Deck The Halls

Just when you may have been thinking that to "deck the halls" always looks, well, the same, we present our latest completed project on Greenbrier. This mid-century modern inspired home is a refreshing reminder that holiday loveliness can come in all shapes and styles, and that just a few thoughtfully placed collections can quietly and magically say Merry Christmas when smartly displayed. Of course, it also helps to have a recently completed Coats Home as a backdrop.

A simple collection of nutcrackers stands at attention in this bright office space off the kitchen. We're floored with a how chic this Walker Zanger wood tile backsplash makes even the most ordinary of Christmas tea towels pop. And yes, this backsplash is actual wood tiles, they warm up a kitchen + add texture, we're big fans.


The circular staircase as you enter this home is both the show stopping centerpiece and at the same time an ode to the "less is more" mantra. Simple round iron balusters disappear into perfectly square wooden treads and risers. The simple white garland is just the right touch. 

An entryway fit for the man himself.


Singular stately reindeer guard the stunning dining room floating cabinets. The way these cabinets levitate is so striking. 


Most wet bars feel festive no matter the season. This monochromatic white one is so clean and such a nice antidote to some of the darker bars we're seeing so much of lately. The combination of glass and wood shelves helps to weave the bar into the rest of the nearby kitchen. 


The homeowner painstakingly collected and stored many of her own light fixtures for this project, she clearly has an eye. Her expertly curated Christmas decor is a testament to her keen sense of design.

Enjoy our latest work and may this home inspire you this holiday season. Merry Christmas from all of our families to yours.

Inspired and in love with our job,

Coats Homes
