Christmas Series: Holiday Decor

I’ve shared this holiday decor guide to inspire your Christmas creativity for a trend-setting home for the holidays. Here are some of my top picks for holiday decor. This year I’m loving a mix of sophisticated + traditional decor to achieve a festive look at home.

One of the easiest ways to incorporate a seasonal theme is by adding accessories. Mixing non-traditional colors like golds, pinks + blues are a must and can be used in accent pillows, vases, candles or decorative bowls filled with ornament in your chosen colors. Be creative + have fun in the process!

1. Use Vases + Cake Stands To Display Ornaments


2. Mix Sophisticated + Traditional


3. Update Your Color Scheme


4. Incorporate Vintage


5. Add a Fresh Twist to Traditional Holiday Decor


6. Display Your Favorites in Decorative Bowls


7. Warm Lighting
