Carolann Mackie and her team at The Frugal Decorator transformed a Carriage Crossing home for the annual HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre Holiday Tour of Homes. They created a space with many great examples of how every homeowner can add festive cheer around a home.

In the kitchen, transoms and stained glass panels in the cabinetry were created by Kara’s Stained Glass. They add beauty to the space year-round.
 
Carolann advises having fun with holiday decorating. “Be playful yet classic! We had the privilege of working with these homeowners to pick all of their surface decisions, decorative palette and furnishings when they were building with Heisler Homes,” she says. “The clients are fun, youthful and high energy people with busy lifestyles. It was important for the surfaces to be activity proof! The décor in this home reflects their personalities and we developed the holiday theme to reflect this too.” No matter the size or style of your home, Carolann has a few tips to up your game this holiday season and make your décor the best it has ever been. Here are her top tips for decorating for the holidays.
