Well the holiday season has begun. Halloween is barely put away and I find myself consumed by holiday decor. I am so excited to once again be fortunate enough to officially open our holiday season to you, our amazing customers!
Year after year I am asked the same question , “so what is big this season??” I always struggle with answering as I find even though I look for the latest and greatest magazines and blogs for inspiration, I tend to shy away from what is “trendy”! I am definitely partial to timeless pieces, ornaments and decorations that are different, look like they have history and silver and gold is usually the base of my palette. I love white, mixed in with wood and metals, soft feathers and of course birds off any kind!!
I have been VERY busy these last few months visiting and consulting with clients about updating their homes. I am always so flattered when i receive a call requesting an in home consultation. I have fallen in love with my job all over again, I am excited to put story boards together, pick out colours and move furniture around. I pride myself on being able to work with any budget and by using as much of the clients own belongings as I can. Introducing one or two new things into a clients home and later hearing that they once again love their space gives me so much pleasure.
I have recently been asked to edit a beautiful garden room with a huge library in it for one of our lovely customers. It was quite a challenge to go through hundreds of cookbooks as this client is an avid chef!. I was amazed at how many gorgeous books she had hidden in this extensive library. I managed to showcase some of her absolute best books and leave some other shelves to highlight some of her most precious collectibles. This was just one of many vignettes that I created. The great thing about creating these seasonal vignettes is that it can easily be turned into a holiday one. Simple changes, like adding cedar or magnolia is enough to change the entire feel of the room.
So back to Christmas reality, please stay tuned to so much more!!! We hope you enjoy decorating as much as we do! Please follow us on Facebook Rizo Lola & Company, and see all our new and wonderful finds!
Cheers to a great season ahead.
