For December, our design experts pulled together some of their favorite tips to make your home feel festive during the holiday season.

Holiday Colors & Fabrics

A great way to make your holiday decorations fit with the rest of your home is to match them with an accent color you already use. Decorate your tree with ornaments that match the décor in your house, or you can take it one step further and use garland, wrapping paper, ribbons, and bows that match too. If you like to change your accent color to match the season, you can use gold or silver for a classic and elegant touch. These metallic will pair well with traditional red and green decorations, or modern, earth tone Christmas palettes. Use these colors to accent all the furnishings in your home – your tree, fireplace, entertainment center, and dinner table.

Rather than going with a single accent color, you can bring your home together with a united pattern theme. Plaid and burlap fabrics are extremely popular for this season. We’ve seen these paired with rustic décor to create picturesque rooms for the holidays. Wrap your tree and presents in matching fabrics or wrapping paper for a vintage and cozy look.

Bring Nature Inside

Holiday plants can brighten up your home and add holiday spirit to any room; plus, they can be used anywhere and everywhere! Bring out your inner crafter and use bells and ribbons with pinecones, holly berries, evergreen boughs, and pine sprigs to create décor for every room in the house. Use them to create a stunning centerpiece for the dining room table and to decorate mantels, staircases, and bookshelves. If you’re feeling extra creative use ribbon and tie them to napkin rolls, wrapping paper, and gift bags. Use these with wreaths, poinsettia plants, and mistletoe for a holiday feel in every corner of the house.

Sweet Decorations!

Candy decorations don’t have to end with gingerbread houses – use them in your decorations all around the house. Candy canes, cinnamon sticks, peppermints, and gum drops can be added to any store-bought or DIY décor. Another fun idea is to set up an occasional table as a hot cocoa station. Use festive coffee mugs and decorate it with your accent color, holiday plants, or candy and you’ve created a fun and delicious decoration.

The Meyers Family wishes our friends, family, and customers a safe and happy holiday season. We are here to help you with your design needs, during this season and all year round!
