Here are few ideas for adding holiday charm to your kitchen.
· Fill clear glass cookie jars or vases with beautiful Christmas accessories or ornaments, using unexpected items are fun. These decorations work well all year round by changing up the contents to reflect the current or upcoming season/holiday.
· One thing that adds a lot to the kitchen at anytime of the year is to decorate above the cabinets. If you have space above the wall cabinets, then you have a great place to decorate! For the holidays, you can put up some garlands, greenery or other holiday decorations.
· Dress up your table with a nice holiday tablecloth, play with layers and textures if your going to go monochromatic. You can have fun with Christmas theme dishes, placemats, glasses and silverware. You can even leave it setup all during the holidays and it will add a festive look to your table.
You can even make or buy matching slipcovers for the chairs or make a trip to a fabric store and buy sheer fabric and wrap it around the chair backs to make a bow… Of course, don’t forget the centerpiece.
· The centerpiece should anchor your overall theme, it will spark ideas and should be the common thread of the space. A great centerpiece will help to establish colours, scale, textures, materials and style.
· You can also add some holiday décor around the windows of your kitchen by draping garlands or greenery over the window valance or add a wreath in the center of the window.
· Place festive scented candles around the kitchen, we’re thinking scents like cinnamon, vanilla or pine.
· To complete the look and pull it all together add holiday accents! Use pot holders or kitchen towels and place poinsettia or a miniature Christmas tree on the kitchen counter.
Adding holiday charm to your kitchen is about creating an atmosphere. Above are some ideas that should inspire and spark your creativity but just remember less is more.
