Beautiful holiday decorating pictures.

Linda at Lime in the Coconut! said...

Oh...THAT was fun! Some great new blogs (notto mention some great OL ones!)

I think NOW I may be ready to deal with those green and red tupperware boxes that keep staring at me as I walk by...ignoring them.

Time to do some decorating!

Visual Vamp said...

Thanks for including Holly Golightly!
I'll be tuning in.

Our Porch in Hillsborough said...

If only I'd seen these pics before decorating . . . oh well, great ideas for next year (especially the Holly Golightly tree!). Cheers.

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

What a great roundup of holiday inspiration here. The Holly Golightly tree made me smile!

I'm so grateful that you do these podcasts for us. I have enjoyed them all. Wishing the happiest of holidays to you, too! :)

ArchitectDesign™ said...

Love hearing your ideas each and every episode! I listen via itunes podcasts on my ipod while at work or on roadtrips!

Lindsey said...

Thanks for all that you do, Ladies! I listen to your podcasts when I'm doing my own home decorating projects and have learned so much from you!

tartanscot said...

Ladies,

Thank you so much for including my home in your holiday roundtable round-up! I couldn't be happier if I were twins!

This is the perfect thing to listen to while I send out my Christmas cards!

niartist said...

Oh My Goodness! Thank you SOOOOOO much for featuring my trees. I am just very very very thankful, and humbled. Just so you know, you are correct, there is a 8.5' pencil artificial tree under all of those peacock feathers (about 700). I put a lot of effort into these this year - and it's so wonderful to have that recognized! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

Kathy said...

I look forward to your podcasts so much! I have learned so much, and have also been inspired..Merry Christmas. Kathy

Style Redux 2 said...

Thank you so much for the mention of Chinoiserie Chic and Style Redux. What a thrill! And thanks to each of you for all the effort you put into The Skirted Roundtable. I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoy it and have learned from it. A zillion kudos to you and happy holidays to you all. I have decorated 10 trees this year, so everyone keep reading Chinoiserie Chic to see them all! I can't wait until you return in January, so I plan to listen again to each of your podcasts.

katiedid said...

Hi gals!
Thanks so much for the round-up. It has been a very busy year, (in a good way!) But it has taken me away from spending time blog-gazing like I love to do. Thanks for introducuing me to some gorgeous blogs that I had not had the pleasure of finding quite yet!! I am looking forward to getting to know them better!

Wishing you all very Happy Holidays!
Katie

Jennie Horn said...

One bit of feedback, can you change the image links to open in a new tab or window? Sometimes I forget and it takes me away from your site while I'm listening!

Megan said...

Oh you gals! Giving away a holiday gift - the Skirted Roundtable is a gift in itself - and always a little holiday listening in whether it's the three of you having a chat or these absolutely marvellous guests you've lined up for us lesser mortals. Have a great holiday break - but don't be gone for too long!

Judy said...

Thank you, Ladies, for all you do to keep the creative fires in all of us burning! I have enjoyed every post and look forward to 2010!

Happy Holidays to all three!

Deliciously Organized said...

Lovely Holiday photos! I am very inspired by the photo with the "make the season bright" mantel. I really want to make something like that!

Carol Ann said...

Thank you Megan, Joni and Linda for a the many hours of blog listening...
I call you my talking blog, and tell my hubby unless the house is on fire, do not interupt me if I am listening to my talking blog.
The best of the holiday season to you all. Regards, Carol Ann

Happy Holidays!

Jenny C. said...

I only found Cote de Texas 6 months ago (I know...where have I been?). Once found, I have not missed a single post. Then, I followed Joni's link to the SRT and discovered another addiction. I love listening to you ladies. I learn something every podcast and appreciate how you three make interior design so accessible.

Looking forward to much more in 2010.

Renee said...

Love everything! Lots of great ideas.

Thank you so much for your beautiful blog. My favorite time of day is to bring a nice cup of piping hot green tea and enjoy your newest post. Thank you and i hope you have a blessed Holiday1.

Lollyblogger said...

Happy, Happy Holidays to all 3 of you. Thank you for making my walks less tedious, and although I look silly with my little notepad that I jot down little tips and tidbits (I learn something new w/ every podcast!) it is well worth it! I am now the proud owner of a white slipcovered couch (not Ikea Joni, but Room and Board), a bit of seagrass and am now saving up for an Aidan Gray lamp. My living room adores you, and is most grateful.

susan said...

Thank you for gathering these sites into one fabulous place! Hope you have a lovely break and wonderful holidays. Thanks for the give away opportunity. See you in 2010!

Best wishes to Megan, Joni and Linda for a wonderful Christmas Holiday. You have earned all of the surprises to be found under your tree and the thanks from all of us who read and listen to your facinating interviews. I am looking forward to Stephen Drucker as well. I hope you will ask him some questions about his special friendship with Ian Garten (whom I love).

I LOVE the SRT! I play the podcasts while I work in my studio (I design children's clothing) and it truly is the best of both worlds for me. The Alessandra Branco show was my favorite! Happy Holidays!

Linda in AZ * said...

