Looking for ideas, inspiration or tips for decorating your home this Holiday season? Southern Pines artist/designer Sherry Samkus spoke with Deborah Salomon of Pinestraw Magazine this month and delved out some great advice for sprucing up your home once the Thanksgiving decorations have been put away. 

Sherry recommends working with existing decor and avoiding 'over-decorating' or relying on tired trends. For example, Sherry replaced wall art with family photos taken at Christmas.

"Look around, see what you have and what can be done with it,” Sherry told Pinestraw. 

Learn more about Sherry's holiday home in December's edition of Pinestraw Magazine, Moore County's monthly magazine.
