Decorating for Christmas In Old Town Alexandria comes alive this month in a new Youtube video. I discovered the Homeworthy channel a year or so ago and about once a week I check in to see some of the latest, most imaginative interior designs from around the country.
One of my favorite episodes from last year was a house on North Washington St. (between Queen and Princess). It was fully decorated for Christmas with wreaths, garlands and Christmas trees in every room. Swoon . . .
Imagine my delight when a new Homeworthy episode once again focused on North Washington but with a behind the scenes look. Home owner Brian Braton starts the day after Thanksgiving working nonstop, and almost single handedly, completes this huge project in about three days. I was exhausted just watching!
I particularly like his wreaths which are bursting with dried fruit and flowers. He offers some great tips on using boxwood garlands and his touches of whimsey are charming. Brian even delivers a short soliloquy on paint colors and why he does all his own painting!
It’s great fun and a feast for the eyes.
Enjoy . . .
