Pratt & Lambert Blueberry 26-16
Live Boldly BRING THE “WOW” WITH COLOR
’m so inspired by the Synthesize and Boundless Palettes from Pratt & Lambert’s 2018 Color Forecast because they demonstrate how vivid color hues can energize a space. My clients depend on me to create interiors that are traditional but with a twist of modernity. To achieve this goal, I manipulate the room’s elements with judicious use of color on the walls and trim, furnishings, artwork and finishing touches. Like an orchestra, colors should play well together and ultimately produce harmony for the eyes.

ebster’s Dictionary defines the term “colorful” as full of variety or interest. How perfectly this describes the role color plays in interior design and decoration! I truly believe that our homes should be visually interesting: a reflection of how we see ourselves, and how we live within this world. Bold color is a fantastic way to celebrate the joy of life and as an interior designer, I’ve always been an ambassador for vibrant color palettes for my clients’ projects.
“I believe that the most memorable rooms are the ones that make you go ‘hmm.’ For example, lacquering traditional millwork with a rock-star color can truly transport a space into the realm of the ‘Wow.’ In this client’s library, Pratt & Lambert’s Blueberry 26-16 is used to create a powerful backdrop for a medley of books and personal collections.”
Presented by Pratt & Lambert Woodland 20-19
Note: Pratt & Lambert color names and numbers may vary by retailer location.
“In the foyer of this metro-Detroit manse, Woodland 20-19 produces a jolt of welcoming energy for guests. The color is used judiciously so it doesn’t overpower the senses. It also works as a great foil for the stark white painted trim, furnishings and lighting selections.”
ELEVATE WITH ACCOLADE Your sofa becomes a showpiece. Your wall hangings become a gallery. Your lighting becomes ambiance. You know the right wall color will bring out the best in your home. Accolade® premium paint brings out the best in color, with a stunning, durable ﬁnish that wears impeccably, inside and out. For a retailer near you, visit prattandlambert.com.

EDITOR’S PORTRAIT: PETER KRUMHARDT
he holidays are an opportunity to see our homes in a whole new light—literally and ﬁguratively. As we deck our halls with boughs and baubles, twinkling strands and ﬂickering ﬂames, our everyday rooms take on an extra level of splendor. The homes in this issue are resplendent in their holiday ﬁnery, for sure, but only in equal measure to their interior design. In fact, for these homes, the holiday beautifully complements the everyday. In “Sky Blue Heaven,” page 72, an Atlanta family put up a poolside Christmas tree on their veranda so they can celebrate the season outdoors. It’s layered in shatterproof ornaments (genius) for a blue ombré effect (envy). The home’s crystalline blueand-green holiday palette lets the soft hues and intriguing textures of the furnishings shine through, indoors and out. Meanwhile, in “Clearly Christmas,” page 62, a Chicago interior freshly minted in sophisticated black and white positively radiates with trees, tabletops, wreaths, and mantels festooned in similar hues—accented with a juicy touch of deep berry red. For this musically gifted family, it’s perfect harmony. Down south in Alabama, in “Holiday Whispers,” page 90, the Dixon home is steeped in antiques and collections, all complemented by ornaments in amber, umber, ivory, and the brown-green hues of magnolia leaves. It’s a holiday welcome that doesn’t overpower the home’s graceful, antiques-ﬁlled interior. For a complete color palette contrast, tour designer Tobi Fairley’s newly remodeled home in “Life in Color,” page 82. As fans and her social media followers would expect, the decorations are as vibrant as her signature palettes. Do you see what I see? The colors of spun-sugar ribbon candy—the old-fashioned treat my grandmother set out every Christmas. I couldn’t resist its glistening hues and mix of fanciful patterns. And I always chose the spearmint one ﬁrst! While decor in these homes is quite diverse, in each case it’s faithful to the homeowners’ traditions. I think this kind of adherence to a classic backdrop gives each of us the conﬁdence to mix in something new, add zest, and ensure our homes reﬂect our times while also nodding to points in history. Don’t we all look back to help deﬁne what we love? But the true glow comes when our homes are alight with friends, family, storytelling, and traditions. Beautiful interiors become a foil for all the things that are truly important. It’s the people and events of the season that help us take away a true sense of a life well lived, of what it means to ﬁll a home with joy. To wit, don’t miss our holiday gift guide (page 20), geared toward the adventurer, the sentimentalist, the Luddite, and the magpie (who can resist?) in your life. And, at the end of one year and the beginning of a new one, our “Social Network” story (page 28) will help you set a goal to up your correspondence game. From thank-you notes and New Year’s invitations to stationery and recipe cards, elegant paper is a way to extend the grace of the season the whole year through. From all of us at Traditional Home, sink into this festive issue, share your home with those you love, and enjoy the splendor of the season.

