2. Clear the clutter. Nothing ruins the look of a room more than clutter. Create storage spaces for common clutter such as for papers, mail, toys, coats, and other items that steal the look of a room in a negative way. [Read more…]
- Windows. Accent your window fashions by painting holiday decorations on your windows. Purchase holiday themed sponge shapes at a craft store, and paint stars, snowflakes, snowmen, trees, and more onto your windows. Add a teaspoon of liquid dish soap to acrylic craft paint to make clean-up easy when the season ends.
- Artwork. Use your framed artwork as built-in holiday decorations. Either drape them with ribbon, or go all out and wrap them in stylish, high quality wrapping paper that matches your theme. You don’t have to do this with every piece of art, but select them carefully and in a pattern. For example, do all pieces that can be seen from your front window, or focus just on the dining room, entryway, or the room with your tree.
