Designer Holiday Glam Tips
This particular look is all about fun glamour, focusing heavily on neutral metallics like silver and gold with texture and a pop of bright color in the form of ornaments, ribbon and throw pillows. This is a great look for someone who wants to change their décor regularly without a complete overhaul. Simply replace the pink elements with another color like blue, purple or green for a completely different look!
Yvonne Shares Her Holiday Décor Tips…
Coordinate the Tree
In the living room, we have a 10′ real tree with gold, white and pink ornaments. I always try to choose wrapping paper that coordinates with the colors and patterns on the tree to create a cohesive look.
Christmas Tree Ornaments Everywhere
Christmas tree ornaments are a very versatile and easy to change decorative item. I used small pink ornaments to dress up the tablescape and stockings. I also used a collection of ornaments in a hurricane glass to add a festive touch to the living room coffee table along with a few well-placed ornaments on side tables. Ornaments, especially simple glass balls, can be very inexpensive making them a great way to add holiday flair without breaking the budget!
Throw pillows are always a great way to update your décor – and they don’t have to be holiday pillows! I added a few gold and pink pillows to carry the color of the ornaments on the tree across the room and that did the trick!
I like to have a little fun with stockings. They don’t have to be traditional and they don’t have to be identical. Create visual interest by choosing stockings in a variety of colors and textures that still coordinate well.
