Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Holidays

Decorating your home for Easter is fun and fresh. Spring has just begun and winter is officially over! Celebrate the Easter holiday and the season change with a slightly different fashion this year by getting a little closer to nature.  Even if displaying Easter eggs and bunnies doesn’t fit your personality, you can still spruce up your home with seasoned sophistication!

Pastels are the choice color palettes for this time of year. Use pretty pastel accent pillows on your sofa and bedding. These are a great addition to your usual color scheme and are easily stored after the holiday is over.

Buy a few festive dishes in pastel color pallets. These will make your table setting look fresh and clean with a dash of fun. Add some cloth napkins in brighter color selections.

Fill clear containers with colorful Easter candy. Add shredded green paper to the bottom of the containers, to add another breath of spring to the space. Place these containers on your dining table, kitchen counter top and on the cocktail table. These little accents are pretty to look at and welcome visitors with a sweet.

“Spring” for a naturalistic wreath for your door. Finish off with a pretty pastel bow and faux Robin’s eggs (light blue eggs with brown speckles.

Tulips are the perfect flower for this time of year. Used in flower arrangements, they tend to last longer than other flowers. When you are shopping for tulips make sure and get a bouquet composed of closed flowers. They look pretty when they are closed and continue to look good as they bloom.

Enjoy brightening your home and welcoming the seasonal change!

Home Décor Ideas For Christmas

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Christmas

We are so excited for the holidays and Christmas will soon be here! Decorating for the holiday season doesn’t have to break the bank. Follow these guidelines to create your own Christmas Wonderland:

1. Theme it right: Choosing a theme will head you into the right direction, regarding where to start. Themes can be based on the geography where you live and/or special interests.

2. Color coordinate: Selecting your color theme can easily stem from your special interest theme or simply coordinate to enhance your theme. Choose two to three main colors to work with. Color combinations that have a main vibrant color and one or two supporting colors really make your theme unique and well put together. Choose a primary or secondary color for your main color. Gold, Silver, and white make for great supporting colors that enhance your main vibrant color.

3. Some DIY: You can cut costs by making some DIY decorations. Popcorn can easily be strung to make great garland. If you buy a real tree; save the clippings from the bottom to make your wreath out of. Pretty ribbon can be intertwined into your wreath, tree and garland. Pack it away neatly so it can be used for year after year (until it wears out).

4. No mantle? No problem. You can decorate your entertainment unit like you would a mantel. Add garland, lights and even hang your stockings on it. Feel free to decorate doorways as well!

Get creative. Get innovative. Anything that shimmers or glistens can be incorporated into Christmas decorations! Glass and crystal items are complimented when dispersed on a mantel or used in a centerpiece surrounded by garland, ribbon and lit by a strand of lights!
