If you know Laura and me, you will know we go to a lot of events. We love them. Seeing what is happening in the city, learning about the newest items, and sharing them with you, our faithful readers. When we attend an event that knocks our socks off, we love to tell you about it.
You know what else Laura and I love? Christmas. And all the decorating that goes with it. Decorating brightens a room, brings together the family, and is an expression of who we are.
Combine a great event with the holiday season and you have the recipe for one incredible day.
This past week, we hosted an event in a space that was unreal. Did you see it on our Insta stories? We were at the Canadian Tire Christmas House, where every room is decorated in one of seven holiday colour collections from their CANVAS line. Spectacular doesn’t even begin to describe the beauty.
The visual imagery began from the moment you stepped into the foyer. Enlisting the help of stylists and Tracy Platt, Style and Design expert for Canadian Tire, this house had all the latest Christmas trends of 2018 on display. Each item in the house, whether it was the furniture, toys, entertaining essentials or the Christmas decorations, was from Canadian Tire. Meaning, what you see is what you can get all in one place at Canadian Tire, Canada’s Christmas Store.
What I liked most about the house was the ease in which I could envision the items fitting into my own home. Each room had its own theme, based on the hottest colours of the season.
This year’s colour of the season, Serene Rose, was truly one of the showstoppers of the house, featured in the grand front room and in a secret, ‘infinity mirrors’ room. This secret Serene Rose room was inspired by early morning sunrise over the snowy prairies. We personally loved the CANVAS Glass Ball Garland for around our banisters.
White, with touches of pewter and platinum silver tones, was used to create an alpine winter wonderland. The CANVAS White Pinecone and Acorn Set will add a special panache to your living room.
It is not hard to imagine how silver brightened a room. Shimmering ornaments of silver combined with twinkling tree toppers, all by CANVAS, creates an elegant and magical Christmas tree. The Canadian Tire Christmas House added in some polished, platinum and nature inspired motifs to help make it a glittery collection. The CANVAS Mixed Metallic Ornament Set is perfect for every tree.
The colour gold is featured in the entryway and sprinkled throughout the blue room. From sparkling ornaments to special holiday gems, the Gold Collection adds a touch of feminine and class to every space. The CANVAS Gold Brushed Lantern would look beautiful atop any fireplace mantle.
For rooms that scream for a splash of pizazz, bright and bold colours were used from the CANVAS Brights collection. Using a palette of confetti tones, these holiday accents pop with colour and add a dash of fun and light-heartedness. The Brights collection was infused in each of the kids’ rooms upstairs where the hottest toys of the season were featured. We think these Nutcracker Crackers will be fun for our kids’ rooms and all of the kids-at-heart out there.
And lastly, Christmas would not be Christmas without the colour red. Holiday-themed décor from Canadian Tire can come in a variety of reds, from tartan and checks to metallic or cranberry; every room in your house will feel like the holidays. Red was displayed in the dining room and we couldn’t wait to cuddle under The CANVAS Faux Wool Throw.
