From the subtle to the spectacular, seasonal decorations can run the gamut. We believe in trusting your instinct for living beautifully by selectively adding layers that amplify, rather than overwhelm, your existing design ethos. For us, the Tetons provide the quintessential holiday backdrop of pillowy snow accented by twinkly lights and bundled merriment. Living within such a scenic snow globe, we trend towards a discretely dramatic approach to holiday décor. Our strategy for decking the halls follows our year-round fascination with texture and tonality. Texture can take the form of assemblages of wintry objects found in nature, while tonality can be expressed in architectural arrangements—branches of winter berries (hypericum, tallow or privet berries), garlands of magnolia, bay leaves and eucalyptus, fans of falcon feathers. Wreaths—ever appreciated—lend grace and glamour to thresholds. A timeless manifestation of both texture and tone: Arrange pinecones or berry branches within a vintage Indonesian wooden bowl for a spray of color and cheer.
When sourcing materials, turn to nature for inspiration. For interior programs centered around communion, the focus can become festive flare on tabletops and mantle pieces. Our perennial consideration of place can guide you as well: notice what foliage lies just outside your front door—sage bundles, dried thistles, spruce boughs—and stage them around candles and hurricanes. Cozy confines can become merry with candles and diffusers with natural essences of fir and clove; we adore the luxurious aromas of legendary French candlemaker Cire Trudon. Family compounds may require more durable decorations such as holiday accent pillows, Santa-hued throws, or hardy installations like an antique Belgian sled or vintage metal vessel adorned with greenery.
Our affinity for natural texture extends to trimming trees. Ever family oriented, we approach trees as albums that grow in joyful scope with each holiday season. As such, we begin with ornaments that dangle memories, whether handmade, collected on travels, or received as gifts. Then, we add quiet elements reflective of place: wood garlands, pinecone sticks, owl clips, burlap ribbon, wildlife ornaments, metallic accents and soft lights like Wyoming nights. Finally, we wrap the trunk in a chunky, knitted blanket, bundling up the base as we would our bodies on a cold winter evening. To spread the coziness, we drape an oversized garland—matching the evergreen of our tree—over the mantle, a dramatic flourish that epitomizes our lush natural approach to the holidays.
