With the holiday season rolling in, it’s time to deck the halls and bring out the festive decor. Try incorporating some of these fun decoration ideas into your decor — they are sure to keep your home looking festive all winter long!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Avoid the gloom from cold weather by incorporating pops of color around the home. Don’t stick to the typical red and green combo — purple, blue, and gold are popular at Christmas, too.

Share the holiday love

With all those holiday cards coming in, you’re going to need a cool way to display them all. Your fridge and coffee table are great places, but if you’re the DIY type you can repurpose an old window shutter and hang it where everyone can enjoy it.

Add the scents of the seasons

Stimulate your senses by placing holiday-scented candles around the house — scents like peppermint and pine tree can add festive smells and colors to your home. Real trees and wreaths can also give your home a fresh, piney smell.

Decorate outside, too

Make an impression on houseguests before they step inside your home by adding decor to the outside as well.

Wreaths are all the rage, but don’t be afraid to put up some lights — bonus points if they are multi-colored!
