The Holiday Home

If you are planning on hosting any family gatherings this holiday season, you know that time is of the essence! In this blog, Ellecor Interior Design explains how you can use your existing decor in order to make you home holiday ready!

Use What You Have

Before you run out to the store, take a look at your existing decor. Look for rich colors, and pay close attention to any decorative pieces you have that have motifs like elk, deer, pine trees, cardinals, snowflakes, or berry bushes. You can use those pieces to help create your overall holiday vision.

Pick A Color Scheme

If you are more drawn to icy blues and bright whites than greens and reds, use them! You will probably have more of those colors in your year-long decor anyway. Do not be afraid to experiment with the addition of silvers and golds to brighten any room. Metallic surfaces reflect candlelight and can add to the overall ambiance you are building.

Create Calm

In a season of chaos, you and your guests can both appreciate a clean and calm environment. Try using candles and lamps in the place of overhead lights. This will give any room a cozy feeling. If you have little ones who might be roaming about, it is a good idea to use flameless candles that have LED lights in them to make them fire safe. Use lots of folded blankets to change the color scheme of your standard furniture. Remember that your friends and family will be happy to be with you for the holidays and that any environment you create will be wonderful!

Decorate Your Door

When you’re transforming your home for fall, you should start with your front door! Adorn the entrance to your home with a fun fall wreath. Natural elements such as vibrant flowers and autumn leaves are a perfect way to add fall colors to your wreath. You might even consider painting your door a fun festive color for the season.

Embrace the Colors of the Season

Autumn has such a rich palette of vibrant colors, which means you have so many colors to choose from when decorating your home. You don’t have to go with the traditional fall colors either. If cooler colors fit your style better, then go that route. There are decor options for every palette!

Bring Out The Pumpkins

Pumpkins are such a classic decorative piece for the fall season.  They make an excellent display for your front porch or as a centerpiece indoors. You can opt for real pumpkins for your outside decor and artificial pumpkins in your home. You can buy them in all sorts of fun fall colors!

Show Your Mantel Some Love

Your mantel is a focal point of your living room, so it deserves a little love this fall season. You can add some fun leafy garlands, some colorful little pumpkins, or several small potted flowers in the sunset colors of autumn. Whatever you prefer, make sure that your mantle really pops, because it will draw your design together and capture the eye of your guests.

Use Colorful Centerpieces

Centerpieces are a great way to add some color and festivity to any room. It could even be something as simple as pumpkins and a couple of fall scented candles on your coffee table. Or you could make an arrangement with brightly colored fall leaves. Either way, a centerpiece is an easy and fun way to spruce things up in your home!

Bring Fall to Your Walls

There will be no shortage of fall wall hangings during the fall season. So, take down some of your year-round wall hangings and spruce up your decor with some autumn themed wall decor. Feature those warm fall colors. Your home will feel so cozy!
