This year, try these holiday décor ideas for every room in your home.
After you’ve dazzled and decked out the exterior of your home, it’s time to get inspired about your indoor winter wonderland this Christmas. Look around: every empty wall, nook, and cranny has the potential to be draped in lights, fabric, garland, and holiday cheer. Here are some holiday décor ideas for each room in your home this year:
There’s nothing better than crossing the threshold of your home and feeling like you’ve stepped into a magical Christmas tale. Bring the great outdoors in with fresh green garlands, wreaths, and swag. Hang garlands along windows, doorways, or use them to frame any festive focal point. Another simple idea for decorating your home for the holidays is to buy or DIY some Christmas floral arrangements. Some winter blooms to consider are poinsettias, holly, mini roses, amaryllis, cyclamen or even peace lilies. Place a bouquet near the entrance of your home, or in any of the other rooms you’d like to add a flourish of florals.
Festive Family Room
The family room is where most of us gather to watch cheesy Christmas movies, cozy up by the fire, or open gifts from under the tree. No matter what kind of Christmas tree you choose, it’s an opportunity to express your holiday style. Try an elegant monochromatic look, seek to surprise with a vibrant and unexpected color, go for a classic Christmas vibe, or dig out the vintage ornaments for a throwback feel. Stockings are another great way to customize your holiday home décor.
There are lots of modern stocking options in a rainbow of gorgeous colors and a range of materials. Don’t forget the most important part though: the bigger the stocking, the more room for treats! Set a cozy ambiance with candles in your favorite holiday scents: pine, peppermint, cranberry, or cinnamon. Finish the room off with lots of throw blankets and pillows for impromptu post-dinner naps. A blanket ladder is a great way to organize your collections of downy duvets!
Bedroom Boughs of Holly
Your bedroom is a sweet sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of Christmastime. It’s another perfect place to add stacks of blankets and vases full of your favorite winter plants. Try wrapping your favorite holiday greenery around your bed frame or outline your TV with sprigs of cedar and pine. Try using birch log cuttings as a place to put candles, pinecones, or a plant. Get creative with soft, romantic lighting options. Twinkly fairy lights are perfect for winter, or if you want a more rustic feeling, add battery-operated lanterns throughout the room. Don’t forget the candles! And if the mood strikes you, add a little sprig of mistletoe over the doorway or bed.
Dashing Dining Room and Kitchen
For a unique holiday décor idea, try setting up a hot cocoa or coffee bar for the duration of the holidays. Dedicate a bit of counter space or stock up your bar cart with an array of holiday mugs and tasty toppings. Add a bow, ornaments, or sprigs of spruce to jazz it up! Your dining table holds all your best holiday dishes and is the center of so many special moments. Try creating your own Christmas centerpieces with winter flowers, fresh-cut pine, pinecones, twine, or ribbon. A tablecloth or runner that complements the colors of your centerpiece will tie your whole table together!
Don’t underestimate the décor potential of your home office. The office is a great place to add an extra tree, be it mini or a nice pencil tree. Add quirky ornaments for a fun background during video conferences. Showcase your nutcracker, elf, or other fun holiday collection. String up some lights on a timer so they come on at the end of your workday and twinkle late into the evening.
Create a holiday oasis for yourself in your own washroom. Bring out your favorite soaps and lotions and fill special holiday dispensers to give your bathroom a glitzy makeover. Try clear crystal dispensers and dishes for a classy look. Set out lush towels in green, gold, or silver, and try swapping out your shower curtain for something in the same palette. Put out a bowl of pinecones with a few drops of essential oil or sprigs of pine for an extra fresh scent. Safely pull back your shower curtain and fill the tub with a bit of water so you can float votive candles for some romance and relaxation. Whatever you choose to hang on your chimney with care, remember to make it personal.
The holidays are a time for sparkle and glamour, but it’s also a wonderful time of year to remember what is important. Personalize your decor, display family photos, and heirlooms. Deck your halls with things that make your heart and home feel warm.
