Dressed to Impress

Birmingham-based floral designer Buffy Hargett Miller of Buffy Hargett Flowers has decorated the home of her longtime friends Linda and Charlie Israel at Christmastime for about five years. When the Israels were asked to participate in the 10th anniversary of a holiday home tour, Buffy dressed the abode with natural touches like fresh fruit, classic magnolia cuttings, and snow-white flowers.

Friends new and old are put at ease as they approach the Israels’ warm and welcoming entryway. “Whenever there’s a gathering, we’ll make a fire for people to feel relaxed when they walk up,” Linda says. Festive throw pillows on wicker rocking chairs contribute to the sense of coziness.
