The holiday season is upon us here in Weston, and for many that means a long day of putting up lights, obtaining a tree, and hanging ornaments; and no one wants to do all that work for a poor result. Here are seven pieces of advice to ensure that your decorations look beautiful.
Keep the Colors Consistent
By choosing a cohesive color palette, both your interior decorations and exterior lights will look better, even they are just the classic Christmas red, white, and green. And once you have a good palette of colors to use, choosing a metallic color to add works great design-wise as well. Gold or silver strongly compliment any group of colors and make decorations look modern and refined.
Add Depth and Texture
With Christmas designs, layering is king. In the space of a room, texture and depth often create a comfortable and cozy space. Ribbon, pillows, blankets, and other decor add a lot to the holiday atmosphere, and one can no go wrong with adding those items to any room. The layered textures can also compliment the color palette mentioned before.
Get a Christmas Tree
This may seem obvious, but many miss this easy way to add a ton of Christmas cheer to their home. Whether big or small, real or artificial, the mere presence of a tree is great for holiday spirits. It does not even have to be fancily decorated, and if cost is an issue, there are hundreds of DIY Christmas tree decoration ideas to be found online.
For a warm and cozy atmosphere, light some candles. Candles look amazing as a table centerpieces, and scented ones can add even more holiday spirit. The candles do not even have to be fancy; any candle will do if you want to add comfort and warmth to your Christmas decorations.
