The Ultimate Guide To Decorating Your Home for the Holidays

December 20, 2023 at 1:50 AM PST

There’s no such thing as holiday spirit without the dazzling decorations to match. Holiday decor allows you to show personality, take risks, and welcome a little holiday cheer into your home. They’re must-haves to really get into the holiday spirit.

Interior holiday decor adds special homey additions that make your space more enjoyable and cozier during the cooler seasons. Plus, there are no rules. Decorate with oversized embellishments, figurines, patterns, and more.  While your home exterior is brightened up by warm white lights, spread some holiday cheer into your home with these tips and decorating ideas.

Interior Holiday Decorating Tips

Before you get started turning your home into the Polar Express, keep these tips in mind for a more convenient and stress-free decorating experience. Remember there aren’t any rules, so don’t do anything that doesn’t inspire you.

Stick to a color scheme that inspires you.

It’s okay to ditch the classic, traditional red and green color combination for the holiday. Choose color schemes that inspire you or add a little dazzle to your holiday theme this year. Opt for a wintery feel and use glints of gold and silver, or create a winter wonderland with all white and hints of blue. There’s no wrong way, and you have tons of color schemes to choose from.

Use greenery wherever you can.

Your Christmas tree is just the first step to adding fresh greenery to your home decor, but don’t stop there. Use greenery to add grounding and calming elements to your space while also implementing texture. Opt for wreaths to hang on your door and windows. They made a great statement, while garlands add pizazz to your mantles.

Decorate every room.

Your living room and dining areas aren’t the only rooms to spread some holiday cheer. Christmas-inspired throw pillows and blankets are the perfect wintry touch to add to your primary and guest bedrooms. Christmas trees, snowmen, and snowflake trinkets are nice additions to your floating shelves or kitchen and bathroom countertops.

Dining Room Table

Eat in style by decorating your dining room table. Make your comfort meals feel extra special by setting up a beautiful holiday tablescape. Create a layered look by mixing and matching patterns. Show off your personality with fresh flowers, table linens, and vintage dinnerware. You can also lie garland across your table as an alternative for a runner like pictured above.


From your dining room to the kitchen, small and subtle decorations will always make your cooking experience better during the holidays. If you have windows in your kitchen, hang a wreath or velvet red ribbon for a classic touch. This is another great opportunity to show your personality whether it be through kitchen towels or trinkets you place on your countertop.

You can’t leave your mantle empty when it comes to holiday decor. It’s the perfect place to hang personalized stockings, light up candles, wrap fresh garlands with pine cones and brighten up the space with string lights and more. This is also a great way to show off figurines such as nutcrackers, reindeer, or snowmen. Relaxing on your sofa just got a little more cozy.


Your bedroom should be a no-brainer for holiday decorations. Swap out your pillows and throw blankets for those that align with your holiday color scheme. Add other special touches like faux greenery on your nightstand or even change your comforter to bring back nostalgic vibes with a plaid pattern.


No matter the size of your bathroom, keep it festive by compiling small holiday-inspired knickknacks on your countertop. Rearrange them in a bathroom tray and keep them on display.
