Beautiful Yet Casual Christmas Tree

Fill your tree with family keepsakes.

This airy, welcoming foyer — open to the family and living rooms — is large enough to hold a Christmas tree without disrupting flow. The homeowners’ daughters decorate the tree with ornaments they make or collect during family vacations. Original to the house, the diamond-patterned inlaid-oak floor offers natural warmth, while two iconic pendant lights add sculptural presence.
