Holiday House - Before and After

Hi folks! Today is Day 1 of 2 for the Progress Through Preservation Holiday House Tour and Tea. The hours for today and tomorrow are 10-3. Hope to see you!

I thought maybe I’d share a bit of how Hazel Tree Interiors has been involved with this fundraiser. Each of ten rooms/areas in the historic home of Sarah Vradenburg was selected by a local merchant to decorate for the holidays and give you all a sneak peek of what you can find at each shop during the gift-giving season.

I selected Sarah’s home office for our space and originally I was just going to bring items over that are for sale at Hazel Tree, put up a tree and that was all…but we got to talking, and Sarah ended up becoming a client in the process!

She was ready to make some changes and we were happy to help! And so, along with some of the trusted artisans and suppliers in our design services network, we set out to redesign Sarah’s home office. Here’s who helped me and what they did:

  • New paint color for walls and ceiling. Paint is no-VOC “Elements” by California Paints, sold by January Paint and Wallpaper
  • Paint applied by Ed Lewis of Lewis Quality Interiors
  • New draperies, lined with flannel for extra insulation made by local drapery designer Dale DiBernardo
  • Drapery fabric and trim and tufted chair fabric by locally-owned home decor fabric business BBerger Company
  • Artwork over the fireplace reframed by Jon Haidet of Hazel Tree Interiors
  • Radio cabinet retro-fitted and refinished by John Wilkie of Repurposed Relics
  • Octagon table laminated top and paint highlights by Laura Lee Wack
  • New area rug cut and bound from un-dyed 100% wool carpet with natural jute backing. Carpet from Masland Carpet and bound by local craftsmen Joe Chiarocci of Exquisite Carving Creations (or“Joe Rugz” as he’s known)
  • Reupholstery of tufted chair by Copley Upholstery
  • All accessories that we placed throughout the room for the tour are by various artisans that sell their work at Hazel Tree Interiors

There’s lots more of this historic home to see on the tour today and tomorrow, so we hope you’ll stop out for a fun afternoon, to support a great organization and to get in the holiday spirit (we have a decorated tree in our room too, you just don’t see it here!) And don’t forget the tea portion over at the gorgeous O’Neil House Bed and Breakfast!

Tickets available at the door: $10 tour only, $20 tour and tea
