Renfrew Home For The Holidays
We at Polanco Home Furniture & Interior Decor Solutions are excited to present to you our blog featuring the home of Polanco owners, Mandy and Steve Renfrew. This time of year is very hectic and stressful for most, yet Mandy always finds relaxation in decorating her home for the holidays. With the assistance of her incredibly talented sister, Lisa DiRocco, together they have created a beautiful and welcoming space to host family and friends during the Christmas season. We hope that this feature project inspires our clients during this festive time of year!
The minute you enter their home, it is evident that Christmas is Mandy’s favourite time of year! It is apparent by the amount of time and detail Mandy puts into decorating each room in her house. Maintaining her elegant & sophisticated design aesthetic, Mandy used natural coloured garlands, and decorations in silvers and whites. Three Christmas trees can be found throughout her home, each decorated in a different way.
Snow-covered garlands and tree are displayed in the front vestibule. The white entrance console is accessorized with clear glass reindeer and candle holders to complement the crystal glass knobs on the console drawers. Silver metal lamps and our favourite Bangkok mirror complete the space.
The family room is the space in which the Renfrew’s spend the most time enjoying the company of family and friends by the fire. The decor in this room is more casual than the living room, using softer tones with pops of colour. Mandy & Lisa brought the holidays into this space with a traditional green tree, garland on the mantle, media unit decorations, and coffee table accessories. Upon entering the family room, the guest’s eye is immediately drawn to the white monogrammed “R” placed above the fireplace mantle. The script style of which is the perfect representation of the elegant style of the home. The wooden piece was created by Mandy’s sister-in-law introducing an element of family into the room. It was important to Mandy that the mantle decor in the family room matched the tree. White accessories create a winter wonderland on the mantle, adding character to the space. Sprigs of purple berries introduce colour to the neutral theme. Pewter candle holders and shimmering glitter birds decorate the glass coffee table.
Many delicious holiday meals will be enjoyed around the gorgeous dining table in the formal dining room. This room was decorated slightly differently than the other rooms in the house. Mandy continued the theme of pink throughout the room, using her bright pink dining bench for inspiration. Silver accents complete the space, adorning the silver tree, console, and table centrepiece. Can you say glam?!
Decorating your home for the holidays should be a fun activity that you can accomplish with friends or family. Mandy would like to give special thanks to Lisa DiRocco for her assistance and expertise in this special project. Polanco Home Furniture & Interior Decor Solutions is a family-owned and operated business who understands that family comes first, especially during the holidays! Merry Christmas from our family to yours and all the best in 2018!
