12 Ways to Make Your Home Irresistibly Inviting: Holiday Edition

As we move deeper into fall, the air gets chillier, the days get shorter, and we come to the sudden realization that a gauntlet of holidays will soon be upon us. Holiday parties are a part of the fun, and if you’re planning on hosting any get-togethers at your home, you may be wondering how to spruce up your space in preparation. Depending on how much lead-time you have, try following some of these tips to make your home feel more inviting.

DINING ROOM IDEAS

Your dining area will likely be the main focus for a holiday gathering. If you’ve been meaning to update the space anyway, this is a great excuse for a mini-makeover.

1) Mismatched chairs definitely aren’t a bad thing, but if you want them to look uniform, try slipcovering them for a shabby-chic vibe. (This is also a good tip if your chairs have just seen better days.) Chair covers are often available for rent at party supply shops, or for purchase at most big-box stores.

2) Large mirrors add opulence and make a space look bigger. Try to find one with a prominent frame. If you have a garage sale or flea market find that isn’t quite right, you can give it a whole new look by spray painting the frame gold or some other metallic shade that coordinates with your décor.

3) Take advantage of your chandelier! We love statement lighting over the dining room table. Update an older fixture with new lampshades or crystals.

4) Create a beautiful centerpiece using candles, fresh flowers, ornaments, or whatever you’d like. This gives your table setting a “wow” factor that your guests will notice.

5) Use ornate china as additional décor and display it on an open hutch or floating shelf. When you’re about to serve a meal, just take them down and give them a quick wash. If you’re expecting a large group, another option is to rent china, glasses, napkins, and silverware from your local party rental company. This saves you from having to purchase any new place settings just for the holidays.

6) If you want to make your home smell amazing as your guests are arriving, simmer any combination of sliced fruit, spices, and essential oils like Lemon Oil for Rouh
with purified water in a pot on the stove. For in an invigorating scent, try purified water, sliced lemons, peppermint and ylang ylang essential oils, and a few rosemary sprigs. Our favorite combination for this time of year includes purified water, sliced apples and grapefruit, orange essential oil, and some cinnamon sticks. Just remember to treat the concoction like a burning candle in that it shouldn’t be left completely unattended.

LIVING ROOM IDEAS

The living room is where your guests will convene after a meal to socialize, so it never hurts to take this space to the next level when you’re expecting company.

7) Festive throw pillows are relatively inexpensive and will instantly make your seating look tailored to the season. Pillows can also correct sofas that are too deep (and serve as floor seating in a pinch).

8) Your guests will likely gather in the living room with drinks they’ll need to set down, so make sure to put small end tables next to any seating that’s out of reach from the coffee table. If you don’t have any, check out these options at The Great American Home Store.

9) Rearrange your furniture with an open floor space in mind if you have to make room for a crowd. Also take this opportunity to declutter – gather up papers, books and magazines, etc. into storage containers.

10) Enhance the ambiance! Light a fire in the fireplace if you have one, and put some background music on to fill out any lulls in conversation (about 25% lower volume than normal speaking voices).

GENERAL TIPS:

11) You likely won’t have time to give each guest a tour, so labeling the key rooms of your house can be extremely helpful. Purchase some blackboard signs and chalk from your local craft store and get creative! For example, prop a large one on your entry table that says “Welcome.” Then use smaller chalkboards with holes in the top for hanging (try using burlap rope or fabric ribbon) and label the doors to the coat closet and bathrooms.

12) A good rule of thumb for pre-party cleaning is to start from your entryway and follow the path that your guests are most likely to go (into the living room, through the kitchen, the bathrooms, etc.) But don’t stress too much at the last minute! Try to get the important things done in advance so you can relax and enjoy your guests when the time comes.

While we don’t have a tip to help you survive family drama, endless cooking, or any of the other glorious trials that go hand-in-hand with the holidays, we CAN wish you the best of luck and remind you that you’ll make it through. You’ll probably have a great time while you’re at it!

How to Upgrade Your Bedroom This Weekend

Interior design can be a daunting process for most people – especially if you work full-time or stay busy with familial duties. However, a new look doesn’t necessarily require a total overhaul. When time is of the essence and you aren’t sure where to begin, you can make a big impact just by changing some key elements in your space. (And YES, you CAN do this over the weekend! Promise). Sometimes it’s a good idea to give your home a makeover if you are planning on moving anytime soon. This is because home improvements make it easier to sell your home. However, you don’t need to have an excuse like moving home to start redecorating, if you fancy a change then you can easily get started. And as stated earlier, you can do it over a weekend if you wanted to.

