As a father and now a grand father, Christmas is a time to reflect on the joys of the season and the memories of times spent with friends and family and the wonder of seeing children enjoy the excitement only this time of year can bring. It is a time of thanks, for sharing and giving, but also a time to enjoy what the future may bring to one and all. Merry Christmas, Dear Friends.
I like to use a mix of natural materials for decorations at Christmas. A mix of pine, balsam, magnolia branches, eucalyptus sprayed gold, branches of berries and even branches of preserved oak leaves. It makes for a festive bouquet here in my studio.
Last week we completed filming our Sunbrella Decorating Videos with Time Warner. These videos will be completed next year 2012. Ideas for every room in the house with my Sunbrella Collection. We had the pleasure of working with the Red Camera and a crew of extremely professional, creative men and women. Thanks to you all.
This Christmas our grand daughter helped us decorate the tree and house. What a joy to have her hands help us and contribute her ideas. The paper chain garland, the pink bows for the grand daughters and the blue ribbon for our first grand son. This is what makes this season so very special.
When it comes to decorating a Christmas Tree, no one does it better than New York Designer Richard Keith Langham. His tree is probably one of the most amazing "home" trees I have ever seen, and I have seen a few! I can not even imagine how long or how many people this spectacular effort took but what a joy to share with you all. Merry Christmas Richard.
I really enjoy sharing my products for home design and photos from my travels around the world and above all bringing design inspiration to all who follow! I also continue to develop ideas for television and now the internet.
We are now dedicating our furniture designs to making our furniture ready for active families. Our Sunbrella upholstry fabrics are designed for "easy care and heavy wear"; our "Made in America" wood pieces by Gat Creek are finished with non toxic finishes that will withstand a cup of coffee, a cold drink or a baby's bottle! Our upholstery from Miles Talbott is built to take activity but with the details you expect from fine tailoring. As a grandfather and father I know what you are looking for, Welcome! to our home!
