Name a few tips for those looking to decorate their homes for the holiday season in a non-traditional way.
What is important with holiday decor is to keep it classic and simple, and to use similar color for your ornament; pick a color, then stick to it and do not go crazy, (okay, you can pick a maximum of two or three colors). I love the idea of metalic color decor—it makes everything look so rich, so chic. No need to clutter your house with excess decor to make your home feel festive; a few candles and a simple tree will do it.
I also love using wallpaper to wrap my presents instead of the classic wrapping: there are amazing pattern options. You could even match it to your wall! And it has the advantage of being more resistant; no more tearing on sharp corners when wrapping all those presents. Here again I tend to use only one pattern for all the presents—just add some luxury color ribbon: one color for each person, et voila!
