Holiday Decorating with Studio McGee

Style Every Room

Don't miss out on decorating opportunities in unexpected rooms like kitchens and bathrooms. If you're like us, you'll spend  lot of time in the kitchen. Since you still need a lot of useful surface space, you don't want to clutter it up with nonfunctional decor. Instead, we created a holiday color palette with kitchen staples. 

Our green glass soap, kitchen greenery, kitchen towel, green camp bowls and pomegranates add that holiday charm without being kitschy. 

We softened up our green and red colors by adding wood details like trays, cutting boards, and spoons. Our faux christmas holly branches and faux pine branches give our kitchen a tall centerpiece all season long.

Go Bigger


In your everyday decor, you would typically go a little simpler. For the holidays, you can be a little more playful and pack in decorations. Even though it's jam packed, it doesn't look cluttered. We used repetition in our theme and added levels with different heights in a neutral color palette. 

Holiday Decorating Ideas

Start with placing your anchoring pieces, like a lamp and a tray. From there, fill in the rest. We like to swap out our family photos and put them in holiday frames. Our gold foil frame is good all year long, but adds a nice shine for the holidays.

Similar guidelines apply for decorating your mantel for the holidays. We like to start with a focal point, go bigger and fuller with our decor, and create levels! You can read our tips on styling a holiday mantel for more ideas.
