Holiday Decorating Tips

December 17, 2019

Our showrooms in Newport News and Virginia Beach are our homes away from home. In decorating our offices this year,  Jessica, one of our designers, decorated our offices this year, she applied the same principles she recommends for your home holiday decor.

Keep it Simple

“Less is more” is Jessica‘s design motto when decorating. Rather than adding to your decor, she recommends replacing your everyday accessories with holiday items. She even replaced some of our wall art with affordable holiday art she found on Smallwoods.

Adding to your current decor will create clutter, so pack up the pieces that can be replaced by your favorite holiday trinkets. Not only does this give you a clean look for Christmas, but your everyday tchochkes will have a fresh feel when you unbox them in January.

Holiday Decorating Tips Color Scheme

Color Palette

Her next suggestion is to pick a focal color and create your holiday scheme around it. The color you choose should complement your existing decor (such as the color of your walls, furniture and window treatments). Jessica chose dark green primarily because it’s trending this season, but it also happens to be Hatchett’s company color. She built our holiday color scheme around dark green with accents of white and black. Black is still very hot right now, and you should keep an eye out for everything dark green in 2020.

The richness of this green looks very sharp against our crisp white walls. It also pairs well with the natural wood tones of our existing decor. Even Chip and Joanna are on board with dark green for their Christmas wrap collection.

Presents Under the Tree

Which brings us to Jessica’s third suggestion of continuing your holiday color scheme in your gift wrap. The presents under your tree will double as decor and create a cohesive look to your holiday design.

It’s Okay to Bend the Rules

Your holiday color scheme is a guide. Don’t feel locked in to using only those colors. There’s nothing wrong with a pop of color here and there.

Above all, your holiday decor should make you happy. All of us at Hatchett Design Remodel wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
