Ornaments aren’t just for the tree, use them all around your home! Set them in a decorative bowl or fill a big, glass jar. String them up as a garland, or even add them to a centerpiece on your Christmas table.

Engage the Senses
Fill your home with a holiday scent like Christmas tree, cinnamon, Christmas cookie, etc to create a home that is instantly inviting the moment you step inside. Incorporate aromatic candles or diffusers with seasonal scents or mulled spices to evoke a warm and inviting ambiance.
Find or create a playlist of your favorite Christmas music to play in the background whenever you want. Enhance the festive feel by dimming the lights and adding flickering candlelight to create a cozy and magical atmosphere throughout your home.
Merry & Bright
Incorporate string lights, fairy lights, and candles wherever and whenever you can for that merry and bright feeling. Include natural colors like warm white, amber, and gold into your lighting scheme. These warm tones create a cozy and inviting atmosphere, reflecting the latest trend of embracing natural elements in Christmas decor.
Christmas vs Winter
It’s great to play around with decor that’s specifically Christmas, but also think about what pieces can double or be altered to function as winter decor. If you go with decor that’s more neutral or timeless, you can keep it out around all year if you want!

What other Levtex Home collections are worth checking out for more subtle holiday bedding styles?
If you want something that can easily extend past the holiday season while still feeling festive, focus on color scheme over patterns. A solid, neutral duvet cover or a quilt with a simple striped or floral design can easily be paired with pops of traditional Christmas colors or Christmas accents and then be restyled and reused after the holidays.
