Hello Friends I am sharing my decor work in this Lookbook on holiday decorating. It is my hope that you will find something to inspire you or find an idea to use or perhaps only digital joy. As a born romantic, daydreamer, creative and visual learner, photography gives me sweet pleasure. A great place for emotional escape during this horrific year in American history. My husband suggested this week that I put together a small group of my holiday decor photos in one place, so I took his suggestion. The master of lookbooks is Coty Farquhar of Australia with her Styling Magazines. Google her work to see why I call her a master. I also discovered the Lookbooks of an English source called Chic & Country. I highly recommend their online magazines. I have published many Lookbooks, particularly on Paris and my flower gardens, but mine are not magazines as such in content. Christmas is almost here so I better hurry along. Here in my work, you will find things that I enjoy decorating with such as white coral, angels, china of all kinds, oyster and abalone shell wreaths and trees, tabernacles, crystal garland, mercury glass and silver reindeer. Perhaps a photo or two of my floral work and a few of Paris. Around the holidays, I use color, in particular magenta and turquoise. White has become my favorite hue. The Swedish decor of my home is white, silver and gold metallics with some blue/grays. My goal is to get to nearly an all white interior. I like crazy wild color in my flower beds but not in my house. Outside of the holidays, during the rest of the year, I don’t use vibrant color inside. The angel photo on the cover was taken in Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris. I am very anxious to go back to see if she survived the devastating fire. Joy to you all, Colleen Stratton Martin, Founder Swede Collection, LLC and Tole Garden
