Hosting guests for the holidays can be a great way to showcase your Christmas spirit. There are a lot of ways to tailor the perfect Christmas atmosphere to your home. While the season is often short-lived, it can be one of the merriest times of the year and well worth the investment of creating your perfect holiday oasis. Plus, there can be more to holiday decorating than just putting up a Christmas tree and some lights. To truly highlight your style, here are some great tips for decorating your home just right:
Tailor Christmas to Your Home’s Style
There is typically a very generic and traditional style of holiday decorating: the red and green color theme with a large pine tree in the corner of the living room. While this design can work in some homes, you can also tailor Christmas to your personal style. For example, if you have a Rustic style home, try to incorporate rustic, and nature-inspired Christmas décor. Whereas if you have a Shabby Chic style, adding more light, pastel tones to your Christmas look can capture the style. You can invest in all different colored Christmas trees and décor to utilize your home’s design. Just make sure it fits your home’s style, not just the traditional Christmas look.
Convey Holiday Cheer throughout Your Whole Home
Christmas cheer should be felt throughout the whole home. From the master bedroom to the half bath, Christmas decorations and lights can flourish throughout your home. Adding Christmas-themed blankets to your rooms, incorporating Christmas lights to illuminate the night, and your own Christmas décor to every room can truly make your whole home feel invested in the season. Soap dishes, table décor, hand towels, wreaths, garland, and throw pillows can all help contribute to sprucing up every room in your home.
Creating Your Own Christmas Color Palette
The traditional Christmas color palette is green and red with the occasional white. However, nothing limits you to this color palette. What is your take on Christmas? Do you love bright, happy colors? Perhaps, the cool tones of the winter environments make it Christmas for you. There are so many color palettes to choose from then to just limit yourself to red and green. That being said, remember to stick to your theme throughout your home.
Adding Christmas Scents
Christmas is more than just the visual aesthetics but also comes with a plethora of incredible aromas. Help enhance your home’s Christmas spirit by incorporating many different Christmas scents throughout it. Peppermint, gingerbread, or pine-scented candles can all help with enhancing your décor. Think beyond candles and consider the scents of baked goods and the scent of burning wood in your fireplace. All these elements can increase the hygge of your home and create a cozier environment.
We hope you consider adding more elements to your space and tailoring it to your dream Christmas. This holiday season is perfect for spending time inside with the family, so make sure your home is full of glee and cheer with these holiday tricks. Be safe this holiday season, and Merry Christmas!
