Holiday Décor – Seasonal sophistication
Green and red might be Christmas mainstays, but your holiday decor doesn’t have to depend on these two hues alone. This season, look to more sophisticated versions of those classic shades with some other, more versatile tones. For the sophisticated theme, the colors are rich burgundies, deep golds, dark cranberry and hunter greens as color schemes. You can focus your holiday decor on just one color throughout, a mix of two or all four.
Spice your table
To really set a sophisticated scene, add a new tablecloth or table linens in these rich, elegant colors. Use solids for the placemats and a fun pattern for the napkins to add interest and depth. Salad plates in these shades mixed in with your standard china add a punch of color, while entertaining new stemware in festive, chic hues make a great accent for your holiday table.
Slip on slipcovers
Add slipcovers to your kitchen chairs or change the cushions on dining room chairs. This is a simple but noticeable change and freshens up your furniture without having to buy any new major item.
One of the easiest ways to incorporate a seasonal theme throughout your home is with accessories. Use these colors in accent pillows on beds or sofas, cozy throws or blankets, vases, candles or decorative bowls filled with ornaments in your chosen shades.
Punch up the powder room
New towels in seasonal solids, patterns or festive trims carry through your look effectively. The powder room is one room your guests will use, so don’t forget about it.
Upgrade your drapery
Change your everyday drapery to your new color scheme. Fabrics like velvets or silks add a sense of luxury for the holidays.
