6 Ways to Make Your House More Luxe for the Holidays

It may be cold outside these days, but your house doesn’t have to be. It turns out that the simplest touches—a sprig of this, a swath of that—are all you need to fill your home with holiday spirit. Here’s the key: Instead of spending a ton of time or money to deck your halls this winter, simply concentrate on making a few smaller spots feel more special. Whether it’s a bench in your entryway, a bare corner in the kitchen, or even just the back door, with just a few stylish switch-ups, you can make your whole house feel festive (in a quietly elegant—not in-your-face, over-the-top—way). The best part: You don’t have to be an experienced crafter or a highly skilled decorator. These little design moves are quick and easy enough for any homeowner to handle. There’s little to no shopping involved either: You can use twinkling lights and shiny ornaments you have on hand, plus beautiful bowls, favorite pieces of art, and even meaningful jewelry you’ve collected over the years. Adding bursts of greenery doesn’t have to mean a trip to the flower shop either—you can easily forage for branches and a variety of leafy greens right in your own backyard. Just keep in mind: To tie all of your updates together, it’s a good idea to stick with a limited palette. (Here, we used soft, earthy neutrals with a sprinkling of metallic pieces and some natural, textured ones woven in.) Ready to give it a go? Try these tips and tricks to help your home look its best—and feel more welcoming than ever—this holiday season.
