Call me crazy, but when I think of holiday decorations, The Home Depot does not immediately come to mind. In fact, I think I just figured out that they sell Christmas trees, too.
Have I been living under a rock?
Not only do they have a remarkable selection of decor at AMAZING prizes, but they also have exclusive holiday collections from Martha Stewart Living. And, when Ms. Martha sets up shop, you know it’s gotta be fabulous. This year’s collections – Winterberry, Arctic and Celebrate – offer a beautiful assortment of ornaments, wreaths, holiday trees and accessories to complement traditional, contemporary and even super glam tastes.
WINTERBERRY: With red as the focal point, this collection is for the holiday traditionalist at heart. The frosted woodland theme includes deer, owls, birds, pine cones, and berry wreaths, plus hints of white, champagne and gingerbread to complement the strong Christmas red. This collection is especially suited to homes with dark wood accents or spaces with exposed brick walls.
ARTIC: If your décor style is a more contemporary look with a preference for cooler tones (love grey!), this collection is an excellent match. The elegant, snow-covered Arctic theme is a fanciful take on the holiday with snowflakes, polar bears, penguins and icicles. The colour palette includes ice white, silver, turquoise and deep blue, making it a fitting choice for a modern condo or industrial space.
CELEBRATE: If you love the glitz and the glamour of holiday entertaining, then you’ll appreciate the Celebrate collection for its warm and inviting look. Marked by bronze and gold décor, this theme includes sparkling wreaths, elegant baubles and swirl-patterned gold ribbon to ensure a sophisticated statement in any home.
Although we live in a home in the suburbs – not a modern condo or industrial space by any stretch of the imagination – we’ve always favoured the Arctic look. In fact, we’ve had a “Blue Christmas” for as long as I can remember… and even though my husband suggests switching up the turquoise, silver and white decor every year, I’m always hesitant to let go of our Arctic ambiance.
This year, I’m looking forward to incorporating pieces from the Martha Stewart Living collection at The Home Depot. Will be sure to post pictures! In the meantime, check out the gorgeous pieces online –
