I have seen Regina’s work with Regina Gust Designs (formerly Twins Design Christmas) for years when working in homes around the Holidays. I was fortunate to get to know her personally when we were in the same fab home(see here) together for an Easter deadline. I thought It would be fun to do a spotlight on her Christmas Decor, since for over 20 years, Regina has been decking Houston’s halls with exuberant decorations and in more recent times was featured in the Frontgate catalogue. Whether she’s using fresh flowers, natural, glitzy or traditional elements, her creations always get the special “Regina” touch that give them a uniquely lush look.
Regina’s key goal in decorating for the Holidays is to bring joy to each client. And joy she does bring through customizing each home for the holidays using the clients existing décor as inspiration.
This wouldn’t fit in my living room for sure, but it is really spreading Christmas cheer for the students at Stephen F. Austin College! That is Regina, pretty as her tree, putting on its finishing touches. This tree absolutely glitters with its silver and gold decorations, fillers(sometimes call picks) and ribbons. Regina says fillers are essential for creating fullness in every design.
Fillers are branch like pieces that come in all styles that you can add into a base piece of garland or a tree. A good strategy is to add fillers first then ornaments and add the ribbons last.
You can get so much inspiration from all the different style represented on the trees at Regina's Holiday Boutique! This tree is adorned with natural decorations: pinecones, snowflakes and burlap ribbon. Every tree should have a little bit of sparkle and clear glass balls catch the light perfectly for a subtle shine in this organic look.
Garlands Galore………. One of Regina’s trademarks is her stunning garlands, all saturated with ornaments, ribbons and accessories, from elegant to whimsical, all her beauties really make you want to jingle all the way!!
Flock the Halls……………………. Remember the flocked trees? Well they are coming back. Regina loves using them for an all white look, mixing them with white ornaments, crystals and ribbons creating a truly elegant statement. See how she uses flocking in her designs below!!!!
Don’t stop at the tree!!!.......... To elicit holiday spirit throughout your house decorate, chandeliers, sconces and mirrors and more.
Along with our unique gifts, art and accessories we are so excited to feature jewelry designer Candice Dickerson at Segreto for our special Holiday shopping event this Thursday. Look forward to seeing you all! Feel free to pass on the invite or bring a friend! Till then--xo Leslie
