As the year draws to a close we realize what that nagging thing in the back of our mind was reminding us to do. No, it wasn’t to buy a gift for the neighbour (we already did that), or to get the turkey ahead of time (did that too and it’s organic!). It was setting New Year’s resolutions!

The holidays are here, and with them come tons of sparkle, shine and decor – some good, some not so much.

Happy holidays!
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!
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.
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.
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!
Okay, we couldn’t resist just a little glitter! These cute, trendy deer heads would look great above your mantle or in an entryway. They’re super fun and will fit right in if your decor is already a little quirky and playful.
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.
These twinkly trees are the perfect neutral but festive addition to any room. Their delicate lines won’t overwhelm even the most minimal of spaces, but they still have instant holiday spirit. Multiple sizes means you can add layers of light and texture to any room.
