Art Deco


While art deco is often used on iconic landmarks and in architecture, you can also bring the trend into your own living room. Exude luxury with decadent details like a gold-plated tree or glitzy Santa figurine. Don't forget to go glam with the lighting by placing candles throughout the room. Opt for LED ones so you don't have to worry about whether or not you left them burning.



Maximalism is the art of mixing colors, textures, and prints in a way that feels effortless. Focus on quirky accents and bright hues. These lighted gift boxes will add a dose of character to any space, while smaller details like festive pillows and figurines can be used to complement your current decor.



At the other end of the design spectrum, there's minimalism. Marked by clean lines, monochromatic tones, and zero clutter, this trend is perfect for those looking for a contemporary spin on traditional holiday decor. To make your space tranquil and inviting, pick lush fabrics, like these quilted stockings, and simplified accents made with organic materials, like this chic wooden nutcracker. Keep the space interesting by combining a variety of textures: this metal tree creates a nice contrast from the organic decor.

Countryside Chic


This relaxed, cabin-inspired aesthetic incorporates warm textures, mixed patterns, and distressed finishes. The holiday color scheme on these plaid pillows pairs well with almost any couch — not to mention, they're super comfortable. Place a fabric tree on a side table or a fireplace mantel to maximize the cozy vibes. This basket will shine against the plush details and add a touch of holiday cheer.



You can never go wrong with a traditional holiday setup. First up, the tree: Choose a classic shape with preinstalled lights so you don't have to spend hours weaving LED strings through each branch. An artificial tree also means no pine-needle mess or daily watering — it's carefree. When accessorizing, stick to a classic color palette with red, white, and silver ornaments, and choose timeless accents, like a nutcracker. Now, all you need are a blanket and a hot cup of cocoa.
