With its natural and cozy holiday theme, designer Denise Ashmore’s home was made for snuggling up by the fire.
For designer Denise Ashmore, decorating her home for the holidays isn’t about just one day— she wants a design theme that really embraces winter. “It’s really about the whole season and the nesting aspects at that time of year,” she says. “You just want to be cozy.” When she and her team from Project 22 Design took on the challenge to transform her home last year for the Kids Help Phone Homes for the Holidays tour, the idea was to make things feel like a work in progress—a celebration of all those moments leading up to the actual holiday. Cookies were in the process of being baked; garlands were being strung. “We wanted it to feel like you could come in and help be a part of things—it was Christmas in the making.”
