Christmas Cheer

Chic and Festive Christmas Decor

Wednesday, 5 Dec 2012

Excited for coming the holiday season but dreading the loads of tacky Christmas decor?

Don’t fret, Christmas decorations do not have to be gaudy or dated. We come to the rescue with seven inspired ideas to create a home that is both a chic and festive (and not a reindeer in sight!).

Even better, our holiday tips work beautifully in the warm weather climate of Singapore.

Here’s wishing you a stylish and joyous holiday season!

These interior tips were brought to you by Allison Egan, an interior designer who makes designing and styling your dream space a snap. Visit Allison at AllisonEgan.com or at her blog, Spicer + Bank.

 

Holiday 1

Bright and Mod

Skip the crimson and dark green and opt for brighter primary hues instead! We love this clean, minimal holiday décor and the burst of poppy colors makes it warm and festive.

Natural and Rustic

Natural materials and a neutral color scheme create chic and informal holiday decor. We love these untreated pine trees and faux antlers. Also try wrapping presents in classic brown kraft paper with natural string bows!

Industrial and Eclectic

Holiday decorations do not have to look as if they came from a window display! A collected look of mix and matched chairs, photos framing the doorway, and a clustered silver light fixture create a casual and welcoming setting perfect for holiday entertaining.

Vintage and Simple

We love this classic look! It is traditional and timeless but not fussy or over done. Using a grouping of mercury glass vases and votives gives an antique feel, while the simple white backdrop keeps it modern and fresh.

holiday 5

Cozy and Scandi

Pale woods, cozy textiles and red and white accents create a homey and warm feel. We can just imagine curling up with a cup of cocoa in this relaxed dining room!

holiday 6

Elegant and Metallic

Why not add a little glamour and sparkle to your home at the holidays? We love this mantle filled with silver, gold, and brass colored shine and a beaded wreath. A lovely but subtle way to infuse holiday style. Even better, this look blends beautifully with any interior.

holiday 7

Crafty and Colorful

We adore the idea of making holiday decorating a family affair! The festive colors and crafty textures of these garlands would be a great project with the kids, while the touches of metallic shine add a grown-up feel.
