Deck Your Halls this Holiday Season

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Nothing sets the tone for the holidays better than the perfect décor.  So many memories are made and feelings of nostalgia are stirred every year as we deck our halls.  Here are some tips for making sure your home is holiday ready!

Traditions are great, but you don’t always have to stick to them when it comes to décor. Don’t decorate your home based on the holiday; decorate for the holiday based on your home. If you have a contemporary or modern home with neutral colors, perhaps silver and gold would be a good choice.  Or go with a rustic theme and stick with earthy colors.  You can go neutral and stick to white lights with gold and white ornaments or traditional red and green, adding in some plaid details.  Or, maybe steer away from the norm altogether and go with jewel tones in pinks and blues.  Anything goes!

Have a repurposed holiday!  Instead of hauling out new decorations for each holiday or season, repurpose key items from your house or another holiday. The decorative vases you had filled with pinecones or mini pumpkins for fall? Fill them with red and green ornament balls or silver and blue snowflakes depending on your color scheme.  Why not construct a decorative tree made of old books or a reclaimed piece of wood for a warm and rustic feel?  The possibilities are endless and you’ll feel good about breathing life into old items that you may have otherwise overlooked.

Think about your curb appeal.  Who doesn’t love riding around and looking at festive holiday lights and decorations?!  We can’t overlook the outside décor as it plays a big part in setting the tone and style.  A wreath hung on the front door is a perfect focal point for the entryway and there are so many options to choose from.  Garland and red ribbon are a classic and simple way to add a festive feel to the exterior of your home.  Simple and traditional outside décor makes for the perfect holiday feeling!
