Welcome to this New Orleans home, where Lauren Brennan Brower, a member of the famed culinary family, welcomes the season with traditional trimmings.
The epitome of Southern charm, this grand abode dressed in traditional red and green exudes an air of warmth and hospitality.
In the air, there’s indeed a feeling of Christmas—with a little help from white lights, holly berries, poinsettias, candles, and a collection of caroler figurines. Windows and mirrors bear beautiful wreaths, and velvet ribbon adds to the timeless appeal of this décor theme.
Elegantly appointed, this historic home was made for entertaining. In the dining room, tall candelabra and Christmas Tree china by Spode say this is a special occasion. Simple rings of greenery and berries give the chandelier a bit of pizzazz.
In the kitchen and family room, the look remains festive but is more relaxed to suit the spaces. Handmade stockings and a large tree bedecked in happy hues play up the familial feel, while felt place mats, casual themed-motif dinnerware, and napkins embroidered with toy soldiers only add to the merriment.
Stylized angels in gold flank the fireplace, and an antique dough bowl filled with fresh fruit nods to holiday traditions of years past. Coordinating with the homeowner’s collection of blue-and-white pieces is a tiny Nativity in the same hues to round out the classic holiday displays.
