Evoking the days when candles were the principal source of indoor light, the stately wooden candleholders flanking the mirror on the mantel cast a golden glow and a wintery scent. Instead of using more-formal vessels, we dressed up glass cylinder vases with wide satin ribbon in trendy orange and filled them with a traditional mix of seasonal red and white berries. The charming glittered star hooks, nods to the age-old symbol of Christmas, hold the stockings. To evoke the look of passed-down heirlooms, we transformed simple velvet ones in deep shades of forest green, eggplant, and rust by hot-gluing gold and multicolored fringe along the edges.
