Inspiring Christmas Decorating Ideas-00-1 Kindesign

The Christmas season is upon us and if you have not started decorating yet or are getting to your finishing touches, we have some fantastic ideas for you. Remember, you don’t just need to stick to your living room to decorate for Christmas. You can decorate all rooms in your house, with some just being an added touch. This can be as simple as a small, burlap-wrapped, light-up tree (battery-operated is always a plus). I have one on my office desk from Anthropologie that I just love. If you do go looking for this tree, I have to warn you, it does come with a lot of glitter, but I personally don’t mind… it adds a little extra sparkle! You can find these trees just about anywhere, Pottery Barn, Balsam Hill.

You could also add some stockings, on your dresser knob, some hooks on your guest bedroom wall. If you have a wood ladder, you can add some string lights to it for a little ambiance. String lights are fantastic, these can be added pretty much anywhere. If you are looking for some ideas, we have a couple of must see articles on this topic: 45 Inspiring ways to decorate your home with string lights and 66 Inspiring ideas for Christmas lights in the bedroom. Wreaths are another wonderful way to add some fresh greenery into your home, as are pinecones and plants such as Poinsettias and Paper Whites. There are a lot of wonderful ideas to share with you, so we have gathered together some inspiring Christmas decorating ideas to help get you started. Enjoy and please let us know which one is your favorite and why in the Comments below!
