Holiday Home Updates
Prep the Guest Room
If you’re hosting overnight guests, you’ll need to primp up the spare bedroom. Instead of purchasing a whole new set of sheets, pillows, and comforters, top of a freshly made bed with a cotton quilt to give a room a stylish new focal point and an added layer of cozy.
Swap Out Your Throw Pillows
Consider sprucing up the sofa so guests have a comfortable place to gather before dinner is served. A few new throw pillows will do the trick! Choose colors and prints that will remain relevant for the next few months. Metallic palettes can give off just a hint of wintry style, while still coordinating with your existing decor.
A sleek table lamp can make any surface feel shiny and new. Lend ambiance with a neutral-hued porcelain style, or make a statement with a colorful, textural finish. Purchase matching pairs in multiples for a more cohesive look.
Hang New Wall Art
A lot of us avoid hanging new artwork because installing hardware can be a pain. But don’t worry—you can skip this step by taking down some of your older frames and using the same hooks to pop in a replacement that speaks to a more festive style. We love a small gallery cluster!
Stylish Drink Servers
Holiday drinks are a must during a seasonal get-together but building a home bar isn’t always feasible (and not to mention—expensive!) Dish out drinks on a sleek-and-chic serving tray instead. If you have a set of two, you can use one as a drink tray, and the other as a cheese or crudités platter.
