Whenever I am invited to a party or event, I inevitably go out and buy a new dress, jewelry or shoes.  Even if no one else knows, it gives me a certain confidence that I made an effort to look my best.  The same principle can apply to your home.  If you are planning a party or having family and friends over for dinner it is a great time to spruce up your home.  It can be a small changes or large but it will give you that confident feeling.

White Holiday Room

White Holiday Room

To get you started here are some ideas for projects, small to large:

Small

  • Paint – one room or a bunch this can totally change the feel of your home
  • Pillows – living room or family room, this is a great way to update your look without spending a lot.
  • New Lamps – take a look, when did you last change those out and they don’t have to match!
  • New Accessories – again, easy way to update and bring in new trends and colors without spending a lot.
  • Area Rug – Easy way to update a space and to define an area.  And it works as well on carpet as it does on hard surfaces.

Medium

  • Re-arrange your furniture
  • Add new piece or two – a new occasional chair, end tables, switch out coffee table for an  ottoman for a more relaxed feel.
  • Take all your artwork down and re-hang it.

Large

Tackle a space:

  • Powder Room – Great small space to update and it is an easy space to have fun with.  Change the walls, paint or wallpaper, update your light fixture, add or change art and accessories
  • Living Room or Family Room– Invest in a new sofa or chairs, or re-upholstery your existing pieces, change out end tables (don’t be afraid to mix not match), accessories, rugs, window treatments      
  • Dining room – recover chairs, rug, chandelier, window treatments
  • Guest Room – new bedding, headboard, accent pillows, lamps, end tables, art work

Decorating Tips for the holidays:

Tables for buffet –

  • Pick several colors and carry them through your table and home – not necessarily red and green, silver and white are festive options
  • Create different heights on your table with boxes or books under your table cloth.  Gives some dimension to your table-scape.

 

Festive Candles

Festive Candles

  • Use a variety of candle holders – I favor glass and silver, modern and traditional with all white candles.  Same color candles unify your table.

 

Cluster of Ornaments

Cluster of Ornaments

  • Christmas balls add that bling to your table and are a festive and inexpensive to dazzle your guests.   Place in a bowl or clear vase for dramatic impact.
  • Flowers – Again pick one or two colors and carry them throughout your home.  Bunch each color together in variety of vases scattered through out your buffet table and around the house.
  • Fabric –  I avoid expensive table clothes and instead I buy yardage from fabric store which is easier to drape over those different levels.  Can be placed over another table cloth or sheets if the fabric is not wide enough to full cover your table.
