The holidays are almost here! Have you procrastinated on your decorating? There’s still time to bring a festive feeling to your home. Here are some simple, enchanting tips to bring the holiday spirit into each room.

Living room

  • Christmas doesn’t have to mean red and green everywhere. White lights, trees, or stockings can still brighten up a room in a contemporary, festive way.
  • For the sake of hardwood floors, a faux tree may be best as pine needles can scratch floors when falling from a living tree. With a faux tree, however, a traditional tree stand can also scratch the floor, so a decorative tree skirt or wicker basket can help protect your beautiful hardwood floors.
  • For a simple red touch, add red and white flowers to your mantle or coffee table.
  • Silver and gold have been synonymous with Christmas for years, so mixing in metallics is a glam way to spice up your decor.


  • Make your dining chairs part of your design with a simple red ribbon and some elegant fir branches.
  • White candlesticks and garland will add a festive feel to your countertops. Beautiful new quartz countertops can also add an extra pop to your holiday décor. FloorQuest has brought the fabrication process in-house, so there’s never been a better time or price to update.
  • Wreaths aren’t just for the front door! Hanging a few varying sized wreaths throughout the kitchen will bring in the holiday feel.
  • Switch out your kitchen essentials. Get a few festive pot holders or dish towels to add a little extra to your kitchen.
  • A decorative plate topped with ornaments will add some Christmas flair.


  • Draping your headboard, chandelier, or four-poster bed in garland will have you dreaming of sugar plums. Bonus if it’s adorned with twinkling lights!
  • Swap out your bedding for some cozy flannel sheets or a festive duvet.
  • Bring in some accents like red plaid throw pillows, blankets, or a hanging wreath.
  • Who says the tree has to stay in the living room? Add a small tree in an empty corner of your room for a 24 hour Christmas feel!


  • Deck the shower curtains with tree ornaments! Simply hang them from the curtain rings.
  • Large bathroom? Why not add a small tree to this room too?
  • Switch out daily towels for red, green and white ones during the season. Bonus: Add a festive shower curtain too!
  • Add garland with lights around the mirror to give yourself a holiday glow.
  • Spruce up your vanity with evergreen in a vase or draped along the back.
