Subtle Holiday Decor for Your Home

Holiday Living RoomI don’t know about you but I love the idea of making your home reflect the holidays in a completely subtle way. Sometimes it’s so easy to get caught up in it all, that you want to decorate your place in a highly over the top holiday scheme. Believe it or not it doesn’t have to be that dramatic.

Think about just making your living space feel cozy. Then pop in a couple of seasonal pieces and it’s that easy. You can absolutely use the decor you have to make your home reflect what’s going on around you outside. Or in my case seeing as I am in LA, what’s not going on around me. It was 85 degrees today!

This board here was created for a young couple’s living room space designed entirely around the art you see from Erynn Richardson. I’ve recently become obsessed with her work. All of the pieces included here are serene and beautifully eclectic. In order to make this place work for the holidays I wanted to include 3 simple elements.

Mid-Century Faux Fur Accent ChairFirst, nothing screams out cozy to me like this amazingly fluffy chair you see here. This piece from Chairish is totally unique and lovely. This chair absolutely screams winter to me. It looks so comfortable and it really is kind of perfect. I don’t believe that everything needs to be red and green. I think you can enjoy the holidays in whatever works for you. For me, this bright white chair is not only a harmonious pairing with everything around it, but it’s such a wonderful element to represent the snowy weather we wish we had here.

Second, I added a wonderful little ‘Fa La La’ pillow, because it clearly makes a huge difference. Lastly, I added a beautiful seasonal flower arrangement. Notice the succulents in the arrangement. My favorite of course. I do believe flowers are one of the best ways to celebrate the holidays. Just use an arrangement that works for you and put them in a perfect little vase. Voila. You have created a setting that is very seasonal and still incredibly unique.
