Must-Have Holiday Home Decor Ideas
The Tree Is Key
The Christmas tree is a long-standing centerpiece of the holiday season. If you’re looking for some new ways to trim the tree, try these ideas:
- Neutral – Use natural fabrics and neutral beige colors to give a clean, understated look to your tree
- Metallic – Shimmering colors such as bronze, gold, and silver always make your firs fabulous! Add pops of deep red or hunter green for seasonal flair.
- Bright – Forego traditional colors and decorate with unique ornaments in hot pink, fluorescent purple, bright blue, and neon green. It’s sure to get a big WOW!
- Geometric – Add some lines (and definition) to your design with squares, diamonds, stars, and other shapes.
Decorating That Makes Scents
Make sure your home smells fantastic during the season. Scents like pine, cinnamon, apple, gingerbread, or vanilla immediately evoke nostalgic memories. Use wax warmers, (properly supervised) candles, wall oil warmers, or scented pinecones to add immediate holiday cheer to your home.
Decking your halls means decking out your front door. Don’t forget to add a welcoming seasonal wreath to greet guests. Whether you opt for the traditional evergreen boughs wrapped in a holiday bow or you can choose decor that matches your Christmas tree, don’t skip out on this Christmas decor tradition.
Mix Old & New
The holidays are about tradition and family. If you want to try a new theme, but can’t quite convince yourself to give up old memories, start small! Choose a smaller tree to decorate with your new idea first. You can also create a tabletop space to showcase some of your favorite older items that deserve a place in the spotlight.
Using natural elements such as evergreen branches, whole spices, pinecones, and fabrics (like burlap) can add a homey, comforting decoration trend. Additionally, many of these items are appropriate to use after Christmas to make your home festive in the winter months.
