Finally, a chic wall hanging and wicker bench add the finishing details to the space.

"Light blues can sometimes feel very nursery-like," Robin says, "so I wanted to bring in some darker colors to make sure the room felt like a mature space. When I found the pillows on the bed, they inspired the rest of the palette." The plantation shutters and navy curtains add an extra grown-up punch.

The milk glass feels like it’s original to this historic home.

Sparkle is a holiday essential, according to Cathy Barnhardt, Floral Displays Manager of Biltmore Estates in Asheville, N.C. "At Biltmore and on my own tree, we use many inexpensive 'shiny brites' as the base of the color scheme, tucked into the tree to give depth, add color and reflect the lights. The more decorative ornaments are hung closer to the tips of the branches where they can be seen and appreciated more easily," she says. Photo courtesy of Sarah's Holiday Party
