It’s the most wonderful time of the year! That’s right, the holidays are right around the corner!
While the holidays may look very different for your family this year, you still want to get into the spirit of things, and you want your home to have the perfect Christmas feel. You can channel the warm and festive home vibes through your holiday decor.
We thought we would share some of our best home decor tips for the holiday season!
Pick Your Color Palette
To get that perfect holiday home vibe, try not to mix too many colors together. No matter what type of look or feel you’re going for, you should always have a color palette in mind. Some may prefer the classic green and red colors and some may be a little more modern and pick neutral colors like white and gold. Whatever you decide, make that color palette your main theme throughout your home.
Pops of Plaid
Who doesn’t love a little pop of plaid for the holiday season? We know we do!
This is a great way to boost the festivity and coziness by adding an assortment of stockings in a plaid pattern. You can keep the plaid all the same, or you can switch up the patterns. Either way, we love this idea!
Festive Throw Pillows and Blankets
One of the best things about this season is being able to curl up and watch the classics with your family. Watching these movies will be more enjoyable with a cozy holiday themed throw pillow and blanket. Grab a white fluffy blanket with a red throw pillow tied up like a present and garnished with a bit of greenery.
Add Christmas Cheer to Your Shelves
Just because it is the holiday season, doesn’t mean you have to take your regular decor down. Get creative and wrap your books with some leftover wrapping paper. Add a bow to any figurines or even add some evergreen to pull in that neutral touch.
Turn Your Coffee Station to a Hot Cocoa Bar
Give your traditional coffee station a holiday makeover and turn it to a hot cocoa bar! Get some small festive trees, add your seasonal mugs and have your seasonal beverages. Our personal favorite is just the classic hot cocoa, which is so easy to achieve, especially with this idea. It’s also a great way to get the kiddos excited and something for you to both do together!
Line the Staircase
This idea is really great for the nighttime! Add battery-operated candles on each staircase to light the way to make sure Santa Claus can find his way.
