The Design Matters Home Team hosted a fun, festive and informative workshop on Holiday Decorating at the Mountain High Appliance showroom this past week. This workshop was the second out of three holiday oriented workshops to get you inspired for the holidays.
Led by Helly, the Team shared many valuable tips for bringing sophistication, sparkle, creativity and a little humor to your home this holiday season. Guests were treated to delicious treats from the Mountain High kitchen and beautiful examples of the Design Matters’ vision for making your holiday décor unique and affordable.
A celebration of the rich colors and bountiful foods of autumn is the cornerstone of a beautiful Thanksgiving table and the centerpiece of Helly’s tips for decorating this fall. To give this traditional look a twist, incorporate metallics by spray painting pumpkins and gourds in silver, copper or gold (the fake versions take paint beautifully and last year-to-year). Add flowers in deep colors, like chrysanthemums, for contrast. Amber glass is also a beautiful compliment to the fall colors and brings in a retro touch—an important trend this season.
When thinking about the winter holidays, resist the urge to over-do it. Less is more: you can have a festive home that is still a peaceful retreat for you and your family by editing your holiday décor. Pick a single theme and use it throughout your home; it can be a color (again, metallics are a fun trend), shape (think round Christmas balls) or item (repeating a winter icon, like the snowy tree).
By being selective with the items you display, you can keep your holiday collections fresh by packing some accessories away for a few seasons and revisiting them when you are ready for a change. Also, when you pick a theme it is easier to shop the overwhelming holiday displays at your favorite stores. You will know just the color, shape or item you want and being decisive will save time and money.
Below are the five themes we highlighted in the workshop. All will remain on display in the Mountain High Appliance showroom in Louisville Colorado through the holidays. Stop by and check them out!
