There’s no shortage of design inspiration each holiday. From the homes on St. Charles to the Instagram posts, it’s easy to feel both excited and overwhelmed. Here are some decorating tips that strike a balance between festive and frugal:
• Buy a permanent wreath made with simpler materials, and hang it with an over-the-door hook rather than nails.
• Use ornaments in unexpected places to add some subtle seasonality to your space, from your curtain rods to drawers.
• Add touches like festive blankets and cinnamon- or ginger-scented candles to your living spaces. They can be added (and removed) easily.
