Create a Unique Holiday Design Style

Get creative this holiday season with your décor! When you’re preparing your home for entertaining guests and hosting family gatherings, remember that holiday decorating is about the magic of the holiday season. Use your décor to help bring the spirit of the holiday season into your home. From traditional to modern decoration designs, this is an opportunity to create your own unique holiday design style that your guests will love.

 

Color Palette. When decorating your home for the holidays, keep your décor simple for a polished and elegant look. We all know the classic holiday decorating colors, so start with choosing a unique color palette. Metallic décor is great way to achieve simple and eye catching modern holiday décor. For a modern approach, choose silver, blue and white. Or pairing red, one of the classic colors used to capture the holiday spirit, with softer hues like gold and white creates a balanced festive look for your home. For a warmer look, try red, gold and brown. This palette creates a sense of comfort, and is great for a home with dark wood interior trim or furnishings.

Change it up. Give your home an exclusive layout for the holidays! Rearrange your furniture so the focal point is where ever you are hanging your stockings this year, directing attention to your holiday decorations. If you don’t have a fireplace, arrange your furniture to create a comfy conversation space for your guests. In addition to decorating, simply moving around furniture in your house can make the space feel like it was specifically designed for the holidays.

Outdoor. Make a holiday statement with the exterior of your home! You can expand your interior color palette to the outdoors, or choose a new one. The entryway is the focal point for curb appeal. Get creative! Use geometrical designs for your décor with square moss wreaths for a more modern appeal, or try adding some green to your front porch with potted evergreens in festive planters. Don’t forget the Christmas lights! Try rope lights to outline your entry way or windows on the front of the house, or icicle lights are a fun way to bring the winter season to your home.
