Holiday Decor for the Design-Minded

November 26th, 2015

The holidays are here, and with them come tons of sparkle, shine and decor – some good, some not so much. Maybe you’re a holiday maximalist, with multi-coloured glass ornaments, fuzzy Santas, tinsel, the works – and that’s great! But if you’re looking for a more minimal, design-minded take on traditional holiday decor, we’ve rounded up some options you can pick up in the GTA. Click each image to shop from the source. Happy holidays!

1. Mint & Silver Garland, CB2 

silver-ball-garland-with-mint How perfect is this garland? We love the use of mint as a holiday colour. It adds a bit of freshness while still being festive. Bend this beautiful garland around a mirror, bannister or shelf and you have instant holiday cheer!

2. Wave Ornaments, CB2

wave-ornaments These ornaments have a distinct Tom Dixon vibe, but their metallic hues make them perfect for the holidays. Whether you fill a bowl or clear vase with them or just hang them on your tree, you really can’t go wrong with these ones.

3. Porcelain Cityscape, West Elm 

porcelain-cityscape-b Holiday villages are a decor tradition that remain popular today. It’s so much fun adding to your collection year after year and seeing your village grow. We love this set because it keeps that charm alive, but uses nice clean lines and a neutral palette.

4. Mirrored Geo Objects, West Elm

geo-mirrored-objects-c   We love these simple mirrored shapes because they project a cozy, holiday mood while using a trendy shape, which will keep your overall decor quite modern. Place one anywhere you need a little extra light, and don’t worry about taking them down after the holidays are over!

5. Deer With Glitter Antlers, West Elm

6. Taro Candle Holder Set, EQ3

Mimic the style of tapers without the dated shape with these beautiful copper votive holders. These would look beautiful as a centrepiece, on a mantle, or in a corner that could use a little extra light.

7. Snow Starlit Trees, Restoration Hardware

Their delicate lines won’t overwhelm even the most minimal of spaces, but they still have an instant holiday spirit. Multiple sizes mean you can add layers of light and texture to any room.
