Serve In Style
Guests will be flowing in and out of your home this holiday season and the little details will help you stand out when it comes to luxury holiday decorating. Serve your holiday cocktails in glassware that is festive yet complimentary to your decor. This stunning glass set from ELTE in Toronto will have your guests enjoying their Old Fashioned with a bit of holiday flair. Your table settings will also be a focal point at all of your holiday parties, so this is the perfect part to emphasize the theme you have flowing through your home. Use your dining table as the standout section of your home, with vibrant table runners and marvelous tableware. Spruce up your dining experience with some luxury cutlery, like this beautiful set from Ralph Lauren to add in some designer holiday decor.
Merry and Bright
When most people think of holiday lighting, they envision flashing red and green string lights that cover every square inch of the inside and outside of your home. Use white lights to encapsulate the holiday spirit without overpowering your home with holiday decorations in 2018. You can use a mix of cool tone and warm tone white lights to designate spaces in your home, such as cool tone white lights hanging outside your home to make your home especially bright, but not taking away from the beauty of your home itself. Use warm toned white lights in your home to add a cozier feeling to your home this holiday season. This cozy feeling can also be replicated by adding more candles to your holiday decor, not only will they provide that cozy warm lighting, but it will also allow you to add a soft holiday scent to your home as well. Depending on your decor scheme, you can find opulent candles that add a touch of glamour to your home, like these Balsam and Cedar Votive Set from Crate and Barrel.
Deck The Halls With Winter Greenery
Use the walls of your home as a blank canvas for the holiday season, and bring the outdoor textures indoors. It is common for homes to feature green wreaths and holly amongst the decor, but this year, try adding birch branches to your holiday home decor. By using birch, you can capture the winter spirit while still keeping your design clean and modern. You can use it to top your fireplace mantle, like this option from Restoration Hardware, or you can combine them with other outdoor elements to create the perfect table centrepiece.
O Christmas Tree
A focal point for some during the holiday season is the massive tree covered in holiday decor. Skip the tacky Christmas lights and typical plastic ornaments and bring some sophisticated style to your tree. Cover your tree with glitz and glamour, with glass ornaments like these beautiful snowflakes from Swarovski, or bone china swirled marble ornaments from CB2. A simple yet stunning way to add a bit of creative flair to your home this holiday season is how you wrap your presents. Stick to one remarkable gift wrap print to make everything look cohesive with the rest of your decor. Holiday gift wrap does not need to be gaudy, so check out some beautiful prints like this Rifle Paper Co. gift wrap from The Paper Place.
