The holiday season is here and as we prepare for the festivities, home decor is a major piece to the puzzle.
If you’re feeling uninspired or need a refresh, keep reading as we share some simple ideas to breathe new life into your holiday decor.
Before you get out your first piece of garland, go around your house, clear off every surface, and give it a deep clean. The next step is to look through all of your decorations and determine which pieces you’d like to keep and the ones you’ll do without this year. Doing this will help you declutter, assess where you’ll place your decorations, and get an inventory of whether you need to buy a few more pieces or not.
Plus, there’s nothing quite like a clean home, enjoy it!
We’ve talked about the idea of adhering to a color scheme before as color plays an important role in the overall look and feel of a room. This same “rule” applies to holiday decorating.
Commit to a color pattern that compliments your home’s style and carry it throughout.
Those colors will make your design flow from room to room.
Relying on repetition is an easy way to dress up your space. For instance, let’s say you have custom wood shutters in your living area. Of course, they’re beautiful on their own, but what if you hung luscious evergreen wreaths from each? Not only would this add a layer of depth to your design, it would also create a cohesive and unified feel to combat the feelings of overwhelm we often experience from holiday decorating.
The main entryway, living room, and dining room are obvious areas to decorate for the holidays but don’t forget about other spaces in your home such as the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms.
Every room creates a unique opportunity to add some festive flair. In your bedroom, outline a floor-length mirror with greenery or add a holiday-inspired throw blanket and pillows on your bed. In your bathroom, add a bit of greenery in an unused corner, and in your kitchen, display beautiful red bows on the front of your cabinets.
While there are more holiday interior design tips than we can count, we saved the most important tip for last and that’s to have fun! When decorating for the holiday season, get creative and experiment. If you enjoy maximalist design, go all out! But, if you’re more about subtle nods to the holidays with a minimalist approach, that works too. There’s no “right” or “wrong” way to decorate your home. As long as you stay true to your style and are happy with the results, nothing else matters. Enjoy!
