Center Hall

The family gathers at the back of the house Christmas morning to open gifts beneath the big white fir decorated simply with ball ornaments.

See details on the following slide.

 

Christmas Tree Details

Icy silver and blue decorations adorn the center hall’s towering tree, offering a refreshing alternative palette to traditional reds and golds.

Exterior

Trim added by architect Christian Zapatka brings a classic, sculptural look to the windows.

 

Foyer

Flanked by period Swedish chairs, an amaryllis bouquet atop an antique Swedish console table welcomes the extended family home for the holidays. The mirror is from David Iatesta.

Living Room

A kindred pale beauty unites custom club chairs upholstered in hand-blocked painted fabric with an antique Swedish ottoman.

Living Room Bench

A Manuel Canovas fabric covers the Niermann Weeks bench centered between the windows. “You can work in more seating with a neutral palette,” says designer Frank Babb Randolph.

 

Living Room Bay Window

A small fir in a bay window displays Marilyn Hannigan’s handmade “Cherishables” ornaments.

 

Dining Room

A mahogany table and Swedish-style chairs are from Tone-on-Tone. Traditional style mixes with modern touches to honor the 1930s fieldstone farmhouse and usher in the family’s new holiday traditions.

 

Dining Room Details

Antiques. Sferra green linen napkins, small red tulip arrangements, and antique lettuce-leaf plates inject touches of holiday color into the setting of white vintage reticulated plates from Mottahedeh.

 

Dining Room Details

Silver candlesticks and the antique chandelier contribute to the elegant look. An antique candlestick holder with glass hurricane bring a touch of colonial tradition to the table.

 

Portrait

Homeowner Judy Jeffress reads a holiday story to her 6-year-old grandson, Henry.

 

Mantel

A holiday display goes natural with magnolia leaves, spruce, and pinecones accented with silver.

 

Door

Multiple-paned windows flanking the door add to the home’s 1930s-vintage charm. The simplicity of the front-door wreath trimmed with silver ribbon is echoed throughout the home’s interiors.

 

Dining Room Detail

The pale Swedish antique chest and a mirror that reflects the chandelier are from Tone on Tone Antiques. Mercury glass candlesticks and vintage glasses add seasonal shimmer.

 

Sunroom

In this inviting room, a period Swedish ottoman joins a Holly Hunt sofa sprinkled with pillows covered in a pretty Schumacher floral for quiet color.

 

Sunroom Details

The sunroom’s antique Swedish side table whispers holiday greetings with a cachepot of winter jasmine and a glass bowl from Simon Pearce filled with decorative balls from Target.
