5 Different Ways to Decorate Your Ho-Ho-Home for Christmas


It’s officially time to deck the halls (and your home) with holiday cheer!

Not sure where to start, or want to try something new? Max Humphrey, design guru at Decorist, showed us five different ways to decorate for Christmas.

Rustic Christmas

Rustic Christmas decor is all about bringing the beauty of the outdoors in. Decorate the door with a fir wreath, the mantel with pine cones and other found objects, and the tree with wood-carved ornaments. And don’t forget to cultivate a warm, welcoming ambience! Trade in colorful lights for slow-burning candles instead. (Bonus points for WoodWick® candles that mimic the sound of a crackling fireplace!)

Glam Christmas

Prefer to glam it up? Take to the tree with glitter, faux snow, and a whole lot of tinsel! The dinner table is another chance to add shine. Throw on a metallic-woven table cloth, gold placemats, and centerpieces and napkin holders that look just as shiny as your favorite piece of jewelry.

Whimsical Christmas

If you’re looking for a more lighthearted take on Christmas, consider a whimsical setting with witty accents, like a Charlie Brown Christmas tree or a tribute to your favorite holiday flick. Doormats and stockings with messages to Santa are also a cute way to generate a couple laughs. Stock up on plenty of tongue-in-cheek accessories, but don’t go full-on Griswold!

Coastal Christmas

Coastal Christmas decor is perfect for warmer climates. Draw inspiration from the sea, using driftwood accents, table linens embroidered with sea creature and nautical motifs, and garland made from sisal, rope, and sea glass. Star-shaped accessories also add a coastal note. We love a freestanding star with string lights to illuminate the mantel or console.

Classic Christmas

You can’t go wrong with a classic Christmas setting. A green, red, and white color scheme is a must, complete with pine wreaths, holly berry accents, garland, and oversize stockings hung from the mantel. Nostalgic finishing touches are also a great way to commemorate a classic Christmas, from nutcrackers and string lights to candy cane ornaments, faux snow, and big red velvet bows.

Which way is your favorite? Let us know in the comments below!
