Decorating for the Holidays With Shimmer & Simplicity

With the approach of the holiday season, it’s easy to get a little carried away with festive decorations. While heavy handed decor may work well in movies like Elf, we’ve all seen those displays that are just a little too busy in the real world. We have some suggestions to help you keep things simple but elegant. A little bit of sparkle can go a long way!

 

Start with the Basics

While red and green are fun accent colors, keep your foundation color palette simple. Think snowy winter white…so cozy yet so wintery! Winter white is such a nice soft color and never goes out of style. Other options are a gentle grey or soothing taupe.

Look to Nature for Inspiration

Tis’ the season when we find it normal to bring entire trees inside our homes! Why stop there? Touches of nature make for beautiful holiday decor. A bundle of pinecones or twigs, boughs of holly, or swags of greenery can really pop when paired with a simple winter white backdrop.

Choose Carefully

More isn’t always better.  Choose quality over quantity and your decor can be timeless and tasteful.

Winter Means Cozy

Don’t forget the layers!  Functional items like knit throws and decorative pillows can be used as decor and our latest seasonal throw pillows can definitely bring in a bit of shimmer while still evoking a sense of warmth.  They make perfect gifts too! Also incorporate a few extra elements like pine scented candles or hand soap to make things cozy..

Get Your Sparkle On

With neutrals & naturals as a foundation, be inspired by frost, icicles, & crisp starry nights to bring some sparkle into your decor.  Whether you love silver or gold, both can really bring out the glam in an elegant holiday display.

 

We hope these ideas can help you keep things simple and festive this holiday season!
