High/low: Traditional Christmas entryway

Make a grand welcoming this holiday with two different, yet classic Christmas styles.

If there’s ever a time to embrace the classics, it’s Christmas. That’s why we love these traditional entryways, oozing with old-school charm on both a Santa and a Scrooge budget. Can you tell the difference?

Best dressed

Trend alert! We're seeing these high-contrast dressers everywhere, from our favourite stores to the best blogs to our top Pinterest boards. The painting of the rich dark-wood frame with glossy white drawers is modern, masculine and statement-making. We love these version for their dainty little legs (adding a bit of femininity) and pretty ring pulls (adding a touch of tradition), which make them a match for almost any style. L: Walnut-veneered maple Sutton Dresser in Tribeca with Cream drawer fronts, Art Shoppe, $5,499. R: Mahogany-veneered hardwood Dresser with capiz-shell veneer drawer fronts, Union Lighting and Furnishings, $2,330.

Paper chase

We hate to admit it, but we put as much pride in our gift-wrapping as we do in the gifts we give. We want people to hesitate before tearing them open, think twice abou ruining our packaging job and maybe even try to steam the tape off to keep the paper pristine. Are our expectations too high? We don't think so -- especially when we pick out our frameworthy specialy paper like this. 1 Creative Colours Solid in Lavender Pearl, $11 per 50' roll.  2 Creative Colours Printed in Gold Brocade Damask, Creative Bag, $11 per 50' roll.  3 Brushed Silver, Hallmark, $5 per 3-yard roll.  4 Handmade Nepalese Deco in Purple, $5 per 20 x 30, sheet.  5 Handmade Nepalese Tapestry in Natural, $5 per 20" x 30" sheet. 6 Handmade Nepalese Damask in Purple with Gold, The Paper Place, $5 per 20" x 30" sheet.  7 DCWV Dark Romance, 12" x 12", Michaels, $25 per 24-sheet.
