Christmas is around the corner. For most people, this is the time to make decorations fit for the festivities. The Christmas tree needs to be decorated and so is the house. Some people will prefer to go the traditional way of doing things while others are out there looking for new ideas. If you are in the latter, you are in the right place. Below, we look at some ideas you can incorporate to your decorations this Christmas to make you house look exquisite.
1. A Ladder and Holiday Cards
Displaying the holiday greetings cards (or any other type of card as a fact) may not have been in your mind, but now it should be. When guests come in, among the many things they should see is the cards. Use a ladder to hold them, on one side, and place them from top to bottom. This is one of the home decor tips you can use for your cards even during Easter. The other side can be used to hold scarfs when you have visitors on cold days.
2. Bring the Christmas Scent to your Home
Have you ever sniffed a certain scent and it took you way back to a particular place, and for a moment you thought you were in that place? Well, that happens to the best of us. Nostalgia. Christmas to most people smells like food and all things awesome. Make your home to have a unique Christmas scent. For example, some people use the scent of simmering orange water with cloves to remind them it’s Christmas. You can use the smell of fresh citrus fruits, say lemons, oranges, and tangerines, for this.It’s also a way of making a healthy home. Let your imagination prevail.
3. Spice up the Chandelier
More often than not, the chandelier is the central part of the living room. But it doesn’t have to be the usual boring piece it is every another day. Use it to light up you home. Do this by hanging ornaments from it. Use different colors for the ornaments to make it even more glamorous.
4. Don’t forget the Dining Table
If Christmas had a taste, for me it would taste like stuffed turkey and cranberry sauce. It would sound like family and friends, seated at the dining table, telling stories while they indulged in delicious meals and having fun times. Most Christmas memories are made at the dining table. That’s why taking care of the dining table is paramount. Instead of the usual red and green table decorations, go for something livelier. For example, use a malachite tablecloth and pink peonies. When it comes to cutlery, use that which complements your chosen table decor.
As the holidays approach, put your best foot forward when coming up with decorations for your home. The above tips should help you do this. Above all, use decorations that complements, rather than competes, with your home’s interior decor. Make merry, have fun and don’t forget to spread the Christmas love.
