December is here and it’s time to trim the tree, light the Menorah, and host family and friends. Here are our top 5 tips for holiday decorating to incorporate into your home.
1. Pick a Color Scheme
When envisioning a seamless holiday look, cohesion is key. Pick a color scheme you want to work with at the beginning of your process and stick to it. Pro-tip: It doesn’t have to be a ‘traditional’ holiday color! Play around with colors that you love.
2. Utilize Your Existing Decor
You don’t have to completely reinvent your home during the holiday season. When you work with and around existing pieces, it simplifies the process and adds a familiar and comforting element to your holiday decor.
3. Incorporate Height and Dimension
Consider the height of decorations as you group items together. Using both taller and shorter elements creates dimension, adds interest, and helps lead the eye through a scene.
4. Add Greenery
Fresh – and faux! – greenery evokes many traditional holiday elements like Christmas trees, mistletoe, and poinsettias. Bringing fresh greenery to your decor and table spread adds texture and livens up the atmosphere.
5. Make It Personal
Personalized elements make your decor feel extra special. Achieve the look with something as simple as adding everyone’s names to their stockings or level up with monogrammed napkins for the table.
