Staying cozy and warm

"The living room, with its wood-burning fireplace, is the perfect cozy spot for gathering in the winter. The spruce Christmas tree is courtesy of a friend who lives on a former tree farm." To see the rest of the holiday home click here.

Gorgeous greens and golds

"The living room exemplifies the snowy, sophisticated colour scheme – white and silver with hits of green – used throughout for the Christmas decorations. The bay window provides a perfect spot to place the tree." To see the rest of the holiday home click here.

Traditional and regal

"The huge tree in the library is decked out with ornaments collected over many years. 'There’s no point in having a precious Christmas tree that the kids can’t help with,' says homeowner Michele Leighton Symons. However, they pitch in after their mum has hung all of the Murano glass balls." To see the rest of the holiday home click here.

Scandi silver and gold

"When the holidays hit, homeowner Tara Ballantyne elevates her simple white, grey, brown and black palette with metallics like silver and gold. “I’m always trying new looks and trends for my work as a stylist, and because I think in colour so much for my job, I like to come home to a muted environment,” says Tara."

Embellished fireplace

"Stacy reveals that there’s always a fire crackling during the winter season. The original brick fireplace is embellished with a simple garland, matching wreath and, of course, a pair of stockings hung by the chimney with care." To see the rest of the holiday home click here.

Loft-like living room

"Throughout the home, interior walls are clad in horizontal pine planks, modernized with glossy white paint, and the ceiling beams are exposed for a loft-like feel. The living room fireplace, with its floor-to-ceiling surround, features the same bricks used on the floor and outdoor patio." To see the rest of the holiday home click here.

Neutral living room

"The living room’s neutral, modern aesthetic is warmed up with natural materials, such as silk and linen, and colourful accessories. Alison created an ultra-modern Christmas tree by cementing apple tree branches (from a friend’s farm in Hockley Valley, Ont.) in a pot and trimming them with a neutral mix of gold, silver and off-white ornaments."

Contemporary classic

"A mix of modern and vintage-look Christmas ornaments suits the condo’s contemporary classic style and grey, warm white and chartreuse colour scheme. A couple of faux sheepskins act as a sophisticated Christmas tree skirt. “I’ve never liked the way a traditional tree skirt looks, so this is an inexpensive solution, and it adds a lot of texture and interest,” says Emma."

Simple and seasonal

"Don’t be afraid to switch out your everyday decor for the seasonal stuff, says Annie. Here, she simply removed a piece of artwork from her gallery wall and replaced it with a gold metal wreath hung from a pretty blue ribbon. She didn’t need to make a new hole in her wall, and her holiday decorations seem to seamlessly blend in with what’s always been there, for a look that’s festive but far from over the top."

Whimsical living room

"'Christmas is frenetic enough without adding bright red and green,' says Jennifer, who opts instead for a gentler palette. Holiday ornaments, some made from felt, appear in the same stormy greys, icy blues and warm whites you’ll find in this living room year-round. The muted colours and the simplicity of the decor are a nod to Scandinavian design, which Jennifer loves." To see the rest of the holiday home click here.

The ultimate lounge

"During the holidays, the living room is the ultimate place to lounge. "I made sure to include enough seating so everyone has a good spot," says Christine "And there are a lot of throws around, because it gets a little bit drafty."" To see the rest of the holiday home click here.

White and green

"The festive palette fits in nicely with the family room’s existing decor. The boxwood wreath and paperwhites add natural warmth." To see the rest of the holiday home click here.

Soft and subdued

"'The colour scheme here is subdued, with soft whites, warm mauves and natural linen tones, says designer Stacy McLennan. 'By keeping the walls and furniture neutral, the homeowners have a lot of flexibility. They can add colour with decor accessories or stick to a more sophisticated look.' In this open-concept layout, custom ottomans visually separate the family room from the dining area and offer flexible seating options." To see the rest of the holiday home click here.

Clean and elegant

"Designer Jennifer Brouwer says the living room is the epitome of her less-is-more philosophy. She used cleanlined, elegant furnishings to offset the space’s grand architectural features." To see the rest of the holiday home click here.

Bold bursts of fuchsia

"Matching chaises designed by Jessica make a welcoming spot for guests to cozy up to the fireplace with drinks and nibbles in the living room; the barnboard-clad console (made from wood found at Jessica’s parents’ farm) adds a hint of rusticity. The cowhide rug with hits of shimmer livens up the neutral palette, as do the bold bursts of fuchsia in the accessories and holiday decorations." To see the rest of the holiday home click here.
