With the holidays just around the corner, it’s time to start decorating your home and preparing for the hours of stories, laughs, and new memories that come with the season. One of the best ways to get that perfectly on-theme interior is to use paint. It’s amazing what a simple splash of color here and there can do to a room. Need some inspiration? Here are a few of our favorite ways to spruce up your abode just in time for the festivities.

Warm Accent Walls

Adding a bit of color can completely change how the room feels. Choosing an accent is a great way to break up the monotony that comes with the standard white walls we’ve all grown accustomed to. The extra color does a good job of tying in physical decorations like fall foliage for Thanksgiving, candles and dradles for Hanukkah, and pinecones for Christmas. Using warmer tones, especially during this time of year, will really help your home stand out. For a fun effect, try touching up the corner where you sit your Christmas tree or Menorah – it’s awesome for showcasing those presents. Whether you’re looking for reds and oranges, or more of a subtle touch with an earthy brown, our color experts will help you pick the perfect shade for your decorating needs.

Holiday Stencils

Ever walk into a house and notice that the owner did a phenomenal job with the interior design, but you just can’t put a finger on what their secret is? That’s where this next idea comes in. If you’re looking for a subtle addition to your home that makes a fantastic complement to other festive pieces, painting a holiday pattern like a wreath or autumn leaves might just do the trick. A room like the kitchen is a nice place to start, since it’s so engrained in our celebratory culture. Everyone knows that the key to a good party is good food – so why not serve that food in an equally wonderful setting?  This year, think outside of the box and use a stencil to achieve that fun background piece that really ties the room together.

Patterns

Another way to change things up is to add a pattern to your walls. Using a special paint roller, you can put just the right touch of contrast to a room in minutes. All you need to do is pick the design that fits your home the best. Here’s what we’re talking about. What’s really convenient about going this route is its ease of application. Normally, you’d have to go out and find wallpaper, which can take countless hours to install properly – even with a professional. The paint roller method skips a step and lets you add your desired level of adornment in any space, on your own time. Choosing an elegant scheme to paint your walls can do wonders for your decorating, and definitely take things up a notch. Family and friends alike will rave about the bursts of texture and creativity throughout the home.
