The holiday season is the perfect time to infuse your living space with an air of opulence, luxury, and sophistication. Anyone can transform their space; it’s all about thoughtful selections to make it perfectly “you.” Here are our best tips on elevating your holiday decor and creating a truly elegant ambiance that will leave your guests in awe this holiday season.

Your Color Palette Matters:

Opt for a refined color way; classic combinations such as gold and white or burgundy and champagne can elevate the overall aesthetic. Consider metallic accents to add a touch of glitz and glamor – shimmering gold ornaments or silver candle holders can be both festive and luxurious. 

Quality Over Quantity:

Pare down your decorations and focus on quality pieces rather than overwhelming your space with an excess of items. Invest in high-quality ornaments, candles, and garlands that you truly love. A few statement pieces can have a more significant impact than a plethora of smaller, less expensive items. Higher quality items will last for many holidays to come! 

Rich Fabrics and Textures:

Introduce textures to your decor with velvet, faux fur, or satin. Drape velvet ribbons over your tree, add seasonal plush throw pillows to your sofas, or use a faux fur tree skirt for an extra touch of texture. Don’t be afraid to mix & match textures to create an interesting and warm atmosphere!

Candlelight Ambiance:

There’s nothing quite as elegant as the warm glow of candles. Choose tall, slender candles of varying heights in metallic holders for a refined, upscale look.Tapered candles are trending right now and unique shapes and colors are the name of the game! 

Fresh Wreaths and Garlands:

Bring bright greenery and natural elements into your home with fresh garlands and wreaths. Bonus points if they are from our good friend, Brian at BluHen Designs! Greenery woven with dried citrus or berries brings a fresh approach into your home, and they make an excellent gift!
