Modern Glamour

This is probably my favorite Christmas tree ever, these are SO my colors...

I fell in love with this room last Christmas season when I saw it in the Nov/Dec '08 issue of Cottage Living (their last issue). It has been my inspiration since, there are so many details that make this room special. From the disco ball topper with the coordinating disco balls tied to the presents, the urn tree base, the perfect shades of aqua on the gorgeous flocked tree, to the dog's collar which perfectly coordinates with the rest of the room, I love it all! After seeing this photo last year, I had wanted to flock our artificial tree (I'm not even sure that would have worked), but luckily I found a beautiful vintage white tree instead which made my husband very, very happy (= no mess).

Here are more details of the room:

I think I'm finally finished decorating my tree, I'll be sure to post photos soon. What is your holiday style? Do you stick with a color scheme or do you go with a more sentimental approach?


  1. oooooohhhhh my...that is so, so gorgeous!!! i'm desperate for white tree.

    fyi...i tagged you in a little quiz! you're it! ;)

  2. I really Love this room. I wish we could have a christmas that looked like this, I like the turquoise a lot more than deep red and green colors!

  3. This room is just dreamy. Thanks for a great post.

  4. I loved this tree too! And it just makes me extra sad that Cottage Living is gone!!
