Holiday Decor: Winter 2013/2014

It's that time of year again. Time to dust off those bins of Christmas decorations and peruse the stores for new items to add to your collection. If you're like me, you like to change it up each year and keep it fresh. This holiday season, the look is muted neutrals with natural elements. Keep your color palette streamlined with just one or two neutrals and touches of metals (Brass!), wood and wool (real or faux). As always with a neutral color palette, keep it interesting by mixing textures. Cable knits, prickly pine cones, and fluttering feathers create warmth and variety.

Here are some great ideas to get you started. It's fun to use these ideas as inspiration and then make them your own in your own space.


Or, for something completely different, consider pastel holiday decor. If you are someone that cannot leave out the color, fear not. Mixing in some soft pastel colors keeps things fresh.

Here are some great examples of using pastels in your holiday decor.

Whatever direction you chose to go in this year, enjoy the season! And don't toss the old decorations that you don't use this winter, put them away, because they will most likely come back around again.
