Christmas Decorating Tips

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! With only 17 more day left… who’s counting anyway 🙂 …we have gathered our talented interior designer’s best décor tips!

“Most people feel they need to go over the top during the holidays, but less really can be more. If I could offer one tip this season, it would be to choose a few key areas where you would like to highlight Christmas in your home rather than adding decorations to every room.  By doing less, it leaves more room for family, simple traditions, and the true spirit of Christmas.”  – Lori

“Artificial or Real?! Why not do both? My tip for decorating this season would be to mix in fresh garland above the mantle with your existing artificial Christmas tree, to add the smell of Christmas we all are longing for.   A little bit of the real thing will go a long way in creating the perfect holiday space.” – Naomi

“I’m more of a neutral pallet kind of person. So when it comes to Christmas, I really just want to bring in my family’s heirlooms but stay true to myself. If you think of yourself as a non-traditionalist, try this… Ditch the red and green color scheme, and try and incorporate neutral decor, natural greenery, and cozy textures. Then when you mix in your nostalgic memorabilia you will be surprised how festive and less chaotic your home can become.” – Lauren

“My tip for decorating at Christmas is to try to stick to as much of a monochromatic colour scheme as you can, along with mixing different textures for added interest. Tones of warm whites, light creams with cool grays used on front door wreaths, tree decorations, table center pieces and ornaments are calming yet beautiful. When you add greenery to these types of color palettes, it really stands out. ” – Lynn
