Christmas seems far away but when you star seen decorated malls, Christmas related TV ads and posts on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest…that means that it’s time to start planning.
I’ve already given to you some Christmas decoration tips in this post (http://www.homedesignideas.eu/christmas-decorations-make-your-house-stand-out/) but now its time to see what suggest one of the most amazing magazines in the world (for me it is).
Elle Decor has been publishing some articles online that will give to you some great ideas for the holidays.
Home design ideas has selected some of the best
Have a chic Christmas
Forget the so called cheap and cheerful decor. Plastic things always look good at first sight but, with time, they start losing appeal. This year go for the shiny and chic. Elle Decor suggests:
“Forget furry red and white variety craft, these felt stockings are simple, classic, and have a childlike flair that makes them perfectly suited to the season. Three birds in bright grass green, teal, and red, will bring the mantle to life.”
Ten Tiny Reindeer
“We’ve long loved Publique Living’s placemat designs, with perfect little paper cutouts that pop to life. This charming reindeer with swirling antlers will undoubtedly add character to the holiday table. Available in black, brown or white in sets of 10.”
“The beach might seem like a far-off dream around this time of year, but this unusual shell topiary brings a little West Coast charm to the Christmas scheme. We love how the different shells almost mimic the way that branches reach out from a tree while the white and cream colors make for a gorgeous accent.”
Bring Nature In
“These rustic candles look almost like the base of a Christmas tree. Made from hand-poured wax covered in real birch bark, they burn straight down to create a gorgeous glow from within. A lovely way to create a warm, woodsy atmosphere.”

“If you’re in need of holiday napkin rings, no need to rush out to the shops to get them. Just top your favorite ribbon with a simple sprig of pine, and you have an instant hit. Continue the table decoration with a few glass ornaments to complement your place settings. They make for great party favors.”
Delicious Dining Room
“Scandinavian simplicity takes a turn for the tasty with the addition of peppermint candy and popcorn embellishments. Playing off the crimson stripe of the upholstered bench and chairs, the picnic-style plank table is topped off with a red ribbon runner. A centerpiece of seasonal greens and berries becomes the focal point, flanked by a pair of glass vases filled with pieces of swirling candy canes and topped with popcorn balls dotted with hypericum berries.”
Even if after all these advices you haven’t had that fantastic idea for your Christmas decorations, take time to think and… watch a movie perhaps. You don’t know what movie? Elle Decor comes again to save the day. See a classic Christmas movie and why not recreate in your home some Hollywood festive decor?
