And just like that, it’s turned cold and the holidays are just around the corner. I’m sure you’ve already started making your gift list and locked down your travel plans. Maybe you’ve even pulled the decorations out from the closet and looked up new recipes for Thanksgiving dinner. Whether your planning is underway for friends and family gathering at your home, or your company is planning a holiday party, we have some themes and styling that will be sure to put you on the nice list.
8 Festive Looks to Make Your Holiday Great
While skiing isn’t an option in Austin, we are all in for “lodging”. The cold weather makes everyone want to cuddle up by the fire with hot cocoa, perhaps with a splash of brandy, and stay cozy. We love bringing in touches of the outdoors in, like gold pinecones, or a faux fire pit. Pendleton flannel pillows and throws, along with rich leather pieces and rustic wood tables, will bring the classic look of Christmas into any space.
Down here in Texas, we like to think we have our own style. Bring a little bit of swagger into your space with Southern touches like gold antlers as centerpieces, decked out cactus arrangements, or cowhide rugs. Our Dylan Sofa in an elegant green velvet, mixed with the unpolished barrel cocktail table and a splash of tequila, will have your guests two-steppin into 2020.
Play with Color
Don’t be afraid to use bright colors with your holiday decor. Red and green are classic, but let’s get festive! Think hot pink tinsel trees, disco ball ornaments, sparkly glitter, and lots of rosé champagne. Plus I’m sure grandma would love to sit on a chair from Cardi B’s dressing room from this year’s Austin City Limits Music Festival.
Mad Men Holiday
You’re drinking a hot toddy, your boss is dressed like Santa, Otis Redding is playing on the record player...take yourself back in time for a classic Christmas. Hopefully Roger Sterling won’t cut Christmas bonuses this year, so you can waltz into the night one Martini at a time.
Happy Christmas British Pub
The holidays are so much more than getting wankered with your best mates. BUT we can still bring a jolly ole’ pub theme to your party. Put on your paper crown, serve mince pies and wassail, and enjoy each other’s company before the sunrises on Boxing Day.
You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out
Bringing a classic Christmas movie theme into your decor doesn’t have to be cheesy. We incorporated pieces from “A Christmas Story” like the infamous leg lamp into a company party last year. Our elegant pieces like the Azalea Daybed kept an upscale feel with small items with fun flare. Just don’t touch your tongue to the frozen flagpole!
Hopefully the Sugar Plum Fairy will bring you a celebration of sweets from around the world like chocolate from Spain, coffee from Arabia, tea from China, and candy canes from Russia. Your loved ones of all ages will be sure to enjoy this beautiful classic ballet decor to honor the Mouse King.
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive. It’s party season baby and we want to see you shake your thang. A Christmas Disco will be sure to get everyone celebrating and in high spirits leading into the new year. And what a year it has been, time to let loose. See you on the dance floor.
