Do the holidays have your interior looking a bit ho-ho-ho hum? I know it’s not easy trying to work in red and green into your color palette which is what the majority of retailers seem to push around this time of year so why not ditch the traditional holiday colors in favor of something that is more complimentary to your current colors? Better yet, give your interior a bit of holiday zing and think outside the box with bright vibrant jewel tones like purple, or opulent and glamorous gold! We just wrapped decorating the home of our holiday contest winner and can’t wait to share with you the results, but first we thought we’d treat you to some ideas for making your holiday extraordinary with some unique accessories that could take your room from blah to beautiful in minutes!

Feathered Finery

Who needs a real tree when you can have one made of glorious feathers? Better yet, going for non traditional colors like Purple or Black can make a statement AND fit in with your contemporary design tastes!

Perfectly Polished

I love accessories that are not only eye catching but something that you can use throughout the seasons. This beautiful polished stone wreath is one of those things. It goes great with any earth-toned palette and can be dressed up for the holidays and dressed down for the rest of the year. Think of it as jewelry for your wall!

Don’t Forget Fluffy and Fido!

One of my fun things to do for the holidays is to decorate with unique ornaments in unexpected places. These adorable pet themed ornaments would be so cute hanging from the chandelier in the dining room at varying heights!

Oh Deer!

I love bold focal points in a room and if you have the space, adding a large accessory like these bronze deer can be just the thing to give your holiday interior that “Wow!” factor. How cute would these be with a color coordinated bow to match your look?

Creatively Coordinated

I love the trend of matching textiles for the holidays and what better way than to do unique stockings with a matching tree-skirt? If you want to take it another step, throw in a coordinating throw pillow or draperies to create a beautiful and pulled together look!

Designing your space for the holidays is sometimes as stressful as revamping an entire room. Finding space for the tree and pulling together a holiday look that is complimentary to your existing decor can be challenging. If you have space I often recommend storing some of your furniture to make room for your holiday decor which helps keep things from getting too cluttered. Also, don’t be afraid to reconfigure your furniture. Not only does it help you establish the focal point of your room, it will give you a freshness to the space that you get to revisit after the holidays when you bring your other furniture pieces back into the room. I hope you were able to get some ideas and inspiration for your holiday interior design from this week’s post. Stay tuned for pictures from our holiday decor contest winner’s home. I can’t wait to share them with you! If you have a gorgeously decorated home for the holidays, I hope you’ll share pictures with me on my facebook page. ‘Tis the season to be jolly!
