It’s the most wonderful time of the year! This holiday season we invite you to spend a little extra time decorating your home. The coziness of the season’s decor trends will make you want to stay indoors all winter long. Here’s how you can spruce up your home for the holidays.
A little sparkle never hurt anybody. From Christmas to New Year’s, sparkle is a December classic. You can incorporate it into your home through the use of string lights, ornaments and glitter centerpieces. Don’t forget to place candles throughout your home for a little bit of holiday magic. Go for scented candles in your favorite winter scents like pine needle, peppermint and cranberry.
Embrace the season’s call to nature by adding in elements of greenery throughout your home. You can do this by placing poinsettia plants on your fireplace and purchasing a real pine tree instead of a plastic one. Go the extra mile by using a “hurricane vase,” as HGTV calls it. A hurricane vase is cheap and simple to make. Find branches from outside and spray paint them in metallic golds and silvers before placing them into a vase. It’s an easy, glam DIY to try this season.
Make your mantel piece shine this season. Add a garland. Not only will this bring a fresh scent into your home, but it will look lush and cheery all season long. Choose one with pine cones and other shiny decorated elements so that it really pops. Personalize it by adding family photos of holidays past to create a warm, nostalgic vibe.

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
