Holiday decor does not have to mean red and green, tinsel and gold. Designers often use an understated, tasteful color palette in their holiday packages, wreaths and swag, often coordinated to each room to keep the look cohesive.
The palm-inspired green walls of the guest bedroom that designer Brian Patrick Flynn describes as very bohemian coordinate with the different shades of green used for the upholstered wingback bed. The deep shade of green on the walls can also be found in the garden entry of the home.
LEDs line the edge of the pool and change the water from its usual blue to bright green, red and even purple. After an evening swim, the owners will definitely enjoy sitting back and watching the display.
'Give a nod to the season without being too over the top," says planner Resha Zazueta, of Something To Celebrate. "Florals with a hint of holiday coloring, sprigs of mistletoe, and a hot chocolate bar bring a lovely wintry feel without turning a wedding into a Christmas party.” Flowers: White roses, deep red calla lilies, deep red chrysanthemums, white hydrangeas, blush peonies, red amaranthus, white hydrangeas, white larkspur, white wax flowers, dusty miller, white tallow berries, greenery. Floral design: Blooming Gallery.
If something more otherworldly is your aim, a dinosaur garden filled with dyed deer moss, a bonsai tree, glittery holiday decor, multicolored plants and a variety of colorful dinosaurs offers plenty of visual space for small children to explore.
