Christmas came early for us when Southern Living published a feature on my home in their December issue. While the issue is now out on newsstands, I thought it would be fun to take a look behind the scenes.
I had the best time this summer shooting with them, as their team is so much fun. We had these polite, young men and ladies who helped us decorate, and guess what? They did not complain once. 🙂 Christmas decorating made easy!! With Christmas a few weeks away, I sure could use their help now.
Their team came in for a week in August to set up and shoot, and with a 10′ Christmas tree delivered directly from North Carolina, we decorated, Southern Living style.
Buffy and I decided to keep the colors simple- gold, white, with touches of purple. Lots of greenery and white flowers- We were going for texture and unique ideas versus busy and color.
Look how gorgeous this mantle arrangement is in my Living Room that Buffy and her team created. It was stunning and I wish I could have kept it alive to enjoy a little longer.
The feature ended up being several pages and shows different spaces throughout my house. It is interesting, too, how some of the colors in the rooms read differently in the magazine versus in person.
To see more photographs, pick up the December issue now. I hope you see something that inspires you this holiday season-

I am thrilled to share with you that DWI has received some great coverage in several publications over the past month.
I am excited to have been selected as a member of Coastal Living and Southern Living‘s Designer Network. The design network is made up of a group of editorially recommended designers for readers of these publications. I am thankful to be one of three designers from Alabama to be selected in this group, and I look forward to the opportunity to connect with readers of these magazines.
Hunter Douglas asked Traditional Home readers to chose from the 10 up- and- coming New Trad designers whose work they most admire. As I’ve shared with you, I am honored to have been selected, and appreciate all of the support.
Traditional Home also shared the results from the Ethan Allen virtual mood board contest based on a local landmark. If you’ll remember, I created a family room inspired by Vulcan Park and Museum. Thanks to nearly 7,000 votes from you, I won. Thank you!
