Holiday Home Décor

The holiday season is filled with different activities that only come around once a year. Decorating for the holidays should be fun, not a chore. Keep the following tips in mind when decorating your home for the festive season!

1. Don’t procrastinate: The longer you wait to get your decorating complete, the less time you have to enjoy your hard work. Don’t spend more time planning and shopping than you actually do decorating. An abundance of planning and shopping makes you tired before the real work even starts. Don’t over think your decorating plan, this type of decorating is temporary. Make your life easy, don’t take it too seriously and have fun! Make putting up and taking down holiday decorations a family affair tradition. Things will get done faster. When families accomplish tasks as a team, it brings them closer.

2. Focus: When decorating, start with a focal point. Rooms naturally have an area that is seen first by viewers due to architectural details and their locations. Larger rooms can have more than one focal point. When you begin, start with decorating the room’s natural focal point (for example: the fire place, windows, and built in bookcases with decorative moldings). Keep in mind that the whole room does not need to be decorated. Focus on what people notice and spend your time on those areas. Don’t create too much work for yourself!

3. Get inspired: Holiday color schemes are not restricted to the typical red, white and green. Use creative color schemes using bright colors in combination with a metallic color such as silver and/or gold (for example: green, purple and silver). Fresh new looks are exciting and notice-worthy. Have some fun and take some risks!

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!
