~ A Versailles Christmas in California ~

~ A Christmas Season in Versailles ~

Ho, Ho, Ho Everyone! What a fabulous week it has been as we officially kicked off the Christmas season. We thought we would share the first residence we have done thus far, and yes Virginia, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

We have been a busy team decorating a home last week for four days straight! Our client's estate was built with their love and passion for Italy in mind and heavily designed with French influences every step of the way. Truly a French and Italian delight in the greater Northern California region.
Bonjour and enjoy! Only 11 more homes to go this next week!
Warmest wishes and Happy Holidays from our homes to yours!

Debra and the tfep&d team

Our client's formal dining room was once decorated in all red hues for the holiday season, something we as an overall design team, we honestly did not feel worked, nor complimented, their upcoming holiday social events at their estate for the month of December.

After discussing with our clients our thoughts we encouraged them to tap into the rich golds and creams; crushed mercury glass; golden and glittered laden natural pinecones and artichokes; Swarovski crystals and strands; bulb ornaments in golden glass or etched with French influences; gold beaded tassels; and Midori ribbons to compliment their existing decor and really make this room shine for holidays!
And it does indeed do that!!!!
It just took one collective day of shopping; gathering; and some fun craft tasks to pull their formal dining room together the following day. Great job tres fabu team!
Again, Happy Holidays everyone!
