It’s always nice to hear from an old client so we were excited when the owner of this wonderful 1920′s Spanish-Revival villa in Birmingham’s Redmont neighborhood called and asked if we’d do some holiday decorating on the home’s exterior. Doug had worked with our sister company Dungan Nequette Architects to make some alterations to the home’s interior and to spruce up the outside a couple of years ago.
This house is seriously cool on the outside…low slung with a great red tile roof, original ironwork and a very prominent site just down from the crest of Red Mountain. Doug selected very simple and elegant decorations that complement the home’s design and its simplicity.
Mixed evergreen wreaths with dark crimson bows and simple red berry sticks are displayed on the windows across the front of the home. We aren’t often a fan of red Christmas decor, but here this more sophisticated take on the traditional Christmas color works well with the tan stucco and dark greenish brown windows. Those shield plaques, by the way, are original to the house…how cool are those?!
Simple, easy and elegant…the perfect complement to this wonderful home!
