The holidays are finally here, renters! If you pride yourself on your festive home decor, we’re with you! And we’re here to help. From colorful glassware to holiday blankets, here are seven decorating tips to get your home ready for Christmas.
Find Festive Pillows and Blankets
Swap out your colorful throw pillows and patterned blankets for a more festive touch. Greens, reds, and even tans and grays will give your home the warm, holiday feel you’re aiming for. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and colors this holiday season. Pillows and blankets with plaid, bright patterns, festive sayings, and drawings (of Santa, reindeer, snowmen, etc.) all blend beautifully during this joyful season.
Add Some Silver and Gold
If you want to get in the holiday spirit without going completely over the top, mixing metals can be a great way to be cheery without going overboard with red and green. It will add a sense of sophisticated glamour!
Stock up on Colorful Glassware
If you’ll be throwing a holiday party, keep your bar cart stocked with colorful glasses, or add a floral or greenery arrangement to your bar. Search Pinterest for ideas if you’re stuck. And just a tip: the extra greenery that you’ll cut off from the bottom of your Christmas tree makes for a great centerpiece! Add a few flowers and some shiny silver or gold accents, and voila!
Bring the Outdoors In
Want to add warmth to your home without adjusting the thermostat? Consider using natural elements in your decor. Pinecones, greenery, and a mix of branches can make for outdoorsy, yet festive, decor.
Add a Wreath or Two
If you’d like the outside of your apartment or house to be decorated as well, add a wreath or two to your front door or windows. It’s the perfect way to spread your holiday cheer beyond the interior of your home. Garland, lights, wreaths, and bows will add the perfect touch.
Decorate Your Tree
This might seem like the most obvious tip, but putting up a Christmas tree can make a huge difference. Whether your tree if faux or real, big or small, it’ll be just what you need to make your home as festive as it can be. And it’s the perfect focal point for your holiday decor.
Add Wrapped Presents Under Tree
If you don’t have any gifts to wrap just yet, try wrapping empty boxes and place them under your tree as decor! No one will know the difference, and it’s the perfect way to add a little holiday color under your tree. Add a mix of paper and ribbons to make your display uniquely you!
