When you think of home decoration, what comes to mind? If you’re anything like me, the first thing that pops into your head is bright colors and patterns. The holidays are when we want to express our festive spirit and bring joy to our homes. But since Christmas is right around the corner, I decided to share some of my favorite ways to add art to your home.
After all, Christmas is the most beautiful time of the year, so you want to get into that Christmas spirit as much as possible!
So, give these ideas a try! They’re sure to brighten up your home and make decorating more fun.
- Keep the colors simple.
This is an excellent idea for all who want to try and maintain a more monochromatic look.
Get everything in one color – paint, wallpaper, and furniture – instead of several colors. And here’s the best part: IT STAYS CLASSIC. It will be beautiful no matter the year!
- Add more mirror work.
Mirror-work is something that can add so much to a space. It adds depth and mystery, especially in bold colors or rich textures.
- Go navy and white with accents of color.
Try using black and white accents and an equally bold shade of blue for an icy look. Try doing the same thing by alternating navy blue with a brighter color like turquoise or orange.
- Get creative with your sconces and wall decor.
Try using sconces in different shapes, sizes, and materials – like metal and wood. This will give your space a more eclectic look.
- Add small paintings of family members to the wall.
Instead of having a massive painting of a family member or pet, why not use multiple small paintings and place them on the wall? They’ll add color to your space and will be a great decoration.
- Have snowflake-themed decor.
This is perfect for any holiday season, but it’s especially festive for Christmas. Get snowflake pillows, blankets, and snowflakes as accents on your walls. It’s sure to spread joy!
- Put a vintage feel in your home.
Using old furniture and decor will give your home a more established feel.
- Take the traditional look up a notch by using metal ornaments.
This is one of my favorite ways to decorate for the holidays! The look is great for any season and works exceptionally well in modern spaces. For example, try using it with metallic reds and dark chocolate browns to set off classic black accents in your room – like a fireplace or bed frame.
- Try using plaids and tartans in your home to add a more rustic look.
This is quite popular in Scotland and other Scandinavian countries, but plaids can also be used in the U.S.!
- Use lace accents to give a more feminine touch to your home.
Lace adds a light feeling to any space, so try adding lace curtains for a romantic feel, or go for lacey pillows for the same effect.
- Don’t be afraid to use metallic accents, especially for the holidays.
Metallic accents bring a happy feeling and bring out your home’s holiday spirit.
- Don’t be afraid to use rich colors, especially for the holidays.
Going all-out with one color is great for the holidays – it does make a room feel cozy.
- Go minimalistic and use simple patterns to achieve a more relaxed feel.
This is my favorite idea for decorating for the holidays! If you’re trying to make your home feel cozy and quiet but need help figuring out what to do, this is it! Start by using simple patterns – like stripes or polka dots – with light fabrics on the walls, pillows, and even furniture. It will give an equally warm feeling while not being too overwhelming.
- Bring the outside in.
This is one of my favorite ways to decorate for the holidays! It creates a great natural feeling, especially with pine needles and twigs. Try using this as a backdrop for your fireplace or in the corner of your room.
- Use natural place settings for the holidays to add an earthy touch to your dining room.
Try using fresh, leafy greens and placing them in bowls or on a large tray at each setting.
