The Homes for the Holidays tour, 2016, in support of Hospice Care Ottawa brought approximately 1500 tour goers into eight majestically decorated homes and kicked off holiday shopping with a holiday pop-up shop at the home of the Irish Ambassador to Canada. The homes were scattered from Wellington Village, Rockcliffe, Dows Lake, Mooneys Bay, Manotick and Greely to cover a wide spectrum of architectural and décor styles.

Funds raised support Hospice Care Ottawa to provide dignified end of life care. Local designers and florists ensured that visitors were wowed as they entered the doors of each home. Volunteers worked tirelessly to make this year’s event memorable for visitors and effortless for the homeowners.

This year’s tour revealed that Christmas décor comes in all colours! Hot pink was on trend in two homes and lemon yellow offered a new spin on a traditional holiday colour scheme. Deep blue and green combined to honour the Peacock, the National bird of India, in an Indian family’s splendid home on the Rideau River.

As the magazine sponsor for The Homes for the Holidays tour, Ottawa At Home is pleased to showcase the work of some of Ottawa’s most talented designers, decorators and florists.
