“Decor In The Personal Spaces of Three Charleston Designers” via The Post and Courier

December 16, 2012

Hot off the presses!!!  We are excited that The Post and Courier included Margaret’s Christmas decor in their article today.  We took the liberty of pairing up some of the article’s text with some images from The Post and Courier gallery.  Take a look at what Christmas looks like at the Donaldson house.

Christmas table
“…in the dining room, there is boxwood in silver julep cups and ornaments are paired with other silver pieces on the table.” (Image and Text via The Post and Courier)
“At Christmas, clay angels that her sons made in early elementary school, 10 to 20 years ago, line the dining room mantel.” (Image and Text via The Post and Courier)
Santa in Hall
This larger than life Santa stands watch in the hall. Santa is from the days when Margaret co-owned the retail store, Details, Details on Meeting Street. (Image via the Post and Courier)
Margaret's Christmas Tree
“We have never done a themed tree,” says Donaldson of Margaret Donaldson Interiors and a member of the American Society of Interior Designers. “It’s not about following decorating trends, but about the birth of Christ and sharing time with family and friends.” (Text via The Post and Courier)
Living Room Christmas Mantel
“In the living room, the fireplace is the main focus, where hanging above is a 3½-foot-diameter wreath with a big red metallic bow. The wreath features holly berries, cones and pecans.” (Image and Text via The Post and Courier)
Nativity Creche
The hand carved creche that was received piece by piece when Margaret was a child.
