From gilded baubles and dapper displays, to whimsical luminaries and sumptuous spreads, we asked Regina Washburn—an interior designer with more than 30 years of experience decorating homes for the holidays—to share some of her favorite Yuletide vignettes, indoors and out.

For a timeless andopulent aesthetic, Washburn is fond of mixing tones of black, cream and gold with a little bijoux. “Adding touches of jewelry to your tree creates movement and subtle elegance,” she explains. For added sparkle, the designer bedazzles plain ornaments with beads, rhinestones and glitter: “I suggest applying jeweled buttons, earrings and brooches attached with a craft adhesive to create your own unique bling.“ Boxes with elegant wrapping complete the look.
