Your Complete Guide to Decorating Your Home for the Holidays

Uncategorized l November 18, 2020

While COVID-19 may have put a stop to our normal routines, the holiday season certainly isn’t canceled this year. With so many holidays right around the corner, we’re getting a head start on our decor for the upcoming months, and many others are similarly planning ahead.

Whether you’re planning a virtual get-together or you’re just feeling a little festive, these tips can get you started on decorating your home for the holiday season.

Start with A Theme

If you don’t have a personal interior designer on call (or spend hours browsing decor sites), creating a unified decoration plan for your home may seem like a daunting task. But with some simple preparatory steps, the right combination of decor can create a look that says luxury. Opt for natural elements like wood accents and fresh foliage, or try a more modern feel with neutral decor and simple figurine accents. Make a vision board or do a quick Pinterest search for

Choose A Color Scheme

Create some holiday cheer in your home by joining this year’s technicolor trend. Consider choosing a color scheme of bright, vivid colors that will brighten up a room and foster joy in your space. Alternatively, opt for a more traditional feel through the use of fall seasonal hues, like earthy tones and indigo blues. Whatever you choose, your color scheme should pair well with your chosen theme.

Make It Sustainable

Lean into the holiday season by creating decorations by hand. DIY projects can be as simple as stepping outside into the fresh air and collecting some pinecones, evergreens and other foliage for a centerpiece. Paint ornaments with0 friends and family — virtually, if need be! There are also virtual wreath-making classes popping up all over, so you can have fun even from home. They’ll send you the supplies, and you follow along live! If you feel like taking on a challenge, try your hand at a new hobby like knitting to create one-of-a-kind decorations that are totally unique to your tastes.

Include in Every Room

Implement cozy decoration trends into every room of your home — after all, in a season with fewer guests, your decorations are all the more for you to enjoy! Update your bedroom with fluffy velvet pillows, faux fur rugs and textured throws. Bring in small accents like candles and metal patterned hanging mirrors. These pieces will last throughout the wintry season, and they’ll be easy to swap out once spring rolls around.

With a fresh and festive home, your space will be filled with holiday cheer all season long.
