The dining room is illuminated with a dark metal chandelier and staged with bright, comfortable chairs and a dining table set with blue plates and French Country accessories and greenery. The new French doors open to the backyard and offer additional natural light. A magnolia wreath hangs above a sideboard displaying two lamps and white serving dishes.
The stained front door and boxwood wreath enhances the cottage-style aesthetic of this metro Atlanta home. Interior designer Anisa Darnell selected a wooden door and stained it for a warm and weathered look. A modern lantern contrasts with the stone exterior and boxwoods in tall planters, she says.
Homeowners, Kimberly and Brent, found two leaded glass windows at a second-hand store, which now flank the bed. An old wood frame window and cotton plant wreath serve as an art piece above the bed, and the natural wood paneling on the ceiling complements the shiplap wooden details seen throughout the house on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
In lieu of red, pink can be a lovely, contemporary design-forward way to bring festive color to your home. We love how the pink bow on this wreath cleverly draped on a shower door is echoed in the pretty pink bow-ornamented package outside the bathroom door here.
HGTV's Celebrity Holiday Homes designer Robin Baron transforms the home of ex-NFL star and CBS sports radio host Tiki Barber into a holiday wonderland, featuring two red Christmas trees flanking the fireplace with a boxwood panel over the TV with wreath of red glitter roses.
Throughout her space, designer Ginger Curtis puts a modern, black and white twist on traditional Christmas decorations. Using her home's contrasting black and white color palette as a base line for her design, Ginger added white stockings monogrammed with her family's initials and other Christmas decorations like the Christmas wreath and the Cypress tree in the corner of the living room instead of a traditional Christmas tree.
Keeping it cozy and glamorous, this Halloween porch decor features a chic white twig wreath. Add some Christmas ornaments or ribbon and it easily transitions to your next holiday. Cool black branches turn an existing garden pot into great Halloween decor when you add some moss at the base. Keep pillows and throws handy in wooden bins for cool nights.
We adore this playful and unexpected autumnal design from Jennifer Hadfield of Tatertots and Jello. A contemporary blend of blues—aqua, navy and cobalt—really make the traditional pumpkin orange pop. Along with the darling swag and homemade wreath, the potted plants, lanterns, pumpkin décor and a painted “autumn” sign really bring together this fun and festive front porch.
Great design is all about striking a balance between big and small, hard and soft, plain and fancy—and holiday decorating is no different. For a look that’s rich and visually exciting, but not overdone or overwhelming, try to mix ornate elements (like the ribbon-and-bauble-bedecked garlands) with something simpler (like an unadorned magnolia wreath).
The entryway of a Tudor-style home features ferns, vines and a floral wreath. Antique wicker furniture was painted charcoal gray to match the trim. The furniture is covered with black and white Sunbrella fabric trimmed in garden green. The bright green is repeated on the wicker stool and the fringed pillows.
Christmas is the perfect opportunity to pull out those vintage mementoes you've kept tucked away in an attic or closet. Atlanta designer Mallory Mathison added a simple Target wreath to this classic hobby horse, accessorized with a bright red bow for the perfect seasonal touch in this little boy bedroom. Continuing the red theme, vintage twin beds have been painted a cheerful cherry red to beautifully contrast with the room's blue accents.
This natural holiday mantel uses lime green decor for a punch of color. A rustic nest wreath with a silver-plated star and green ribbon is displayed perhaps to celebrate a family member serving in the armed forces. Leaf sprigs and handmade paper garland complete this simple mantle.
Edgy and industrial: two common words associated with tween and teen room design. Collect used cans and use them to create a one-of-a-kind door wreath by drilling holes into the bottom of each can, then fastening the cans together side by side with twine or rope threaded through each hole. For an extra layer of contrast, wrap fabric scraps around every other can.
Elaborate window decor is often dreamy but can also take a lot of time to complete. Keep it simple with an extra long strand of garland draped from the top of your windows along with a bare wreath in the center. To keep it all lit up, stick with a strand of frosted globe lights tacked up around the outside edge of the window trim.
To update a wreath for the winter, use white paint and fake snowflakes, like New York City interior designer Eduardo Rodriguez of The Designer Pad did for this wintery tablescape. He upcycled pinecones, which are dipped in white paint for a shimmery effect, and arranged them in terracotta pots that he painted white and gray. The rest of the pots hold colorful candies and cookies for a casual Scandinavian-inspired winter get-together.
Dress up hurricanes or pillar candles with miniature wreaths used as chargers. The key to achieving the proper look is a snug fit. First, pick up pillar candles or hurricanes, then based on the diameter, choose a wreath with an inside opening no more than 1/4-inch larger than the diameter of the hurricane or pillar candle.
This simple Country Christmas tree is ornamented with pine cones, brown glass balls, bronze disco balls, and letter and number stencils for a unique twist on traditional tree decorations. Brown paper packages tied with twine rest under the tree next to a wooden rocking horse. A yellow yarn wreath, light green polka dot stocking, and green stuffed toys add color against the dark drown painted brick wall.
A mantel can be a revolving spot for you to display photos, books and accessories that you own and have scattered in other rooms. Dena Stormer stacked up photos and accessories on books for her latest vintage mantel decor, and don't forget about the space underneath the mantel. You can take an existing wreath that you used during the holidays, remove any seasonal elements and weave in leaves or fake flowers.
