The November/December issue is a special one for the Southern Home team. Not only are we thrilled to feature beautifully designed homes, but we also find extra joy in sharing the individual ways homeowners and designers deck their halls and trim their trees. From simple, timeless adornments like fresh garland and ribbon-clad wreaths to treasured collections and family heirlooms, there are endless, unique ways of displaying holiday cheer. It is our hope that you’ll find yourself curled up in a cozy space with a cup of coffee or tea as you learn more about each of these special homes. As you flip through these pages, you’ll travel to Alabama where a designer dresses a glorious home on the lake and adds plenty of festivity. A New Orleans art and textile designer decorates for the holidays as a form of artistic expression. A design duo takes on creating the perfect abode for their sister, while in Arkansas a designer unifies rooms and brightens a home for a project that feels intentional and cohesive. We send you our warmest wishes and hope you enjoy the happiest of holidays!
