HOLIDAY DECORATING

The Holiday Season is upon us once again!  It is a time for celebration, to be with family and close friends while enjoying a delicious meal and the spirit of the Holiday.  It is also, the season of Winter, the time of year when days get shorter, nights get longer, and the cold air arrives.  We live more inside where the comfort of a warm fireplace and a cup of hot cocoa stir the imagination and bring on nostalgia for days gone by.  It is a chance to slow down for a moment and reflect on the year that has just passed.  The tradition of Holiday Decoration is something to look forward to every year and a chance to bring that Holiday Spirit into your living space.  It is time to honor traditions while creating new ones. holiday-season-1So, how do you bring holiday cheer into your interior space?  You can focus on just one or two rooms or your entire home, starting at the front entryway and working your way through all your spaces.  Your personal taste and space itself will dictate how elaborate your holiday décor will be.  Many of us have an arsenal of decorations at our disposal, some passed down from family and others we have collected along the way.  Do not be afraid to mix traditional décor with modern, old with new.  Using the colors of the season is always a great idea; the traditional red, gold, and green, along with white which reflects the general winter theme of snow.  Décor can be as modest or elegant as you want, and different rooms can have different Holiday themes. holiday-season-2There really is something comforting about pulling out a Christmas tree ornament that use to hang on your Grandmother’s tree and now is on yours. Bring in the holiday colors with ornaments, stockings on a mantle, a decorative wreath, custom pillows, and blankets, or custom drapes, seasonal art-work, a mix of old and new, pulling out the old decorations that help you remember the past as well as newer pieces that just make you happy. holiday-season-3The Holidays are about feeling peace and love, and the comfort of those you are closest to.  Your holiday décor reflects what the holiday means to you and the feeling you want to create in your home.  It is a combination of all the traditions you want to honor as well as the new you want to include.  Have fun with your Holiday decoration and remember, there is no “right way” to do it; if it makes you happy then it’s right.  Happy Holidays!
