For homeowners who love to decorate, there is no better holiday than Christmas. From stockings to string lights, the options are endless when it comes to making your home a special winter wonderland. Unfortunately, the sheer number of options can also make deciding on your decorations a real challenge!
This holiday season, bring the festive spirit into your home with help from your Harlingen interior designers. We have the perfect designer-curated decor for your holiday getaway.
1. Keep It Casual
The holidays are meant to be a time of joy and festivities, but we often get caught up in the stressful whirl of preparations, present shopping, and hosting. Instead of trying to create the perfect Home & Garden Christmas spread, focus on keeping things relaxed, classic, and, above all, fun!
To keep from getting overwhelmed with ornaments, stick to a simple color palette that channels the holiday spirit. If the traditional red and green isn’t to your taste, try using two different hues of the same colors, like burgundy and mint, or two colors from the same family, like red and pink. Then, find simple ways to bring that color palette into your existing decor with things like patterned throw pillows, fuzzy blankets, scented candles, and stockings, of course!
2. Make It Cozy
One of the best parts of the holiday season is getting to curl up with hot cocoa and a good book while watching the cool weather through the light of your twinkling Christmas tree. If you’re looking for a great way to make your home a winter refuge, why not heighten the experience by integrating warm and inviting decor.
Chunky knit blankets, sweet and wood-scented candles, fleece throws, and dim lighting can all go a long way towards creating a cozy atmosphere. If you have a fireplace or Christmas tree, take full advantage by arranging your furniture to face this welcoming focal point.
3. Bring the Outside In
With the sun setting earlier every day and chilly weather on the rise, most of us spend the majority of the winter indoors. However, getting in touch with nature can be even more important in the winter when our energy is often at its lowest. You don’t have to freeze to feel the outdoors this winter.
Instead of struggling through the snow, try using natural greenery to infuse your space with festive, wintery scents. Boxwoods and evergreen sprigs make great table toppers, and hydrangeas can add freshness and color. For an added touch, attach bits of holly to your napkin rings and table settings. Finally, if fresh greenery doesn’t perk your interest, try a fir-scented candle for a simpler alternative.
