Tudor Holiday, Part III

We’ve previously shared photos from the exterior and main living areas of a prominent Tudor Revival home located in Mountain Brook, Alabama, which we designed the interiors for and recently decorated for the holidays.  We’ll conclude a peek around this beautiful home today with a few photos from the Guest Cottage.

 Connected on the ground floor via a porte cochere, we dressed the front door of the Cottage with fresh garland.  We like to double the thickness of garland to achieve the full effect shown here…single widths tend to look a little skimpy.  Just like around the front door, we added giant pine cones for a natural flair.

Inside the Cottage, which includes a large Living Area styled after an old English-style Great Hall, is a towering Christmas tree that displays over 30 years of family ornaments–many of which were handmade by the homeowners’ now grown children.



Along the loft railing which overlooks the double height Great Hall area, we strung more garland and pine cones.


Atop the antique French limestone fireplace, an arrangement of mercury votives are mixed with fresh magnolia and unique beaded glass trees, which we found at Henhouse Antiques in Mountain Brook’s English Village.


You’ve seen all there is to see of this home’s Holiday decor, but there’s plenty more left to show you.  Tomorrow we’ll share some photos from another Mountain Brook home, this one beautifully decked out in charcoal, white and hot pink!  Bess and Anna Kay are at Lake Martin decorating a home we recently finished today, and Doug is scheduled to decorate the exterior of a wonderful Spanish Revival villa in Birmingham’s Redmont neighborhood tomorrow.  Plus, we still need to show you the inside of Paige’s house and Doug’s house, all dressed up for the season…stay tuned, there’s a lot more to come!
