Approach your holiday decorating with a specific design strategy – just like you would when decorating your home. You can do this by choosing a theme:

·         Monochromatic (any colour you love – hot pink, black, grey, red etc.)

·         Rustic (faux furs and plaids)

·         Coastal (use an unexpected colour like ice blues)

·         Woodlands (bring the forest indoors)

·         Hollywood Glam (gold and sparkles)

Here are 5 chic, easy decorating tips and tricks  - click on the images below to see more.

STOCK THE BAR

Nothing screams the holidays more than a cocktail!  Show off your liquors, decanters and glassware.

ADD GREENERY

You don’t need a traditional Christmas tree – instead, add some pine sprigs or a wreath.

FAUX FUR

Layer some fuzzy, furry accent rugs to add warmth and winter flair!

DISPLAY YOUR PRESENTS

You’ve already wrapped them why not display them!  Choose an unexpected spot to show off your handiwork.

CREATE A FOCAL POINT

It doesn’t need to be the traditional fireplace mantle.  Select a wall and get creative!
