We’re in full holiday mode here at the store and believe it or not, we’ve been decking our halls since the end of October when we geared up for the giving season.
It’s always so fun to get the store ready for our holiday shoppers. We stick to a silver, gold and white theme with little splashes of Tiffany blue, green or even pink and our talented buyers and merchandisers create a shimmery wonderland of trees, garland, ornaments and decor.
Of course, we get holiday inspiration on a daily basis from the dozens of talented designers with whom we work and from the design mags and blogs we follow religiously. Here are a few take aways:
Keep it simple:
Bring the outdoors in and use natural greenery wherever you can:
Don’t forget the front door:
Set the holiday stage with a wow wreath on the front door.
And don’t forget the other doors in the house:
Go all out with the lights:
Pile the lights on – either all white or a colorful mix. In this case, more is definitely better. Start at the top and string down, wrapping each branch (and cancel the entire day’s activities because this will take a while!)
Try new traditions:
While blues or greens are natural companions for winter greenery, we love seeing the completely unexpected like this wonderfully happy pink-hued tree from the Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Home for the Holidays showhouse:
What’s your favorite holiday decor? No matter what it is, we hope your halls are happily decked!
