HOLIDAY HUSTLE A creative homeowner uses pink, silver and gold to impart holiday sparkle and shine
Red and green aren’t her thing, so Sarah Walker fills her home with pink, silver and gold to impart holiday sparkle and shine.
“To me, Christmas is the time to create memories,” says designer Sarah Walker of The Curated House by Sarah Walker. To set the scene for these treasured moments, she and her husband, Graham, transform the 1960s Oakville, Ont., home they share with their sons Noah, 14, and Tate, 3, into a lovely shimmering wonderland. Here, romantic floral garlands and lush evergreen boughs are punctuated with elegant splashes of silver and gold. The resulting look is festive and celebratory, but not over-the-top Christmasy. “Santa won’t walk into our home and mistake it for the North Pole,” says Sarah. “But he’ll know he’s in the right place when he sees Tate, his small face aglow, gazing at the Christmas tree’s twinkling lights.”
