How to Decorate Your Austin Home for the Holidays11/16/2015Many Texans enjoy decorating on a grand scale, although you don't have to go to extremes to create a warm holiday ambiance in your Austin home. With a few creative touches, it's easy to make your home more festive. Here are some tips for dressing up your domicile for the holiday season: Let There Be Light Reflect the brilliance of the holiday season by dressing your home up in lights. While you may have already thought of adorning your home's exterior with some sparkle, why not light up the inside of your home as well? Mantles and shelves are two ideal spots for white or colored lights, however, you can even wind a strand of lights through large houseplants or indoor trees for the ultimate in festive illumination. Take Cues from Nature Bring the outdoors in and celebrate the season with touches like evergreen boughs and artistically arranged pine cones. Pine cones can be spray painted with a sparkly paint for an extra-festive touch, then arranged in a decorative bowl. Holly and poinsettia plants are another great way to add holiday spirit to your home — just make sure to go faux if there are children or pets in the home as these plants can be toxic. Try a Traditional Color Palette To invoke a holiday mood, stick with traditional colors. Red and green are ideal for adding flair to your home. You don't have to paint the walls or change the furniture — simply add touches like a red throw pillow on the sofa or a green blanket draped over a chair. When it comes to color combinations as striking as red and green, a little goes a long way. Even a few strategically placed pieces in these hues can take your home from drab to festive in no time.
