H&H‘s Joel Bray and Reiko Caron transform the Garden Suite at Toronto’s Shangri-La Hotel into a festive and cozy space for the holidays. Get their expert tips on how to add sophisticated holiday style to your home.

To set the tone, Joel and Reiko added a faux Christmas tree to the living room. Next, they hung a garland with stockings under the TV in lieu of a fireplace. A large, wintry piece of art and metallic, cable knit and velvet pillows bring warmth to the sofa area. In the bedroom, pillows and a faux fur throw add texture, while a wreath above the bed brings seasonal charm. A line of mini potted trees along the windowsill in the bathroom offer a hint of cheer, and mercury glass accessories dress up the vanity. Watch how these details transform the space into the ultimate Winter Wonderland Suite, ideal for celebrating the holidays.

Win a winter wonderland stay in this suite at the Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto! To enter, follow @ShangriLaTO on Instagram and post of a photo of a winter must-have, tagged with @ShangriLaTO and #oasisatshangrila

Wow you both did an amazing job elevating the feel of that suite for the Holidays. It was sophisticated to be begin, but now it it is both festive and intimate. I think it was great that you made subtle changes to the suite that views can be replicated in your viewer's spaces… Now everyone can have a little taste of Shangri-La for the holidays!

Love how festive yet chic this looks. Not a fan of kitschy, over the top holiday decor.

That rug really ties the room together.

jasio kowalski says:

2:32 assuming you wanted to sit on the sofa with your wife, would you have to move all the excess pillows away? This is just useless and makes your life harder.
