Mary Carol Garrity's Holiday Open House
The line of people stretched down the block, but it was well worth the wait. For a quick introduction of Mary Carol Garrity (my design muse), click here.
Her house was built in 1885. The entrance featured a dramatic staircase, with lots of molding and detail.
She certainly has a talent when it comes to staging artwork. Beautiful paintings and drawings filled the walls, perfectly staggered.
Her dining room was a gorgeous shade of midnight blue, which made the white crown molding and wainscoting pop.
Although this was a holiday open house, it didn't SCREAM Christmas, which was nice. Garrity threw in some natural greenery wreaths and a modest tree to complete the festive look.
Isn't the basket of wine bottles a fresh take on a formal display.
Next up, her bright and cheery family room-
This is the perfect nook. Love the pillows, the windows, the wreaths...
Love the grass cloth covered walls and warm trim of the den-
The screened patio was extra sweet;)
