My Raspberry & Orange Holiday Tree in 2013

I really, really wanted to give you the tour of my house from the photo shoot 3 weeks ago and Christmas but Tracy Ayton, my awesome photographer, sent them into a national magazine and they are going to be published, hooray! I’ll confirm who it is very soon!

So all I can do is give you a sneak peek now of my Christmas Tree! I do have another very special holiday tour coming up on my blog which you’ll love!

My Holiday Tree 2013


I’ve been a wrapping and ribbon Christmas elf for 2 weeks, I’m exhausted. To wrap presents so they look perfect together takes a lot of work, I just want you to know.

Remember I told you I installed hot pink drapes in the living room to go along with my sunflower yellow sofa? Well here’s a glimpse of them as well.

Sorry I can’t show you more! Gotta run, it’s snowing and it’s only supposed to last one day and I need to build a snowman with my nephews!

Happy Weekend my lovelies! xo Maria

  1. Maria, as usual everything looks spectacular! What I’m really interested in are your awesome end/coffee tables made of branches? I want a birch end table really badly, and yours though I don’t’ think birch are gorgeous.

  2. Maria–beautifully stunning. I agree with another writer, I’d leave the whole thing up till Spring!

    Wondering, is that a real tree or artifical? If artifrical, I would appreciate source info.

    Merry Christmas-you’ve done a spectacular job of decorating!

  3. Colour me happy is right! I love, love, love your tree and your living room, too! Happy, Happy Christmas to you>

  4. I love your color combination. It looks so fresh and updated, and I much prefer it to the red/green combo. The living room looks fantastic! so airy and soft. can you share where you got those pretty round side/ coffee tables and the rug from? lovely!

  5. So much prettier than the one that I have seen which is made out of (shards) of bone China that sales for a mere …… $50,000.00. ☺ -Brenda-

  6. So pretty! Maria, I remember in an earlier post about curtains that you said your family room curtains in your family room (first picture) are a Robert Allen fabric that is a check that looks like stripes. That sounds like the Robert Allen (green) check I have chosen for curtains in my home, but my window person said I cannot have the stripes horizontal because of the width of the fabric. How did you do it? (Or maybe it is just a different fabric.)
