5 Tips For Decorating Your Home For The Holidays
We know that sometimes decorating for the holidays can be a work in progress, so we’re coming to you with 5 holiday decorating tips to make your home look extra merry and bright this year!
1. KNOW WHAT DECORATIONS YOU HAVE AND PLAN IT OUT
It’s always a good idea to make a list of everything you have – or take pictures.
Then, at the end of each Christmas when you take everything down, you can mark off anything that has broken or needs replacing ready for next year – while it’s fresh in your head.
2. HAVE A COLOUR SCHEME/THEME IN MIND AND STICK TO IT!
Having some sort of theme within your decorations will look amazing, tie each room together, and enable you to use decorations in different rooms over the years for a change.
We suggest sticking with around 2-3 colours, and then you know when you see new decorations what will and won’t make a nice addition to the collection.
TIP – Keeping things neutral with silvers and golds will work with any room colour scheme, and they are timeless – meaning you’re less likely to grow tired of them over the years!
3. KEEP IT COZY
Especially with Canadian winters, we encourage you to make your home a chic, warm, cozy space – because there’s nothing better than curling up on the couch with a hot cup of hot cocoa! You can keep it cozy by filling your space with festive throw blankets, twinkle lights, candles and anything else that can help set the right mood.
4. CONSIDER MINIMAL TOUCHES
Don’t feel like your holiday decorations have to be over-the-top in every room – or any room at all, for that matter. Placing minimal touches throughout like a strand of lights, a simple greenery wrath, or a small “merry” typography wall art – this is a great way to add the holiday cheer in any room of your Kimberley home!
5. BRING THE OUTDOORS IN
Who says you need a real tree to enjoy the scent of fresh pine? Bring in some pinecones, cranberry branches and other rustic elements and you’ve got yourself some super-simple holiday decor. You can also recreate this look with foliage items from your local craft store – maybe pick up a pine-scented candle to bring in the scent.
