We love how the holidays entice all of the senses. The colors, the textures and the smells of the holidays are intoxicating! We love bringing natural and whimsical elements into our homes during this time of year. It allows you to be totally absorbed in the cheer and we believe less stressed if you can decorate your home in a HON way :)
So for some HON tips: LESS fake more REAL! We would rather have just a few focal points in the home with holiday cheer with real tree trimmings, berries, eucalyptus rosemary than an entire house with plastic greenery. Who needs holiday scented candles when your decor can do the work!
Table scape: Stick to 2-3 colors max for your table scape. Great combos would be: white & gold, green & white, white & red, white & gray or silver & green. Take those tree trimmings and gather them with some white pillar candles with different heights and we are slowly on our way to a beautiful and simple table scape. Another great option is to take one of your favorite decorative large bowls and fill with glass ornaments that you have filled with either small tree trimmings, berries, eucalyptus or small succulents.
Decor Ideas: We love the look of hanging a wreath against a leaner mirror or larger mirror in your home. It will act as a nice focal point and add lots of texture to your space! It is also really fun to pick a small theme for your decor, maybe you traveled somewhere fun this year and want to bring some of those colors or influences in? Or you and your family LOVE holiday candies or animals and can look for decor or items you have that go with that theme!
Mantel Ideas: We love the idea of mixing old with new- we found some awesome vintage nutcrackers on Etsy and mixing those with some new modern ones like these from CB2 would be super cool. Add in some of our favorite small twinkle lights wrapped around the bottom and you have a very cool holiday mantel! We are also loving this years white fuzzy and furry stockings! This added texture will make the room feel extra cozy and won't clash with the rest of your decor.
Front Door: We are loving this pom pom trend this year that we are seeing! Check out Etsy or CB2 for some great looking and unique wreaths!
Tree: Similar to your table scape and home decor try to continue your theme or color palette your tree! If you love a lot of colorful and vintage ornaments that totally works, try to add a white pom pom or white ball felted strings around the tree to bring everything together and help break up some of the color! We love these vintage inspired ornaments from Anthropologie this year!
Check out all the goodies we have found for you and your home this holiday season with some amazing images for inspiration!
