, later as new parents, the couple often skied by a rustic home right on the slopes. “‘Wouldn’t it be great to live here?’ I’d say. He’d tell me, ‘You’re dreaming,’” Kristin says. “But one day that dream came true.” After buying the house, though, Kristin and Mike did want one more thing—a design team that could open up the space to accommodate gatherings of family and friends and add a layer of sophistication to the woodsy interiors. “A lot of the design in Jackson is rustic,” Kristin says. “So when I walked into…
