Finding Holiday Décor for Every Room In the House
Holiday décor comes in all shapes, sizes, and styles, whether you’re looking for twinkling lights for the exterior of your house or a vintage tinsel Christmas tree inside. When adding to your holiday collections, it’s important to find different decorations for each area of the house. Certain items, such as our sophisticated ornaments, are designed to elevate specific rooms, while other collections can dress up various surfaces throughout your home.
Choosing a Holiday Décor Style
Research different styles of holiday décor! Some people prefer decorations that remind them of childhood Christmas, leaning into the colorful vintage-inspired items. Others prefer a more modern feel, with snowy whites and gold accents. From the throw blankets you snuggle up with to watch your favorite holiday movies to your mugs full of hot chocolate, every item in your collection can be inspired by the holiday décor style you choose.
Does it All Need to Match?
When curating your holiday décor collection, consider whether you want to decorate with a cohesive or eclectic look. Both have their time and place, and it’s up to you to decide how you want to deck the halls this Christmas!
To accomplish a harmonious look throughout your home, stick to specific colors for Christmas in every room of the house. Decide on your favorite color scheme, such as classic reds and greens, and find complementary items that pair well with one another. Choose specific Christmas dishes, ornaments, tree skirts, and more that go well together for matching holiday décor that you’ll love year after year.
Some people prefer to decorate by mixing and matching their favorite holiday décor items, creating an eclectic festive feel throughout their home. Don’t feel limited to just one pattern of Christmas dishes—unlock your inner designer and pair together the décor that makes you feel that holiday cheer.
Christmas Décor Essentials:
Christmas trees: Whether they’re fresh-cut firs, fake trees, tinsel, or some abstract option, a Christmas tree is a holiday staple. You’ll also need lights and a tree skirt.
Ornaments: No Christmas tree is complete without a collection of ornaments. We always decorate with our commemorative ornaments to remind us of all the important milestones we’ve been through as a family. And don’t forget the topper!
Garlands: Garlands, whether you like the classic greenery, boho felted balls, or sparkly tinsel, are versatile decorations for any room of the house. They look great and tie together a theme, from the stair banister to the tablescape at your holiday dinners.
Christmas villages and figurines: Any surface in your home can become a winter wonderland with the addition of festive figurines or timeless Department 56 villages.
Dishes and serveware: Incorporate Christmas dishes and festive serveware into your collection all season long to bring holiday cheer to your table at every meal.
Linens: The dining room, kitchen, and guest bathroom have the most traffic in the house, so it’s only right to spruce up these rooms with festive linens. Grow your collection of hand towels, cloth napkins, placemats, and more to transform these rooms during the holiday season.
Lights: Both the inside and outside of your house can be transformed with the addition of twinkling lights, whether you choose the dreamy yellow-white or vintage color bulbs.
Stockings: Line the mantle, stairway, or a bookcase with darling stockings, inviting Santa to leave treats during his stop. Whether you have matching stockings that perfectly complement your tree skirt or a different look for each one, this quintessential Christmas decoration is sure to spread joy.
Wreaths: Welcome guests to your home with festive wreaths on your front door or placed cheerfully throughout your home. Classic fir boughs make a fragrant statement, while fluffy ribbon wreaths and ornament-filled options will bring joy for years to come.
