- Let the scents inspire memories
Do you relate certain combinations of smells to a friend or parent’s house? You’d be surprised to know the extent to which scents influence our emotions and ultimately, our memories. What better time than the end-of-the-year festivities to cultivate more memories around the house with simple crafts, such as scented fire starters, pinecones, and pomanders? The aromas are an instant indication that the holiday season has arrived. Personalising your home with scents will be sure to influence the positive memories with your loved ones.
- Start from zero
“My usual first step is to completely discard any idea that I’ve used before,” says designer Scot Meacham Wood. That makes perfect sense – celebrating the end of the year should always be unique and exciting. From rearranging the living room entirely so that the main centrepiece, like a Christmas tree, is in an entirely new place to bringing out a new colour theme throughout the house with candles, ornaments, lights, wall decor, the sky’s the limit!
- Decorate your outdoor area
Your outdoor space deserves the same treatment as the indoors. Go all out when decorating your garden with fresh greenery, such as wreaths, garlands, sprays, or other arrangements. This will be sure to turn the space into a winter wonderland. Adding a few strings of lights will spruce up the outdoors – you can get as creative as you’d like with them, too! To top it all off, wrapping your railings with ribbon is so simple, yet sure to accent your space. While the weather may still be frigid, drizzly, stormy, or all of the above, be sure to clean up the season’s debris before the holidays. You may want to consider requesting gardening quotes for last-minute garden services to get everything in order.
The clock is ticking, so now’s as good a time as any to get your decor in gear for the holidays! I do hope you have enjoyed this post on Holiday Home Decor Ideas