Pretty papers lend a welcome personal touch in our digital age
he notion that paper has permanently made its way to the trash bin while technology dazzles with glitz and graphics is, well, a bunch of rubbish. Christmas is a great time to give the gift of lovely papers—and promote the art of handwritten correspondence. Celebrate the season with printed invitations to parties and elegant menu cards. Treat friends to beautiful stationery, writing instruments, pencil cups, a letter opener, or a customprinted calendar—maybe even a stately writing desk. Welcome houseguests with cards that display your home’s Wi-Fi name and
password, and send them home with a recipe card from your feast. Later on, show your appreciation for special gifts with hand-penned thank-you notes—and make a resolution to practice this personal, meaningul gesture the whole year through. It’s a simple thing that will long be remembered. “I love the romance of paper and its ability to convey someone’s personal style,” New York interior designer Billy Ceglia says. “Note cards, gift tags, and other paper goods require more thought and care than anything digital,” he says. “Plus, beautiful paper always makes me write my best.”

Tourtière, a pork, beef, and root vegetable pie encased in flaky pastry, is traditionally served as the main course on Christmas Eve. Arugula and fresh Brussels sprouts dressed with champagne vinaigrette accompany the pie on “Vito Nesta” plates from Artemest. For dessert, there’s a simplified version of the traditional bûche de Noël (Christmas log). The scrumptious caramel and chocolate cake roll gains elegance from torn edible gold sheets. The dessert sits on the “Julianna” platter from Blue Pheasant. Takeaway cookies are presented in an elegant ivory, green, and blush wrapping that repeats the palette of the dinner.

As Seen on TV
Before settling in for the big game—or a long winter’s binge-watch—now might be the time to spring for a new television
BY SALLY FINDER WEEPIE ILLUSTRATION BY MICHAEL WITTE
Why would I want to buy a new TV?
[a] Because the picture quality has gotten
so much better—and a great TV set is now so much more affordable. “The new thing in TV is Ultra HD Premium, or 4K HDR,” says Shelly Palmer, tech guru and CEO of The Palmer Group. “It’s the new standard in consumer video monitors and television sets—4K sets have four times the pixels of good old-fashioned HDTVs and come in practical sizes.”
What’s so cool about Ultra HD?
[a] “Picture quality is extraordinary,”
Palmer says. “The wide color gamut and high dynamic range of Ultra HD Premium (4K HDR) is breathtaking.”
46 TH December/January 2018
I’m not going to buy a TV now and then find out next year that something better has come along, right?
[a] “There’s no point in waiting,” Palmer
says. This technology is going to stick around for a while. “If you are in the market for a television set, go ahead and buy the biggest 4K HDR set you can afford.”
What shows can I watch in 4K?
[a] “You can best enjoy 4K via streaming
services like Netflix or Amazon Prime,” Palmer says. (Yep, you can already put House of Cards, Stranger Things, and Breaking Bad on the 4K binge-watch list.) “Cable and satellite companies also have
some offerings. And more content becomes available every day.” Plus, no worries if your favorite show has yet to debut in glorious 4K. “All 4K sets up-convert, which means they will take a regular HD signal and make it look great,” Palmer says.
What are my best bets for a great set?
[a] “Look for the Ultra HD Premium or 4K
HDR logo on the TV,” Palmer says. “Stick with well-known manufacturers, such as Samsung, LG, or Sony. Cheaper is not always better. At the low end of the market, the quality of smart TV functions may be severely diminished. If you buy a cheap smart TV, what you’re really getting is a dumb TV with an obsolete computer inside.”

