Ask Arete Culture: Decorating for the holidays and beyond
Arete Culture’s founder and creative director CAROLINE CHIN GEYLER shares her professional tips on home design and décor.
#1 Hurricane lanterns filled with seasonal décor and fairy lights are key to entryway or table set-ups. Outside of the season, replace the lights with standard candles for everyday elegance.
#2 Anything with a metallic or reflective finish is holiday appropriate. Decorating a buffet table? Spray-paint a large foraged branch for a statement centrepiece. Or use votive candles in a metallic vessel, which work seamlessly year-round too!
#3 White or silver faux flowers create an ethereal, winter wonderland look without relying on the usual poinsettia or fir. Smaller petals or coniferous looking leaves feel airy but festive and can also be repurposed throughout the year.