* Well, helllllllloooo, is there ROOM for one more comment here???? Loved the pics, especially VV's HOLLY GOLIGHTLY~~~ It's SUCH FUN & soooo DIFFERENT & HAPPY!!! I actually found a tree just like that thru google, that hooked me up to the right store, so I ordered one. It's due "any minute" (yeah, right, & "the check's in the mail"!). Am putting it in our MBR that was just redecorated in mostly versions of whites, creams, & grey/blues... it's clean, uncluttered & beautiful... Thought THIS "CONTRAST" would be so "unexpected" & FUN in there for the holidays!!!

Seeing the White House Ornament reminds me we haven't ordered one for several years~~~ Have about a 14 or 15 year old collection & SOMEHOW, ordering one every year gets "forgotten", UNTIL bringing them out each year!!!(Thanks for the reminder~~ They're always so beautiful!)~

Hugs to all,

Anonymous said...

Don't know how I first found Cote de Texas, but hooked on CDC is an understatement - the SRT - I make tea and time for it! Imagine being able to listen C. Moss, A. Branca - unreal! But great.
And from CDC and her two pals a host of links to so many other wonderful blogs - I recently lost a treasured rug due to a flood in the house - going to replace it with seagrass! Wonder where that idea came from? I am rethinking the whole house with new eyes thanks to SRT et al.

Thanks for the delicious looks inside wonderful homes, great designers and thoughtful comments.

I'm a riding instructor and horse trainer, so my days are usually outdoors, dirt covered and horse-obsessed! Thanks so much for the wonderful blog that provides a much needed diversion. I read it every morning before I go to the barn, while I have coffee. The pictures and style ideas and great commentary are hugely inspirational. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Karen said...

Thanks for all the education you provide,it is invaluable to me as a student of design. You don't get this type of input in the classroom. I rush to check your blogs and listen carefully and playback certain tidbits to make sure I hear it all correctly. You all have added so much to my life. Thank you and looking forward to you all in the new year!
Sincerely,

Linenqueen said...

What class and graciousness you bring to women who have aspirations to improve the appearance of their homes.

You rise above a simplistic, "oh what a pretty lamp" to why a particular lamp, on that particular table, in that particular room with those particular colors and fabrics near those particular windows.

Those of us who care but either do not have the time or the money are able to begin the process of understanding 'why' that is a good lamp in that location and on that table.

Discrimination of values should always express our own taste but your insight and breadth give one a huge step up on figuring out how to make a nice looking home into a home that looks special and expresses our individuality.

A year of your round table is a year of grad school in design and decoration. Your listeners and watchers never graduate but we do keep on maturing. Ann

Rachel said...

I've enjoyed listening to each of your points of view this year! It's been fun to hear you guys speak on the things I read about on your blogs!
Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukkah to you all!

Can't wait to hear the Stephen Drucker interview!

Anne said...

Many thanks to each of you lovely, talented ladies for all your efforts to bring great design into our homes. And...Happy Anniversary, Skirted Round Table!
I really enjoy listening to the broadcasts and hearing each of your takes on any given topic. Your ability to bring in fantastic guests to share even more with us is also amazing! You three ladies of design have quite a fan base here in blog land! : )

I enjoyed looking at the different Christmas decorating ideas today; so many styles to choose from! I am how thinking of placing a small Christmas tree in one of our kayaks!

I would be thrilled to receive an early Christmas gift from any one of you! : )

Love, love, love all the information. It is like being privy to a design class each time I listen to your programs. Please keep them coming for all the "little people" who don't have access to personal design help but never the less want to have a home that is well styled for lack of a better word.
Blessings!!!!!!!

Congratulations on the success of your podcast. You 3 have taken this idea and run away with it. It was brilliant to put 3 such talented and creative people together for SRT. I'm trying to not thank you for these wonderful new sites you've introduced me to. I'm already on this laptop way too much, and now that you've shown me even more wonderful places to go, I'll never sleep again! I think there were only 4 that you mentioned that I currently visit. All the others you mentioned are new to me, and I'm afraid will become places I want to visit often. Wonderful podcast. Wishing the 3 of you the best for the holidays and a Happy Happy New Year! Looking forward to hearing more next year. laurie

Megan, Linda and Joni,
As someone who lives in the decor wastelands, I so look forward to listening to your podcasts, as well as reading your blogs and those you recommend. You are blazing a trail in delivering design content and discussion. I LOVE that decorators, editors and bloggers take so much of their time to speak to you--to all of us! Thank you so much! Happy holidays to you all and yours!

Maybe next year you could feature a pink flocked Christmas tree. That would be pretty. I'm thinking of getting one.

Thank you thank you thank you for taking the time to prepare these wonderful broadcasts for our benefit. I have bought quite a few books this year based on your recommendations and your guest speakers. I am a particularly devoted fan of Joni Webb and feel like I know her personally after reading all her blogs and listening to her now-familiar soft voice. Can't wait to hear the next installments in 2010! Happy New Year Y'All :) Cynthia

Great different views of decorating how fun, thank you. I love the White House ornament and this is the first year that I didn't get one, hmm those relatives must not like me.