Tile Style A dramatic barrelvault tiled ceiling crowns an Atlanta kitchen that gracefully gathers a family of six, their two dogs, and oodles of company WRITTEN BY SALLY FINDER WEEPIE PHOTOGRAPHY BY EMILY JENKINS FOLLOWILL PRODUCED BY LISA MOWRY
arents to a brood of four boys, Jennifer and David Higgins know a thing or two about homework. And they patiently did theirs before opting to build a new house in Atlanta—designed around a kitchen with a soaring arched ceiling. “We looked at 56 houses before we decided to build,” Jennifer says. “I saw some barrel-vault ceilings during our search, and I wanted one—on a much larger scale.”
48 TH December/January 2018
Architect Stan Dixon and designer Clay Snider made the drama happen, creating a spacious, family-friendly kitchen crowned with glimmering tile. “It’s handmade with a slightly irregular shape and more texture than standard subway tile,” Snider says. As a counterpoint to the rows of rectangular tile, Snider brought in a sisal wallpaper with an overscale blossom pattern that suits the size of the room. Ikat draperies, ﬂax-hue Roman shades, and
Work zone A Carrara marble island takes center stage in a kitchen that accommodates both cooking and gathering. Paneled refrigerator and freezer drawers flank a Wolf range. Counterops are soapstone; floors are French limestone. Family Homeowner Jennifer Higgins gathers her boys (from left), David, Cooper, Charlie, and Jack, at the kitchen table. Details Roman shades layer in texture and a hint of soft yellow. Gray-painted cabinetry conceals the microwave. Like the countertops, the range backsplash is soapstone— impervious to stains and to heat.
tufted blue upholstery further soften the space—and absorb sound—while they work with gray-painted cabinetry to establish a neutral palette enlivened by hits of easy-to-live-with color. “You see so many white kitchens,” Jennifer says. “I wanted something a little different but still traditional.” As a mom and frequent entertainer, she also demanded plenty of function. “We all know everyone congregates in the kitchen,” she
says. “In addition to a great cooking zone, I wanted several gathering areas within the bigger space.” Dixon delivered, incorporating bar-stool seating on one side of the island, a sitting area next to patio doors, and a plush banquette in a bay window nook. Even furry family members have their spot. Snider built a pet station into one end of the waterfall island so Winston and Annie can enjoy a bite. “No more knocking over the dog bowls,” Jennifer says.
MY FAVORITE THING IS THE BANQUETTE—OR ‘THE BOOTH,’ AS MY YOUNGEST SON CALLS IT. EVERYONE LOVES IT SO MUCH THAT WE HARDLY EVEN USE OUR DINING ROOM.” —homeowner Jennifer Higgins
For even more clutter control, Dixon and Snider concealed the butler’s pantry behind a door that looks like part of the cabinetry. “I love that secret door,” Jennifer says. “I can leave out the toaster, the coffeepot, paperwork. I close the door and no one sees it. It’s just one of the many things that makes this kitchen great.” Architect: D. Stanley Dixon Interior designer: Clay Snider For more information, see sources on page 117
50 TH December/January 2018
Banquette Wipe-clean cushions make bench seating family-friendly, while
tufting brings a classic look. Plenty of fabric, including flowing draperies— in a fashionable flame-stitch ikat pattern from Schumacher—erased Jennifer’s fears that the tiled space would be an echo chamber. Pet station Annie and Winston belly up to the built-in pet bar on one end of the island. The Carrara marble is mitered for an extra-thick look. Butler’s pantry To the left of the range, Jennifer’s “secret door” opens to reveal a secondary prep zone and storage spot.

