Tis the season to start thinking about how you can give your home some chic holiday cheer.  To help inspire your festive side, we have put together some great tips to make you and your guests fall into a cozy state of holiday bliss.


Move over mainstays.  Green and red are so predictable.  For seasonal sophistication, choose a variation of the classic Christmas hues, such as rich burgundy, dark cranberry, deep golds and hunter green.  Choose one color throughout or choose all four and mix them with neutrals for harmony.  Dreaming of a white Christmas?  Delight in white and add a punch of color or silver and gold and even patterns.  Use these colors in accent pillows on sofas, cozy throws or blankets, vases, candles or decorative bowls filled with ornaments in your chosen shades.  Do a drapery upgrade with your new color scheme. Fabrics like velvet or silk add a sense of romance and luxury for the holidays.

DIVINE DINING

Adding a new tablecloth with matching table linens in these rich, elegant colors can really tie in the sophisticated scene.  Mix accent plates in these shades with your good china to add a dash of color. Festive stemware in chic hues also make a great accent for your holiday table.  


GET SOME CULTURE

Incorporate your cultural background into your decor this season.  Create a personal, intimate feeling by using ethnic pieces that reflect your family culture and history.


NATURE’S DECOR

Natural elements like branches, leaves, pine cones, berries and cream-colored florals on a fireplace mantle and centerpiece make for simple, charming, decorative elements in the traditional Christmas spirit.


VINTAGE CHIC

We just love vintage decorations that have a homemade feel to give your decor a more traditional look.  You can also add a nostalgic twist.  Think about using handed-down ornaments from prior generations, such as a few ornaments that were your great-grandmother's or other ornaments that were your parents'. They allow you to share stories of past Christmas get-togethers.

Vintage toys that remind us of childhood, like red wagons and old train sets, can be used as accessories or decorations.  You may have items you inherited stored away from loved ones passed.  Now is the time to use them.  From vintage baubles to lace linens, look at them again and see if they can become a decoration or accent of some sort, keeping the memory of a loved one who has passed present with you each holiday.

SCENTS & SCENTABILITY

Nothing ties all this sumptuous holiday décor together better than a deliciously inviting fragrance flowing throughout your home.  Cozy, soft candlelight twinkling next to a plush sofa or on a dining room table while your guests engage in great conversation creates a relaxing, feel-good vibe. Fragrance also assists in bringing together all of the design elements to create a complete holiday experience.  For the holidays, try candles or diffuse essential oils in scents such as cranberry, cinnamon and clove, fresh pine or vanilla.
