Deck the Halls with These Unique Holiday Decor Ideas
There’s no place like home for the holidays, and now is the perfect time to start thinking about how you can make your home merry and bright!
Decorating for the holidays goes beyond outdoor lights and indoor trees. Think about how you would like to set the mood of your living spaces. Do you go all out or prefer to add just a few accents? No matter what your personal decorating style, here are a few Christmas decorating ideas to get you started.
Change Up Your Color Palette
Holiday decorating can be as easy as shifting your room’s color palette with festive-colored accents. Try reds and white, or blues and silvers. A red and white snowflake quilt will turn any bedroom into a Christmas oasis. A richly-colored area rug in your foyer or under your living room’s coffee table will add a subtle accent, as will a scattering of pillows.
Light the Way
Lighting is such an important part of holiday décor. We immediately think of twinkling lights and candles in windows when we think of the holidays. Add some of that warm ambiance that only candles can bring by hanging lanterns.
Dashing Through the Living Room
Place your regular coffee table in storage and replace it with a distinctive sleigh coffee table to add festive ambiance to the center of your seating area.
Invite a Once-A-Year Visitor
Face it. There’s only one time a year that jolly old St Nick, a set of Victorian carolers or a trio of snowmen seem to fit in so perfectly in your home. Whether it has nostalgic appeal or just seems to set the right mood, inspirational accents can add just the right touch.
Make Every Table Special
Often, we think centerpieces only belong at the center of a family feast, but holiday centerpieces can grace more than just your dining room table. Think about entryways, side tables and window ledges.
