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.
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!
