I spy with my little eye, pom pom garlands throughout this photo in one of our model living rooms. Adding pom pom garlands into your living space, whether that be on your bookshelf, fireplace mantel, or coffee table, will take the Christmas spirit to another level. They also add a soft texture into the room for a cozy feel. See how Emily Henderson's living room incorporates pom poms around her family's christmas tree and it looks super stylish.

2. Neutral Ornaments on Christmas Tree

Keeping it simple is the ultimate motto to remember when decorating for the holidays. It's easiest to keep your home decor in neutral colors if you're worried about it coordinating and looking classic. You can never go wrong with silver and gold accents, from silver ornaments to gold table décor such as candles and trays.

Don't be afraid to add a touch of color with garland or fun ornaments sparingly throughout your Christmas tree, keeping the main ornaments neutral. This way, it's not an eyesore when you get home looking at your decorations and instead, it's cozy and comforting.

Stars! Stars are the perfect symbol to feature in your home on your Christmas tree, as hanging art, or as a kitchen tray. If you're worried about making a design mistake, only use a few decorations on your entry Christmas tree. Try to incorporate small decorations throughout the home, while making the living room the focal point and destination for all things festive.

3. Gold and Silver Decor on Fireplace Mantel

Once again, silver and gold create a stylish and sophisticated feel into your home. It's extremely easy finding these in decor during the holidays. Add natural textures from wood to plants and artificial greenery for pops of green that coordinate with the Christmas tree. Find mini trees to add on your coffee table, side table, entryway, or fireplace mantel.

4. Wreath and Merry Christmas Garland

Who said you can only add a wreath to the front door of your home? No one! You can also have a wreath in your mudroom space, entryway, or above your fireplace mantel to add a touch of charm. Merry Christmas or other worded garlands are an adorable and fun way to feature holiday spirit, like this red one! Include other textures with pillows and stockings in plaid, stripes, velvet, polka dots, etc.

Lastly, find other random spots of your home to feature festive decor, such as your kitchen island, side table, bookshelves, bedroom nightstands, and more. An easy way to do this is by finding a tray, placing extra ornaments and simple decor into it and organizing it on a table. You can also find timeless figurines from nutcrackers to reindeer that you can unpack every year and not have to think twice to whether or not they match any new decor you may find for the year.

It's also quite simple finding Christmas decor in almost any home store or local grocery shop, from Target to At Home, with online stores like Wayfair so you don't have to leave the house to find the decorations.
