LifeStyle || Holiday Decor Home Tour || A Modern Take on the Traditional Christmas

It’s that time of year again, the holiday season is officially upon us. As per years past, I will be sharing a glimpse into my home as I get ready for Christmas. I’ve tried my best to link up as many products as you see picture but if I miss anything you are interested in don’t hesitate to ask me on Instagram or Twitter. I will try to answer any of the questions you may have. Hope you love it, and be sure to check out all the other Canadian bloggers opening their homes this season. I will link those home tours at the end of my post. Let’s begin…. imageFor our dining room this year, I opted for a traditional feel. For 2 years I’ve been trying to score a traditional plaid table runner, I scored this one the second week of November at my local Homesense location. The plaid really made me go with the red, white and green theme but that modern designer in me had to add the splashes of gold. I love adding candle light and LED wire lights to create a romantic yet magically mood. I found this balsam scented candles from Illume at Chapters Indigo.

When choosing a table scape I like to layer pattern, shine and texture. I opted for fresh greenery to add a traditional look, texture and smell to my holiday dining space. Next I played off of the plaid pattern by layering similar coloured plates. Finally, I added pops of gold throughout on the wine glasses, vases and cutlery.

Adding magically lighting with both the wire lights and candles. plus making a festive vocal point on the mantel. Those 3 easy steps are sure to add the seasonal appeal you’re looking for in your most used room.

    I was really excited to check out this post when I saw your snaps last week. Everything looks gorgeous – you did such a great job! Also, I think it’s so much fun that a whole group of you have taken on this same theme and sharing your ideas.
