Are you looking for decorating ideas to make your new Bayberry home festive for the holiday season? Check out this article from HGTV-they provide some great tips on how to decorate your home in style without breaking your budget.
Some of the highlights are:
- Stick with white lights-they can be used with any color scheme you choose for your home. Colored lights are beautiful, but they can be costly if you plan on changing your color palette from year to year.
- Place potpourri and scented candles near your foyer and throughout your house. You could even bake some cookies shortly before guests arrive.
-Give your space a different look and feel for this special time of year. Rearrange your furniture so the focal point is the fireplace or wherever you hang stockings. If you don’t have a fireplace, arrange the furniture to create the best layout for cozy conversations.November 18, 2013
