Embracing The Desert’s Beauty
A desert holiday is a beautiful and unique experience, as many residents of the American Southwest have found. If you are living or visiting a desert climate for the holidays, you could easily embrace nature’s palette as your inspiration for decorating this year. The muted russets, oches, and deep greens of the land and plants are a great source of inspiration. Many people have taken to decorating their saguaros, yucca, foxtail agave, and aloe vera plants in their yards with lights and ornaments that bring the festivities to the outside. The beauty of living in the desert is how low the night temperatures drop, giving you an excuse to sit outside by a fire in the evenings and still enjoy the warmer temperatures during the day.
Oceanside and Nautical Holidays
If you live on the ocean, you might have less of a tropical climate and more of a beachcomber or nautical feel to your home. If this is more your style, it might be fun to embrace the sun-bleached white of sand dollars, sea stars, and driftwood rather than icicles and snowflakes. You can play up the color palettes of white and seafoam with a hint of gold for a beach-feel, or embrace a larger array of red and white in a nautical style for the holidays. You can easily take decorative lanterns as your centerpieces and style them with regional-inspired accessories to embrace the climate you live in.
