Getting ready for Christmas

Friday, November 30, 2012

The second Thanksgiving is over people move right into Christmas, and decorating for the holiday.  For a long time I resisted and waited until at least the first week of December to pass so I could feel the season coming on. The air changes and the leaves are truly gone after Thanksgiving.  It starts to feel like December.  Over the years I have given in, earlier and earlier, and now on December 1, I will start to DECK THE HALLS!   I felt inspired by some photos I have seen recently.

December will be a fun month for us here at Real in Darien.  We have a fun CONTEST coming up, and we will be showcasing the 12 PICKS FOR CHRISTMAS.  Maybe a set of house keys will find their way under your tree!



Merry Christmas. Nothing like lights to light up Santa’s path.

Great Idea for an outdoor urn. Thank you Martha, you always do come up with a Good Thing!

Gorgeous! and so welcoming.

Alessandra Branca’s signature red touch. Such a wonderful and welcoming hearth!

Stephen Sills…keep it about the spirit of giving. But, these presents do look so elegant and fabulous under the tree.

Focus on the ornaments! They make the best hostess gift.

LOVE LOVE this interior door. Christmas in California at Mary MacDonald’s.  One of my favorites.

Christmas… You can count on color at Tory Burch’s house!

Carolyn Roehm’s signature blue and white is gorgeous.


Ahhhh! Miles. Always fabulous.

rushing through the snow…Very excited for a fun and festive Christmas. With any luck it will be a white one!
