Sometimes it’s not about adding an inflatable Santa but creating a holiday look that compliments an existing interior design scheme. I love taking a basic, like a classic off white slipcover sofa, and making it look custom as well as designer done. Timeless home decorating is about using things that never go out of style and that can look chic even when decorating for the holidays!
I challenged myself to take a piece of furniture that many of us have and create two holiday looks for Christmas that can also look fabulous throughout the year. Whether you go all red or all green or mix them together, the end result will be festive yet not too theme-driven.
Brightly colored lighting can actually look like custom lighting when paired with similar colored accessories, so don’t be afraid to go bold. Remember, decorating should be as much fun as the holiday season, so kick back on that perfectly accessorized sofa and toast your ability to style like a pro.
