You may have noticed that my “Love List” on the sidebar was injected with some holiday spirit. When it comes to holiday decor, I go the
cheap classic route: While the decor itself might change from year to year, I tend to gravitate toward the same color scheme (gold, silver, white, red). That way, I can still change things to look fresh and different, but keep my budget in check; after all, I only have so much to spend each year, and I’d rather use the money for great gifts instead of buying a whole new color scheme for the table, mantle, tree, etc. There wasn’t enough room on my sidebar for all of them, so here are a few other items I think would make great additions to my decor collection:
White, Silver, Gold
1. Metallic napkins, $28 (set of 4)
2. Starry crown, $44.00
3. Twig candleabra, $99
4. Bronze Santa & snowman, $17.95 each
5. Gold pears vase filler, $13 (sale)
6. Metal rocking horse, $29.99
7. Glitter snowflakes, $25.20 (sale)
1. Watu kwa amani 20″ pillow, $39.95 (sale)
2. Peppermint tree skirt, $45
3. Red cut glassware, $58 (set of 4)
4. Jinglemonkey, $9.99
5. Felt tree, $7.99
6. Tree skirt, $69.99
As you can see, a simple color scheme can still make a great holiday impact. It’s lower maintenance since you don’t have to run all over town for the perfect teal to replace that broken candle holder from last year; it’s also fun since you have to get creative to reuse the same decor in a new way. Plus, if you feel like adding a new color to the mix, like a pop of orange, you can easily do so by using it as an accent color with the white/silver/gold mix as a neutral base. You can invest in pieces that transition with a variety of styles, but still keep things at a lower cost.
What’s at the top of your decor list this year? Do you prefer neutrals, or to fluctuate with trendy colors year after year?
