Maybe do more than just put up a tree or hang Christmas lights
When Christmas comes to mind, the first few things to come to mind are tree, wreath or Santa Claus. But there are other ways to spruce up your space, whether it’s your own home or a room in your parents house, to make it feel warm, fuzzy and well, Christmas-like. It’s not just for family, friends and other guests to see, but for you to bask in. After all, Christmas is about feeling good and spreading joy. And nothing conjures up those feelings quite like waking up to a beautifully decorated space.
Black, White with Color Accents
Color-averse, looking for pieces that can last even after the holidays? Black and white with punches of color here and there (glossy metals or even red!) might just be the kind of Christmas vibe you want going on at home. Try an all-pinecone wreath dusted with “snow” or black and white throw pillow covers, or wrapping paper.
For that color pop, how about something festive that says you’re serious about design but like to have fun, too?
Merry and Rustic
If you’re looking for something homey, simple and feels a little lived-in, maybe merry and rustic is more your style. Think anything that brings you to a bucolic setting: terra-cotta floors and wares, shabby wood furniture and vintage accent pieces. In Christmas decor terms, a plain but lush wreath, mistletoe sticks and more indoor plants help get the look.
Try these rustic additions for your home:
Less is more and even merrier is a minimalist’s state of mind. Keep it clean and easy on the eyes with minimal decorations against a single colored space. How about a lean tree or wreath instead of the traditional this holiday?
