Setting A Festive Table

When it comes to holiday entertaining there are many options for creating a festive tablescape that diverge from expected color schemes. As Ina Garten of the Barefoot Contessa demonstrates in the following video, you can take a more subtle approach that is both simple and sophisticated.

A Holiday Touch

Holiday Staircase

A simple holiday display is often all that is needed to convey a festive atmosphere in a space. Incorporating elements from nature is a great way to set the mood without drifting into the realm of tackiness.

I think this photo illustrates the concept well. A lovely traditional home is enhanced with a garland of evergreens festooning the stairway along what is probably an entry hall.

Gold and red accents in the display pick up on the color tones in the stair runner and create a warm counterpoint to the cool, blue walls.

Urban Sophistication

The chic drama of this dining room brings to mind an elegant penthouse in New York City. The sleek lines, fine finishes and touches of sparkle create a sense of cosmopolitan glamor.

A large mirror behind the tufted couch opens up the room and gives the feeling that the space is much deeper than it is. The mirrored sunburst layered on top is a nice touch; it makes the whole room shimmer.

Fine dining furniture exhibits a contemporary take on neo-classical elements and creates the perfect spot for a friendly card game.

So, take a seat and pour a drink. It's going to be a great evening!

Create A Neutral Space With Zip

If you think a neutral wall color is the surest route to a bland and boring decorating scheme, think again! It can actually be the perfect canvas for an exciting and colorful masterpiece.

This room illustrates the concept. Light, creamy walls provide a calm background for pops of citrus lemon, coral and lime which are all brought together in the print of one of the throw pillows.

Texture is another aspect of this design that gives it life - from the intricacies of the coral to the wispy willow twigs flanking the fireplace.

Neutral wall color provides a wealth of versatility. By swapping out a few of the decor pieces for items from another color palette, you get a whole new look without spending a fortune.
