With Christmas around the corner, it is time to start planning the decoration of your home. It is up to your choice whether to opt for modern techniques and ideas or look to traditional decoration elements. However, you can do something even better: use your creativity to mix-and-match tradition with new trends and give your home a fantastic new look for the holiday season. Consider Christmas lighting; lights brighten the space, beautify it, and enhance the ambience.
A smart concept is to choose a theme and keep to it throughout your entire home.
Start with the entry area and create a welcoming atmosphere.
Choose lighted letters in colors that match the décor and spell out a greeting; another great idea is to use white spray paint dusted twigs and decorate them with droplights; this unexpected approach adds festivity and warmth; furthermore, the crystal icicles reflect extra light and bring a touch of style and visual appeal.
Apply lit garlands, string lights, or pre-lit ornaments, such as snowflakes and stars to decorate the staircase for a dazzling effect.
Consider that battery-operated LED lights come in a variety of options to meet all your needs and requirements. Different versions of the traditional wreath, including pre-lit ones, always work well for the entry area and the staircase.
Try with unconventional items for visual interest; extra large color crepe paper ornaments or arrangements of oversized shining orbs are a great idea.
The fireplace and the Christmas tree are expected centerpieces for the holiday season; focus on their decoration to personalize your home.
Place the tree in a spacious area and use your creativity to make it sparkle; try with lighted ornaments for a touch of charm; use accent lighting to accentuate the decoration and draw attention to it. As for the fireplace, the mantelpiece is the perfect spot to place stunning arrangements that add style and elegance to the space; glittering candles, containers with glass ball ornaments and strings of light, beautifully adorned felt stockings, and lit pinecones are all great options.
Try with a lit garland of exotic colored beads for a stunning look.
Use string, fairy, or mini-lights to repurpose mirrors and glass doors for extra charm and drama.
Incorporate candles of different shapes, colors, and fragrances; and the more, the better; their twinkling light creates a feeling of warmth and coziness.
Icicle lights, lanterns, and lit swags also work well; generally, use different lighting options to embellish your home and add a festive feeling for the holiday season.
