New Beach Villa Makes Way for Décor Reimagined:
When a treasured client relocated from Pasadena to Lido Isle, Newport Beach, we were asked to restyle their holiday décor to complement their beautiful new Mediterranean-style home. The change in home style, geographic location and volume of space gave justification to alter the color palette to cool and neutral winter whites, teal blues and mossy greens that took creative direction from the prevalent sand and water elements.
Awaiting Embellishment and Installing the Look:
Two spiral staircases and 2 gracious fireplaces beckoned for adornment. We obliged. Garlands were noted with twinkling lights and playful water-themed elements like fishing nets, shells, sequins and mini-surfboards (along with crystals and ornaments in a fanciful animal print motif already in our client's collection) that set the stage not just for Christmas, but overall Winter décor that would last through mid-January. This family’s heirloom collection of nutcrackers became sentries over the cabinets, end tables, kitchen counters, and bar areas. Trees were given the treatment with sourced Tommy Bahama-themed ornaments and festive fishing nets instead of traditional tinsel. Tables all through the house were set with crafted centerpieces that showed off themed objects (think seashells and starfish) in clear bowls, gold platters and glass domes. Cinnamon sticks, glittered pinecones and sequined faux foliage combined with fresh greenery to remind residents and guests alike of the warmth the holiday represents. The house was transformed into a seaside winter wonderland!!
The "Ooohs" and "Ahhhs":
Cheery holiday thanks to our clients for trusting us to revamp their Christmas decor to usher in a new era of style and whimsy in their villa by the sea!
