We love to design interiors year round, but there is something very special about decorating for the holidays. It evokes comforting feelings of nostalgia that are upheld each year with our traditions and decor. Festive greenery, lighting, and a roaring fire make your home feel like an oasis from the bitter cold wind and snowy sidewalks that we find outside in Chicago during these months.
A classic Christmas look is always in — and that’s easy to understand considering people have been decorating trees for approximately 1000 years. Some of the original Christmas Trees in Europe were hung upside down from the ceiling using chains (hung from chandeliers or lighting hooks) — can you imagine doing that with some of our light fixtures today?!
As you get ready to deck your halls, remember that it’s all in the details. We like to incorporate a lot of greenery and natural elements for a clean and classic look. Layering with candles, throws and pillows is a great way to add a cozy feeling that you will love.
We wanted to share some of our favorite holiday accessories to help make your shopping a little easier this time of year. So you can relax, turn on some Michael Buble, light a fire, and enjoy your holiday traditions.
