Tiffany's Bedecked Bachelorette
Our very own, Tiffany Piotrowski gives us a peek inside her festive bachelorette apartment in Toronto. Pretty in pastel and decked out in glitter and gold, her tiny 400 square foot apartment is big on holiday style! Tiffany shows us how to get the look to give your space vintage charm with a feminine twist.
Think outside the box when decorating your space for Christmas. Your wreath for example, doesn’t necessarily have to go on the front door of your house. Other great places could be over a mantle, in front of a window, on a bedroom door or over a painting, like I’ve done here.
My bachelorette apartment is decorated in a variety of soft hues. Rather than attempt to overhaul my everyday look for the holidays, I embraced a pastel theme in my décor. Sticking with silver and gold ornaments is a foolproof way to add some festive spirit to any colour scheme.
I love 'shopping' in my parents' basement storage room. I remember this vintage brass deer used to be on display by our front door when I was growing up, so I was happy when I found him again! I placed him in a gold serving tray among mini ball ornaments and a matching pair of crystal Tiffany & Co. candlesticks for sparkle.
A tiny tinsel tree decorated with soft pink and mint ornaments gives just the right amount of colour to a silvery palette, and the overall look becomes a nod to a 1950s-style Christmas.
My bar cart was a lovely find at a local flea market. I change it up slightly every season. For the holidays I've added this fun golden nutcracker that stands tall among the barware, and some candy canes that double as stir sticks in each of the glasses!
A glass bell jar filled with small glittery ornaments is a simple and elegant way to dress up your coffee table. Plus, if you're starved for space, a tabletop bell jar filled with baubles makes a great alternative to larger scale Christmas decorations.
