Let's get real for a second: if you had the chance to peek inside the homes of Canada's most fashionable set, would you?
Of course you would, especially at this time of year. All the festive décor, the fun table settings, the inspirational seasonal style choices — it's when couples and their families have the most design fun.
So we have to give it up for the folks at Le Clos Jordanne (one of the top wine labels in the country). They wrangled a few of Canada's most famous faces together at Hotel Le Germain, Maple Leaf Square, and gave us an exclusive look at what haute holiday décor looks like.
There are the Beckerman sisters who opt for eclectic ornaments, and Ben and Jessica Mulroney whose design tastes are a bit more subdued. And of course there are the traditionalists — found in Le Clos Jordanne Winemakers Sébastien and Bérangèr Jacquey — and those who love minimalist chic (brought to you by CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon and wife Suzanne). Each scene has even been paired with a matched-to-the-aesthetics bottle of wine.
