Who says you can’t be cozy and glam for the holidays? With a little bit of colour, a little bit of sparkle and a playful festive spirit, you can have the best of both worlds! Start with the staples that will work for you all year and then accentuate your space with some holiday highlights.

This classic round Diane dining room table and elegant studded Gesua chairs from Decor-Rest are a perfect combination for every seasonal affair. Round tables are also great when you need to pull up extra chairs for unexpected holiday guests.


These red and green tartan plates from Williams-Sonoma offer just the right amount of childhood nostalgia and warmth to the holiday, but transition seamlessly into the winter season too.


Hang these sparkly 3-D metal stars from Pier1 Imports at different heights in the corner of a room to create an irresistible point of interest. They’re great for mantles too or go with multiples of 3 or 5 and hang them off of a modern lighting fixture in the dining room to “up” the glam effect.


Why not bring a little high-heel inspiration (ahem, obsession?) into holiday decorating? This golden, high-heeled stocking from Pier 1 Imports is unconventional, urban and above all, fun!


Great lighting can give any space character and dimension. This Goldie Lamp from Decor-Rest is subtle and sensational at the same time. Its traditional silhouette brings a touch of class to any room but it doesn’t take over the festive limelight. It can be a workhorse in any cozy and glam holiday decorating plan.

Nothing says holidays like candles and votives. Flickering flames are so quintessentially cozy. Add some shimmering textures to glamourize the look – like “beyond holiday red” Crate & Barrel candles or gold votives from West Elm.


This holiday-inspired wine bag from Williams-Sonoma is a perfect accompaniment to a hostess gift. I love its simplicity and coziness. If you like it too, consider it for your own holiday décor.
