We asked three designers to put together holiday decor inspiration boards using their favourite holiday decor themes. Evelyn Eshun brought us a romantic Parisian Storybook, Lisa Canning gave us a vibrant Fanciful Peacock decor scheme and Heather Segreti put together a sparkling Glittering Gold scheme. Browse our Decor Concept gallery below to see the pieces these three designers choose and why.

Parisian Storybook

THE INSPIRATION A Holiday season in Paris encompasses all that a “storybook Holiday tale” it is. Romantic, beautiful, timeless, classic, glamorous and more!

CREATE THIS LOOK AT HOME by mixing gold, silver and white elements. Add a dash of green spruce, fir and pine (natural of course). Layer your accessories by placing florals and accessories on mirrors. Add mini LED lights for added sparkle.

I LOVE THIS HOLIDAY LOOK because it is timeless and traditional! It is also abundant, glamorous, dressy and perfectly formal. It is simple in its expression, but very complex in its detailed layers.

  • I feel that people should go with the colors they love. I have 5/6 theme’s and rotate them per year. This year I am doing ocean (fish) items in royal blue/turquoise and aqua. I will use garland, pic and do funky things like a fish stocking for Christmas, adding cricut cut fish to candy canes, I will hang from a fake palm tree. I believe you should pick colors that make you happy. There is no right or wrong with any color you pick.
    I also do gold, a silver, white, a red/white, and eggplant/gold/olive green theme’s. I have had so much fun putting them together.

  • Hello Di – we agree! There really is no right or wrong as long as you love it. The ocean theme sounds fantastic – you’ll have to send us some pictures once you get it all set up.
