Unique Home Decor Ideas for the Holidays
1. Cozy Up Your Couches
Upgrading your living room accessories is one of the simplest ways to create a cozy, festive atmosphere your guests will love. Yet, while it’s quick and easy to do, it also makes a stunning impact. Simply swap out your regular couch accessories for holiday-themed pillows in wintery hues that complement your color scheme, such as cream, burgundy, or green. Take it a step further by choosing pillows featuring cheery sayings, animals, or details such as snowflakes. Pull it all together by draping some thick, cable knit throws over your furniture.
2. Add Cheer to Your Entryway
Your entryway is positioned to make the biggest impact on your guests this season, so give this section of your home a little extra attention when decorating. Start with your door: Choose a wreath or hanging decoration to spread some cheer at eye level. Next, add a welcome mat reflective of your preferred holiday style. Wrap up the scene with an outdoor statement accent, such as a nutcracker, set of wooden Christmas trees, or a vintage red sled.
3. Accentuate Standout Pieces
To create a cohesive look, choose a single piece of decor you truly want to stand out in each area of your home. You can surround it with pine cones, garlands, candles, or other small accent pieces, but allow your focal point to truly take the stage. If you lean toward the eclectic or farmhouse style, consider making your wow-worthy accent a holiday vintage truck. If you prefer a warm, classic scheme, a holiday pine cone topiary might suit your look better. There are dozens of options to consider, and Pinterest can be a fantastic source for inspiration, too!
