Swap textiles for added coziness
One of the easiest ways to transition your home for the holidays is to swap everyday textiles for more festive options. Think luxuriously thick, woven textures that read undeniably cozy, such as wool, bouclé, shearling, faux furs, cable knit and of course, chunky throws. Similarly, lean into timeless winter patterns like plaid, buffalo check, and gingham, along with a scattering of holiday-inspired prints to bring a seasonal twist to any space.
Pro tip: let your overarching home palette and style guide your holiday color scheme, whether rich and traditional or light and bright.
Keep it chic
There are so many ways to decorate for the holidays beyond the usual trappings of Santa's red and green workshop. Borrow a note from the Parisians with a timeless white, black, and brass foundation, decked with plenty of evergreen, twinkle lights, and the glow of candlelight to capture the spirit of the season.
Unexpected accents like leopard print and disco balls add a layer of fashionable festivity, just waiting to toast the new year.

Borrow inspiration from nature
Simple garland and wreaths are a time-honored designer favorite for holiday decor. There's something so lovely and cabin-inspired when you just feature the unadorned evergreen -- sans pinecones, berries, and bows.
It looks as if you foraged it from a winter wonderland (even if it is faux). Drape liberally over mantles, stairs, consoles, mirrors and more.
Deck the table
Create a swoon-worthy holiday tablescape that can seamlessly transition from Thanksgiving through the New Year.
A designer pro tip: consider a more unexpected palette, like soft dusty blues, crisp ivories, and deep greens – accented with antique brass. Weave in a plaid runner and tapered candlesticks for an elevated scene, and feature a mix of cyprus and hydrangeas for a winter wonderland aesthetic that mimics snow on pine trees.
Let presents double as decor
'Tis the season for giving, so elevate your wrapping to spotlight decor-worthy gifts. You don't have to go crazy -- simply start by selecting 2-4 wrapping papers that complement your holiday decor palette and style.
I personally love the wide range of designs at The Inside by Havenly -- from classics to animal prints, there's something for every design aesthetic. Simply add ribbon (consider a wide velvet for a dramatic twist) and stack for a lovely holiday vignette.
