Anytime you're decorating a space for the holidays with bold colors like red or green, think of how the clean look of ultra-white helps keep the high energy hues balanced. Almost any color works well in this space for a seasonal look thanks to permanent white elements like the aluminum pendant above the table.
Change up your focal point easily and effectively by swapping out year-round art pieces with more seasonal ones. Here, a wood and fabric piece featuring a reindeer silhouette and rich, vibrant plaid instantly changes the space from a year-round place to sit and eat to a bold, inviting holiday hot spot.
Along a charcoal gray wall in this modern combined dining room and kitchen, a window in the shape of an isosceles triangle provides plenty of natural lighting and room to display artwork. Below, an oversized wall calendar hangs on a wall with hardwood floors and a wooden table.
Against an eggplant purple wall, a white shelving unit provides sharp contrast, coordinating with a small white table flanked by two velvet chairs. This elegant space provides stylish storage for books and accessories.
