Christmas at Designer's Homes Across America by Katharine Kaye McMillan & Patricia Hart McMillan Schiffer Publishing Ltd.

This is a gorgeous coffee-table book to inspire your Christmas decorations at this holy time of year.  It's full of beautiful photos with interesting descriptions as well as chapters on famous designers.  All of the designers have very different ideas about how to embellish their homes for Christmas.

The designers include Christopher Radko with his love of vintage ornaments, such as toy soldiers from The Nutcracker, and nostalgic Christmas trees, Shayla Coplas, who also likes a traditional Christmas.  She prefers a more glamorous style, however, with glittering reindeers, and gold and Tiffany blue decorations on the tree.  Another designer is Mary Helen McCoy. Her house is filled with fine French antiques and she likes gilded birds and peacocks.

Many of the designers fill their houses with roses because they are a symbol of Jesus.  I didn't know that, and I like that idea, as well as many of the others.

I received this book from Schiffer Publishing via Net Galley in return for an honest review.
