Haute Holidays!


I was in the city this weekend for just a few hours and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed the shops in their Holiday Best.  Pottery Barn, Crate and Barrel, Williams Sonoma; are all decked for the Season.  The clothing stores are packed with sweaters and dresses that glitter with gold and silver.  This week we are putting our trees up.  Yup, two trees. I am getting the kids their own tree to decorate with pasta and popcorn, Power Rangers and Barbie!  Which leaves me free to decorate as I desire. 
This beautiful home belongs to Seattle based designer Susan Marinello.  Her and her daughter go all out decorating for the season.  Simple and elegant, just the way I like it!
