Picture it: It’s the day after Thanksgiving, Mariah Carey’s Christmas album is playing on a loop, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is on in the background, a fire is going in the fireplace, the pumpkins have been stowed away until next year, and cup of peppermint cocoa in hand, you’re in full swing decking your halls. The tree is going up, lights are being strung, and the stockings are being hung by the chimney with care of course–getting your home ready for the holiday festivities is a magical time, using seasonal decor to transform your home into a holiday wonderland.
Of course, you know the staples: tinsel, garland, wreaths, Santas, ornaments, candy canes, and reindeer oh my! If you’re the type that loves to go all out and deck the halls from top to bottom then go on and get your elf on, but if you’re looking for holiday cheer in a cinch, adding just a few simple festive touches can go a long way this holiday season.
Using Festive Area Rugs
The holiday season is the perfect time to make things special around the house– take advantage of bringing the spirit of the holidays into every room with festive touches everywhere. While the tree, stockings, and lights certainly take center stage, the answer to tying it all together lies right under your feet–the rug!
Choose an area rug in seasonal color or pattern that complements your other main decor. Adding a festive rug under the dining table, or in the entryway is the perfect way to ensure the holiday spirit runs throughout your home around every corner.
Add a well-placed rug near the fireplace or to enhance the space around your tree, add a pop of Christmas cheer to bedrooms with a simple area rug at the edge of the bed, add a whimsical rug to the playroom to keep the magic alive.
Adding a holiday area rug not only helps to create a focal point in the room and draw attention to a main piece of decor such as the tree, but an area rug is not just for aesthetics. A rug underfoot, especially in the kitchen on cold tile, or on hardwood floors running through the hallway helps create a warm and inviting area fit for holiday gatherings or cozy nights sitting in the lights of the tree. Simply adding a holiday rug to the bathroom offers that extra special attention to detail that will certainly make you smile and enthrall your guests.
In addition to aesthetics and ambiance, holiday rugs are an excellent way to protect your main flooring from the influx of visiting friends and family. Keep kitchen floors clean from dropped sprinkles and sifted flour from cookie baking with a washable area rug, lay down a runner in the hall to keep scuffs and scratches at bay, and keep carpets in the living room pristine with a removable, festive area rug.
