Five Quick Holiday Updates

Creating a festive setting in your home doesn’t have to involve a complete redo of your rooms. It can be as easy as adding a new accent or accessory. Take a look at these five simple additions that will get you (and your home) into the holiday spirit.


Throw Pillows

Nothing could be easier than tossing a few seasonal pillows onto your sofa, sectional or easy chair. Choose something that coordinates with your décor and create instant holiday cheer.



Wrap your chandelier, wall art or windows with garland and you will transform your room into a winter wonderland. Add bows for a quick pop of color.


Faux Fur

Bring instant warmth to a room with faux fur. Drape a blanket at the foot of your bed to bring a sense of richness. Or use a blanket or pillow on your living room sofa for the feeling of a luxe lodge.



Swap out your lamps or everyday candles for something with a little bit of bling. Silver candlesticks signal that something special is happening. Or add a lantern for the feel of a cozy cabin.


Drape red plaid runners on your dining room table and instantly get into the holiday spirit. This classic look goes perfectly with farmhouse style, giving your room a heartwarming traditional feel.
