This time of year can be overwhelming, especially if you’re the host! Starting with everyday tasks, then transitioning from Thanksgiving to CHRISTMAS. Changing out your décor and entertaining areas doesn’t have to make you feel like a BAH Humbug nor break the bank!
Focus on the main areas (Living/Dining) where family and friends will gather the most. No need to go all Griswold Christmas Vacation. Selecting a color palette will help the flow from room to room. We used traditional red, green and white for this Ventura Home in Hatton Place.
Texture and mixing in metallics will give your home a warm and inviting feeling for your guests. Simple swaps could be adding a faux fur throw over the couch, bringing in natural elements like pinecones or just lighting a scented candle.
Now that “Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas…” add in some holiday vignettes. This is a perfect way to show off your collections or family heirlooms.
TIP*** use old candles or apothecary jars filled with Epsom salt as artificial snow.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Ventura Homes!
