Everyone loves decorating for Christmas, but if you prefer an upscale look in your home, you’ll stay away from silly Santas and childish elves. You’ll want some thing a bit more stylish and sophisticated. Fortunately, there are many items that fit the bill.
In this article, we will discuss some seasonal decorations that will make your home look anything but tacky.
You really can’t do Christmas without Christmas lights. But the usual red and green can make your home look a bit overwhelming. Warm white lights are the perfect solution. They will bathe your home in a cozy glow, and they can be used to decorate the tree, windows and exterior and interior spaces.
Symmetry is always pleasing to the eye, and it will give your home an elegant look. If you already have a symmetrical living room design, you can further complement it by hanging the same size wreaths at the same height in each window. Floral decorations can balance each other as well.
Go With Warm Colors
We already spoke about how red and green can be a little much for the holiday season. If you don’t want these colors in your lights, why add them to the rest of your home décor? When thinking of alternate colors, there are so many directions you can take it in. You can opt for rich jewel tones like deep emeralds and purples or softer, rosy hues like pink and cream.
Minimalism always looks tasteful. You can integrate this vibe in the decorations you choose as well as the way you position them. For example, you can use simple items like small triangular trees and wreaths. To further capitalize on the look, spread decorations throughout the home to avoid a cluttered appearance.
Leafy greens look warm and rich, and they are a great way to bring the outside in. You can buy decorations that look like the real thing, or source them from the great outdoors. Then hang them in windows, on walls or wherever else you think they will look best.
While many of us think tasteful is simple, you can also create an over-the-top Christmas look. To keep it sophisticated, integrate jewel tones like gold, burgundy and emerald. Get an oversized tree. Use vintage items that scream extravagance. Your home will look like a wonderland of luxury.
Christmas is a time for decorating. Keep it stylish by going for a definite vibe and making it play out in your design. Which of these looks will you be going for?
