Today we welcome back Dana Wolter of Dana Wolter Interiors to share some of her favorite ideas for the holiday season.
This time of year can overwhelm many of us because, let’s face it, there’s nothing subtle about the holidays. I get it. During the holidays, there seems to be a “more is more” attitude, and this can be especially true where decorations are concerned. Often, though, less is really more, especially for holiday decorations at home. I love adding texture to create dimension in a space, and natural materials such as holly, magnolia, Fraser fir and birch wood are great materials to use at home when decorating for the holidays.
And, you don’t necessarily have to have a traditional Christmas tree to feel “decorated.” Below are a couple of Christmas trees I created in my own home a few years ago. As you’ll see, even one made out of simple sticks can make a statement.
Here are a few other images that caught my eye and inspired me by their simplicity.
Consider using fewer, well-executed decorations at home to give yourself more time to reflect on family, friends, and the real meaning of Christmas.
Thanks for these great ideas, Dana! We were so inspired by your suggestions, we found a few more to add to the mix here, too:
