10 Interior Design Tips For the Holidays

10 Interior Design Tips to make your home shine for the holidays

  1. Get inspired!  Go to the large department stores to get ideas.   This is easy and fun – just walk around and take note of your favorite looks!  You will get plenty of good ideas and interior design tips.
  2. Don’t forget your front door – go classic and hang a wreath decorated with natural pinecones a bow and sleigh bells or get creative and choose a non-traditional shape or object!   Hang a hand-made wooden star or fill a basket with greens and hang that with a bow (and use a non-traditional color for the bow if desired).  The possibilities are really endless!
  3. Use what you’ve got!  If you have a blue and white color palette in your dining room, pay that off by following this color scheme through in your holiday décor: blue taper and votive candles, blue ornaments, greens and garlands with blue ribbons.  Top it all off with wreaths hanging in the windows decorated with blue accents and bow. 4.
  4. Fill your fireplace with stockings a garland, decorations and bows.  This always adds that festive look, especially with a fire roaring inside!   Don’t be afraid to really load it up – a scantily clad mantel doesn’t quite emit that holiday warmth – go for it!
  5. Create an inviting holiday mailbox—a pretty swag of pine tied on with wire adds a seasonal flourish. Enhance it with red or burgundy accents and pinecones.
  6. Create a centerpiece from branches and greenery you can simply go outside and cut down!  Berry covered branches and lacy hemlock cuttings with shiny small ornaments, a bow and some pinecones will bring the outside in and provide a gorgeous, natural centerpiece!
  7. Lush greenery draped around the house, especially doorways, creates an inviting atmosphere and a woodsy aroma.  Draping the stairway railing is an inviting touch too!
  8. Display “presents” around the house.  Simply wrap and tastefully decorate a few boxes and arrange them on a hall table or a bench.  Use colors that coordinate with the décor in the room you want to place these – a festive and “put-together” look!
  9. Bring the holiday to your kitchen – put a small tree on your island, add garlands, votives, potted greenery; whatever you have to decorate the most used room in the house!
  10. The holiday tree – some basic tips: use plenty of lights, try a non-traditional color scheme, layer the elements (lights, garlands, ornaments, etc.) and dress the base!   The rest is up to you – use whatever ornaments bring you comfort and joy!  Add personal items, plenty of color and enjoy!

Happy Holidays from all of us at Masters Touch!
