Home Decorating Ideas for the Holidays

Go from simple to simply striking.

The key to making your holiday décor feel like home is to blend your personal style into the details. For dramatic, high-impact eye candy, turn you bare walls into stylish displays by filling custom cut glass mirrors of varying shapes and heights.

Don’t hold back on overhead opulence.

Shimmery snowflakes and magnificent ornaments have their place beyond the tree. Accentuate your overhead lighting with these sparkling decorations, keeping with a cool winter palette like silver and blue. Add an elegant touch by dangling satin ribbons from your chandelier.

Make the most of your glass table tops.

When decorating custom cut glass table tops with a winter feel, the key is to shine. Picture icicles glittering like diamonds or the sun reflecting off fresh snow.  To create beautiful winter glass top tables, put the custom cut glass mirror front and center by nixing festive fabric table runners and laying out votives, tea lights and pillar candles instead. The glass will help enhance the warm, cozy glow that illuminates the room.

Play up the clean perfection of glass shelves.

Glass shelves can hold virtually anything, and they’re beautifully sculptural when they’re well designed.  Add some sparkle to a room by decorating any of your glass shelves with some holiday glitz and glamour. Try group a trio of large silver candlesticks in varied sizes in the center of your shelf and insert some clean white candles. String up two or three rows of colored holiday lights against the back of glass shelves and plug them into a local electrical outlet. The bright, shining gleam will be enhanced through the transparent glass.

Welcome color at your front door.

Create a warm, inviting entrance for your guests by accenting your front door with the bright, bold colors of an evergreen wreath and garland. Frame the door with the garland and place the wreath in the center.  Then tie wide red ribbons to each. Add some twinkling lights for a soft glow at night.

Gift-wrap your coffee table.

Transform your coffee table into a wrapped present by crisscrossing strands of ribbon over the top and sides. If you have a custom cut glass coffee table, place some of your real gift-wrapped presents underneath the table for a three-dimensional display.

Make your own coasters.

Sometimes holiday design is in the details. Consider creating your own drink coasters by searching online for images of your favorite tartan fabric.  Print out color copies, then cut them into squares and place in photo coasters.

Simple festive touches can make your home feel bright and inviting this season. From the front door to the kitchen, these are just a few of the countless home decorating ideas that will have yours ringing with holiday cheer this year.
