Creating a home that meets your holiday hopes can feel like a big task... but it doesn't have to! Friend, we are here to break it down for you and offer some suggestions for helping you to love the festive home you've made, without the overwhelm.
Choose a Simple Color Scheme
Opt for a simple and cohesive color scheme that will streamline your decorating process. Stick to a few complementary colors that are easy to work with and can be easily incorporated into various decorations. To help you get started, here are three mood boards we've created!
Use Multipurpose Decor Pieces
Invest in versatile decorations that can serve multiple purposes. For instance, opt for vases that can be used in multiple seasons and trays or baskets that can be filled with seasonal items year after year. Choosing staple decor pieces that can be easily repurposed for different holidays will make your life much easier for each seasonal switch!
Focus on Key Areas
Instead of trying to decorate every corner of your home, focus on key areas that will make the most impact. Concentrate on decorating the entryway, living room, and dining area, as these are the spaces where guests (and your family!) are likely to spend the most time.
Choose an Anchor Piece.
One or two focal points within your holiday home make a big impact. Your tree can be one of those, so that's an easy checkmark! A second focal point might be an oversized wall art piece, or word sign, that exemplifies the spirit of the season for you. Place it on a mantle, over a sofa, or over a buffet or console table to create a second major anchor piece in your home. The large impact of these two pieces will help your entire home begin to feel festive!
Declutter Non-Seasonal Decorations
Finally, before adding holiday decor, consider decluttering your regular decorative items. Removing excess items will not only make the space feel more open and inviting but will also make it easier to add holiday decorations without creating a cluttered look.
There you have it! Focusing on these few key tips can simplify your holiday decorating process and create a festive atmosphere without the extra overwhelm. Before you know it, you will be well on your way to a cozy home for the holidays!
Happy holiday decorating, friend!
