Make a long-lasting first impression with elegant Christmas accents for your home. Add extra flair to your holiday décor with Balsam Hill’s selection of unique statement pieces.
What are Decorative Accents?
These are signature decorations that bring touches of seasonal cheer to your living spaces. Your home accents and Christmas decorations can complement each other by having a central theme. One way to set a decorating theme is to choose trimmings with the same color palette. Another idea is to pick common elements that tie everything together like linen and plaids for a farmhouse look, or crystals and frosty branches for a winter wonderland theme.
How Can I Use Holiday Accents?
Spruce up key areas of your home to make the most of your seasonal decorations. It's best to start with the major pieces, such as your artificial Christmas tree and ornaments. Then, move on to the finer details of your design.
Here are a few creative ways to display Christmas décor accents:
- Give Guests a Warm Welcome
Place lanterns along your porch steps to create a charming lit-up path. Next, hang an artificial Christmas wreath and matching garlands over your front door for a cheerful greeting. Life-sized figures and twig trees will add a touch of whimsy to your halls, entryways, and staircase landings.
- Make a Big Impact With Small Christmas Accents
Stack or group small decorative accents together for a grand effect. As the focal point of your living room, the fireplace mantel offers the perfect space for your miniature pieces. Line up tabletop trees of varying heights for a woodland-inspired look, or set snow globes depicting classic holiday scenes for a nostalgic feel. If you have extra ornaments, place them in a clear bowl or wire basket to serve as a centerpiece for your dining table or kitchen counter.
- Create a Cozy Lounge Area
Lay down throw pillows and fur blankets in your living room or reading nook to keep warm during cold winter nights. To elevate your lounge area, transform it into a wintry forest with a group of pre-lit accent trees covered in faux snow. Enhance the ambience with the soft flicker of flameless candles or festive glow of Christmas lights.
- Highlight Your Statement Pieces
Spread out your unique decorations to make every corner of your house shine. Give statement pieces the attention they deserve by placing them in areas with high foot traffic and visibility. A miniature Christmas village will lend timeless charm to your windowsills or console tables. Adorn floating shelves with seasonal collectibles like red trucks, Christmas snow globes, rustic barns, and farmhouses.
