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!

Adding a Beautiful Wreath Will Round Out Your Decorating Style

4 Nov

Wreaths can last all year long; they’re not just for the holidays.Wreath3

Many of us think of wreaths as decorative elements only for the December holidays or for Thanksgiving, but the fact is that a decorative wreath – depending on its style – can add a beautiful touch to your home all year long.

Many wreaths are designed for holiday use in their colors and materials, including glimmery gold and silver accents and bright, shiny ornaments. Others incorporate non-holiday elements, such as

nuts, seeds, sea shells, pine cones, non-holiday themed greenery and more. Also for non-holiday use, think citrus leaves, flowers and fruit.

Wreaths are not just a visual design element. They can add a scrumptious aroma to your home too! For the holidays consider traditional fir and pine. For all year long, think bay leaves, sage, cinnamon, rosemary and chili peppers.

And wreaths can be hung just about everywhere, not just on a front door! This includes walls, windows, above fireplaces, even on a mirror in your powder room! Of course, hanging a wreath on the front door during the holidays is the perfect way to get your guests into the holiday spirit before they even come into your house!

Do you have an unusual space where you want to hang a wreath? Wreaths don’t have to be perfectly round.

Sometimes they’re oval, square or rectangular, and that shape can add a unique decorative element to your home.

Add a beautiful wreath to your home this season – for now and into the coming year.
