Chic Holiday Decorations for Every Room of Your Home

The time to break out the holiday decorations is fast approaching (or for some early birds, it’s already here), so we’ve gathered some of our favorite ideas for every space, from the entryway to the living room to the kitchen, to help get you excited for the season.

Style Your Entryway

Beginnings are as important as endings. The first impression—that split-second, almost-unconscious moment of a mood being felt—carries you and your guests through the entire celebration. So begin with affection, humor, warmth, and verve.

If there’s one place to truly let your holiday flag fly, it’s the spaces where your guests arrive. Inject your entry with all the humor, personality, spirit, and beauty you can muster.

Why stop at the mantel? Hang stockings (exquisitely designed ones, of course) along your entry stairs too—pure fun.

Style Your Living Room

Generally the most already-styled room in the house, the living room shines after even a few turns of the holiday-volume knob. Change up your usual arrangements with thoughtful additions: a spectacular bouquet of flowers, an infusion of greenery, baubles, ornaments, even a gorgeous scent. Cue the lights, sink into a cushy sofa, and enjoy.

There are easy ways to switch up your look for the holidays. It isn’t always about reconfiguring the entire room; the right additions make a statement all their own. When it comes to ornaments, throw caution to the wind and consider every corner—add small statements to the grand gesture!

Style Your Kitchen

Everybody gathers in the kitchen anyway, so make guests feel welcome and catered to with gestures grand and small: Swathe your cabinets in greenery or holiday lights, set out fresh flowers—and of course, offer plenty to nosh on.

It’s a busy, bustling place, so give the eye a moment of charm and delight. Go small with little touches or all-out with serious swags of greenery.
