A Grand and Gracious Historic Home

In the dining room, a gracious new open floor plan and refined architectural details combine for an elegant mood during the Christmas season and throughout the year.

For the interiors, she continues the use of native plants and greenery with drooping swags of fresh cedars, boxwoods garlands, and magnolia branches. Multiple wreaths hang from windows, furniture, and mirrors. “The great thing about using native greenery is that more cuttings from the yard are always at hand to refresh arrangements and garlands,” says Molster.

Although the home offers an overall consistent flow of holiday décor, each room boasts one individualized, eye-catching feature that reflects the color palette of the space and is in keeping with its scale. Blues and greens combine with oversize snowflakes on a festive tree in the family room, while a loose arrangement of flowers, lemons, limes, oranges, berries, and greenery spills over onto the dining room table. Such focal pieces mix well with antiques, comfy upholstered pieces, and layers of textures, setting the stage for family and friends to delight in the joys of the season.
