Every year the same thing happens to me – I want to revamp my Christmas decor. Obviously I can’t buy everything new each year, and plus it’d be like a slap in the face to my decorations that made their debut only last season. I’ve always kept my decor simple. A touch of greenery, red and white holly berries, silver and white accents, and some birch woodsy pieces. I like to think of it as a Rustic meets Red.
During the holiday season there are so many routes you can take when it comes to decorating your home. Bright red, old fashioned or vintage, very joyful and colourful, gold, black and white, rustic…the list goes on and on. And don’t forget the outside, just a few twinkling lights, or you can really go all out on your energy bill and do this.
I’ve always been drawn to Scandinavian Christmas decor. The simplistic style driven by nature, the clean lines and minimalism is right up my alley. These ideas are amazing and have simple dyi’s for anyone looking to bring the outdoors inside. And after I saw this page, it pretty much made me want to pack my bags and go to Iceland for Christmas.
Once the holiday season rolls around I slowly start to bring touches of Christmas around the house. Something on the shelf over here, a center piece makes its way to the coffee table, the fireplace is strung with stockings, and of course accents tucked in various areas waiting to be noticed. It’s so nice having the house decked, but the saddest part is when it’s all over and the decor is all stored away. The house looks so empty afterwards! One thing that is amazing about the day after Christmas is buying new decor. Truth be told I never buy anything that’s Christmas decor related until the 26th…hello Boxing Day sales and a little something called 75% off!
Whatever your holiday decor style is, it’s always fun to take everything out of storage and relive and rekindle the Christmas spirit around your house. Whether it’s minimal, or you look like you live in Santa’s toy shop, make it yours and own it. It’s all about what you love and what makes you feel good.
