My Ideal Christmas Home

Bring warmth and cheer to your house this Christmas. Add a little spice decorations to your home. Let your visitors be happy that they can walk into a homely space.

Here are a few ideas below:

CREATE A WARM WELCOME

A brilliant array of paper luminaries will do anytime. Line them up along your front walkway, on your driveway, or scatter them on your porch for a bright, twinkling Christmas display that’s so simple and affordable to pull off. Use lightings to light up light up your driveway/parking lot.

CREATE A STUNNING CENTERPIECE FOR YOUR DINING TABLE

Create a formal and elegant Christmas centerpiece with romantic red roses surrounded by white tallow berries displayed silver vases made to resemble birch bark. Use a metallic silver vase, because they reflect the warm, glowing light from candles, the rich reds from flowers, and the patterns on table settings in an elegant, prismatic way.

DECORATE WITH COLORS THAT MATCH YOUR DÉCOR

Just because large department stores seem to explode in bright reds and greens during the Christmas season does not mean that you have to completely hide your house’s existing décor when decorating for the holidays. Instead, plan your Christmas decorations so that the décor works with, rather than hides, your existing décor. Even if it means using unexpected colors, like cream and beige, a room with well-incorporated decorations looks classy and expensive.

WRAP YOUR COFFEE TABLE

No, we are not telling you to wrap your coffee table in wrapping paper. Rather, get creative and upgrade your living area by wrapping a coffee table in belts of festive Christmas ribbon. Transform your coffee table into a Christmas present by crisscrossing strands of ribbon over the top and sides of the table, like you would when wrapping a gift. To avoid over-decoration, choose a neutral ribbon color that is close to the color of the table, and wrap loosely. Add festive centerpieces, like spray painted pine cones, and metallic family heirlooms to add sparkle to the elegant decoration.

DON’T FORGET THE STAIRCASE

Take advantage of your beautiful banister. Drape festive green winter garland up the handrail of a staircase, and anchor it with metallic gold or rich red bows for a Christmas welcome in your foyer.

PUT OUT PRETTY PILLOWS

Quickly take your everyday living area to Christmas village by swapping out your basic throw pillows for festive, holiday-themed pillows. This quick fix is an inexpensive and easy way to redecorate a room and change the entire room’s look for the Christmas season.
