The holidays are just around the corner so now is a good time to start making preparations. It’s time to start thinking about your decor, where you will get it and some ideas to create something fun. Long gone are the days when all you needed were lights and trees to prepare for Christmas. There is so much more you can do to show your creativity and get everyone in the mood for the holidays. If you don’t know what ideas to try out this season, here are a couple of cool ones that will make your home stand out.
Away From the Norm
People usually choose white, red or green for their décor during the holidays. While there is nothing wrong with this, it might be attractive to factor in some other colors for a cozy, whimsical feel. Sometimes the traditional colors feel a bit too stiff and not fun enough. If you are a fun person try using other colors such as pinks, yellows, blues plus the traditional Christmas colors. You can do this by using small colored Christmas trees, stockings and the lights.
Affordable DIY Ideas
If you don’t have much to spend on décor, but you want the best décor, you have to get your creative juices flowing. All you need are some colorful or shiny paper and make cut-outs of images words or any message you want to spread. There are many ideas online on how to even DIY your own Christmas tree, so you get an affordable option.
Neon lights are no longer only used as signs for shops or restaurants; you can even use them in your home. The lights can be for any image you would like as the centerpiece in your home or even a message. The great thing about the lights is that they are not your everyday thing to see in a house. They are unique, and you can have it customized into anything you want, in any color you choose. Do not overdo it though; the beauty of the neon lights signs is when they stand out.
Choose Color Palettes
This year it is all about breaking from the norm, and one way you can do this is by working with the colors within your home. You don’t have to change your décor to the traditional Christmas colors. It doesn’t matter what colors you have in your living room; you can use them in everything from the lights, to the stockings and come up with something stunning. It will feel simple, not forced and as a plus, you won’t have to struggle with changing your décor once the season is over.
There are some people that like going all out and changing everything for the holidays, and that is fine. However, for those that are not too keen on putting up too much, you can focus on a few pieces that give the idea of the season without going over the top. You can have your tree, a bit of green at your fireplace or large mirror or painting. Some miniature trees on the table and shelves and a few stockings. It is simple yet classy enough.
There is no standard way to decorate for the holidays. It all depends on what you want and how you’re feeling. The best thing about the ideas given is that they are so simple and affordable, so you don’t have to break the bank. However, if you are for the traditional décor, there is nothing wrong with that. It’s all about doing what pleases the heart.
