The staff at Jenks-based GHD Interiors offers some ideas to decorate for the holidays:
Create holiday centerpieces by filling glass hurricane vases with ornaments or painted pine cones.
Replace artwork above the mantle with a real evergreen wreath.
Hang ornaments from a chandelier with decorative ribbons and loop greenery through the chandelier for a rich look.
Display a collection of Nutcracker or Santa figurines. For impact, keep colletions together.
Use polka-dot ribbon and brightly colored ornaments for a youthful feel. Don’t be afraid to use the unexpected.
Decorate with a winter theme. It will last throughout the whole season, not just Christmas. Ice blue and white with touches of red is a “cool” palette.
Cut ribbon to different lengths and hang ornaments from the drapery rings of a curtain rod for a fun sparkle.
Use antique or vintage Christmas decor and ornaments with rich velvet or lace ribbon to create a classic, nostalgic look.
For homes with bold color palettes, use neutral decorations to accent your regular decor.
Replace your year-round decorative throw pillows with holiday-themed pillows in velvets, sequins and needlepoint.
