Christmas Decorations, Redux

About two years ago, Stiles and Jonathan’s house was featured in Style Magazine. So, just to get you in the holiday spirit… and to show you that too much is just right, we thought you’d like to see what the house looked like that Christmas!

Adopt the practice of filling a Revere bowl with beautiful glass and other ornamentsdec_11_halcyon3[6]

Jonathan is an amazing gardener and grew all of the amaryllis from bulbs, and timed them to bloom right at Christmas. They tuck in magnolia leaves from a tree on their property. dec_11_halcyon2[3]

More amaryllis and some cyclamen brighten the front hall.dec_11_halcyon4[3]

Place the tree in front of a window, so it can be enjoyed from all angles!dec_11_halcyon6[3]

Even though there are loads of ornaments, the tree is pretty simple.dec_11_halcyon8[3]

Flowers are everywhere and they make a big statement!dec_11_halcyon7[3]

The wood paneled walls just glow in the candlelight and have the most beautiful patina. dec_11_halcyon9[3]

There is much to admire people who take the time to decorate for the holidays!

And of course, there are gifts galore!

There’s nothing better than snuggling up to something soft and furry! Halcyon House has just the thing for doing that!

We found the most incredible, amazing and soft faux fur collars. They’re just the thing to wrap around your neck on a cold day. IMG_2704

The faux fur is so natural that you really have to double and triple check to see whether it’s real or really faux. IMG_2706

We also have headbands that will keep your ears nice and toasty on a cold day!

As always, if you’re interested in anything you see here, contact Eric at Halcyon House for more information.


When we were at the gift show in the summer, we spotted the most hilarious cards! We couldn’t resist ordering them for the store and for you!

These dogs are ready for the holidays!IMG_2754

L’Heure Bleu

Blue… it’s a color that conjures up bright skies, clear lakes, a huge ocean, and, if you’re in Texas, acres of bluebonnet flowers. At Halcyon House Antiques, we have blues of all shades from turquoise and aqua to the deepest nearly black blue.

Let’s take a look at our blues.

We hope that you don’t have the blues!

Orange You Glad…

That it’s finally fall? After those couple of crazy 85* days last week, it’s finally settled into fall!
That means we’ve broken out the orange accessories for your fall looks.
This bracelet is amazing… orange “coral” and rhinestones in a great classical design. While you might be tempted to pair this with a black sweater on Halloween, it’s more sophisticated than that.

We also have this Chanel-inspired bracelet that actually comes in orange and a few other colors.

Are you happy it’s fall?
