Style: Cool Traditional with Devin Kirk

1. “For a relaxed modern look, lean artwork instead of hanging it—fewer holes in the wall, and it’s easier to switch things up from season to season. Wreaths look effortless and actually are!”

2. “Use only fresh wreaths, garlands, greens, and trees. They look and smell better than the fake stuff. Boxwood, magnolia, and berries can easily get you through the whole season.”

3. “Vintage touches are a must—whether they’re family heirlooms or things you picked up at a flea market. My vintage Shiny Brite ornaments can get kind of lost on a tree, so I like to display them on their own for more impact.”

4. “I don’t stray too far from neutrals in my place, but at holiday time I amp up the metallics. I added brass pieces to the mantel, which makes it festive but still understated.“

5. “I like the surprise of an oversize brown paper chain, a spin on what children make. I genuinely believe if you have fun decorating for Christmas, it will turn out better. Invite friends and make it a party!”
