Renfrew Holiday Home Tour 2023

I am excited to share this year’s holiday home tour with you all! You will see new introductions, as well as our traditional favourites shown year after year. Over the past few years my sister Lisa joins me to creatively collaborate ideas and spend time together decorating for the holiday season. It brings me joy to create a cheerful and festive atmosphere in our home for our friends & family to enjoy.

Front Entryway

This year my sister Lisa and I filled the outdoor planters at the front entrance with fresh winter greenery foraged from the backyard. We added magnolia leaves, pine cones and red dogwood to add a festive touch that will last until spring.
As previously seen in our last holiday home tour is our white Briallen console. I love the elegant gold floral handle and how the sculptured petals add a unique charm to the entrance.
The gold reindeer are another new addition to this year’s Christmas décor and are a new introduction to Polanco Home Decor’s festive holiday collection.

Living Room

Displayed in the front window of the living room is a snowy white Christmas tree decorated with pink, silver and white ornaments.

Dining Room

As we enter the formal dining room, our bright fuchsia pink bench is the main focal point where our family & friends love to gather.
Lisa and I laid a long rectangular mirror on the dining table as a foundation for the centerpiece décor. I love the simplicity of the clear crystal reindeer and candle holders, while the mirror adds depth by reflecting the natural light through the crystal.


This year we renovated our kitchen! We updated the dark cabinets and counter tops to bright whites and grays, and replaced the original hardware with crystal and silver handles. I can’t believe how much brighter the room has become!

Next to the kitchen sink is an assortment of fresh eucalyptus in a set of portmeirion vases, and sitting on the window sill is a natural wood nativity set and a set of white bottle brush trees.
Displayed in the kitchen windows are 3 beautiful Norfolk pine wreaths hung with a brown velvet ribbon.
When we updated our kitchen this past summer, we added the Barilla chairs and counter stools from one of Polanco’s Canadian made furniture lines, Marcantonio Designs.

Family Room

In the family room we recently updated our drapes to a light neutral linen fabric, carrying over the soft white tones of our kitchen, which I love! I wanted to create a modern farmhouse aesthetic in the family room décor, using various wood tones, greens and whites.
For this year’s tree I decorated with pearly white, bright green, and gold ornaments, paired with wooden bead garlands to tie it all together.
On the coffee table are two tall white candle pillars nestled in small cedar wreaths, a set of my favourite decorative birds and ornaments displayed in a round wooden dish to match the aesthetic in the rest of the family room décor.


Meet Stella, my daughter’s bulldog. She loved being a part of this year’s holiday home tour!
The office is a very relaxed working space in our home, as you can tell Stella loves to relax in here.
Placed on the ottoman in the office is one of Polanco‘s best selling trays, decorated with 2 antique silver metal trees, a grouping of black candle holders and a vintage dove sitting on winter greenery.
I hope you enjoyed this year’s tour and found some inspiration for your own holiday decorating! Cheers to a happy holiday season and a happy New Year from the Renfrew’s!
