5. Red Letter Day
This crimson-strewn room exudes the classic spirit of the holidays. Stockings in a coordinating mix of plush garnet-patterned fabrics line a mantel adorned with a garland of cypress and magnolia, intertwined with sumptuous red ribbon. A collection of ornaments keeps with the theme and includes a medley of metallic balls, shimmery beads, hand-stitched fabric cones, and a sparkly star topper. And to finish off this brilliant monochromatic display are gifts wrapped in a variety of solid papers and topped with extravagant bows in the season’s timeless and much-adored shade.
