A Home for the Holidays; Holiday Chic
Aberdeen Magazine is the guest of honor at this chic holiday bash!
Todd and Kiki Wanshura have invited Aberdeen Magazine over for their trend setting holiday party, complete with fancy drinks, fun finger foods, and nostalgic party favors. As you first pull up to the Wanshura’s residence, you find yourself taken aback by an enormous barn perfectly aged in a soft shade of silver, dwarfing the cottagey lake home. The cheery yellow cabin, in its elegant simplicity, looks to be straight out of New England. Once inside, you see how Todd and Kiki have intermingled bits of their Minnesota roots with the farmhouse appeal of their South Dakota home.
The decor is simple yet elegant, rustic yet modern. The layout is minimalist but cozy. A palate of woods and other neutrals is occasionally interrupted by accent pieces, antiques, and humor-inspired art. With help from Ann’s Touch Staging and Redesign and Kountry Kakes & More, the Wanshuras have adorned their quaint space with a few choice elements of festive appeal. The holiday chic look of Todd and Kiki’s holiday party says small town warmth with big city class. And the carefully chosen objects of attention maintain the cabin’s overall design theme: beauty in simplicity.
