3 Festive Decor Aesthetics to Try in Your Space This Holiday Season
If you’re anything like me, the literal second Halloween is over, you’re blasting Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas” and unpacking your box of holiday decor at full tilt. You’re also probably a little bored of the same mismatched garlands and old warped string of LED lights you’ve been using to deck the halls in your college home for the past few years.
This holiday season, I’m graduating from haphazardly decorating my college bedroom to transforming my space with a few new, budget-friendly pieces, resulting in a festive and cohesive look throughout my home.
Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, or simply the winter season, if you’re looking to give your space a festive glow-up, here are three aesthetics to consider — plus a handful of products that’ll help you achieve each look.
Winter Wonderland Holiday Decor
You can recreate the serene beauty of white blankets of snow and ice-capped trees in your space with just a few simple pieces — just look for decor in white and silver, as well as snowflake motifs.
Cozy Après Ski Holiday Decor
If you dream of hitting the slopes (or just lounging in a hot tub during apres ski time), this aesthetic is for you. Rustic tones, warm lighting, and nature-inspired accents can transport any space into a makeshift ski lodge.
Traditional Holiday-Specific Decor
One of the best parts of the holiday season is recreating memories that brought you so much joy when you were younger. Especially if you’re living away from home, decking out your college space with decor that reminds you of your childhood and family traditions can be super special. If you live with people who celebrate different holidays, implementing different holiday decor can be a great way to honor and respect each other’s backgrounds and traditions while creating new ways to celebrate the season together.
