There’s a certain romance to coming down the stairs on Christmas morn. Laced with smilax vine, the staircase makes an eye-catching first stop to see what Santa has brought. “Smilax holds up only for about a week,” says Dave, “but we love the look, and it’s easy to replace.” A quick step outside reveals a plentiful supply.
Stockings, rightfully guarded by nutcrackers, find a not-so-traditional home here on the side of the staircase. We think this is a nice way to spread holiday joy to all rooms of the house while keeping clutter at bay.
