How to Cozy Up Your Home for the Holiday Season

Thinking of ways to warm up your home decor for holiday hosting?

These 5 tips will help to get you started! Hosting during the holidays can be stressful, but if prepared, you’ll be able to fully enjoy the food and company. A few added details make all the difference!

1 – Candles : Warmth, light, and ambiance. Any candles displayed on your table while food is being served should be unscented, while having scented candles around the rest of the home is great way to make any room in the home feel cozy.

2 – Bring nature indoors : For before and after the holidays, simple house plants and flowers can make big impact, like lilies, green hydrangeas, and orchids. For the big holiday events, a pot with birch logs, evergreen clippings, and berries adds a warm touch.

3 – Stick to a colour scheme : For some, a neutral palette with pops of red and green is a go-to option. Others may choose to have pastels or metallics as their main focus. If you’re not sure, a natural scheme with browns and warm beiges will always be a classic choice.

4 – Add extra lighting : There are several options to add extra lighting in areas and corners that don’t get as much love. Tall pillar lights stacked on top of old books, lanterns with candles, and string lighting can all do the trick.

5 – Think small : It really is all about the details, and this way it will be easier to add a touch of the holidays into every room. Whether it’s a seasonal candle in the washroom, or some natural elements added to the window ledges, your guests will notice these extra efforts and feel more in the holiday spirit.
