it’s very cold and there’s a lot of snow in many places around the united states right now. i experienced it first hand myself this past weekend in birmingham, alabama. there was snow, even a little ice, it was beautiful, truly like a winter wonderland.

this dining room decorated by designer alex papachristidis reminds me of a bit of winter wonderland- it’s glistening, it’s white, it’s absolutely wonderful. the hand painted gracie wallpaper looks like an icy winter scene and the chandelier looks like glamorous icicles.

alex decorated this dining room for last years kips bay showhouse. the room just graced the cover of the new veranda. pretty unprecedented  for a show house room to get such exposure, but well deserved, and it’s perfect timing because it looks and feels like a beautiful wonderland.
