How to Decorate for the Holidays

Sew Beautiful Windows > Design > How to Decorate for the Holidays

From a designer’s perspective, the holiday season is a unique time — it offers homeowners the opportunity to decorate their space in a noticeably different style than the other ten months of the year. Come November and December, an interesting mix of trend and tradition combines to outfit homey, beautiful living spaces. Regardless of your celebration of choice, we have some universal tips to help you bring the winter season indoors.

Pick a Theme

Maybe you can’t get enough of Christmas, maybe you love winter foliage, or perhaps you come from a family of born-and-bred Marylanders. Home in on something that appeals to you and use that as a grounding theme throughout your decor.

Bring in Natural Elements

Winter holidays correspond perfectly with the color schemes found in winter foliage. Bring in some seasonal touches from outdoors to adorn your home. Magnolia, branches, berries and pinecones are easy and inexpensive pops of color. They’ll also hold their shape and color as they dry.

Mix Fresh With Artificial

Keep in mind the safety of your space. Mix fresh greens with artificial and trade them out periodically throughout the season. Opt for battery operated lights and/or candles instead of open flame to keep things cohesive and safe.

Add Extra Coziness

Some of the most heartwarming aspects of the holidays are those tied to family and tradition. Invest in some seasonal accent pillows or a throw blanket to tie together the color scheme of a family space (and to make it extra comfortable for mingling guests). Maybe you have room to create a display of family Christmas photos, or to set out the serving dish that you always used for Santa’s cookies as a child. Elements of tradition keep memories alive and add to the warmth of your home.

These three rooms are perfect examples of how our resident designer, Ronnie, uses these simple tips to decorate three different spaces each in their own style, while still giving a nod to traditional holiday decor.
