Living room with examples of top holiday decor trends

Every year it feels like a new challenge. What do I need to prepare in my home to host the best holiday gathering ever? How can I be the ‘host with the most’?

 

There are a million considerations when getting your home ready to host friends and family for a special occasion. Sometimes it’s hard to know how to prioritize everything that you want to do, and need to do, before your doorbell rings.

 

At Smitty’s, we get a lot of questions from customers about what they can do to spruce up their homes for the holidays. Styles and trends change, but we’ve done some digging and are happy to let you know the top decor trends for this holiday season. We hope this helps!

 

Coat Trees

The coat tree has a long history and dates back to the Victorian era, when people would showcase their social position and exhibit their wealth by hanging the latest style of coats and hats in the front hallway.

 

The coat tree has come back into style — not so much to show off your style, but because it’s very practical and helpful.

 

The first thing people do when they enter your home is look for a place to hang their coats, scarves, and hats. Instead of taking coats and piling them all in a big heap on someone’s bed, a coat tree will keep coats hanging separately and organized. It will also make it easier for guests to retrieve their belongings as they leave.

 

This year, Smitty’s is excited to have coat trees in our showroom. Made from solid metal, this coat tree is stylish and sturdy and a great addition to your entryway.

 

Candle Holders

Candles are making a big comeback. The natural glow that candles provide will add warmth to any room in your home.

 

This year’s trend is to mix and match candles and candle holders. While you may wish to keep the colour or metal the same when candle holders are grouped together, mixing different sizes and shapes will create dynamic focal points on your dining table, console tables/side tables, and mantles.

 

If you have draperies, children, or pets, you may wish to consider getting battery operated candles for your votives and candle holders. There are some battery operated candles that are very realistic and will safely shine in your home, without the worry of anything catching fire.

 

Throw Cushions

Adding pops of design and colour throughout your home is definitely on-trend this season. Throw cushions are an easy way to accomplish this trend.

 

Throw cushions will add comfort and a touch of fun to your living room, den, bedrooms, and even dining room — for added whimsy, you could have a different throw cushion for each guest at your table.

 

When hosting guests for an overnight, adorning the guest bedroom with colourful throw pillows is a detail that will surely make them smile.

 

Available in a variety of fabrics, you can mix and match colours, designs, and textures.


Come and visit Smitty’s to find all the final touches you need for your holiday decor.
