Polka Dots & Rosebuds Interiors 2013 Holiday Design Tips & Trends--go natural!
Whether or not you are a do it yourself-er, you're most likely starting to think about your holiday decor--what's in, what's not, and "What can I do to make this year really special?" Here are a few things to get you going--with bonus DIY tips!
Get earthy. Use natural colors, earth tones—soft blues, mint, light teal greens, grey and chocolate—w/silver as your “bling.”
DIY Tip: Do NOT throw older, traditional décor away. Remember—whatever is old will eventually become new again--and can hopefully be used in a future DIY project!
Think rustic. Add rustic charm- with natural materials like tree bark, pine cones mixed with porcelain and throwing in furry woodland creature ornaments for warmth.
DIY Tip: Let your crafty self go crazy--wrap ornaments in twine, kint and/or crochet ornaments, make burlap flowers and metal ribbons.
Use your new earthy, texture driven décor at home—AND as gifts. Wrap a few extra ornaments in twine, knit or crochet a few more ornaments, and use as gifts.
DIY Tip: You can also use the materials for gift wrapping.
