The houses best suited to the decorations of Christmas lie at the extremes of the design spectrum. Either they emit a warm and cozy vibe from details such as paneled walls, intricate tapestries, and roaring fireplaces, or, like this house in the Museum District of Houston, they are minimalistic, providing a blank canvas for the display of holiday trappings. The simple symmetrical windows and lofty rooms of this Mediterranean-style house offer even more decorating options both inside and out.
