Wandgestaltung

Step into the Sohrs' foyer, and one thing is clear from the interior's original banister and millwork paired with a graphic printed wallpaper: This decorating duo has a deep respect for the traditional but also likes to take things up a notch. We had a hunch that their mix-and-match philosophy would create sunny inspiration that we could steal this season. Their major piece of advice: "Don't let the actual holiday at hand dictate your look. Instead, let your own style lead the decor so everything is a reflection of you," says Gen. It can be intimidating to branch out from classic schemes, but the Sohrs welcomed us into their home and proved that Christmas decorating can be more than just red and green. Get inspired by their fresh combinations of patterns, unconventional colors, and years of family collections.
