Gosh. That´s what I call decorations :-)

Donnie said...

That is really lovely but all I could see is having to put all that greenery up and then take it down. No way hubby would go for that....lol.....Loved all your photos. Take care.

The greenery looks so beautiful! I always loved using fresh greenery in NC! And the orange is a beautiful touch! Enjoy your day! ♥

Donna said...

Tammy, Is this YOUR home? Oh my goodness! I could never imagine living is such a beautiful place. :o)

Wow..I'm speechless (which is rare for me-Ha!) If my house looked like that, I'd start a blog for sure, just to inspire everyone!

Thanks so much for signing up to follow me. I'll start following you to. I'm looking forward to more pretty photos.

Donna @ Comin' Home :o)

Tammy @BeatriceBanks said...

Just to clarify on here- this is NOT my home. It's from Mary McDonald, an interior designer. Just dreamin'!

Beautiful photos! Lovely decorations. Season greetings from Al Ain City Daily Photo!

That represents a bunch of work...but it was worth it...so pretty! I wasn't expecting the peacock on top of the tree. Fun! The rest didn't catch me quite as much by surprise.

Thanks for following me at Hospitality Lane.
I'll be doing the same here.

SmilingSally said...

Wow, that peacock tree... and the beautiful, soft blue dining room chairs.

Happy Blue Monday, Tammy.

Cindy said...

Hello sweet B,
That house is too beautiful for words!!! Who would have thought that orange could be a Christmas color!? It's gorgeous! The green boughs, the pinecones, the fruit and the peacock feathers make for quite a colorscheme, but it is perfection! Thanks B for letting us see this amazing house.
Love and hugs, Cindy

Well, I have a few words! I love the colors! That entry and living room are so warm and inviting. Then, stepping into the lovely and subdued dining room--simply gorgeous! Makes me want to haul out the paint brushes.

Hi Tammy,
I just wanted to tell you that I edited my latest post, that you have seen, to include the view that we had of the mountains when it snowed, they are amazing, I think, anyway. I also added more mantles and joined Christmas with Victoria, just in case you might want to see it. Thanks!
Love ya, Cindy
