there’s no place like home

CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS OFTEN CHANGE OVER THE YEARS. Families grow, and sometimes families get smaller. Homes change, rooms get bigger and storage gets smaller. What we hang onto as the pieces of Christmas evolves over time, too. Maybe you’re like me and you just have to have the same star on the top of the tree, the same ratty stockings on the mantel or the same cheap velvet ribbon ornaments on the tree that you bought for your first Christmas with your husband when you were young and broke. Or maybe you do what I sometimes wish I would do more of—be always up for fresh new looks; trying out fun new accents, colors and motifs; or changing it up for Instagram. No matter which way your holiday bell rings, though, what…

festive welcome

What better way to set the holiday stage than right at the front door? This English cottage on our cover inspires all things jolly and bright.

STYLE TO MATCH Of course, not…

christmas by the curb

How do you make a small home festive and functional during the Christmas season? The answer is a covered porch and lots of garland. “This is a shotgun house,” says interior designer Kaitlyn Blair of Spruce Homes. “They take out one house and put two houses in instead. We have a lot of these in Saskatchewan.” WINTER WEATHER For an area with short summers and long winters, it’s important for the homes to have all-season capabilities. “In Saskatchewan we get up to minus 40 degrees during the winter,” Kaitlyn says. That means building a large porch for functionally. “People like to have a big porch to hold outdoor equipment and be able to put on their boots,” she says. Conversely, during the summer, the porch serves for relaxation. “Summers here are short…
