House Crashing: Holiday Decorating Ideas

Diana’s holiday decorating style is to work with what you already have. Her home is beautiful during the year and she incorporates her seasonal decor into it. Beautiful vignette’s are dispersed all throughout the home, each one created by hand.

The front entrance has its own tree and decorations.  What an exciting entrance to a home.

A galvanized copper bucket is used to hold wood near the wood burning fireplace year round.  A lit wreath is added for the Christmas festivities.  I think I could curl up with a good book in this chair and stay forever.

The tree in the family room is decorated with ornaments reflecting the families hobbies.  Oversized snowflakes reflect light from the bulbs in the trees, adding extra shimmer and shine.  Ski’s with plaques, ski boots, and a gondola are personal touches added as well.

A great way to make the living room look well put together is to have your presents wrapped in paper that coordinates with your tree.  I love how the presents are wrapped in small treasures like family photos, chalkboard wrapping paper, ornaments, and many other small personal touches.

This table is at the entry of the home year round.  I love that the existing furniture remains, but still works with what she has for the holidays.


The dining room has its own tree, and the Christmas Village sits atop her dining hutch.

This beautiful display sits beside a game table in the basement.  An often overlooked room gets a holiday spruce up as well.

A pair of chairs gets a throw pillow and lighting garland brightens up the stair railing.  Simple highlights to an already well designed space.

This coffee table is styled this well year round, but the sleigh, wreath, and Christmas sign add that special touch that make the living room look magnificent.
