“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.”
