Plaid throws add both a seasonal decorative touch and a sense of coziness to each seat at this inviting dining room table. Greenery trimmed with pinecones and pomegranates add additional classic touches that match the traditional look of the home.
When it comes to holiday sweets, think about the decorative value they can add to seasonally decorated spaces with the proper display. Here, the centerpiece of the tiny breakfast nook happens to be a white coconut cake. When placed on a cake stand, it instantly becomes a statement piece. To keep cakes fresher for longer periods of time, be sure to keep them on cake stands with glass covers.
Fill a jar or two with seasonal flowers picked up at a local market or grocery store (or even pick some dried hydrangeas from your own yard.) Mix those with pumpkins and seasonal fruits, like apples and pears, to make simple, but pretty table decorations.
Plaid stockings hung on the mantel mimic the classic plaid throw pillows on the sofa in this traditional living room decorated for Christmas. Lush greenery and amaryllis finish the fireplace with a natural, seasonal touch.
Cranberry sauce is one of the most popular culinary elements of Thanksgiving. Put a decorative spin on cranberry tones by using them as accents for your porch's fall decor through seasonal flowers and plants.
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.

Decorative pillows may not be essential but they go a long way to achieving the atmosphere you desire in your bedroom. Flanigan says, "Decorative pillows tells people a lot about you and how formal you want your 'rest nest' to feel. Start with larger Euro shams in a neutral hue that serve as a backdrop for the smaller lumbar and boudoir pillows. Enjoy changing your smaller pillows on a seasonal basis for a quick and budget-friendly transformation that will adorn your bed with a fresh dose of color and texture."
