A Tailored Holiday Home With Elegant Christmas Decor

At Christmas, most of us ask for something new. These homeowners wanted something old — or that appeared old, as if it had been lived in and loved for years. A dream team of architect Lorne Rose, builder Teddington Homes and designer Silvana D’Addazio made their wish come true. On a big lot in leafy uptown Toronto, they created a 4,000-square-foot house defined by its tailored symmetry and Georgian details. Inside, walls and ceilings are richly panelled, molded and coffered. While elegant, the home is far from precious or fussy, as the homeowners have three school-age children.

To prep the house for the holidays, Silvana applied her flair for detail to subtle embellishments. “I try not to overdo anything — even at Christmas,” says Silvana. Click through for simple and sophisticated Christmas decorating ideas.
