Christmas Decor At Its Finest
(4 min read) The most wonderful time of the year (according to Frank) is finally here! Once again it’s time for you to get those boxes with old ornaments out of the attic, go visit your local Christmas tree farm and start stressing out over the unbought presents and last-minute decisions. However, there’s one thing we can help with — filling your home with Christmas magic… Tasteful and stylish Christmas magic.
It’s easy to get lost in Christmas decor and go overboard. I mean, where IS the limit really? Is the limit right after that colorful Christmas tree? Or after those thick (excuse my flirty language) garlands on your banisters? Or is it after those miniature Santa sleighs next to the fireplace? Hm. I’m not sure, but I can tell you one thing, it IS before that 4ft plastic Santa Claus you were about to place in your backyard!
Unusual Color Schemes
Well, it’s quite questionable if anything can be called unusual anymore because almost everything was already done at this point. An unusual color scheme is anything that abbreviates from the traditional Christmas decor colors, such as green, red, and white. For example, go with copper and navy schemes, or baby pink. These schemes are easy to achieve because there are already a bunch of decorations in those colors on the market. if you, for example, go for yellow or orange, you’ll have fewer choices.
Affordable and stylish, these will come in handy if you are switching color palettes for the holidays. You won’t have to buy a bunch of expensive ornaments and decorations to fit your new theme. Paper decorations almost always end up looking elegant and chic wherever you add them, decorating your Christmas tree with them, hanging the on the ceiling, or just placing them randomly throughout your house, they will always look charming and tasteful.
Tassels Are In Again
I was never a huge fan of tassels, but there are so many different variations of them out there, that even I bought a few to hang here and there. However, if this is your first year decorating in a new space, tassels can be a perfect, easy on your budget, and easy-to-place Christmas decorating solution. Tassels will look cute on your tree, on doorknobs, on the corners of your drawers and the handles of your cabinets, etc.
Tree Skirts Are Out
Classic tree stands and tree skirts are out this season. Instead of them, choose a ceramic or porcelain planter, or vintage fishbowl. Using one of them as a stand will heighten the tree and make it look more extravagant, not to mention there will be more space for the presidents from Santa under it. *wink, wink
Swap Ordinary Existing Items
There are plenty of ordinary items that can be used as Christmas decor out there. Christmassy kitchen towels, plates, table cloths, seat cushions, doormats, take a pick, just try not to overdo it. For example, choose a single pattern and go with it. If you go for a candy cane motif, make every item have red and white stripes over it. It may sound excessive, but it will look great.
We hope we gave you some valuable ideas, so you don’t end up with a … You know what? Christmas is the jolliest holiday and if you decide to be tacky and go all out, no one should judge. However, if you would like to be elegant and chic, then feel free to use some of our ideas.
