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.”
