Spruce Up Your Home This Season with Our Holiday Decor Ideas
It’s time to bring out the Christmas tree and holiday decor – if you haven’t already. Tis the season, let’s deck the halls and jingle some bells!
Do you get as excited about the holidays as I do? By now you may be equipped with plenty of decorating ideas from Pinterest and wooed by the current seasonal style trends at your favorite home stores. But just in case you are still on the fence as to which color scheme to go with, I have some ideas for you!
There is something so peaceful and cozy about layering your home in rich textures, soft hues, a little glitz, and organic details. Here are some simple ideas for creating a soft, festive palette with Christmas neutrals.
The fireplace mantel is generally the center of attention during the holidays. From gathering around a warm cozy fire to hanging Christmas stockings, it’s usually THE place to be. Here are some tips to style it out like a pro for all of your holiday festivities.
Start with a focal point. It can be a mirror, a wreath, a wreath on a mirror, or a large piece of artwork.
It’s easy to incorporate year-round decor that works for the holidays. Plus, not to mention, it’s affordable. My motto this year is – keep it simple. So, less is definitely more.
Sprinkle in some ornaments, candles or hurricanes like these from Arhaus and add in metallics and glitter for a little sparkle and shine.
Layering your home with cozy textures is a great way to highlight a neutral palette. Using faux furs, knits, and linen together in one space, like on a comfy sofa or sectional, gives balance, and personality, and screams, “come on in, sit down, stay a while.”
Look how perfect gold, gray, and cream can be together. Throw in a little brown and some yummy texture and you have a palette that is not only holiday-worthy but can seamlessly transition from holiday decor into winter decor.
Greenery is considered a neutral, especially during the holidays. Mixing in soft colors and natural elements with your garland, wreaths, and Christmas trees add a simple touch that is classic and never overdone.
Christmas neutrals also apply to ornaments, DIY projects, and holiday wrapping. Less can be more when crafting and creating swoon-worthy holiday details. When wrapping holiday gifts I like to throw in a sprig of greenery and a cute ornament to add a little something extra and unexpected.
Wreaths, wreaths, wreaths! Magnolia, pine, boxwood – I have a wreath hanging in pretty much every room of my house. My kitchen, living room, entryway, bedroom, you name it. I have an embarrassing collection of wreaths and I’m not embarrassed at all!
Okay, so this holiday season I’m obsessed with several things, but these little felt Christmas trees from McGee & Co. top the list. I can’t wait to get my hands on these!
I love this time of year, there is so much holiday goodness being shared online and I just can’t seem to get enough. Happy decorating!
