This Holiday Home Is A Love Letter To Mid-Century Modern Style

The first Christmas in a new house is exciting — it’s fun to figure out your holiday decorating style, to see what looks right and what will suit the character of the home. For Todd and Kristen McMillan, spending Christmas in their new-build was a perfect opportunity to pair their love of mid-century modern minimalism with holiday warmth.

The McMillans are co-owners and designers at Ben Homes, a custom design and build company in Burlington, Ontario. In early 2017, when they set out to design their 4,128-square-foot home home, the second one they’d built for themselves, their two kids, Drew, 9, and Fisher, 6, and the family’s beloved dog, Ben (for whom their company is named), there was no question as to the style. “The open concept of a mid-century home allows the festive energy to flow through and creates a great setting for entertaining,” says Todd.
