The holidays are fast approaching. Here are five ways to bring festive style to your home from Bombay:

1. Raise The Bar

Set up a well-stocked area for drinks so your guests can serve themselves. The Drummond Bar (below) boasts plenty of organized space for bottles and glassware. Because it's compact, it works well in most living or dining rooms. When not in use, the bar serves as a handsome perch for decorative trays or may be used as an additional buffet surface.

2. Welcome Overnight Guests

If you're lucky enough to have a dedicated guest bedroom, play up a luxurious hotel vibe with Bombay's Herning Four Poster Bed. Its carved detailing, rich wood stain and classic canopy create a grand yet cosy retreat. Deep red and gold accents in the Spice Route Bedding Collection help to set a festive theme.

3. Make Room For Everyone

With its generous size — it expands to seat eight to ten people — the Calais Dining Table from Bombay can help you to recreate a bygone era, when formal dinner parties were de rigueur. The rich wood grain and textured inlay table features a double pedestal base. For relaxed dining, the table's expansive surface is ideal for informal buffets.

4. Rethink Your Colour Scheme

Bombay is known for being a destination for traditional Christmas designs in Canada. Their Winterplum ornament collection — resplendent in rich plums, lilacs, mauves and blue purples — offers a fresh change from the traditional red-and-green decorating scheme. Combine with the Bombay Gilded Spruce Collection on a tree or strung on a garland, these ornaments will imbue a room with formal sparkle and sophistication.

5. Give a Signature Gift

Good manners never go out of style. The Glamour Mirrored Jewelry Box from Bombay makes a wonderful gift. It features a richly-detailed velvet interior and is a great way to inject a small dose of Art Deco-inspiration to a dresser or vanity.
