Cary Nichols Christmas Home Tour

Today I have the most wonderful treat for you! Welcome to the Christmas home tour of Cary and Jay Nichols. They have lived in their new home a little over three years now, and every square inch is breathtaking. Cary has a sophisticated style with a luxe touch and a flair for glamour. And for Christmas, she has decorated every room with eye catching holiday decor to celebrate the season. Their dogs Maggie and Harry {not shy to the camera to say the least} were exceptional tour guides.

Living Room

As you walk into Cary’s home, you step into her elegant white living room. The chairs by the fireplace, the cocktail table, and other home decor pieces were handed down from her parents. Most came from Hong Kong where they lived. The cocktail table is truly a one of a kind piece to treasure.

Dining Room

The first thing that caught my eye in the dining room besides the gorgeous peach color was the custom built in shelves. On these shelves are more antique jade pieces and ginger jars from Hong Kong. The sweet high chair in the corner was an antique child’s barber chair that her grandfather turned into a high chair for her and her siblings.

Characterized by soothing hues and attention to detail, their den exudes coziness. The wall color is Farrow and Ball Churlish and the handsome chandelier is from Shades of Light.

The Kitchen

I love the open floor plan. The den and kitchen are essentially one creating a wonderful flow and overall welcoming feel to the home. Seen below, I was fascinated by this chandelier which is solid pewter and a reproduction of Williamsburg Crafthouse.

The Man Cave

Every man’s dream, the man cave is complete with a soft leather sofa for lounging, TV and fully stocked bar. We also found their dog maggie in here taking a break from all of our chatting.

Master Bedroom

If you are looking for ideas for your master bedroom, you’ve come to the right place. Take a look at this soothing retreat. I would never leave. The Thibaut wallpaper and the mirrored side tables from Horchow are to die for. Across from the bed is a very special writing desk which used to live in the home of Robert E Lee.

Before we left, I had to peek outside at the amazing backyard pool area designed by Marcia Fryer. I’m speechless. When can I move in?
