Suzanne starts planning her seasonal decor in November, and in early December she sets aside two days to complete the transformation of the Regency-style home. Because she has numerous collections from which to choose, Suzanne has a different focus each year. “I start with a concept, then pick and choose from my collections—and edit,” she says, noting that there are some constants throughout. The results are festive and elegant—a true reflection of Suzanne’s personal style.
“I have a beautiful collection of ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ ornaments from Christopher Radko," said Suzanne. "I always put them on the main tree in the family room. And I like to use things from my Christmas collection for Ballard Designs. It was inspired by antique ornaments I’ve collected in muted colors, and the tree in the living room is done in those ornaments, paired with all-silver varieties. The fireplace mantel incorporates them, too; the muted colors are gorgeous there.”
Complementing the designer’s special collections throughout the house are elements in traditional red and green hues, as well as timeless Frasier fir and juniper berries.
