Decorium | Deck The Halls

‘Tis the season for decoration and there’s no better way to do that than with some inspiration.  From marvelous lighting designed to add a little sparkle, to elegant carpets, eieihome sought out expert advice from the interior decorators at Decorium, who shared their tips on how to accessorize your home on a budget. By following the guide below, it won’t be just your house that lights up, but the faces of family and friends in delight.

Choose a theme

Throughout the holidays, we use themes to decorate; ranging from building up a wonderfully decorated tree, a decked out mantel and many other areas of your home.  Whether you prefer to stick with the more traditional red and green of Christmas past, or a more modern take with sparkling gold and teal,  choosing a singular theme can help keep your home cohesive and consistent, giving it the look of a professionally decorated living space with minimal effort.

Switch it up

You should never be afraid of mixing it up a little bit, and by something as simple as swapping out what are normal centre pieces—such as a lamp, area rug, cabinet or a mirror—you can save some money by avoiding a full overhaul.

Lighting

Don’t be hesitant about using an additional table or floor lamp—which can easily change the ambiance of a room—and if you position the lights just right, you can bring your artwork to life.  You can never go wrong with extra lighting during the holidays; a warm and cheery atmosphere can make any social gathering a success.

Area Rugs

Area rugs can bring a cosy and comfortable feeling to a room, making them functional as well as fashionable.  Keeping in mind your decorating theme be it teal and gold or red and green—the more commonly used rooms will work better with a flat-weave area rug.
