For interior stylist, Ryan, decorating for the holiday season is all about finding the right balance between nostalgia and cozy. He shared some of his favorite tips for making your home feel joyous and bright from the moment guests enter until it’s time to turn in for the night. Let’s check them out!

Holiday Decorations

Tip 1. Make a Good First Impression

Putting a festive wreath on the front door is an easy way to help anyone get into the holiday spirit from the moment they set foot on your doorstep. They provide a merry mood from the get-go, setting the stage for all that’s inside.

Don’t be afraid to style the wreath or get creative with multiple wreaths.

Consider using a holiday swag for a less traditional, more natural look. It’s a great way to bring more personality to your front door.

Tip 2. Invest in Quality and Get Cozy

Think about picking up decorations you’ll be able to use year after year instead of ones that’ll end up in the landfill when the holidays are over.

Create a cozy atmosphere you’ll want to snuggle up in all season long by using items like decorative pillows, colorful throws, and super-soft bedding.

It's okay to mix patterns, plaids, and stripes. A pop of color and textures can also add a fun and festive touch.

Tip 3. Go for the Live Tree

The way the scent of a freshly cut tree fills the home is pure nostalgia, and it helps to create a cheery atmosphere. They’re also all unique, and the right tree can bring a lot of character to your space. Don’t have space for a full tree? Consider a tabletop tree or festive centerpiece.

Collect and use ornaments that connect to special memories, such as a trip you’ve taken or something from your childhood.

A tree skirt is a simple way to add a pop of color and really highlight your tree.

Tip 4. Don’t Forget the Stockings

There’s something special about walking into your living room and seeing a mantle or shelf full of stockings. They bring a sense of festivity and giving, plus, they’re fun to both fill and open up.

Personalizing stockings through designs and monograms adds a nice personal touch.

Have some different sized gifts sticking out of the top and hide the best gift in the toe to build anticipation.
