This is not a story about a poorly decorated home in need of a makeover and a splash of holiday cheer. Owners Nadia Bizzotto and David Youngson are themselves in the design business (she founded the handbag company Two Loops; he’s a sales agent for the likes of Kikkerland), and their two-year-old house in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley is cleanly modern—even their four whippets and two cats hew to the prevailing earth-tones palette.
But when their friend Paige Russell, a ceramist, asked to help deck their place for the season, they were thrilled. “We love Paige’s homemade sensibility,” Nadia says. “She shows us how warmth can still be modern,” adds David. Just call Paige their holiday fairy.
