Use Scent

Candles, incense, and diffusers add scent to any space without overwhelming the décor. It's a simple way to make a room smell like the holidays. Choosing the right candles for each space is a personal preference. Mix and match sizes to create a full scheme or keep it simple with a few of one size.

Focus on Reflection

Holiday lights are beautiful but best kept outdoors. Instead, try bringing extra light into a space by decorating with mirrors, metals, and other reflective surfaces. Shiny décor makes the home feel more open and inviting.

Be Subtle

Some holiday decorations are flashy and showy. Maintain elegance in your style with subtle changes to your décor. Consider switching out your rugs and throw pillows for ones with festive colors like blue, red, green, and gold. If you embrace minimalism, you can update your artwork with seasonal options to make your space look cheerful.

Decorate With Natural Elements

Pine trees are common holiday décor, but you can go further with wreaths and branches. Trees are bulky and potentially unrealistic in some spaces. Bring elements of the woods and winter inside your home when you use pine cones, spruce garlands, and other natural elements.
