Candy-cane reds and warm textured throws
Evergreen trees and a reindeer with a red nose
Wreaths with branches and sleighs filled with snow
Decorate for the season without spending the dough
The holidays are here so bust out that rouge
You don’t want to get caught being a holiday scrooge
Spreading holiday cheer throughout your home or business doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. If you are thinking of redecorating for the holiday season, check out our own design center for a few low-cost decor ideas.
Red, green, and gold are staple colors of the holidays and have been for centuries. Red is the color of holly berries which is said to represent the blood of Jesus when he died on the cross. It is also the color of old St. Nick’s robes, candy-canes, and all sorts of holiday treats. But more than that, red is a color of warmth and passion, which is why during colder months the color is seen more frequently. In the picture below we added warmth to the living room by adding a red holiday-themed pillow and red throw blanket to our couch. The “pop” of red and warm texture of the blanket and pillow really give the room a holiday feel without going too overboard.
Green is also a color traditionally associated with Christmas. The most common use of green is on Christmas trees the popular varieties of which are the balsam fir, Douglas fir, and noble fir. These evergreen trees as their names suggests remain green all year round, even when layered with sparkling new-fallen snow. The effect of this is almost magical, which is why we decided to recreate it in our own living room. In the picture above you will also notice three miniature replicas of evergreen trees layered with snow.
Wreaths of Branches
The wreath on the door during the holidays is a common decoration for homeowners. However, many don’t know that making a wreath from scratch is actually very simple. All you need to do is gather the right supplies and holiday embellishments. A variety of Christmas wreaths are available to you. In the picture below you can see our gold leaf wreath on the door of our design center.

Reindeers and Sleighs
Reindeers and sleighs are another great holiday embellishment to add anywhere in your home. We have gone ahead and added a Rudolph and sleigh to the front porch of our design center. You can see them in the photo above. These cute little outdoor decorations become double the fun when at night they become festive Christmas lights. In the photo below you can also see our miniature clay reindeer resting on our bookshelf. Little knick-knacks such as these are little reminders that the season isn’t about how much money we spend but about something far greater: love.
