Every year, our 14,000 square-foot House is custom-designed anew by a changing, dedicated volunteer team of professional interior designers. The result this year is a theme of “family traditions” as many of our designers have incorporated their own cherished family heirlooms into our three floors of Victorian mansion now aglow with Christmas trees, decorated hearths, draped oak bannisters, real greenery, natural fibres, fruit, lights, stained-glass windows, furniture, candles and decorative items. If Christmas is a time for family, our designers have made it personal. Come see what they’ve done!

This year’s design professionals are Selina Austin, Ana Cummings, Rebekah McEwan Swantje Macke-Monteiro, Lea Romanowski, Alison Rose, Beatta Ryback and Chantel C Snyder.
