Interiors director Meg Crossley shares her favorite holiday window displays and how to mimic the look in your home.
Everyone loves Christmas windows, as evidenced by the throngs of people checking out the displays in major cities across North America. The most notable ones are from high-end department stores like Holt Renfrew and Barneys New York, but I personally like the windows of the small independent shops.
I feel a kinship with the creative people behind those windows, and think they are much like our H&H design editors; they need to create something eye-catching, nostalgic, friendly, accessible, inspirational and most of all, relatively inexpensive. Here are some of my favorite small retailer windows in Toronto this year, with my tips on how to translate the look into your own home.
