Just A Dash Of Holiday Detailing Can Create A Merry Room

6 Dec

Just a dash of holiday detailing can create a merry room.

It doesn’t take much ornamentation to embellish your rooms beautifully and get you, your family and friends into the holiday spirit. It’s like adding garnish to a dish to make all the difference in how it looks and tastes. You may be the type of person that goes all out for the holidays – and that’s great. But don’t despair if you want a holiday feeling in your home, but also want to keep it simple. There are lots of small ways to decorate your home for the holidays, with a minimum of cost and effort, and a maximum of enjoyment!

First prioritize which rooms have the biggest impact in creating a feeling of holiday cheer in your house. This might include your living room or great room, your dining room, the kitchen, the front door or your entry way. Then consider small ways to make your home festive:

  • Wreaths or garlands of fresh, fragrant pine
  • A holiday tree, poinsettias or Christmas cacti
  • Holiday scented candles scattered around the house
  • Bowls of sparkly ornaments
  • Scented logs for your fireplace
  • Dining room centerpieces and linens
  • Garlands of holiday lights, for outdoors or indoors
  • Holiday throws and pillows
  • Sweet smelling fresh-baked desserts and mulled ciders and wines

Select a consistent color scheme so your holiday look has continuity. Red, green, gold, silver, blue and white are traditional holiday colors. Or you can be creative and update these traditional colors toward hues of fuchsia or pink, turquoise, lime or acid green, copper or brass. Add just a few holiday accents this season to make your home feel festive and warm. Then sit back, relax and enjoy the season!

Holiday decorating can help make the season more special.

Holiday decorating will help get you and your guests into the spirit of the season, but keep it simple so YOU can enjoy the season without stressing about perfection.holidaydecorating2

There are so many ways you can decorate your home for the holidays, from the smallest candles and accessories to large-scale trees, wreaths and statuary. Typical areas of your home to prioritize for decorating include your living room or great room, dining room table and sideboard, fireplace mantle, front door and outside the house.

Start with a thorough house cleaning and put away other decorative accessories in your home, especially those on tabletops, mantles and furniture. This disciplined step will ensure you have a clean start for holiday trimmings that really pop!

Plan your holiday décor for all the senses – to create a festive look, feel and smell. Think about decorations that can create new family traditions and that make you feel good.

This year, consider a new entertaining concept – maybe the first party of the season held before Thanksgiving or the

  • Transparent glass and earth tones
  • Fuchsia and lime
  • Light pink and forest green
  • Even black and white!

Make your home feel festive and bright this special season with a focus on holiday decorating. For more ideas or for help with your next design project, please contact the team at Delux Drapery & Shade Co.
