Is Your Home Ready for the Holidays?

Have you noticed some retailers already have holiday decorations for sale? It is mid September! To be honest, it freaks me out. I am still wearing open toed shoes.

While you can postpone buying holiday decor for a few months – or even after the holiday for the following year if you want to save – what may surprise you is this is an excellent time to get your home ready for the holidays. I don’t mean with yule tide decor either. Is your home ready for those parties and guests you have planned? Wouldn’t it be great this holiday season to be proud of the way your home looks when family and friends visit for gatherings?

To me, there is nothing more enjoyable than a gathering at home. The candlelight, the soft music, the cozy furnishings and fabrics, the ambient lighting, the smell of delicious food, and the laughter of family and friends.

We happily work with clients this time of year with an event approaching, specifying home furnishings that are in stock or available via quick-ship programs from our manufacturers. In addition, our local artisans and workrooms work hard to ensure timeframes met in time for your big day. The Angela Todd Designs team schedules a full installation day for our clients:

  • arranging furnishings
  • hanging artwork
  • positioning portable lighting
  • placing finishing touches

Upon request we will even accessorize the finished space – sprinkling in holiday decor and cheer – after the holidays we will return to re-accessorize your finished rooms appropriate for the rest of the year.

This holiday consider gifting yourself. You will enjoy your interior design well after the holiday rush is over. You deserve a space that relaxes and invigorates you, and we are here to help.
