Local Designers Share Three Different Styles for Dressing Up Your Holiday Hearth
Modern Farmhouse, designed by Marcia Houston
For this look, pair garlands of frosted cedar with cut birch branches in a bucket, recycled metal candlesticks, birdhouses and a “Merry Christmas” sign, with a burst of big red ornaments for color. Christmas tree cutout pillows made of burlap. All items shown can be purchased at the NEST, 3210 W. Chinden Blvd. #133, Eagle. TheNestBoise.com
Heavenly Wonderland, designed by the Design House Inc.
Start with a theme, like white and angels, and a statement piece which was angel wings on an oversized mirror. Expand on that theme and add some of the hot trending items such as fur and mercury glass. The mantle needs balance, and never forget the hearth below as this needs to be decorated as well.
You can custom order these items and many more through the Design House Inc., 1257 W. River St., Boise. TheDesignHouseInc.com
Silver Bells, designed by Robin Yang
Cozy up to the fire while enjoying a nostalgic winter evening. Welcome your guests with season’s greetings as they reminisce. To complete this homey look, dress up your garland with silver bells and berry accents, add your favorite wicker decorations and invite the outdoors in.
