I love this time of year! It’s all about family, friends, and fun – and adding a little sparkle to your decor! I have so many people ask me each year for my decorating tips for the holidays, so I thought I’d give you 4 of my best professional tips to get your home into the holiday spirit:
1. Let your decor dictate your holiday palette. No matter how gorgeous your holiday items are, if they are competing with your room instead of complementing it the effect will be lost. So go for colors that work for you, like pink and black, or turquoise and green. It will be colorful and festive!
2. Think fresh! Use fresh evergreen boughs, garlands, and wreaths combined with in-season citrus like lemons, tangerines, and oranges. That will give your home a beautiful natural look, and it smells heavenly!
3. Bring out those collections. The holidays are the perfect time to use your collections of china, nutcrackers, teapots, or figurines. Group them all together to create fun and festive vignettes. I love to use my collections of jadeite for holiday table settings! They’re a unique color, but they really take on a holiday spirit when paired with sparkling silver, china, and glass.
4. Be playful with your decor. I love to decorate a tree for my daughter each year, and it always includes small toys, trinkets, or costume jewelry to give it a whimsical touch that’s personalized for her.
