Eddie Ross Decorates for the Holidays
Kathysue of the Good Life of Design wrote a very inspiring post about simple Christmas decor, which included a video link. The videos feature Eddie Ross sharing his design tricks for preparing a home for Christmas, using decor items from Kmart and Sears. These videos inspired me so much, so I thought I’d share them with you ;)
Mantel Decoration tips:
Eddie points out that it’s best to start with a clean slate (couldn’t agree more). He mixes real and faux greenery, a great way to still get that lovely fresh smell. I love the way he uses the wreaths for the hurricanes, what a fabulous idea! Also, I adore how he decorated the green garland with ornaments and beads. Check it out for yourself!
Christmas tree decoration tips:
Eddie places the tree in a pretty urn. This is something I have planned for my tree this year. He decorates the tree with red, green and pink (!) ornaments, mixing matte, shiny and glittery ones for a stunning result. He tops it all of with faux snow for a frosty result.
Entryway decoration tips:
Saving the best for last, here is Eddie’s fantastic tips on entryway decoration. Love the gold ornaments in the red bells, it’s the perfect touch. What a transformation!
