My Christmas Decorating-Sitting Room

Having just completed my Christmas decorating, I will take you all on a tour of my home to show you my decorations. I hope you will find inspiration. The first room is my little sitting room that I use for reading. Some favorite things include the vintage Mario Buatta fabric "Evelyn" on the table skirt and chaise, my new vintage Baker Chinoiserie cocktail table, a great silk pagoda pillow I won on a giveaway at Odi et Amo, and plaid silk taffeta London shades. For the holidays, I decorate the gilt Chelsea House pagoda mirror with a velvet ribbon, bring out a pretty felt flower stocking, and best of all, decorate a tabletop tree. The tree is covered in antique millinery fruits and vintage fruit ornaments. I made the millinery fruits into ornaments by wrapping the stems in beautiful ribbons. Aren't the colors wonderful! The base is a yellow metal tole Chinoiserie container. Click on the photos to enlarge and enjoy!

Having trees stored, and all done up is the way to fly. No more fresh trees for me, what a mess.
I just wrap them in plastic.
