3 Fresh Takes on Holiday Décor

November 17, 2015 12:52 am

(BPT)—Does your holiday décor need a reboot? Take a cue from this year’s top trends, says Kirsty Froelich, design director of The Tile Shop.

"Red and green will always be classic, but when it comes to holiday décor, rules are meant to be broken," says Froelich. "Anyone can use inventive color schemes, fun patterns and smart home updates to create spaces that embrace the essence of the season."

Trends to consider, Froelich says, are ones that blend holiday tradition with modern aesthetic. These include:

1. Festive Florals – Fresh or dry floral arrangements are a simple way to adorn your home with holiday cheer. To switch up traditional evergreens or poinsettia, consider blooms in hues of rich purple, crisp white and funky fuchsia. Place a small arrangement on a bathroom vanity to add warmth and color—perfect for those hosting guests.

2. Beautiful Backsplashes – Think tiling a backsplash is too difficult? Think again. Instantly transforming the look of a kitchen or bar space, installing a fresh backsplash is a relatively inexpensive DIY project that can be completed over a weekend. Finish the project before the thick of the holiday season to really reap the benefits.

"There's no better time to let your home shine than the holidays," says Froelich. "Adding holiday greenery, a few metallic touches and whimsical window updates will make your home feel festive. Now's the perfect time to get that tile project done that's been on the back burner, so you can show off your hard work and the amazing new space to all visitors."

3. Wowing Windows – Don’t overlook your windows when adding holiday touches to your home. Visit your local craft store, pick out a bolt or two of fabric that blends with your holiday aesthetic, and have the appropriate lengths cut. Then simply drape and enjoy!
