Wow! Our first Christmas at the Mansion event was a huge success, despite a little rain. Jennifer and the Hermann team transformed the Giddings Stone Mansion into an absolutely stunning holiday home. Seeing the rooms decorated for the season made it easy to envision a family living there. Rather than opting entirely for period decorations, Jennifer chose to use current decor that blended timelessly with the antique backdrop of the mansion. It truly brought the grand home to life while also providing endless inspiration for the upcoming Christmas season.

And don’t worry too much if you missed it–you can still see many of the fabulous items and accessories offered at Hermann Furniture! Be sure to mark your calendar for November 6, 2016, for our second Christmas at the Mansion.

Now, grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and enjoy a tour of Hermann Furniture’s Christmas at the Mansion 2015.

Downstairs Entry and Hall

A traditional Christmas color was used to unify each part of the downstairs grand hall. From the existing chandelier to the Christmas tree, floral arrangements, and the ribbons, red was the perfect accent.

Downstairs Parlor

Gold and silver gave this space a more formal yet neutral feel. Burlap and simple craft paper wrapping under the tree offered texture and kept the room from being too formal to be inviting.

Gorgeous golds and jeweled fruit made this the perfect table for Thanksgiving or Christmas. The urn centerpiece featured gold branches with glass ornaments that caught the lights for an added sparkle.

Our Talented Team

This all started with one idea from Jennifer Hermann. Her idea grew into a vision that she and her parents, John and Patsy Herman, along with the entire Hermann Furniture team, brought to fruition with many hours of hard work. It was a beautiful fundraiser for the Heritage Society of Washington County, and it is something that the Hermann family has already committed to again for next year.
