Pretty Christmas Light Displays

We recently had our first snowfall in Toronto, and as a Winnipegger used to nothing less than a bright white Christmas, I was happy to see it. Although it wasn’t here to stay, I’m excited to do a little holiday decorating. I don’t have the storage space in my small apartment to house boxes of decorations, so I’ll be keeping it simple. For me, it’s twinkly lights that make a space feel festive, so I’m looking for ways to incorporate them both inside and out.

Here are some inexpensive projects I’d like to try:

I love the arts and crafts feel of lights piled inside beautiful glass containers.

I’m going to try to bring nature indoors by wrapping fallen branches in white lights and hanging a few shiny baubles. (Similar to the ones made in this Online TV segment.)

This hallway is magical. The dreamy ambience is something I could live with all winter.

And finally, if I ever own a beautiful brownstone such as this (Santa, are you listening?), this will be my decorating inspiration. Over the top? Maybe. But it certainly gets me into the spirit. Happy holidays!
