Haute Holiday Tree

The holiday decor of Lindsay Mens, a senior designer with Sarah Richardson Design and offscreen member of the HGTV show, Sarah's House, has a crisp, wintry appeal.

A luxurious white feather boa and jewel-like ornaments on the Christmas tree work with the apartment's elegant mix of soft whites, cool blues and lots of shine. Collecting Christmas decorations, like the ones inherited from her grandmother, has been a lifelong hobby for Mens. The generous Ikea shelving system in this living room keeps things organized while offering plenty of space to display family photos, vases and bowls.

See more photos in our Christmas decorations gallery. Enjoy more shots of Mens' space, also, or view the entire apartment in our November 2008 issue.
