H&H’s Joel Bray gives Marilyn Denis’s home an elegant and festive makeover for Christmas. Steal his decorating tips for creating a sophisticated, traditional holiday look.

Joel brought in rich jewel tones with ornaments, pillows, satin ribbon and smaller accessories to complement the warm neutral walls and furniture in Marilyn’s classic home. Wreaths and garlands were repeated throughout the house to create flow in the open-concept spaces. A mix of texture and color, plus customized Christmas crackers, make the tabletop perfect for a festive dinner party.
