When designers say they find inspiration all over the place, they’re not kidding. Case in point? This holiday soirée, hosted by designer Philip Mitchell and his partner, advertising executive Mark Narsansky, which owes its very existence to some pretty fabric. “We were at the Brunschwig & Fils showroom one day, looking at these beautiful patterns. They weren’t necessarily holiday fabrics, but they had these rich reds that we were inspired by,” Philip explains. “We weren’t looking to redo our apartment or anything like that, but we started brainstorming what we could do with them. We thought, ‘Why don’t we have a party and incorporate them somehow?’” One high-design theme, 60 guests and several bright ideas later, we’ve got the scoop on how the stylish couple pulled off this fab holiday party in their 900-square-foot Toronto condo.
