Christmas Decorating at Moving Designz Home & Cottage

With the Christmas holidays soon approaching we have been busy getting the store ready with lots of gifts ideas, holiday trimmings and new furniture styles. As well, we have been busy completing finishing 4 large design and decorating projects just in time for Christmas. I hope to have a sneak peak ready for the next post.

The colours we chose for the store this year are traditional reds and fresh springy greens, rich shades of chocolate, silver and blue.

Our bedroom section is decorated in cheery reds. We made the bed up in a white quilted coverlette set and accented it with our rich red velvet vintage style quilt and shams. Perfectly cozy!

Penguins in silver tones and clear vases full of festive balls. All Christmas ornaments are on sale at 15% off the regular prices.

Shown here is one of our sofa styles upholstered in a mid tone natural.

A close up. Since this sofa is neutral coloured it can be accented with just about any colour and combination of toss cushions throughout the year. Tip: When choosing sofa fabric go for something neutral.

Our floor model sectional is also upholstered in the same neutral fabric yet this time accented with blue and chocolate toss cushions. The Barcelona glass topped table is new to the store and features an X style chrome base and a thick glass top.

I love this lamp.

This small scale chair is perfect for tight spaces measuring at just 32" deep.

Another new chair style upholstered in a pretty black and white damask pattern.
We've chosen to have this chair upholstered in a soft menswear tweed. With its clean lines, low arms and tight back this chair a classic choice in any room.

Our pretty Christmas tree is adorned with lots of cute fuzzy birds.

We've filled this table with $10 and $20 gift baskets for that last minute Christmas or hostess gift.
Sparkly silver starfish and pretty scented candles already gift boxed. Perfect stocking stuffers.

More pretty gift and Christmas ideas. These little penguins are absolutely adorable!

I love keeping Christmas decorating simple. One of my favorite ideas is filling bowls and glass vessels with flowers, balls, pine cones, candles, greenery or simple ornaments. So simple, so pretty!

Our kitchen section is filled with simple whiteware and beautifully patterned dinnerware perfect for entertaining or gift giving.

Our ladies personal accessory section is filled with lovely purses, wraps, hats, scarves, pashminas, jewellry and unique roll onboard travel bags.
Still can't decide what to give? Don't forget we offer gift certificates in any denomination and beautiful gift baskets.
Thanks for reading. Have a great week!

Beautiful Inspirational Rooms

In addition to writing this blog I also have a Moving Designz Facebook Group. Every few days I post an image... called ... Today I love. If you have a Facebook account you can easily join my group. Just type Moving Designz in the search bar to find the site and join my group.

For this week's post I thought I would post images I have on my Facebook Group. It's called the easy button since I'm very with design projects and remerchandising the store for Christmas. Almost all of the buys from my summer trip to Toronto have now arrived at the store and we'll be ready with beautiful Christmas gifts, displays and ornaments in the next few days. So many beautiful things. Next week I will post images of the Moving Designz new interior look and our Winter line up of new products for your home.
All of these rooms inspire me.
