Decorating For The Holidays

With Halloween barely behind us, and Thanksgiving a mere 3 weeks away, the season for entertaining is quickly approaching. Rather than going for predictable holiday-specific decorations, I’m suggesting dressing your home with furnishings and accessories that can potentially be used all year round.

Create color palettes inspired by foliage, fruits, and vegetables: eucalyptus green, corn yellow, pumpkin orange, cranberry red, and red-yellow-green peppers to name a few. For a more neutral look, try wheat, pine cones, and gourds. Accent with jewel tones like sapphire blue, topaz, amethyst, citrine, and peridot. 

Candles are my favorite accessory - they're inviting, create a romantic mood, and provide flattering light. I love combining them with bowls of fruit (real or faux) or floral arrangements (real). It's an easy way to create a very luxe look. 

Put arrangements in every room - bathrooms included! 

Accessories can be found anywhere - from the local thrift store to the local hardware store to a high end boutique. 

This time of year, I bring out my grandmother's crystal, linens purchased on my travels overseas, and flea market sterling serving pieces. It doesn't matter that the patterns don't match.
