Now that December is finally here, the Christmas countdown is officially on—and if you haven’t already begun, the time to deck the halls is now. Not sure where to begin? Start with one of our most searched-for holiday decor items, steal some inspiring #MyHolidayStyle tips from our Insta-friends below, et voilà!
Deck the Shelves à la @mstarrevdesign
The kitchen can often prove challenging when decorating for the holidays—what with the need for functional counter space and all—but don’t let that deter you from getting festive! Elegantly embrace the season by draping cedar garlands over open shelving for an unexpected pop of holiday cheer.
Create a New Collection à la @residenciaoficial
We may be biased, since this snap is of the festive fireplace in our very own NYC outpost of The Studio, but we still think this look has universal appeal. Recreate it at home by hanging an assortment of eucalyptus and boxwood wreaths above your fireplace, and finish off with a coordinating garland casually draped on the mantel.
Celebrate with Silver à la @honestlywtf
There’s no better time to bust out your finest silver and china than the holidays! So why not set a simple spread that lets them take the spotlight? Set a bare table with white linen napkins, your finest silver and china, simple greenery, and plenty of wineglasses!
Channel a Rainbow Collection à la @leeowensdesign
One of the many perks of investing in quality handcrafted or handblown-glass ornaments? Being able to pass them on as treasured family heirlooms throughout the many Christmases to come. Bonus points for amassing a unique, colorful collection that can be mixed and matched (and admired) by loved ones with varying tastes and styles.
Go All-Out Green à la @jacinfitzgerald
There’s no doubt that the Christmas tree is the most universally adored holiday decoration of all, but why let your tree have all the fun? We love the layered look of this festive dining room, complete with a garland-draped mantel, a bough-adorned iron chandelier, and the requisite tree—made modern with all-white ornaments and a cozy sheepskin-swaddled base.
Add Some Festive Flair à la @ellivenstudio
We love a garland pretty much anywhere in the home (Banister? Check. Floor mirror? Check. Four-poster bed? Check!), but sometimes it can use a little spicing up—especially when you actually have one in every room (guilty!). Try it yourself by adding ribbons, pinecones, and whatever else feels festive to your store-bought greens, to create a look that’s pretty and personalized.
Embrace Simplicity à la @bradytolbert
Craving something simpler this holiday season? While we love a grand gesture or an unabashedly glamorous maximalist moment, there’s also something to be said about making a thoughtfully simple statement with your holiday decor. Case in point? This effortlessly elegant decoration, where trailing ribbons coordinate with the seasonless sage hue of the door and the colors of the stair tiles perfectly.
