For today’s holiday home tour, I invite you inside the home of Terri and Tony Milikin. They live in Richmond, Virginia and together they have three beautiful children, Caroline, Christian and Carlson. Terri has exquisite taste and I am so thrilled to be able to share her classic style with European influence with you. On this Christmas Eve, I give you an elegant and sophisticated home tour. Happy Holidays!
Holiday Home Tour – Terri Milikin
Of all the holiday home tours I have featured over the past 4 years, Terri’s living room may be my favorite. This room is cozy chic and filled with all of the 2013 home decor trends.
Terri mixes and matches patterns and textures while creating an ethereal and soothing atmosphere. She incorporates a leopard print rug, a different animal print on the chairs, a mirrored coffee table, fabulous throw pillows, and makes it all work.
The mirrored panels on either side of the fireplace are fantastic.
What a great idea for coffee table books.
For tips on how to style your coffee table, I love Terri’s idea with two stacks of pretty coffee table books.
If you love the above living room, check out the fresh and bright blue and white sun room. If you are a blue and white china lover, you will love Terri’s delightful plate wall. We are thinking of closing in our screened in porch, and I am definitely keeping these ideas in my inspiration file.
Once again, I love how Terri decorates and fills her rooms with beautiful books about their favorite destinations. The Milikins love to travel and even lived in Belgium for two years.
In the dining room, Terri hangs a sweet little wreath on the mirror and adds a pop of red to her gorgeous centerpiece on the table.
In the kitchen is the most extraordinary orchid with three arms of blooms.
Another cozy spot with a soothing color palette, animals prints and blue and white china.
A cozy nook to relax and unwind. Love that sweet ottoman! So chic.
Thank you Terri for letting me visit your beautiful home. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
