You can transform your home into a spectacular wonderland of red, green, gold and silver with many different types of decorations. Banners, lights, garland, statues, and a host of other items can turn your home into a warm, inviting place to visit for the holidays.
Now look around the room. Do you have a mirror you can decorate? A flat surface to hold a poinsettia or a basket of seasonal potpourri? Candles, properly isolated to prevent fires, can add a wonderful atmosphere to the room.
Add a medium size Christmas tree in the corner of the room. Decorated with just white Christmas lights. Place under the tree private gifts for your partner and yourself. Make sure to place the gifts under the tree after your kids have gone off to bed. Also, place red, green, gold color and scented candles next to the bed. Cinnamon scented candles has "A greater effect than all other perfumes," says Dr. Hirsch of one of his scent studies that involved 100 men. Another favorite is Vanilla. Its soothing, comforting and oh-so-sweet. Follow these easy steps and you will have a bedroom full of holiday cheer and love.
Carving out a peaceful getaway in your bedroom will help you connect with the Christmas spirit and escape from the hustle and bustle of the season. Author Fran loves sharing her thoughts on home decorating around Christmas. Her biggest suggestion is to look at the floor first and consider red area rugs and oval area rugs.
If you are having an actual getaway for the holidays, you can still create a space in your home that allows you to take a break from the hoopla and find some peace before delving back into it. Carving out that peaceful space might require a little extra effort but will be worth it. First, decide that you will use your bedroom as an oasis, not grand central station for purchases, wrapping and hiding presents. This means you will have to designate another place in your home for these purposes.
Whilst every area of the house may want to be decorated, try and focus on the areas and spaces that will be most lived in a visited by guests in your home. For example the kitchen and your living room. That way you can start with the centrally focused areas and work outwards; again not feeling the need to cover every square inch of your home. One of the most important features to your home is the Christmas tree; perhaps it is the most important. Try not to over decorate your tree, choose your colours, your theme and stick to it.
