For a foyer with 30-foot high ceilings, Christmas decorations need to be grand. Two strands were woven together to make a thicker garland to trim the staircase. Burgundy and gold are rich, beautiful accents to the greenery.
Katrina Giles jazzes up her Christmas staircase with holiday garland, silver ribbon and natural pinecones. She adds silk greenery to the pinecones and coats them with silver metallic paint for a shimmery look that will bring holiday cheer all season long.
Garland is a festive holiday decoration for a staircase, but make sure to match its scale with the space. A double garland accented with red flowers, bows and gold ornaments meets this foyer's grandeur.
The stockings were hung by the staircase with care — with zip ties to be exact. Secure the stockings in place so they hang just below the garland. Add a colorful bauble to identify each recipient. Take it a step further by personalizing each ornament with a name.
Peacock feathers were the inspiration for the Christmas tree and decorations in rock star Dee Snider's home. Metallic shades of blue and green with gold accents can be found on the tree as well as the wreaths, stockings and staircase garland.

The floating concrete staircase is one of Luke’s favorite features in the house — shout-out to Clint for helping make it structurally sound. It’s spruced up for the holidays with cypress garland and black-and-white bows, while wrapped presents ready to be doled out to extended family do double duty as decor.
