A couple of years ago,  Jacqueline Martin opened her house for the holiday tour.

The effervescent retired teacher and librarian loves to entertain. She loves beautiful things. She loves to decorate. During the holidays, she indulges.

In late fall, Martin puts away her “everyday” things and brings out her large collection of holiday accents and decorations and plays dress up. Out come the angels, the Santas, the Nutcrackers and the stockings. It is a good thing, she has a large house with lots of rooms.

Last year, Martin opened her home, located on one of the city’s prettiest streets near Bell Park, for the Alexander Ramsay Chapter of the IODE annual Holly and Ivy Tour.

With the help of Lynzy and Lynn Boeswald of Apple Cart Collectables, Martin turned her home from top to bottom, inside and out into a Holiday House. The Clauses and an elf played hosts and poured apple cider for guests.

Martin has long been a fan of Apple Cart Collectables. The shop used to be located on Ontario St. and moved into a heritage home on Larch St a few years ago.

“Lynzy was one of my former students and very creative,” Martin says. “It was her idea to create a red feather tree.”

In other rooms of the home, Martin and her decorators used contemporary Christmas colours such as mauve, pink and aqua to create fairytale effects.

In the antique white living room, shades of vintage mauve and dusty purples were used to complement the pretty-in-pink tree. In the all-white master bathroom, silver accents are paired with a touch of red for a touch of class.
