Get Inspired with a Holiday House Tour

Find house-loads of ideas for revamping your decor



Are your Christmas decorations still packed away in the attic? Maybe you want to put away the usual caroling figurines and tired fake evergreens but can’t figure out how to start from scratch. Perhaps you just want a good dose of cheer to kick off the season. Whatever your holiday needs, the Symphony NH Holiday House tour is sure to meet them and more.

On December 3 and 4, six Nashua-area homeowners welcome you to explore their rooms, which will be decorated for the season by professional interior decorators and designers. From traditional trees to modern, minimalistic takes, each home offers something different. Find new ideas for the mantel, a theme for your entryway and centerpiece inspiration. You’ll also enjoy seasonal music along the tour. In addition to spending a lovely and festive afternoon, you’ll be glad to know that you’re assisting a good cause — proceeds from the event benefit Symphony NH.

For the 2015 tour, the classic North End home of Brian and Deb Zeman had recently been remodeled under the guidance of an architect and Ruth Axtell of Tout le Monde Interiors. Now the kitchen space opens to an informal living area with the holiday tree and other festive touches throughout.

Fortunately, the exotic wood was extremely light. Table décor by Ruth Axtell. Above right: The home of Robert Oot and Carol Robey of Hollis featured, in part, Robey’s art studio. The New Hampshire Orchid Society provided blooming orchids to further enliven the space.

The Nashua home of Bobbi Sinyard featured her extensive collection of Department 56 Villages. Featured here is the Dickens Village.
