Rustic Luxe 

  • For unexpected elegant style, mix nature-inspired elements such as delicate twigs and birch wrapped candles with high-shine, gold and silver metallics and luxurious fabrics.
  • Surround woodland or ceramic animals with glittery gold and mercury glass trees.
  • Drape greenery on mantels with glass lanterns or hurricanes filled with sparkling ornaments and trinkets.
  • Pair a chunky, wool cable knit throw with silky, beaded and faux fur pillows.

Classic Plaid Reimagined

For a traditional look with a twist, layer in texture by using on-trend tartan plaid pillows, bedding or dinnerware paired with animal print patterns and cozy faux fur fabrics.

Coastal Chic With Pops of On-Trend Blues 

  • Create a relaxed, beach vibe by using coastal elements in whites and creams paired with accents in an array of trending blue hues.
  • Arrange shells, starfish and coral in a rustic wood bowl with touches of greenery and metallic accents.
  • Consider a white Christmas tree adorned with an array of silk peacock blue ribbons and shimmery ornaments.

Stylish Trends To Celebrate The Season

‘Tis the season to add festive cheer to your decor. No matter what holiday you are celebrating, we have some great tips for bringing that special glow into your homes. Happy decorating!

Shimmer & Sparkle
Silver and gold metallics will add chic style to any neutral room. We love the elegance of a mantle or dining table adorned with antique mercury glass candle holders and votives, classic white candles, touches of greenery and white amaryllis.

A Mix of Fabrics and Textures 
Mix and match cozy fabrics and materials such as faux fur blankets, chunky knit throws, quilted velvet stockings, leather poufs, burlap pillows and red plaid fabrics. It’s a perfect way to layer in warmth an luxury to any space.

Rustic Charm
Bring in elements from nature for a rustic look by using fresh evergreen and winterberry wreaths and trimmings paired with pinecones, twigs and fruit. Then pair with nostalgic touches such as embroidered pillows with wintry imagery and vintage designs, plaid dinnerware, ornaments and frames.

Creative Accents
Fill glass bowls and vases with colorful ornaments, candy, nuts, pinecones, pomegranates, kumquats or cranberries then top with a pillar candle for a unique accent. Try recycling wine bottles and use as candlesticks by replacing labels with metallic wrap or a bow. The possibilities are endless!

Staging Tips To Help Keep The Sparkle In Your Home This Holiday Season

Now that the holiday season has officially arrived, there’s no need to consider taking your home off the market if you are planning to sell. In fact, housing inventory is typically low this time of year which means less competition and more serious buyers. Adding just the right amount of seasonal cheer to your home décor could actually be the magic touch to attract buyers. The rule is keep it simple.

Here are some ways to create extra warmth that will enhance your space without detracting from your home’s key features.

1. Add Warmth with Lighting
It’s important to keep lighting décor modest and simple for just the right amount of warmth. For example, rather than hanging lights across every window and doorway, try stringing bright white lights across the fireplace mantel or feature lanterns and vases on an entryway side table.

2. White is Bright
Accessories such as garlands, ribbons, candles, table runners, baskets, wreaths, poinsettia plants, should all stay as neutral as possible to coordinate with existing décor. Different shades of whites mixed with pops of color such as silver, gold, red or green will add a festive elegance to any room.

3. Simple Adornments
Combine natural elements such as evergreens mixed with pinecones for centerpieces that enhance a room and blend well with any wall color or decor style for just the right amount of festive ambiance. Fill a decorative bowl with gold, silver or white balls to add a bit of sparkle.

4. One Christmas Tree
A single, moderately sized tree in a kitchen or living room accessorized with simple ornaments is all that is needed to demonstrate the holiday spirit. A tree that is too large will distract from the room’s features and make the room appear smaller or the ceilings seem lower.
