Humans have found joy in post-harvest seasonal decorating since ancient times. In the modern day, decorating our homes for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other holidays has become a popular way to keep our spirits up when the weather gets chillier and the days grow darker. Home decorating is a great way to connect with our kids, show pride in our homes, and build community with our friends, family, and neighbors. So why wait for holidays to do it? Keep reading to find seasonal decorating inspiration for between the holidays from the luxury home builders at Gordon James.
1. Celebrate Fall with Natural Decor
As we get deeper into fall, we start spending less time outside. After a summer of outdoor adventuring, this can be a jolt to the system. By bringing natural elements into your home decor, you can stay connected to the outdoors. Incorporate dried flowers and branches, gourds, and decorative grasses into your existing home decor. Celebrate autumnal color and texture with woven baskets and seasonal curtains, blankets, and pillows made from natural fibers.
2. Embrace the Danish Value of Hygge
Warm up your home this winter with Hygge (pronounced ‘hue-gah’) inspired decor. Hygge is the Scandinavian value of comfort, coziness, togetherness, and simple pleasures. Pack away clutter, and choose simple, thoughtful design elements that promote connection for between and after winter holidays. Using plush, fur-inspired and wool blankets, soft pillows and candles will make your home a wintery wonderland where your family can play games, sip cocoa, and connect.
3. Celebrate Unusual Holidays
A great way to mix up your decor between and beyond the big holidays is to celebrate holidays we don’t tend to commemorate. Add American flags and yellow ribbons for Veteran’s Day. Use silver and gold to celebrate the New Year. Honor Martin Luther King Jr. by decorating your home with white roses.
