Not Too Late to Get Holiday-Ready
Whether you’re welcoming guests for the upcoming holidays or just keeping to yourself, you might want to get your home ready to match the season. At Blinds & Designs serving Marin County, we have a few ideas for getting your home ready for the holidays—or just the normal days! Read on to learn more.
Decking the Walls
Find creative wall accents that help spruce up the walls. You can mix the type of art you use: both holiday-specific and standard day-to-day décor. Make it unique by looking beyond the big-box store reproductions and considering an original piece or two. You can find affordable original pieces from new local artists on display and for sale at your community council for the arts, small coffee shops, or even local community libraries or centers.
Let Winter Reign
Although the San Francisco area isn’t known for lots of snow and freezing temperatures, when people think about the holidays, they often think winter in the mountains and the coziness that comes with it. Consider adding a touch of that wintery or mountainy feel through rustic décor and mixed fabrics—break out the comfy accent pillows and throw blankets and be sure they have different textures and patterns to create a mountain lodge aesthetic.
Lean on the Light
Creating the cozy winter space can start with the right lighting, such as dimmable LED lights that can warm a room. Also think about candles (either old-school match-lit candles or battery-powered, programmable flameless ones) to set the mood in the evening. And use natural light to your benefit as well! The right window coverings can help set the cozy scene. Made from two layers of fabric that diffuse light and create a warming glow, Sonnette Cellular Roller Shades act as insulation at the window, creating an energy-efficient barrier keeping outside air out and inside air in. Vignette® Modern Roman Shades by Hunter Douglas are available in a cornucopia (pardon the phrasing, but it just makes sense) of fabrics, colors, and textures. Not only do both of these products provide warmth and color, they are safe for children and pets. Remember, there’s nothing more satisfying than coming home to a comfortable space. So, enjoy your holiday home this season, with warm and cozy accents.