Clearly GRAY AREAS NEVER SILENCE THIS FAMILY’S STYLE— EVERYTHING SINGS IN BEAUTIFUL BLACK AND WHITE 62 TH December/January 2018
itting the high note comes naturally to the Fierz family. Justin, Lauren, and their three daughters are all musicians with an ear for beautiful melodies—and a predilection against distracting background noise. So it’s no surprise that the interiors of their Chicago home are as crisp and clean—as black and white—as a fresh sheet of music. Life pops against this quiet backdrop, especially during the holidays, when rooms burst with sparkling decorations, joyful music, and youthful holiday cheer. “They wanted a house that was interesting and detailed with architecture,” designer Soledad Zitzewitz says. “The black-andwhite scheme delicately blends creativity and order, which are a nod to both Justin’s and Lauren’s personalities.” Black and white present a striking and sophisticated design statement throughout the house, not only meshing with the family’s holiday trimmings but also their everyday life. Here, music takes center stage—collectively, the Fierz ﬁve play the piano, drums, guitar, viola, trumpet, and ukulele. Katarina is enrolled in voice lessons, too. Setting the stage for all this creative expression, Zitzewitz called on some artistry of her own, designing spaces with balance, impact, and moments of visual silence that politely take a back seat
when appropriate. Case in point: the piano. Situated in a corner off the formal living room, the heirloom baby grand on which Lauren and her two sisters took lessons as children bears a functional purpose and also plays to Lauren’s sentimentality. Simple drapery panels of ivory cotton on the surrounding windows ensure that nothing distracts from the songs that are played by Lauren or her daughters, who have carried the piano ritual to a new generation. Along with music, other bits of tradition pull on the Fierz family heartstrings. Also in the living room sits a pair of matching tables handed down to Lauren from her grandmother. The leggy beauties mingle effortlessly with new pieces, including sofas that are upholstered in ivory velvet and chairs with whimsical silhouettes that radiate a golden ﬁnish. Family room At Christmas, black-and-white accents enhance the neutral theme.
Striped ribbon winds around the tree, and dots and checks wrap packages. Music nook With four pianists in the house, the baby grand is a popular spot for
Justin and Lauren Fierz and their three daughters, Natalia, Melania, and Katarina. Preceding pages The foyer, decked in black-and-white tile and leaded-glass windows, establishes the holiday season with a soaring tree, greenery woven through the stair railing, and a pair of wreaths, all from Frontgate.

Twin brass sconces light the fireplace mantel, dressed for the holiday season with festive garland.

Designer Soledad Zitzewitz stretched Calacatta marble beyond its typical use as a counter surface, applying the white-and-gray stone to the walls as a backsplash and using it around the archway and windows. â€œIt links the cooking area and sink area together,â€? Zitzewitz says. Ebony floors, stools covered in black leather with nailhead trim, and a Lacanche range and hood in black metal supply sharp contrast to the otherwise light kitchen. Topiaries scent the sink area with whiffs of rosemary. Glass globe pendants over the island are by The Urban Electric Co.

The open dining room deﬁes tradition, or at least gives it—and traditional expectations—a new spin. The room’s stately table, positioned on an arresting diamond-pattern tile “rug” inset in the wood ﬂooring, adds another chapter to the home’s heirloom story. When the Fierz family decided to build a new house where another house had stood, the construction process required tree removal, so Justin and Lauren had the logs milled and made into a table that Zitzewitz designed. “We wanted something to commemorate this place,” Lauren says. “The family who lived on this lot before us also had three girls. So a table—a place where we gather as a family every night— seemed appropriate. It’s special and a reminder of the attention that we put into the details to make this house for us, our tastes, and our traditions.” In accordance with Fierz family tradition, they intentionally did not include a breakfast nook in the kitchen that ﬂows easily off the formal dining space. Instead, on occasions when the big dining table isn’t called into service, the Fierzes embrace the dine-atthe-kitchen-island movement that so many families have adopted for everyday meals. The bar stools that snuggle up to the marble-top island make another of Lauren’s wishes come true: to interact with her

