Holiday decorating has moved outside of the classic green and red color scheme, and it’s time to start getting creative. Christmas decor in 2017 is a blend of traditional elements and bold new decoration pieces. Most homeowners are going for a “cozy” theme this season, but there are many different styles to choose from whether you’re looking for more a modern or traditional look. Read on to find out how to achieve the perfect look.
In the kitchen, it’s best to play off of the style you already have in place year-round. If you tend to lean more in the way of neutrals, it’s simple to pair elegant silver or gold trees and accessories with your posh look. To amp up the holiday style, have some fun in the dining room and create a dining experience that’s a bit out of your comfort zone. Artisanal Kitchen Supply and Olivia & Oliver offers organic dishes, mugs and flatware to mix and match to create a lovely and inviting holiday table scape. Surprise your guests (or even perspective buyers) with the potential your kitchen space can showcase during the holidays!
The down-home look and feel can be achieved with many of the offerings from Pier 1 Imports. “One of our top holiday trends this season is the ‘all-spruced up’ trend. It’s almost like a version of farmhouse with vintage cars and trucks. The whole vintage and farmhouse trend is happening throughout the country. Across decor in general, we see the customer is drawn to the rustic,’’ said Katelyn Carroll, media relations specialist for Pier 1 Imports. Staging a home can make a huge difference in the selling process, especially during the holidays.
When it comes to hanging Christmas lights outside of the house, LED lights are still a top seller across the country. These lights are energy efficient, bright and have a beautiful color. We recommend using the lines and edges on the house as a guide, and keeping in mind “less is more.” Going overboard often looks tacky and has the opposite effects. If you don’t have the right gear to hang the lights yourself, hire a professional and kick back with some delicious egg nog.
