For the family’s holiday celebrations, the mantel features an eye-catching display of silvers and greens. From the brushed silver cups holding pinecones shimmering in silver, to the glittery snowflakes hanging from sheer metallic ribbon, this is a magical vision of holiday cheer. A blanket of cascading greens covers the mantel and a clamming basket of shells sitting on the hearth provide natural elements that remind the Barkers of the nearby beach they cherish.
Denise is modest when it comes to describing her home and her style. For her it is just how she lives her life, with graceful respect for nature and the world around her. She is happy to call Cape Cod home, especially for the holidays.