daughters as she cooks—just as she did with her Italian grandmother throughout her own childhood. “I want my daughters to develop memories that parallel what I had,” she says. Like the kitchen, the sunroom was devised to be a space for family interaction. Without a television or other electronic distractions, it’s a place for games and conversation—warmed by the natural light that spills through French doors and an arched window. It’s also the perfect spot for a touch of holiday cheer, including a tree on one side of the gray stone ﬁreplace. “I love to decorate for Christmas,” Lauren says. “But I appreciate that this house doesn’t beg for anything over the top. Our family can express our creativity but keep it simple. To me, this time of year is about being cozy together, with a sense of calm and stillness.” Interior designer: Soledad Zitzewitz
For more information, see sources on page 117 Dining room To boost Christmas cheer during family meals, evergreen boughs
are tied to the horizontal light fixture. Black-and-white bows affixed to Oly’s “Sussex” chairs with seats made of oversize woven leather straps support the home’s graphic color story. Sunroom Slipcovered sofas offer a comfy spot for games, music, and talks—a place for family time. “This room has the most meaning because of what it represents,” Lauren says. Family office A custom wallcovering from Spoonflower in oversize plaid sets a creative mood. Chairs covered in faux fur inject the laboratory of imagination with texture and sass.
Bunk room This kid-friendly space buzzes with contemporary vibes from geometric-pattern carpet, a knit pouf, and a wiry chandelier by Jonathan Browning for RH Modern.

HOLIDAY DECOR HAPPILY PLAYS THE BLUES IN AN AIRY ATLANTA HOME THAT BENDS TRADITION IN LIGHT, BRIGHT STYLE
December/January 2018 TH
hristmas Eve is here, and the scent of gently bubbling beef bourguignon greets Lisa Jackson, her husband, Rick, and their three children as they bustle through the door, just home from church. Dinner, as always, will be served on Chickadee & Holly ﬁne bone china that once belonged to Lisa’s grandmother; it will be eaten with sterling silver ﬂatware that graced that same grandmother’s dining table decades ago. The meal has been planned for more than a month and will be shared, as always, by 15 members of Rick’s family. “We do the same things every year,” Lisa says with a laugh. “We love our traditions.” Among her favorites? Her annual preThanksgiving holiday kickoff trip to New York—or sometimes,
Chicago—with teenage daughters Sara Elizabeth and Parker “to shop and get in the spirit,” Lisa says. So spirited are the Jacksons that friends joke they know the holidays have arrived once armloads of greenery and twinkling lights festoon the symmetrically dormered windows, 11-foot French doors, and urn-capped gateposts of the family’s Atlanta home—an eclectic mix of French and Belgian architecture designed by architect Stan Dixon. “This house is very special to me,” Dixon says. “It draws on the edited approach to traditional architecture that I practice and love. Also, it was newly constructed within a 1920s revival neighborhood, and I’m proud to say it ﬁts seamlessly with the historic homes that surround it.”
Family Rick, Sara Elizabeth, Richard, Lisa, and Parker Jackson hang the last of their blue and silver (plastic!) ornaments on the Christmas tree decorating their veranda. Living room Twin bergères are upholstered in Brunschwig & Fils “Teal Green” silk taffeta. “It’s a bit fragile, but it’s so gorgeous and was definitely worth using,” designer Will Huff says. The Magni “Jewel” coffee table, he says, “is truly the jewel in the room.” Custom tuxedo sofas add panache. Preceding pages Sofa, chairs, and ottomans by
Janus et Cie are covered in the company’s “Spinnaker” fabric. An arched, mirrored wall—and the massive fireplace it reflects—elevates the Jacksons’ outdoor gathering experience, making the veranda as inviting for cocktails and conversation as the house itself. December/January 2018 TH
WE WANTED PEOPLE TO FEEL COMFORTABLE IN THEIR SEATS, NO MATTER WHERE THOSE SEATS ARE.” —designer Will Huff
Lisa was thrilled when she and Rick were able to buy the house ﬁve years ago. “I love everything about it,” she says. “It’s so light, bright, and airy. It’s wonderful for gathering people together.” Especially during the Christmas season. First, there’s the holiday party hosted by the Jacksons each year for more than 150 donors and board members of Annandale Village, a local nonproﬁt dear to Lisa’s heart. Christmas Eve dinner comes next, quickly followed by Christmas Day celebrations—which never, ever vary. “We open presents in the library in the morning and have my family for dinner in the evening,” she says. “The menu is always the same— beef tenderloin, mashed potatoes, a big green salad, creamed spinach with artichokes, and peppermint ice cream with chocolate sauce—and we often have as many as 15 people spending the night.”
Exuberant but exhausted, Lisa vows each year to end her celebrations there—but never does. “We always end up having friends from Chicago and Chattanooga visit for New Year’s Eve,” she says. “We love to cook, and we love to entertain. We feel so fortunate to live in a house that makes that possible.” Indeed, the welcoming nature of the home extends to its decor. Awash in a relaxing mix of cool whites and grays augmented by all manner of blues—from indigo and sky to navy and turquoise— rooms bear the hallmark of Lisa’s favorite color, and the approach of designers Will Huff and Heather Dewberry of Huff-Dewberry. “I watch what my clients wear and design my houses to match what they feel good in,” Huff says. “Lisa is often dressed in blue. I wanted her to feel as comfortable in her house as she does in her clothes.”
Dining room Metallic grass cloth—Donghia’s “Hemp II” in silver—climbs dining room walls; a New Classics custom walnut pedestal table with perimeter leaves expands to seat 12. “A square room calls for a round dining table,” Huff says. Stockings Ornamented with beading and crystals, Kim Seybert for Neiman Marcus stockings await Christmas morning surprises. Console Lamps encrusted with metallic stones illuminate a concrete console table by Bradley USA. Lisa’s ever-growing collection of crystal Christmas trees by Simon Pearce through Erika Reade amplifies the sparkle.