1) Out with the old

arrow-964733_1920

First, identify what you don’t like about your bedroom’s current look. Is the overall feel too cluttered? Eliminate some unnecessary knickknacks that are taking up space. Tired of the outdated canopy over your bed? Give it to a friend or donate it to charity. Once you’ve removed anything that doesn’t bring you joy or fit with your lifestyle anymore, you can start to add in new elements that do.

2) Dress up your focal point

bed-890579_1920

The bed is a good place to begin since it carries a big impact, and the rest of the room will be easier to style if you use the bed as a centerpiece to complement. If you want to change up the color of your bedspread but don’t want to purchase a new one, try a duvet cover (which is essentially a large “pillowcase” for your comforter with a closure at the bottom). It’s a great way to bring a different aesthetic to your room without committing to lots of expensive bedding. And the best part? If you want to change things up again, it’s as easy as removing the cover.

3) New pillows for a pop of color

pillows-791906_1920

Most duvet cover sets come with shams for your existing full-sized pillows, but you’ll probably want to place some smaller throw pillows on your bed to accent them. This is a perfect opportunity to play with color and texture if the rest of your décor is relatively plain. If you have a chair or loveseat in your room, try putting a matching throw pillow there too. It will not only tie the look together, but also add comfort to your seating area.

4) Set the mood

bedroom-881123_1920

Next, focus on increasing the “coziness quotient” of your room. If you have hardwood or otherwise uncarpeted floors, a rug can add some warmth. If you place it next to the bed right where your feet hit in the morning, you’ll never have to deal with a jarring, cold floor again! Another element that can affect your space’s mood is lighting. Getting new uPVC windows installed can take a little bit of time. For instant fixes, you can buy a new lamp, or just switch out the lampshades and light bulbs of your existing lighting. An inexpensive way to add ambiance is to purchase some string lights and drape them around your headboard. If you really wanted to upgrade the lighting in your room, you could change the style to a more modern one, similar to barn style lighting, to really make your room stand out and benefit from light.

5) Get a handle on it

You may not have time to change out larger furniture like your chest of drawers and bedside tables, but there’s a quick way to make them over – new handles! Just visit your local home improvement warehouse and pick your favorite style. Trading out your rusty metal drawer handles for some beautiful glass knobs will make a noticeable difference you’ll love.

6) Gallery wall to the rescue

couch-881125_1920

Now let’s take a look at the walls. You may not have time this weekend to repaint, but you can refresh the look by moving around any artwork you already have hanging up, adding a new painting, or putting up a simple floating shelf. Instead of just displaying photos of family and friends in free-standing picture frames, get creative and make a gallery wall arrangement! Choose a grid pattern or any shape/combination that accents your wall. Additionally, your space will feel larger and brighter in a matter of seconds if you hang up a mirror. If you already have this type of feature wall already present in another room in your house, you may need to think about redecorating your wall in a different way. Designs like this marble wallpaper for your bedroom may persuade you to turn your attention toward wallpaper and stickers. What’s even better is that you don’t need to spend that much time doing it, as some of them have the peel and stick option. It’s definitely something worth considering if you want to change your interior.

7) Storage with style

wicker-14462_640

If you don’t have much closet space or like to store your belongings out in the open, adding some creative storage solutions will help keep things tidy. (Well, at least tidier – we’re all only human!) Uniformity is key, so pick a style you like and try to stick with it. For example, we love the look of matching baskets lined up on open shelves or a hutch.

8) Fun with feng shui

chair-270980_1920

It’s amazing what a general change of scenery can do, so don’t be afraid to experiment with furniture placement. Try facing your bed in a different direction or moving your desk to a new corner of the room. If you don’t have a group of body builders at your disposal to execute your vision, a multi-pack of furniture pads and sliders that will make the job a lot easier.

9) Greenery for that finishing touch

flowers-desk-office-vintage

Finally, a wonderful way to add life to your room is to do just that – add life! If you grab some fresh flowers the next time you’re at the grocery store, arrange them in decorative vases to place in various spots throughout your space (such as your bedside table, desk, dresser, or windowsill). If you prefer larger potted plants, these look nice in the corner to help frame and anchor the space.

When you’re ready for a bigger change, consider stopping by The Great American Home Store for inspiration. You just might find the perfect bed, table, dresser or accessory to complete your dream room!
