Create a Welcoming Well-Lit Entrance
Nothing else makes or breaks a home more than a first impression – the entrance to your home! A sparkling chandelier, twinkle lights and garlands draped around the stairs and throughout will make your home inviting and holiday-ready!
Multiple Trees Throughout Your Home
Don’t think a Christmas tree needs to be reserved for only your family room, place another one upstairs to spread the holiday cheer! Who doesn’t like sleeping next to a beautifully decorated tree with twinkling lights all night long!
Use Warm and Toasty Colors
Colors such as burnt orange, brown, deep red, forest green, and gold make a room feel so many degrees warmer! It’s all about creating the perfect ambience and the right balance between fall, and winter color schemes. Don’t go all-out with red and green, try to incorporate some of your decor from the fall season.
Pink for the Ladies
You know how to make a Christmas tree look glam? Buy a white Christmas tree and cover it with eye-popping colors such as pink, turquoise, purple and green. Drape pink ribbon down the sides and you’ve got yourself the perfect tree for a teen girls room!
Warm Up a Space with Fur
Faux fur or genuine fur, whatever your taste is make sure you add this cold weather staple to your decor. Fur throw blankets, fur pillows, and even sheepskin rugs are ideal to keep your toes toasty and give your home a lodge type of feel.
Make Movie Nights Magical
Cozy up to a great movie on the big screen using a projector, bean bag chairs, a roaring fire and tons of twinkle lights. Use fur and thick wool blankets to snuggle up and don’t forget the hot chocolate, marshmallows and popcorn!
