Designer Alice Cramer includes a soft and cuddly fur throw at the foot of the bed in this muted, grey-toned bedroom. As Cramer attests, the holidays don't have to be complicated. Use things you already have and just add the bling with seasonal touches. "Nothing prettier to a tabletop," says Cramer, "than simple glass containers of different sizes filled with cranberries, red berries, greenery and floating votive candles. Mix it in with silver service pieces filled with white flowers and various candlesticks." It's a look that works for a beautiful tabletop, or in accent tables in a guest room.
