It's hard to believe, but we are officially IN the holiday season. Yes, Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK (eek!)
What are your intentions for the holiday season this year? Do you want to entertain more? Do you want to create a relaxing space to festively enjoy the snow (if you get any - I don't!) and some spiked hot chocolate (maybe that last idea is just me)?
So often, we don't start with the WHY in our decorating projects, be they seasonal or otherwise? But it's so important. For example, if you want to entertain more this season, you'll need a festive look for your home that's ready to party - think a celebratory bar cart and a stocked fridge.
Likewise, if you want to get cozy, you'll want to load up on super soft blankets and excessive amounts of pillows.
Once you have your intention, you can think about ways to decorate for the holidays that truly reflect your personal style. For example, I don't do red or green or ANYTHING country-chic. That's just me. What that means, however, is that my pre-made decorating options are limited. I want a clean, modern holiday look. Luckily, it's easy to get creative and repurpose non-traditional items with a more festive flair.
Below are some of my favorite looks for modern holiday decorating.
