Pine bough garlands are worked up for Christmas mantels with dried berries, pearl-and-amethyst batons, mercury-glass ornaments and satin bows by British designer William Yeoward. Ribbons and decor were purchased at the English passementerie house VV Rouleaux, which has wonderful supplies and examples of simple Christmas bows.
Floral guru Zezé draped the living room mantel of New York City designer Charlotte Moss with beige velvet ribbon caught up with pine cones and boughs plus tree ornaments in two colors and various sizes.
In the Moss dining room, pine boughs and cones, orange ribbons and kumquats on the vine echo the designer’s sunny citrus-hued tablescape.
Pine boughs, sprayed white, are simply arrayed on the mantel and mixed with fresh white flowers in glass and silver vases. Silver candlesticks also compliment the oval mirror.
Hand-knit stockings hang from a festive sign posted on a old pine Texas ranch mantel decorated on top with vintage books and country accessories.
