christmas decorating FAQs
With so many amazing decorations to choose from, you’ve probably got some questions. In this next section, we’ll do our best to answer them!
Every year, Christmas trends shift and change. This year, it seems that Navy and classic blue will be the Pantone colours! This is great news for homes with neutral tones, rustic accents, or light coloured walls. Navy blue has been influencing the interior design industry all year and you can find it in all sorts of accessories, furniture pieces, paint mixes, and yes, even in Christmas decor. Navy pairs amazingly with white, gold, silver, platinum, rose gold, and even deep red!
Other trending colours include cream, beige, traditional evergreen, stone grey, and rose gold with marbled grey accents. For a feminine touch, rose gold and dusty rose pink or matte light grey tones can easily be used to accent a Christmas garland or centrepiece. Alternatively, to create a unique interior decor touch, natural textured elements like jute and burlap can easily be implemented into traditional colour schemes. Finally, varying shades or matte cream or sparkling light gold can be combined with most traditional red and green themes for a chic yet traditional look.
Typically, Christmas decorations will be put up in late November or early December. This is usually done to coincide with the start of Christmas Advent. However, some people will begin adding seasonal touches as soon as October ends. If your Christmas decor theme is traditional with lots of red and green, we recommend waiting until the end of November. On the other hand, if you’ll be using neutral tones and natural decorative elements, you could really begin slowly transforming your space and adding festive touches gradually starting as early as November first.
If you want to decorate for Christmas simply and effectively, the easiest thing to do is focus on key accent pieces and address the focal points in each room. Homes have different layouts, but most will usually have focal points that are seen from entry angles of the living room, front porch, dining room, and front door. Simply look around each room and identify its most significant feature. The key is to then display a few festive accents in or around these areas to draw the eye.
Don’t forget to decorate outdoor spaces as well. To create easy Christmas touches outside, you can quickly wind lights or a garland around the railing of your front porch in a spiral pattern that’s similar to the stripes of a candy cane. For the front door, a wreath, sign, or seasonal decal can go a long way. You may want to get a fluffy Christmas blanket and matching throw pillow for your living room. Finally, a hot chocolate bar and some festive napkins can be used to totally transform your dining room.
If you want to decorate your tree like a professional, there are a few things you’ll need to do. First, invest in a premium artificial tree. Then, fluff and shape each branch to look full and natural. Next, choose a themed Christmas design scheme and stick to it. This can be a colour scheme, whimsical theme, or something else. The key here is to have a plan. After that, you will want to evenly add lights to your tree. Adding a garland or layered ribbons is also a good ideal. Finally, be sure to symmetrically space out and display ornaments and baubles evenly and in some kind of pattern.
For a bit of DIY Christmas appeal, a wreath can easily be decorated with baubles or lights to match any interior holiday theme. Other fun and frugal ideas include crafting popcorn garlands, making paper snowflakes, and adding red and green touches wherever you can.
A few inexpensive Christmas decorating ideas include adding string lights to the focal points in your home, getting a wreath for your front door, or finding a couple of cheap Christmas throw pillows. You may also be able to find Christmas themed scented candles, which will create an ambience of decadent aromatic festive cheer in your home.
It’s easy to find Christmas decorations for cheap or make your own DIY Christmas ornaments by upcycling materials. Finally, evergreen branches and glass bottles can be upcycled put on display for a chic and trendy touch of holiday cheer. Wrapped Christmas presents under a tree can serve as decorations too.
Remember to include holiday touches on your front porch, patio or entryway as well. It doesn’t cost much to get a garland, wreath, or outdoor decal of some kind to make the exterior of your home look more festive. If you live in an apartment, you may want to get a garland or string lights for your balcony, window frames, or back door.
Every home has natural pathways that will need to be left open for people to walk from space to space. The best places for Christmas trees will usually be away from these pathways.
The goal is to display your tree in a highly visible place without having it get in the way of the flow of your home’s traffic. After all, you don’t want people bumping into your tree and knocking off its garland, lights, and ornaments.
