The Pink Tinsel Tree is available now. Shop the look at artvan.com.
Bright colors

Evergreen trees are lovely, but why not go unexpected and use a pink tinsel tree instead? Imagine the surprise on the faces of your friends and family as you color outside of the traditional holiday lines. Decorate it in all white, tropical colors or even black ornaments. You could easily leave it as is and simply string lights. Your holiday will be extra bright when you find a way to use vibrant colors.

The Deck the Palms Rug is available now. Shop the look at artvan.com.

Flamingos are iconic—and they’re also the “it” creature of the moment. Make your front door extra festive by adding this whimsical rug. It might be snowing outside, but you’ll feel like you’re on vacation every time you come home.

Shatterproof Ornaments are available now. Shop the look at artvan.com.
Tropical colors

Red and green are classic holiday colors, but add a sense of whimsy by choosing tropical colors for décor, instead. Turquoise, pink and purple ornaments will bring your tree to life. Or choose metallic chargers in tropical colors to add fun to your holiday entertaining.

The Silver and Blue Wreath is available now. Shop the look at artvan.com.

Your front door will set the tone for your holiday décor, so make sure your wreath reflects your penchant for whimsical. It can be as simple as an evergreen wreath with blue and silver ornaments. Or choose a wreath in an interesting shape, such as a square, or in a unique texture, like metal.

Imagine this lovely llama perking up your living room or bedroom. Its colorful tassels and Hawaiian lei help release your inner child and demonstrate that you don’t take life too seriously.

Skull hardware? Why not? Instantly update a cabinet or chest with details that throw caution to the wind and add personality to your space.

The hottest animal of the season is the octopus, and this pillow goes all in with its bedazzled beauty, showing off your trend-setting passion.
