8 Decorating Tips for The Holidays

8 Decorating Tips For The Holidays

1. Add some seasonal flair

Decorating for the holidays doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming. To give any room some holiday cheer, focus on the details, like a colorful new throw or decorative pillows.

2. Take advantage of the sales

Check thrift stores and holiday sales for a few new accent pieces. We have a variety of furniture and decor that could brighten any room. Just one new item such as a lamp or a slipcover on a sofa can add a more festive look.

3. Recycle old items around the house

There’s no need to spend a lot of money on new stuff. Use outdoor items like branches and pinecones for a rustic holiday look you can create free of charge. Candy canes hung with red or green ribbon can add a playful touch, and can be stuffed into stockings later.

4. Get holiday crafting with family

It can be fun to spend a little time with loved ones making holiday crafts. There is a wealth of little projects to be found online, from holiday shapes cut out of feeling to pinecone reindeer. Homemade ornaments can also be saved and used for years to come.

5. Utilize unused spaces in new ways

Too warm to use the fireplace this season? Get everyone to help fill it with poinsettias and frame it with holly or garland. Find a less-utilized space around the room such as a cabinet top or corner to add homemade decor to as well. You can even wrap a light fixture or mirror with garland or hang sprigs of pine around the clock.

6. Be creative with the tree

You don’t have to have a traditional tree. If your space is too small for a classic Christmas tree, you can still use the space you do have to create a holiday focal point for the room. For example, instead of a pine tree, use a cactus wrapped in garland to add a fun Southwestern feel to your seasonal décor.

7. Embrace simplicity this season

Less is more! Don’t worry about decorating every inch of the room. A few standout items in key places can do all the work of brightening and enlivening your space. For example, use a wood table to display holiday candles that give off the scent of the season.

8. Let your personal style shine

Make your living space feel like home. Whether your unique style is more natural and outdoorsy or clean and minimal, use colors and items that speak to you and your family, even if they don’t fit in with the traditional items you see in stores during the holiday season.
