Don’t let the freezing temperature and the two-toned outdoor palette of the winter season dampen your holidays. You can create a warm and welcoming home where your family and friends can hang out with just a few accents in each room of the house. Re-modeling and refurnishing is not required, a simple change of carpet, curtains and room accents can do the trick.
A Holiday theme in the living room or den can be done by matching curtains, throw pillows and table center piece with a Christmas theme. The fireplace area can be garnished with simple garlands and Christmas lights or a combination of Christmas family pictures and souvenirs in varying sizes and, of course, the traditional Christmas stockings on the chimney wall. The pottery barn has a good selection of home accessories that you can choose from.
The warmth of the living room can extend to the dining room with holiday themed table runners, plant or garland centerpiece and winter candles. Compliment the table setting with napkins and placemat and serving dishes that match. The White Company has simple but elegant winter candles that add a touch of class to your décor.
Accentuate your kitchen with utilitarian decorations like dish rags, mittens and potholders with holiday themes. Your bathroom can also have some holiday character with a Christmas wreath on the door, various shaped soaps, and Winter Botanical Candle that brings the scent of cinnamon sticks, red berries and orange slices in your bathroom.
Decorating you home for the holiday can be really fun especially if you have someone to help you. Just don’t get carried away with the accents and decors lest your home would look like a store showroom.
