As I have mentioned (only about a million times) this month, we just moved to a new place! It is very small but cozy. I have moved from a 2800sq foot home to a 650 sq foot loft! Needless to say I have wayy too much stuff and not enough room! I bought a few things on sale last year assuming I would be using them in the old house, but moving to a new place has made things a little challenging for me. It is is big enough space for the two of us, but I tend to get emotionally attached to every little piece of decor I buy, so it has been difficult to edit.
However, I think I have managed to keep some of my favorites (it's hard to say because I only buy things I absolutely love!)..so I give you a mini tour of the space. It is an open concept loft, with 12 foot ceilings and lots of natural light! Most of it came furnished so please excuse the ugly sofa lol. It is only temporary so I have learned to accept it.
Most of my decor is from last year, which was predominantly "gold", but I did add a hint of colour this year..

HOME DECOR: black and gold christmas tree in a Rustic Facotry converted Loft in Toronto
My beloved black Christmas tree with all gold decor
I have been obsessed with Black & Gold combination for years now, I have had this tree for about three years, and I fall in love with it every single year!

White and gold is still going strong, a lot of my pieces I use all year around, I just added the wintry touches at this time of the year.

I couldn't resist all the bright red accessories. It is hard to add colour to any home in the winter. I used the Reindeer prints by SSprintshop as my inspiration to add hints of red in an otherwise neutral room. Tray from Target// Pine cones & Red Ribbon from Dollarama//Silver wreath from Sears

I kind of a thing for glass Cloches..I found them at a very reasonable price (of $7 and $3!!) from  Homesense. They are so versatile and so elegant looking. They are perfect for candles, small decorative pieces, Christmas ball ornaments, even cheeses!

bits of my home..
Oh yea, I also use my lil cloche for the dainty jewelery storage! I love how it adds a bit of sparkle. I also love collecting interesting ornaments, especially the ones with vintage feel. I found the "key" ornaments at Home Depot on sale! How cute are the antique shoe ornaments from Dollarama (I got 6 for $2!)//Gatsby style Champagne glass from Chapters Indigo

From far it doesn't look overwhelming, because each piece has multiple functions. I don't like to clutter the space, if it seems too much, then it probably is! I always take away a candle or two when in doubt..

There you go folks, a small tour and a mish-mash of Christmas decor trends. Because I say if you love it, buy it! I have black and gold on side, white and red on the other..and in the middle white and gold tying it all together, (heck, I even threw some silver in there) and I love it all! It was a challenge to put it all together because my decor was more a large house with multiple rooms..but let's not stress about the little things and enjoy this season! Merry Christmas everyone!



  1. Nice loft! I'll bet those 12' ceilings make the space seem larger than it is. Love your Christmas decor. xo

    1. Thanks you gorgeous! It's true the space looks a lot a bigger than it is..and I love it! I think 12' ceilings should be a standard height for any space!
