A L L Is Calm
FROM the family room, open to the kitchen, the Spiers set a
second stage around their outdoor fireplace.
A potted poinsettia was appointed with glass balls,
driftwood trees, a lantern, and a star to create this timeless
vignette featuring traditional greens and a flourish of red roses.
The Design Challenge: Creating a weather-resistant focal point led
to the choice of a hand-formed evergreen wreath simply decorated
with red tinted curly willow, red pheasant feathers, and red ribbon.
“Fresh wreaths such as this will last for several weeks outside in the
cool weather,” says Dana Cook of Julia’s Florist. “Red roses do very
well outdoors during the cooler months, too.”
Frosted red vases were selected because they are easily carried
into the homeowner’s greenhouse if the temperatures dip below
freezing. Traditional winter evergreen arrangements anchor the red
brick patio hearth with a blend of Douglas fir, cedar, juniper, myrtle,
magnolia and pine.
When the kindling is lit, the Spiers family cozies ’round this heart-warming
extension of their Lowcountry home.
