Red, White & Blue Christmas

I love a trio of red, white and blue. For me, it has such timeless appeal, and can easily take on a traditional and whimsical look, especially during the holidays. Mary McDonald always works magic with these colors.

A graphic red and white painting by Alexander Liberman marries with blue and white porcelain in a dining room designed by Alex Papachristidis. The Brunschwig & Fils tapestry 'tablecloth' unifies the rich colors of the room.

One of my all time favorite rooms is that of Tulsa jewelry designer Angie Bovaird. The red and blue Cloisonné vases overflowing with greenery and miniature potted cypress trees look so festive against the red and white walls.

An antique Chinese panel in red and gold sparkles in the dinning room. Hand carved wooden topiaries take on the shape of Christmas trees.
