The holiday season is all about your senses– the sights, smells, and sounds of Christmas are what make this time of year so special. And decorating your home for Christmas is always an important part to getting in the holiday spirit. Often times the best Christmas decorations are the ones created through years of memories and tradition. If, however, you’re looking to update your holiday decor, we’ve featured a few of our favorite ways to getting your home ready to celebrate this Christmas in style.
If you’re longing for that designer look, pick a color theme. Decorating your house with a consistent color scheme will turn your mismatch decorating style into something that could be found in a home design magazine. We’ve featured a room adorned entirely with red and gold accents. From the tree ornaments to the beautiful potted poinsettias, this room has transformed into a festive, welcoming place for holiday gatherings.
To decorate with a romantic touch, the soft light of candles always provide an intimate feel. The gold candle below is an easy and inexpensive DIY christmas decoration. Any white or gold candle can be transformed into a Christmas addition to your home or as a gift to friends and neighbors. All you need is a candle, spray adhesive, and your glitter of choice.