THERE IS GREAT ELEGANCE IN WHAT STAN DIXON CREATED. IT WAS EASY FOR US TO MAKE AN ALREADY BEAUTIFUL HOUSE AMAZING.” —designer Will Huff
Equally comfortable are the choices Huff made for fabrics and furnishings—an inspired blend of clean-lined, contemporary pieces that team easily with treasured antiques and heirlooms, such as a pair of antique gilt bergères Lisa inherited from her grandparents. “What I love most about this house is it’s a perfect balance between traditional Southern style and punched-up contemporary ﬂair,” Huff says. To wit: A painted gray ﬁnish tames the formality of reproduction Louis XVI dining chairs; living room sofas are clad in velvet—but it’s “100-percent synthetic, durable, and very familyfriendly,” Huff notes. Kitchen bar stools wear easy-wipe vinyl; a sisal rug “tones things down so you don’t feel afraid to enter the dining room,” he adds. “Everything in this house is lush and beautiful, yet also practical and functional.”
Nowhere is that more true than on the veranda, where a Christmas tree decorated to create an ombré effect beckons the Jacksons. “In the South, it’s entirely possible to spend Christmas outdoors,” Huff says. “All these ornaments are plastic, so if it rains or gets windy, no harm done.” Huff’s pragmatic approach is also open-minded. “I love Christmas decorating that has a pulled-together, elegant feel. Although traditional reds and greens certainly have a place, there are so many more options for holiday decorations. It’s why we ﬁlled the Jacksons’ house with blues and popped them up with chartreuse.” Lisa considers his viewpoint a gift. “Blue is bright and happy,” she says, “just like Christmas.”

way that would make them welcoming—for everyday living and for big gatherings of friends and family, particularly during the holiday season. “At Christmas, it feels comforting to me to be in our house planning meals, setting the table, and cooking for days,” Tobi says. “When I was a child, my mom put so much time into making things special and making people feel loved. She passed that down to me, and I’m passing that down to Ellison.” Just as Tobi served as her mom’s “sous chef” when she was a girl, Ellison is now mom’s top assistant in the kitchen. “She loves to cook,” Tobi says. A cake recipe from Carter’s stepmother ranks as Ellison’s favorite. “She likes to quote Julia Child: ‘A party without cake is just a meeting,’ ” Tobi says with a laugh. Designer and daughter also tap into other family treasures. “I get out the old recipe boxes with recipes from Carter’s mom and grandmothers,” Tobi says. “Last year, I made their old-fashioned boiled custard. That was really special.” Tobi has made it her mission to draw out cherished memories of Christmas from her husband, whose mother died when he was 17. “That had made the holidays hard for him,” Tobi says. “I wanted the season to feel special again.” To that end, she re-created stockings from his boyhood, hanging them over their mantel, and

she whips up sausage pinwheels like his mom used to make on Christmas morning. Guests also share in the heartfelt spirit, which is readily apparent at the dining table. “I entertain the traditional Southern way with china and linens,” Tobi says. “I layer pieces, like my traditional Christmas china with pink-and-white salad plates that I got from a friend for my 40th birthday. It’s about being creative. There are chinoiserie placemats and Kate Spade napkins—a mix of old and new, inexpensive and antique.” Always included is the sterling silver ﬂatware that tells another family story. “My grandmother started my collection when I was a teen,” Tobi says. “By the time I got married, I had the whole set. I’m so glad now that I have it. Every time I get out these things it warms my heart. For me, sharing all of this is sharing the love with other people.”

