This past month, we had the pleasure of bringing along The Las Vegas Review Journal to three of our clients' homes for the holidays. Privately interviewed & detailed by our team, we spoke about our design process and how every joyful creation is freshly curated to align with our clients' visions. Come along as we bring the spirit of Christmas to Anthem Country Club, Ascaya, and Sun City Anthem.
Our fresh take on the Traditional Christmas decor included green velvet presents, red beaded accents, and ice skates on the tree! These clients gave us full reign for this design and they came home to a splendid array of holiday cheer and a 12-foot Christmas tree to love. We wanted to bring our clients' cozy cabin to their Vegas residence & we think we definitely brought warm elements for them to enjoy by the fire.
The RJ states, "[Laura Sullivan] met the homeowners, Kristi and Jeff Savacool, when they relocated from Chicago in 2017 and renovated their 4,000-square-foot home. She started doing the couple’s Christmas décor three years ago.
'We love having a comfortable home where people want to sit down and cuddle up,' Kristi Savacool said. '(Sullivan) has an innate ability to match the interior design with your personality and how you like to live. Everything I’ve seen her do is fabulous. I recommend her to lots of people.'"
"[The tree is] lit with white lights, it features shiny red mesh ribbon, poinsettias, oversized red ornaments, red berry picks and pairs of faux-fur trimmed plaid ice skates. A plaid tree skirt and top hat tree topper complete the overall theme."
This design is definitely cabin-cozy ready!
Over in Ascaya, our clients received a sparkling winter wonderland with silver accents to drape their luxurious furniture. With life-size Santas and a soaring 15-foot Christmas tree adorned with miniature gold instruments and angels, it's no wonder this design has become one of our favorites!
The RJ states, "Sullivan’s décor is simple yet elegant, complementing the home’s contemporary interior design and palette of gray with pops of red. She placed holiday-focused pieces strategically throughout the room, adding a subtle ambiance."
"Next to the fireplace, a 4-foot vintage-styled Santa dressed in an ivory fur-trimmed hooded sweater stands holding a package and a Christmas tree. Flanked by a trio of tall gold cone trees, the Santa vignette warms the space using neutral tones and integrating different textures. Lighted birch branches set against the wall add to the visual effect. Glittery silver-wrapped packages with ribbon and garlands of greenery, ribbon and ornaments add a festive touch to the tabletops and stone fireplace hearth. The tabletop décor in the formal dining room plays off the Vahallan hand-painted wallpaper and custom Italian table with crystal legs lined with silk-backed chairs."
What's not to love when you have 6,000 square feet of luxury living to decorate for the holidays!
In Sun City Anthem, our clients are international travelers who wanted this Christmas to be personal and elegant. We adorned not only their tree with ornaments from around the world, but we decorated their entire main living space with special memorabilia from their travels together. We used an orange and silver color palette to spruce things up & we're so happy with how everything turned out!
The RJ states, "Sullivan chose three silver mini trees to line the main room’s fireplace hearth, displaying the couple’s 50 ornaments collected over 50 years of marriage. 'It’s all the places we’ve been,' Kathi Sarkin [the homeowner] said. 'We’ve spent a lot of holidays together in many places...We wanted our home to be special for guests and special for us...I knew Laura could make that happen. She’s utterly brilliant.'"
"On the other side of the room, Sullivan incorporated burnt orange and gold tones into the central flocked, 7½-foot Christmas tree, complementing the warm tones of the couple’s interior and extensive art collection. Glittery gold cursive Merry Christmas and Joy ornaments play off the various-sized warm-toned ornaments. In the tree’s center, two beagle ornaments represent their dogs: Sadie and Cash."
We loved bringing international traditions and pieces into this holiday design!
