In this article, we have compiled a handful of tips that would help you in realizing your dream Christmas living room. Read on!
Keep it simple
You must be thinking ‘Shouldn’t I put all my resources into creating my once-in-a-year living room?’ How ironic! But, decorating your living room for the holidays doesn’t have to be as serious as lifting a car; just keep it simple.
If your aim is to recreate a Christmas dream wonderland, just stick to the rudiments: A Christmas tree, some garlands, and a few cozy candles. This is the basic living room decor you need. If you want to give your Christmas decor that little bit more oomph, you could always go for one of the real, vibrant evergreen trees out there. They’ll make your home smell amazing too – bonus!
Living rooms differ in size. So really, copying your friend’s decor might be much of a mistake if you are not a pro in converting large scale decorations to small scale ones or visas.
Before heading to the store, make an adequate estimation of the number of your decoration items: how tall should your Christmas tree be? How many candlesticks do you need? Is there enough room for a color palette or some Christmas art? These calculations will enable you to realize the living room decor you visualized. Whatever space you have, make sure your Christmas tree is in the right proportion so you do not end up feeling like a giant next to it.
Asides the cognizance people pay to well-deserving decoration, there’s that extra vibe you add to your living room decor when you become eco-friendly in your decoration. A common approach to a green decoration is through the use of recycled items to create DIY decors.
This holiday might just be the perfect time to show-of your crafty side. Pick up some old books and create some hanging baubles or make a DIY Christmas tree- just be creative! If you hate making things, there are several eco-friendly items out there- beds, cushions, pillows- you name them. Avocado Green review by Trish at sleepdelivered.com is a witness.
Get of a mix of silver and gold
Already have a picture in your head? Such elegance! Try blending dove grey and charcoal shades together with glittery sequin cushions. Update to a contemporary version by adding soft pom-pom throw pillows; such a perfect way of escaping the cold Christmas evenings and making your living room cozier.
To bring in more vigor and ass a little coziness to the atmosphere, swap the bright light for soft candlelight and twinkly fairy light and place your lantern on your mantle pieces.
Joy to the world…the radio has it on repeat. Shouldn’t your home express this joy? Come on; don’t feed me the ‘I-need-to-be-serious-to-get this right’ crap. You had the entire year to be serious; holidays are for play.
Add some touch of this joy into your room. Get some banners that would give your living room the whimsical touch and make you happy. If banners aren’t your thing, if you can find decor that makes you smile, you are doing just right.