Kitchen and breakfast nook “There are so many white kitchens in the world. I went with a fresh take that’s still serene,” Tobi says. She chose the calming C2 Paint color “Slinky” for the cabinetry in her kitchen and breakfast area. The floor is Daltile glass tile, and countertops are Dekton by Cosentino, a surface more durable than the marble that was used on the backsplash. A Thermador range handles all of her holiday meal-making.
Ellison’s room “Ellison had a big say in how her room was decorated,” Tobi says. “She wanted cobalt blue with some turquoise elements, with white on the walls and the bed. She leans toward a tailored look.” The skinny, branchy, retro tree has been around for years. It used to have monkey ornaments, which Tobi has tucked away. Now it’s outfitted in cobalt and turquoise balls for a more grown-up look.
THIS ALABAMA HOME USHERS IN CHRISTMAS WITH A SOFT, REFINED SOUTHERN ACCENT December/January 2018 TH
ntiques rub elbows with contemporary art. Magnolia leaves star in holiday garlands. Neighbors all along the gently looping street share friendly Christmas greetings and mugs of steaming hot chocolate as they usher in the season with their annual “Santa on the Circle” celebration. Southern comfort lives here—in the Birmingham, Alabama, home of attorney Rita Dixon and her 15-year-old twins, James and David—during the holidays and every day. To create this special vibe, Rita had some help from interior designer Melanie Pounds, who paired rich, warm tones of the past with lighter top notes of modernity to shape a home with reﬁned Southern style . “I’ve always loved the old Tudor homes of Birmingham, and I wanted to keep this new house, which we built on the footprint of an earlier one, true to the historic character of the city,” Rita says. As new construction, the Tudor-style architecture presented an opportunity to embrace the past with more than antiques: Glorious salvaged woods—some with interesting histories—compose its walls, ceilings, and ﬂoors. The old Atlantic cedar has the most distinctive past. Showcased on the living room’s dropped ceiling in front of the bay window and on the dining room’s built-
92 TH December/January 2018
in shelving, it came from the forests in which the Campbell Soup Company grew the mushrooms used in its recipes. So naturally, “we call it mushroom wood,” Rita says. The ﬂoor plan also nods to the past, particularly the Southern heritage Rita grew up with in Florida. “I wanted a formal living room, a separate formal dining room, and a more informal den,” she says. “Although the rooms aren’t open, they ﬂow.” The separate spaces multiply the opportunities for seasonal decorating. A towering ﬁr tree bursting with Rita’s favorite crystal and glass ornaments stretches to the ceiling in the living room, positioned so perfectly in the bay between a pair of wing chairs that it might have been sketched into the ﬂoor plan. Although new, the German leaded glass in the bay window connotes a storied past. Fireplace The painting above the antique French limestone mantel in the den is by local artist Michael Marlowe, a good friend of homeowner Rita Dixon. Dining room Salvaged Atlantic cedar on shelving creates a warm backdrop for Rita’s collection of Herend “Rothschild Bird” china. Preceding pages Sporting a crisp magnolia wreath that mimics the geometry of a small iron-and-glass window, the front door was custom-made from old oak by a local artisan. The living room’s inviting bay window makes the ideal spot for a Christmas tree outfitted with warm-hued ornaments that complement the nook’s cedar ceiling. A pair of antique wing chairs maintain their history wearing a Nancy Corzine fabric. Antique oak floors are beautifully imperfect.
WE WANTED A WARM, CUDDLY PALETTE WITH OCHERS AND CHOCOLATE BROWNS.” —designer Melanie Pounds 94 TH December/January 2018
The original tapestry on the wooden antique chair launched the denâ€™s design. Rita and her mother, antiques dealer Mary Chavers, scored the antique sofa, end tables, and floor-to-ceiling mirror on a trip to New Orleans.
In the dining room, magnolia-leaf garlands spill down elegant ﬂuted doorway pilasters, and an arrangement of amaryllis, magnolia, pine, and juniper in an antique bronze vessel continues the holiday mood. The subdued colors serve as a soft complement to the antique French table. “My mother is an antiques dealer,” Rita says, explaining her love—and her home’s abundance—of antique furnishings. Many of the pieces in her predominantly French collection were purchased on shopping trips with her mom or Pounds to New Orleans. “We didn’t ﬁnd everything at once,” Pounds says. “In each room, we waited to ﬁnd the truly special piece.” In the dining room, that signature piece is a gilded French mirror with highlights of verde green. For a striking counterpoint, Pounds custom-designed the dining room’s wall of open shelving. Built from the old “mushroom” wood, it makes a compelling background for Rita’s collection of china. The theme of old meets new continues in the den, where the Dixon family loves to gather. “The boys and I listen to Christmas music while we decorate the tree in the den,” Rita says. “We ﬁll this tree with ornaments from our travels, the boys’ handmade or-
naments, and ornaments from our favorite college teams—one son is an Auburn fan and one roots for Alabama. We’re a house divided,” Rita says with a laugh. Equal parts rustic and reﬁned, the den is warmed by an all-wood coffered ceiling of salvaged pine. Though more rugged than the Atlantic cedar of the formal rooms, the old pine is no less beautiful. To blend old with new, historical and contemporary—and to keep the mood of the room light for this young family—Pounds designed a wall of white-painted shelving as a clean contrast. Handily, it camouﬂages the TV behind sliding glass doors. At Christmas, the room’s antique French limestone mantel nods to the South with a magnolia-leaf garland. It’s ﬁtting ﬂair for this house, ﬁlled with a balanced mix of reﬁnement and fun for a family that savors plates of pastries on Christmas morning before tearing into all those prettily wrapped packages. And maybe topping it off with a bite from the big gingerbread house they decorated using the boys’ favorite candies. “Life,” Rita will tell you, “is sweet here.”

