Take A Look At Our Decorators From The 2015 St. Andrew’s Christmas House Tour

The Trafalgar HomeDecorated By: Michele Hatziioannou & The House Warmings Team

In 1995, Michele and her husband Leon opened a small home decor shop called “House Warmings” in the Olde Oakville Town Square. Two years later when a larger space became available on Lakeshore, Michele jumped at the opportunity and moved her shop to the main street. Michele and her husband now own two stores in Oakville. As House Warmings grew, Michele’s talents continued to shine. She has been featured in Style at Home, Good Life Magazine, The Marilyn Denis show and Cityline. With it’s eclectic taste, House Warmings has something for everyone. “I decorate with my heart” Michele says in a Style at Home article, “If I see something that speaks to me, I make it work no matter what”. It is this passion that has made Michele and House Warmings a success.

The King Street Home
Decorated By: Stephanie McPherson, Shorehouse Interior Design
I alway say………”I love All things Beautiful”…….
My passion is food, although interior design is a close second. I have had professional training in the culinary field, and pursued my interest in design alongside this pastime. I have taught cooking classes from my home, as well as being a partner in a Catering business. I feel that the two are closely related, as attention to detail with an added flair can compliment the process.
I have worked with the St. Andrew’s Christmas House Tour, putting my personal touch in some of their homes as well as my own homes, which have been featured on the tour over the past several years. I would say my motto is “Less is More…….”, as it allows the fine details of the beauty in a home to stand out. For the same reasons, I also feel comfortable with neutral backgrounds throughout the house, it works for me and I feel at ease when things are somewhat “calm and inviting”.
Christmas is such a special time for me, I have a large family who gather at our home for the many festivities including a gingerbread house decorating night in which the children are involved, this has become a memorable tradition. Tradition plays an important role in my life and I’m honoured to be part of the St. Andrew’s Christmas House Tour once again.
