Interior Design – Effortlessly Elegant Christmas Decorating Ideas To Try Now

H&H‘s Joel Bray and Reiko Caron transform the Garden Suite at Toronto’s Shangri-La Hotel into a festive and cozy space for the holidays. Get their expert tips on how to add sophisticated holiday style to your home.

To set the tone, Joel and Reiko added a faux Christmas tree to the living room. Next, they hung a garland with stockings under the TV in lieu of a fireplace. A large, wintry piece of art and metallic, cable knit and velvet pillows bring warmth to the sofa area. In the bedroom, pillows and a faux fur throw add texture, while a wreath above the bed brings seasonal charm. A line of mini potted trees along the windowsill in the bathroom offer a hint of cheer, and mercury glass accessories dress up the vanity. Watch how these details transform the space into the ultimate Winter Wonderland Suite, ideal for celebrating the holidays.

  3. What the hell is she wearing? It looks like she's ready to mop the floor! And that hair!

    The bathroom needed window coverage. I can't imagine anyone wanting to use the bathroom which is so viewable from the huge windows.

  5. Too many pillows on the sofa. The vine wreath on the headboard is silly. The tree was nice.

    Honestly one of the best and simplest makeovers I've seen in a long time. Thanks for sharing I'm gonna use this as inspiration 😀

  8. Making the sofa match the artwork? That’s just tacky. Everything else is just over done. 👎
