Decorating for The Holidays

November 15, 2015 4:22 am Published by Tis the season for eggnog, hearty dinners, amazing confections, cookies galore, and of course, decorations. Just because you live in an apartment doesn’t mean that you have to minimize your holiday cheer when it comes to decorating. The key is to maximize the areas that you do have and get creative with some space saving ideas. The first obstacle is a tree. This Christmas staple tends to take up a large amount of space and can require the rearrangement of all of your furniture. Instead, use a blank wall or window to create a 2D tree. Use paint safe tape of different colors to create the illusion of a tree and a place to put the gifts like this one on Pinterest. You can also add an element of texture to your tree by making a tissue paper tree like Curbly does. Each option will save space while giving a fun and modern look. Have some fun with your railings, doorframes, and window frames. Line them with garland and lights to give the feel of the holidays without taking up too much space. Another thought is to dedicate a full wall to lights. Walls provide the perfect opportunity to get festive while still keeping your livable space clear of holiday clutter. For some inspiration, check out these festive ways at Home and Furniture Decoration. With the tree, garland, and lights up the holiday feeling is nearly perfect. The last, yet perhaps the most vital, element is that Christmas scent. It’s often difficult to describe, but once you catch a whiff of the sent of the holidays, it automatically generates magical memories from Christmas past. A great method to achieve the perfect perfume is found on the Lulu & Georgia blog where they combine the fragrances of cinnamon, orange, rosemary, and cranberries in a method that will make sure each nook and cranny of your home carries the festive fragrance.
