Simple revisited

Two years ago I was asked to style the house of a famous artist for a holiday spread for Yankee magazine. The problem was the shoot was in late February. You would think that holiday decor would still be plentiful but that wasn't the case. Fortunately, my keep it simple approach worked in this house too. Pomegranates were hard to come by but Whole food prevailed. Hannah Damish, stylist extraordinaire collected pine branches from her yard and created the garland for me that adorned the staircase. The small tree was potted and was picked up at the local nursery. Orchids with silver ornaments looked festive.Paperwhites  placed in terra cotta  added a definite holiday feel.who says candlestick holders need to have candles in them, try pomegranates or ornaments for a festive flair

oh, i've been there Kelly - styling Christmas shoots all year round is one of the toughest. Once, I had to get a tree flocked in April - that is not easy to accomplish. Looks just smashing!!
