Christmas in a Williamsburg Wonderland

Williamsburg Christmas home

 
Christmas is well remembered and cherished long after the last wreath has been hung and the final ornament placed on the tree in this circa-1810 house with a white picket fence, in a place that time has all but forgotten. The duo, owners of the shop Seasons of Williamsburg—renowned for its floral arrangements, decorative pieces, and estate antiques—commence the holiday season before Thanksgiving and don’t take down their home embellishments until Valentine’s Day.

The owner’s extensive decorating efforts conjure treasured memories of special people and events. “Every ornament—we have more than 1,100—reminds us of a friend or family member or a trip we took,” Kendall says. He opens a box and unwraps a blue glass ball painted with the image of a toy train. The bauble used to hang on his grandparents’ tree and now has a special place on his own.

  3. Of all the Victoria articles, this is by far one of my very favourites! Not only is it about the Christmas holidays, but the overall design and feel of this home just radiates sophistication, charm and comfort!

    I bought a second copy of this issue to cut out this article spread to keep in a design scrapbook I keep for future decorating ideas. The classic design and cozy feeling of this home just never goes out of style!

    Christmas 2016 is seven months away from today, and already I am excited to look through the holiday issues for decorating and entertaining ideas!
