Once again the holiday season is in full swing, and as usual we all want to surround ourselves in festive cheer. Whether you keep it neutral, pared-down, or amped-up, you are likely looking for sources of inspiration everywhere. Here at InStyle Flooring and Designs our clients, friends and colleagues are always asking up the same thing. What are some easy ways for me to spruce up my space during the holidays?
While some trends come and go, from monochromatic trees to big red bows, certain styles remain in fashion over the years. So, to help you get started this holiday season here are 5 of the easiest ways to spruce it up your home during this holiday season.
Weave in a Lot of Less Traditional Colors
Some people find it difficult to decorate in such a limited color palette. This year we encourage you to weave less traditional colors than red, green and white into your holiday decor. Forgetting the old rule can really help to pull out the other colors in your home decor design, and make it less challenging to incorporate your festive holiday design into your everyday style.
Bring cheer into your sleep chamber
An easy place to add some festive decor is in your bedroom. Understated garland or elegant decor can creep into the room you sleep, without feeling overwhelming. Add a basket of pine cones (the cinnamon and clove ones add a bonus holiday aroma) or a small tree to your bedroom and find the holiday cheer in your dreams.
Go rustic with classic, minimalist style
Creating that holiday mood is simple with a few well placed classic pieces. Rustic is always a great way to keep your design simple and minimize decor. Without the commitment of full blown decorations you can still create that feeling of Home for the Holidays.
Add a holiday accent to surrounding furnishings
Adding a single holiday accent can really spruce up your holiday decor, with the greatest of ease. Add a stuffed snowman or reindeer, or accent pillow to keep it soft. Sturdier trees and pine cones add texture. Find little accents to pull your holiday style together this season.
Don’t underestimate a simple throw
A variety of plaids and other patterns somehow bring out a festive flare during this season. Pull out a comfy old throw and incorporate your couch or favorite chair into the holiday spirit. You’ll be surprised how easily they can transform the mood in a flash.
Wreaths, wreaths, and more wreaths
What we love about them is that they can be placed virtually anywhere, and with a pattern for all occasions the holiday wreath is one of the simplest ways to spruce up your decor and inject holiday spirit.
