Raleigh is full of talented and design-savvy women who add such wonderful touches to their home. Here are a few views of the delightful decor, right next door.
|Home of Mandy Moore |
Wonderful use of simple elements to create the refined. Note the fresh cranberries in the hurricanes. Elegance is in the details!
|Moore's centerpiece continues in the simple approach. Roses in champagne glasses - I love it!|
|Nothing says Christmas like Nandina berries. The scale of this arrangement set in front of the mirror grabs your attention as soon as you set foot in the Moore home.|
|Home of decorator, Kelly Jones.|
Simple, tailored mantle.
|Jones' gifts. Love packages with a theme!|
|Home of Mrs. Bonnie Cerwin |
This elegant antique gains holiday flair with the rich garland draped over top. Note the gilded angel on top. Superb!
|Again, Cerwin adds glory to her antiques with this similarly themed- garland draped over the gilded mirror.|
|Perhaps my favorite Christmas tree. Adore the fact that it spans 2 floors and is the focal point of the foyer. Note also how the colors and antique pieces are showcased in the neutral pallet of Mrs. Cerwin's home.|
|Great view of Cerwin's mantle. She says she changes it every year.|
|Another view of Allen living room, with added plus of precious child.|
|Close up of Allen's minimalist nativity scene.|
|Close-up of one Magnificent Mantle. This is definitely one of my favorite mantles of the season.|
|Wonderful example of Allen's feminine touch.|
As a footnote: Christina Allen is the daughter of Mrs. Cerwin. How interesting to see where the sense of design carries over. What a legacy! And to see how both homes are graced with such feminine sophistication is really a treat.
All, thanks for sharing your homes with me. It was a real delight!
