Decking the Halls with Holiday Warmth
Is there anything better than a crackling fire, the smell of a fresh Fraser fir and Christmas music playing in the background? The holidays are a time to fill your house with warmth and all the things that remind you of home. We love opening the boxes of nostalgic decorations each year and continuing special family traditions. Mixing in some new touches with those meaningful pieces helps to keep the holidays fun and fresh!
There's just something about classic colors during the holidays. Rich crimson, snowy white and bright evergreen accented with shimmery silver touches are the quintessential Christmas palette that never gets old! Weaving a simple strand of white lights through your garland creates a relaxing glow when you dim the lights for a cup of cocoa.
A roaring fire will give your holiday parties a cozy feel, plus that toasty smell is everything! Stop by Trove and pick up one of our iron firewood storage options to create a gorgeous display for your hearth.
Swap out the usual centerpiece on your coffee table or ottoman for something a little more fun during the holidays. A glittery hurricane wrapped with sugared cranberries can take you all the way through the winter. Our painted canvas Santas add a cheery touch to any table or shelf!
When it comes to creating a welcoming space for your guests, your furniture pieces are just as important as the addition of festive decor. Maybe this year that means finally buying that comfy sofa you've had your eye on, or maybe it's simply re-arranging your space to create a more effortless flow for conversation.
Each room in your home can have its own tones and textures, especially during the holidays. Switching from bright traditional shades to complementary muted hues in an adjoining space is a great way to mix it up. Try playing with new colors this year like the sage, plum and shimmering bronze we used here for something a little different.
Flameless candles are a great way to add an intimate flickering feel to your dinner table and a simple sheet of muslin or burlap can create a classic table runner that highlights your centerpiece.
Iced garland and berries aren't just for the mantle. We added some to both sides of this archway for a wintery touch and carried it through with two tall, skinny evergreens to add height.
Decorating your home for the holidays is just as much about the look as it is about creating a space for guests to feel welcomed, warm and comfortable. Whether you're looking for furniture to complete your room or some little finishing accents, stop into Trove and let us help you create a home both you and your guests will love this season.
