We are now in the Christmas season which means it’s time to get your home ready for the season.
The holidays are a time when sprucing up your home hits an all-time high, but it can be difficult to find festive decorations that match your style. While there is nothing wrong with snowmen, Santa figurines and lots of red and green, it’s OK to think outside the (gift) box.
Follow these three tips for a gorgeous holiday home.
- Dress your door
Your front door sets the tone for what is happening on your interior. Dress your front door with an evergreen swag adorned in elements showcased within your home.
A bit of wired ribbon, branches and feathers can do the trick — and be scaled to an appropriate size for your space.
2. Begin a countdown
Walls and mantles can be an incredible asset for small space holiday decorating. The December countdown is easy with an advent calendar in the form of a garland. Drape your wall or mantle with the numbered fabric piece and add in holiday goodies to be discovered each day of the month.
3. Show off a garland
Your banister or railings can add to your holiday decor, too. Take fresh garland to new heights with a string of lights and wired ribbon. Simply blend in ornaments you may typically use on a tree, layering different colors and textures for depth.
4. Decorate your Living room.
t’s where you are going to spend most of your time with your guests, make sure it’s clean, warm & cozy. You can give it a fresh looking by painting it, add Christmas decorations, hang some paintings, and add a vase flowers for a fresh new look.
5. Adorn the bedding
Get your holiday guests in the spirit by adding a little “jingle” to their guest suite. Simply tuck some patterned shams or a festive throw pillow into their bedding scheme.
Christmas season is all about merrymaking with friends & family which means your house should be ready for hosting.
Your bathrooms need to have extra towels, extra toothbrushes, extra bathroom slippers, extra robes. Stock up your bathroom with adequate toiletries even if your guests bring their own, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared in case they forget something.
