Holiday Styling in All Communal Spaces
We’re getting ready to reimagine our spaces for the holiday season and one of our favorite ways to get started is to look through what we’ve done in years past, get loads of inspiration, and start collecting new pieces or ideas we may want to incorporate when Thanksgiving hits (or earlier!). Each space brings new opportunities for adding festive touches, cozy textures, and heirloom favorites, and we can hardly wait to deck our halls in the coming months. Here are some of our favorite holiday decor moments to incorporate in every room in the home.
No. 01 | Entryway
There are so many ways to introduce your seasonal decor in the entryway. We love incorporating greenery through wreaths, mini trees, or winter foliage and layering holiday accents like decorative trees, bells, or even styled ornaments. If your entryway has a staircase, the garland options are endless.
No. 02 | Great Room
In the great room or living room, usually, our primary focus is the tree. However, if you don’t celebrate with one or if you have it in a different space, there are still plenty of ways to incorporate the cozy, celebratory feeling of the season. Pile on the layers of pillows and throws, style a wintery candle, and add metallic accents for a little extra dimension.
No. 03 | Kitchen
The kitchen and dining spaces can be easy to forget about when it comes to holiday decor, but it’s a great place to get creative. We love incorporating greenery in unexpected ways, styling jars filled with holiday treats and displaying bowls with seasonal produce.
No. 04 | Dining Room
Aside from the living room, the dining room is perhaps the easiest space to spruce up for the holidays. This is when you get to dig out the rarely used dinnerware. If it’s pretty, we love to leave it sitting out on the table when it isn’t used. Candles and wreaths hung from the back of the chairs are a special touch. Don’t forget about the sideboard either. This is a great place to layer up with seasonal styling.
No. 05 | Bonus Space
While you can stick to your main areas when decorating for the holidays, sometimes it’s fun to add a little cheer to other spaces in the home as well. At the McGee Home, Shea always decorates the mantel in the primary bedroom, the upstairs hallway reading nook, and even the mudroom for some holiday cheer while you do the chores.
