Interior: Glitz and glam holiday style

The Vancouver condo of up-and-coming designer Emma Comesotti is dressed for the holidays in glitz and glam – a reflection of her home’s everyday style.

“I’m a wrapping fiend!” admits Emma Comesotti. In fact, her holiday gifts are so beautifully wrapped, they often put their recipients into a bit of a predicament. “When I give people their gift, they say ‘It’s so perfect, I don’t want to open it!” This comes as no surprise. This designer and co-owner of Vancouver design firm Philosophy Design is able to draw from an abundance of expertise and apply an eye for all things elegant, whether she’s putting up decorations, hosting a Christmas dinner party or simply wrapping Christmas gifts (which is done while she’s watching her favourite holiday movies).

Emma’s 1,040-square-foot Yaletown condo in Vancouver, which she shares with her husband, Roy, and their Siamese cat, Mia, showcases a luxurious contemporary classic aesthetic. Straight lines offset curvaceous pieces; intriguing pattern creates interest; a few organic touches add texture; and a palette featuring grey and warm white, with hits of chartreuse, silver and gold, is both glamorous and soft. Their sophisticated condo (decorated by both Emma and Roy when they moved in almost five years ago) ended up inspiring a new holiday look for Emma.
