Mexican-Inspired Christmas

A colorless living area is transformed for a Mexican Christmas get-together.

Lighting Up The Fireplace

The existing draperies are replaced with the red fabric used throughout the space, and a unique overlay is added for a touch of modern glimmer. Design coordinator Charles Burbridge creates the overlay by tying individual metal rings to lengths of monofilament at varying intervals and hanging them in front of the red draperies.

Host Lee Snijders creates sparkle for the fireplace by handpainting glass votive holders with transparent glass paint. He gives the holders the look of stained glass by applying adhesives that mimic the look of leading. The votive holders sit atop miniature wooden shelves that are attached to the flagstone of the fireplace.
