The Style Calling team recently attended one of our favourite events of they year: Indigo’s Holiday Preview. Although Christmas is still a few months away, we found ourselves feeling quite festive. While we’re still enjoying the last days of summer, this preview left us craving for the coziness of fall.
The event was held at the beautiful Rosewood Georgia Hotel. To set the holiday mood, we were greeted with bourbon and spiced apple syrup cocktails. Delicious sweet treats and holiday favourites from Butter Baked Goods were available to sample. Trust us, you’re going to be addicted to the vanilla shortbread cookies and the peppermint marshmallows long before December hits.
Their Holiday collection is entitled ‘Joyful Traditions’ and is split into two design collections: Cozy Cabin and City Chic. The Cozy Cabin scheme is comprised of rustic elements, warm plaids, Canadiana iconography and forest motifs. The City Chic scheme presented icy neutrals, faux furs and beautiful leathers.
Each room was decked out with their latest festive merchandise. The lounge area focused on the Cozy Cabin themed merchandise. Soft plaid throws and rustic throw pillows adorned the couch, evoking images of Christmas at the cabin. The oh so chic tableware was the next stop. From the gold-rimmed stemware, to the beaded snowflake napkin holders, the table was filled with some of our favourite products that are perfect for those holiday soirees. Two of our absolute must-haves are the gold cursive monogrammed mugs, and the gilded graphic lowball glasses.
The bedroom showcased items from the City Chic scheme. The icy pinks, shimmering whites and silver tones instantly transformed the room into a winter wonderland. The luxe faux fur stockings and cozy cable knit pieces are sure to become instant holiday favourites. The etched honeycomb hurricanes and beautiful Christmas tree decorations will instantly add some glamour to your holiday decor. We absolutely adore the beautiful embossed travel pieces! The elegant pouches, passport holders, luggage tags, and manicure sets are essentials for your winter travels.
A new product to hit the shelves this season is Muse, the brain sensing headband. Muse is a brain fitness tool that helps you learn to manage stress, increase calmness and focus (in only 3 minutes a day!) In such a busy world, this meditation device helps to leave you feeling calmer and more rejuvenated. Muse will be in store this September.