Master bedroom Another painting by Michael Marlowe hangs above the bed in Rita’s room. A simple swag of lemon leaf celebrates the season without disrupting the room’s serenity. Family Rita and her 15-year-old twins, James and David, enjoy Christmas and every other day with their golden retrievers, Dixie and Ally. Master bath The panels of a tub screen reach their potential at Christmas, bedecked with eucalyptus wreaths. Boys’ room Beds that designer
Melanie Pounds upholstered in linen continue the home’s antique French style. Here, the holidays are observed with a medley of pinecones dangling from ribbons at the window, along with magnolia leaves on the chandelier. A slipcovered chair from Verellen is a comfy spot for reading or surfing the Web.

I Am Traditional
Founder of Rodin Olio Lusso
She lives in a wonderland “My home
is full of objects I love—a mélange of everything. It’s kind of like falling down the rabbit hole. It reﬂects all the things I’ve collected over the past 55 years—some from when I was a teenager and a lot of things from the home where I grew up. My mother was an interior designer and owned an antiques shop. I love collecting and never stop.” She’s the epitome of innate style
What, to her, deﬁnes grace and style? “I think for me it’s about being at ease with who you are, feeling comfortable and conﬁdent with yourself.” Collecting is in her blood “I collect anything from seashells to antique jewelry and paintings. For the past two years, I’ve collected plants. I have more than 100, and I tend my indoor garden a few hours a week.” Viva l’Italia “If I could go back to one period in my life, it would be my years spent living in Italy in my late teens. It was a time of learning another language and culture that has shaped my life since.” I Am Traditional “I like classics as much as quirky, I couldn’t possibly part with my Levi’s 501s that I got 25 years ago, and I still have my ﬁrst charm bracelet.”
MY BEAUTY ICONS ARE MY MOTHER, GRANDMOTHER, AND AUNT. ALL WERE STYLISH AND ORIGINAL WOMEN.” 124 TH December/January 2018
