The holidays can be a busy season for all of us – from festive Christmas parties to family gatherings, often with the heart of the home on full display. It’s the time to bring an extra dose of sparkle + shine, with a splash of seasonal cheer to blend with the home’s existing design theme. This is the case for Angie Adamczyk and family in New Berlin, Wisconsin. Angie has recently been partnering with the Design Crew at west elm Milwaukee on designing elements of their home’s interiors in the living, dining and kitchen spaces – where the family spends the majority of their time together. For the holidays, Home Stylist Erin Yates took on the exciting, more seasonal project of getting the Adamczyk’s home ready for Christmas. Tour the space below and see how the House on Prairie Lane is getting in the holiday spirit.
“When styling Angie’s home, I wanted to be sure it was a reflection of her and the pieces already existing in her home. Overall, her home is light and airy with accents in a deep navy, and her existing Christmas décor followed in this theme. I decided to continue in the same direction by adding in touches of white and silver, while also bringing in several gold statement pieces that would warm up the space and that touch of holiday sparkle. The color combination of the white, pink, and navy trees as well as the gold leafy garland pulled everything together by making Christmas décor feel like it could’ve been there year around,” mentions Erin.
“Erin was so much fun to work with and had so many great ideas! She was such an inspiration and put together a beautiful arrangement of Christmas decor, that fit perfectly with the style of our home,” says Angie. “I’m hoping to work with her again on a few more rooms in our house.”
“The major benefit to using west elm holiday trim + decorations is the ability to carry one cohesive look through multiple areas of your home,” explains Erin. “For example, we use the paper trees around the fireplace as larger statement pieces, and then tied the tree in by hanging several of the paper ornaments from the same collection. Paper ornaments were also mixed into the centerpiece display on the dining table which accompanied the gold candle stick holders and gold garland. To bring it full circle, we used the gold garland and candle stick holders on the mantel. Using different pieces with a similar color scheme or from the same collection helps to bring everything together.”
