How to Decorate Your Home for the Holidays

By fiderioandsons Dec 11, 2013

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.

Get creative.
Decorating is a great opportunity to get crafty and creative in your home.  The holidays can be particularly draining on your wallet, so coming up with  unique decorating ideas that can help you save money is a win-win. Take a look around your home for items that could potentially be used for  decorations. You’ll probably be surprised at what you can come up with  without having to run to the store to buy anything.

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.
