Decorating for the Holidays: Pick Your Style

Traditional or Glam? Let’s talk holiday decorating styles.
Decorating for the holidays is so much fun! How do you decide what style to go with? Surround yourself with colors, textures and accessories that make you feel good and put you in the holiday spirit.
Clean, contemporary and glitzy? You’re definitely glam.
Go for a sophisticated look with silver and gold anchored by rich, dark solids.
Start with your tree and work your way out into the room from there. Skip the colored lights and grab some white lights that will work nicely with a glam palette. Stock up on gold and silver ornaments in classic shapes and styles. Don’t forget, wrapping paper gets the glam treatment, too.
Try using glass vessels as a way to share holiday treats and maintain a minimalist look. Find traditional décor and accents that shimmer and shine for even more glam.
Just like refreshing a room each season, decorative pillows and throws are easy ways to bring large pieces into the decorating fold. A fluffy faux fur throw and textured pillows reflect the season and add some warmth.
Warm, cozy and familiar? You’re definitely traditional!
It’s everything you love about Christmas – the house awash in a chorus of red and green, the aroma of pine mingling with the sweet smell of homemade pies, big ribbon bows and tartan plaid wrapping paper – it doesn’t get more traditional! Just because you’re going traditional doesn’t mean you can’t freshen things up – new strings of light and new ornaments says yester-year without saying last year.
Don’t be afraid to spread holiday cheer throughout the entire house. Pillows and throws aren’t just for living rooms. Use them to easily refresh a bedroom and you’ll have visions of sugarplums dancing in everyone’s head. Decorations in the kitchen will have you humming holiday songs while baking your favorite seasonal treats.
Use holiday dinnerware and glassware with traditional patterns and accents. Candles and candlesticks are a beautiful way to add warmth to any room. Layer different size candles in seasonal colors and textures. Candlesticks and holders in natural elements work very well with a traditional theme. Surround candles and décor on your table with seasonal florals and say holiday dinner is served.
What about Hanukkah decorating?
Different holiday, same idea – design and décor can be traditional or contemporary. The menorah at your centerpiece might be traditional, like a family heirloom passed down through the generations, or a candelabrum that reflects a more contemporary idea. Whether you choose traditional or glam, coordinate dinnerware, glassware and décor with the colors of the holiday for eight beautiful nights.
