As it is Christmas and holiday inspiration is all around us, I wanted to share some images of Christmas light decorations in Dallas. It is nice at this time of year to take a break from our demanding antique furniture business and enjoy the rich traditions and splendor of the season. We were fortunate to be there just last week, and had fun looking at and photographing amazing displays of holiday lighting splendor. We felt these photos would be perfect to share with everybody.
Christmas lighting in Dallas is a serious affair ~ from shopping villages to private homes ~ creating beautiful sights to behold. There are businesses that specialize in decorating for Christmas when a client wants to go “all out”.
Our dog, Louis, attempted to befriend the animatronic reindeer outside of someone’s home. He was also very interested in the Clydesdale pulling the carriage.
In Highland Park, a community long ago surrounded by the expanding city of Dallas, one can see horse-drawn carriages for hire, decked out in holiday majesty, trotting thru lavishly decorated neighborhoods and filled with holiday sightseers.
At our store we have been dreaming of a White Christmas. It is one of my favorite holiday color schemes, layered with crystals and centered with cream bisque centerpieces. You can add silver or gold elements in this design’s palette as well as pewter, antique bronze and mercury glass ornaments ~ all of which will add a special luminescence to the display.
May these images inspire us and add to the Magic of Christmas! And on behalf of everyone at Inessa Stewart’s Antiques & Interiors, we wish you and your family a Merry Christmas, a Joyous Holiday Season and prosperous New Year!
