A Tale of Two Christmases-Sitting Room

Sitting Room| In the sitting room, the designer played up the rich jewel tones of gold, blue and teal. “I switch out my regular groupings and objets d’art at Christmas time and add candles in blues and golds along with trinkets and trays,” she says. The starburst mirror and other gold statement pieces add warmth and glamour. A gray, mirrored credenza functions as a drinks station for entertaining guests and storing glassware.

Tree | The tree is decorated in gold and teal baubles, ribbons and peacock feathers. “I love the smell of a real Christmas tree,” Currie-Taylor says.
