We previewed the home in summer and Tim Valko and Jim Moore talked about their holiday decorating which merited a look for our December issue when holiday decorating is such an important part of the season. The pair has been putting together their decorations for over 20 years.

The stunningly decorated home is shimmering in good taste. Each room has a different theme. The living room tree is ablaze in multi color lights and gorgeous ornaments. It is accompanied with Christopher Radko hand blown finials placed on the piano and throughout the room.

The entry is a vision in white, with a tree festive with Robin Schultes blown glass ornaments – which can be found at the Toledo Museum of Art Store.

The most unique tree, however, was the Sci-Fi tree in the den – what fun, eclectic decorations. The detail on the ornaments is amazing and many were done by Victor Chiarizia, an innovative glass artist with works in many galleries in the US.

Their hard work takes weeks to unpack, place and take down but it is easy to see how much they enjoy the season. While the trees were exciting many nooks were decorated for fun, including the bar area and lower level.
