Home for the Holidays - Adding Holiday Decor


By Lori Wawczak



When the holidays begin approaching, I find that many of my clients enjoy creating a warm and festive atmosphere in their homes. Here are a just a few suggestions to help you give your home a cozy and warm holiday glow!

Foyers set the stage in every home. It’s where a great first impression can be made. So why not consider dressing up your front door with a beautiful holiday wreath? From a natural evergreen wreath to one featuring beautiful dried flowers mixed with silk greenery, a wreath will definitely help you set the stage for holiday decorating.

Is your entryway inviting? A welcoming, well-lit foyer is a must for every home. Mirrors can definitely help brighten these areas. And a well selected area rug will help add a much needed touch of warmth.

Moving beyond your entryway, family and friends generally settle in your living or family room. The centerpiece of either room is typically a brightly decorated holiday tree. If your room features a fireplace, then mantle decorating is a must. Candles, pine cones, and holiday stockings (hung with care!) will add just the right festive touch to your fireplace area. Typically, furniture needs to be slightly rearranged to accommodate your family Christmas tree. Be sure to keep these newly arranged pieces in a comfortable and conversational grouping.

Naturally, the dining room should provide an attractive and delicious atmosphere for your special holiday meals. A well set, decorative table is a must. Perhaps a holiday linen or lace tablecloth will become the backdrop for a lively -but not overbearing- holiday centerpiece.

If you have houseguests, think of ways you can make their visit with you even more special. Beautify the guest room with just a touch of holiday magic. Create that special welcoming touch using holiday inspired accent pillows on the bed, or drape a holiday throw over a chair.

Above all else, when decorating for the holidays make sure to put your own family’s personality into everything you do. Preparing to welcome family and guests to your home is a lot of fun… it’s also a great excuse to complete that long-overdue decorating project!
