Christmas decorations should all be about magic. What is the better way to welcome the holidays than to focus on things that truly matter and to turn your home into a magical place of joy? Transforming the core of your home — wherever that may be — into a cozy and colorful interior allows that magic to take place.
Whether you have a fireplace with stockings, a decorated Christmas tree, a colorful lighting installation or a creative message on one of the walls, the living room is the focal point of many residences and should set the tone for the entire house.

Use pine, spruce and juniper when decorating your holiday mantel, spritzing the boughs with water to keep them fresh. Birch twigs, winterberry and silvery pinecones will add some sparkle.
Add a Seasonal Scent
You don’t necessarily need to burn many candles to make your home smell like a holiday. Tucking bunches of cinnamon sticks in a Christmas garland over the mantelpiece adds both texture and fragrance at the same time.
Display Holiday Cards
Secured to a string with clothespins, the season’s greetings are on full display. A rustic ladder can also hold cozy throws and blankets for chilly nights.
Dangle Candy Canes
Keep treats on display (and out of kids’ and pets’ reach) by hanging them along the top of the window. Hooked on matching ribbon, the peppermints look super cute.
Display winter’s most festive foods in a glass vase with the candle in the middle. This one has walnuts, cranberries and kumquats.
Make over the tabletops in your home with inexpensive tartan blankets, scarves, tablecloths and more. It’s the easiest and the fastest way to adding some festive flair to any room.
Build a Hot Cocoa Station
Deck out your go-to place for a warm cup of your favorite festive beverage with cozy plaid throws and seasonal bottle cozies.
