Where Designer Chris Roughan Shops for Holiday Décor
Chris Roughan of Roughan Interiors is well-known in Greenwich, New York City, Palm Beach and beyond for her warm and sophisticated style. Since 1994, she has focused on carefully listening to clients to create spaces they truly love to live in. “Every interior should be functional while remaining aesthetically purposeful and elegant,” says Roughan. One of her favorite times of year to decorate, in her own home as well as in those of clients’, is the holiday season. These are the places she goes to as she invests in quality pieces that will stand the test of time.
The Magnolia Company (online)
“This is my go-to for holiday dressings for the home. This Southern Charmer is a family-owned business focused on the harvest. [I love their] Magnolia leaves [to use] exclusively for handcrafted festive décor. Check out the swags, lacquered wreaths (shown above) and beautiful Magnolia leaves.”
Jamali Floral & Garden Supplies, 149 West 28thStreet, NYC
“It’s so much fun to go and shop in this NYC store located in the 28th street flower market; however, for those of you that can’t, they also offer the next best thing, ONLINE shopping. You’ll find three floors of general décor accessories including an area just for Holiday—each season is delightful! From vases, ornate decorative tree bulbs, lights, ribbon and pheasant feathers to green moss balls, you can discover almost anything here in this menagerie of designer finds.”
Burro, Los Angeles, 1409 Abbot Kinney Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA
Burro is a special boutique shop that has the best Holiday bazaar. Some specailities are Pendelton wool blankets for those chilly days by the fire or an accent to a mountain house leather wing chair. Walk in or go online; they also have great stocking stuffers.
The Historical Christmas Barn, 150 Danbury Road, Wilton, CT
“This is a great place to bring the family to pick out that special ornament. Located in one of the oldest boys’ schools in Wilton, each rooms highlights Holiday Décor from around the world. Some of my favorite items are their tree skirts and nutcrackers (shown above)—very special and worth the trip. Just call before to make sure they still have them in stock.”
Rolling Greens Nursery, (various locations), Los Angeles, CA
“For fresh holiday décor, Rolling Green is the place to shop. It has unique home and garden items with three different spots in LA, including amazing dutch planters with vibrant amaryllis. It’s a must-see.”
Troy’s Nursery Farm,97 Bedford-Banksville Road, Bedford, NY
“Troy’s Nursery has it all, from real holiday trees to candy, festive stockings and fun Santas; it’s an experience for your entire family. It also has a farm stand and is an amazing nursery.”
Anthropologie, 700 South Rosemary Avenue #124, West Palm Beach, FL
“Anthropologie is a store which has many holiday gems during the winter months, especially for entertaining. The West Palm Beach store is a menagerie of glitter, ornaments, wreaths and stockings.”
“My favorite online Holiday experience is One Kings Lane. They have the most curated Holiday Décor from red tapestry table covers and vintage books to antique decanters. Mix and match for interesting pairings.”
Bergdorf Goodman Home Floor, 754 5thAvenue, NYC
“I just adore these bark pillar candles (shown above), and of course their home floor is like walking into a winter wonderland. The designer windows speak for themselves: exquisite NYC Holiday.”
