Gifts They’ll Love
The Christmas holiday is one of our favourite times of the year. We make a point to ensure the whole Scott family gets together no matter where we are or what we're up to. And if you're anything like us, the holiday is all about giving, not receiving. So if you need a little inspiration for what to give this year, here is a wish list of gifts and suggestions to help warm up any home. There’s something for your favourite homeowner here, and maybe something for yourself, too!
Deck the designer hall
If you know someone who fears the thought of renovating and designing their home, consider giving them a gift certificate for a designer home consultation. This could be that little bit of inspiration they need.
Nothing puts you in the holiday spirit like a little colour! And a few cans of paint won’t cost much. Many paint retailers have soft ware that can show your room with several different colour palettes. It’s an easy and inexpensive way to dramatically improve the look of your home and brighten up your space in the dark, indoor months.
Hang the stocking with care
A fireplace can give your home a more comfortable feel . To save time and a lot of money, consider an electric insert. If built-in correctly, an electric insert can look identical to a gas fireplace, and can be placed on any wall.
Trim the tree
A growing trend is using distressed or upcycled wood for features in your home. Whether it’s a beach wood picture frame or a repurposed barn door, there are great rustic wood features you can incorporate into your design to give it a comfy, contemporary look.
