It's hard to believe it, but Christmas is only two weeks away! Even if your family doesn't celebrate Christmas, you still may want your home to be decorated for the another holiday you celebrate. Decorating can be an enjoyable task, but with all the other preparations that go into the holidays, it might be helpful to gather some quick ideas before you get going. Many homeowners have started or have already finished with their holiday decorating. Here's a few ideas on some additional touches you can add, or be inspired by. Be sure to checkout our new Pinterest board on how to decorate your home for the holidays for more ideas!
Choose a single color palette.
It's easy to get wrapped up in the colorful decorations that the holiday season brings. You may be drawn to reds, golds, blues, silvers, or a mixture of the sort. Our expert designers recommend choosing two to three colors to decorate your home in. Trying to tie in too many different colors can be distracting and overwhelming to the eye. Keep it simple by selecting a few colors you like best and finding coordinating accessories to go along with it.

Let it glow.
A beautiful and simple way to light up your home during the holidays is with candles. Of course, you'll want to adhere to safety precautions, but creating candle displays throughout your home will surely win over all of your holidays guests. Not only are candles visually appealing, but choosing holiday scented candles will add an additional element of holiday cheer throughout your home.

Add some natural touches.
Save money on decorations and add a rustic feel with decorations straight from nature. You can find items like pine cones, birch branches, berries, and more that cost nothing and look beautiful when tied together properly. Whether you create a banister decoration, table centerpiece, wreath for your door, or another idea entirely, adding in a natural element will keep your home looking festive.
