Are you ready to deck the halls? With the hustle and bustle of the busy season it can be hard to be on top of your holiday decorating. Keep your home décor dapper throughout the holiday season with our design tips and tricks! We give you some ideas on how to tastefully decorate and transition your holiday decor from Thanksgiving all the way to Christmas or Hanukkah.
1. Neutral Textures
Focus on neutral textures. Layering faux fur pillows and throws are the easiest way to get that cozy, holiday feel without committing to a holiday theme. Colors that are festive without being exclusive to one season are a great way to ensure your decorating accents remain transitional from month to month.
2. Incorporate Natural Greenery
Turn to the outdoors for some natural greenery during the holidays! It adds warmth and texture to almost any spot in the home from Thanksgiving until the end of the year. Some of the most beautiful tablescapes have natural greenery incorporated in them as it pairs perfectly with pumpkins, candles, berries and any other holiday décor.
One of the easiest ways to add timeless cheer during the holiday season is to take what you’ve collected over the years and use it in a unique way. As an example, group all your favorite holiday figures in a spot such as a mantle or console table. This creates an instant focal point and a cleaner way of decorating rather than having all your décor placed sporadically throughout your home. The grouping of nutcrackers below is a great example of how to showcase your special holiday items the right way.
Add holiday shimmer to your home with metallic! Metallics are great all year, but around the holidays they feel special and festive without getting stuck to a specific holiday theme. You can incorporate metallics into Thanksgiving, Hanukkah or Christmas for an elegant feel. They are versatile and can be used for any holiday – try using silvers, golds or coppers in your holiday décor.
5. Don’t Over Decorate
It’s important to decorate your home for the holidays while still staying true to your own style! There’s no need to clutter your entire space with holiday décor. If you add in small accents, you can still get some holiday cheer without it looking too gaudy. Below is an example of using small accents in a living room: green wreaths and ribbon on the barn doors, textured pillows & a plaid throw.
