Happy Holidays

Christmas is just days away. And soon, 2015 will be over. We're keeping it festive at Tone on Tone! Enjoy this holiday vignette with gatherings from nature.

Wishing you much joy now, and in the year to come. 
Merry, Merry!!
Loi
Teaming up with Ellen Seagraves, my dear friend and longtime florist, we draped a fresh cedar garland accented with silver-painted eucalyptus sprigs around a zinc horse head suspended over a Swedish chest. A few more sprigs of eucalyptus add just the right amount of sparkle to a cluster of giant sugar pinecones tucked with brunia berries and moss. Continuing the woodland theme, shed antlers fill an iron urn with rustic flair.

A very warm thank you to the hugely talented Ellen.

  1. I like the horse's head, (for my stables), although in Italy it might not go down so well. But seriously, the muted colours are a very pleasant change.

  3. Hello Loi, Urns are always classic, and the wild (shed) antlers and sugar pine cones form a pleasing, informal contrast.

    A very Happy Holidays to you and Tom.

  9. Yes dear Loi - meeting up with you at your beautiful shop was a definite hilight of 2015 for me - and it made me want to throw everything away and start over around the cottage, LOL! You have such beautiful things for sale and displayed there. However, that's not possible so I'm just loving every post you write and all the beauty you share with us from your lovely homes and the shop - you are the best!

    May your holidays be full of wondrous moments - hope we can catch up again in the coming year.
    Best wishes always - Mary & Bob xx

  12. Beautiful! We opted for cedar wreaths this year and they are a lovely departure from the pine we usually do. Your decorations are stunning, Loi. Happy Holidays and all the best in 2016.

  21. Un Joyeux Noël to you and your Tom,
    It looks divine here, your florists did an amazingly beautiful job, what I love best is her beauty that inspired your pieces were stately and not over the top, yet all the beauty it needed to greet the season of bells ringing in the holidays and new year.

    Thank you for you support this last year and years past, I am looking forward to what 2016 bring for you here.

    See you soon dear,

    Xx

  28. So beautiful, as always! Your style is just stunning. I am so inspired by your posts and style, here and on IG. I just want to say thank you for a year of inspiration. I can't wait to see what beauty you share in 2016! (and hopefully, you will eventually find a tabletop urn from France for me:))

    Hope your Christmas was very merry!
