Maximizing your holiday decor

OMG you guys!  I finally have a hot minute to sit down and write something.  First of all, I’m sorry for neglecting Domicile, fortunately I have been out straight with real estate and training some amazing new people on my team this past spring and summer.  Oh, and we took a 2-week trip to Ireland (like 5 posts coming on those adventures)!

Anyway, the other day I decided to break out my holiday/winter throw pillows and organize my addiction as well as change out all the summer bedding at the house.   It’s a little too early for Christmas décor so how do you maximize your purchases for more than just 1 month a year?

First off don’t spend a ton.  Home Goods, Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, and even Hobby Lobby or Michael’s can have good deals on holiday décor especially if it’s after the season and you can stock up for next year!  Second try to choose prints that will carry through winter and just have a few extra Christmassy/Holiday ones for an extra pop of color.  Even the sheet sets at Home Goods are to die for and totally affordable.  I tend to alternate with a lot of neutral tones so I can mix in the same pillows/sheets/throws throughout the different seasons.  I also have the Ektorp IKEA couches so I like to switch out the slip covers for different seasons as well and with 2 Golden Retrievers that aren’t even allowed on the couches they still need to be washed frequently!

See below for some inspired fall and holiday décor that you can maximize this season!  Happy decorating!


Tans, whites, some sweet $39 antler sheets from Marshall’s and this gorgeous wool throw blanket I brought back from the Blarney Woollen Mills in Ireland!  Just flip the Merry pillow around if it’s not December yet! holidaybedding-1holidaybedding-3holidaybedding-6holidaybedding-7


More antlers, some buffalo check from IKEA, and a mix of grays set a fall tone.  holidaybedding-9holidaybedding-11holidaybedding-12


I saw this trick years ago maybe it was in Martha Stewart but I thought it was brilliant… you put a fitted sheet over the box-spring mattress.  1. If it’s ugly it hides it, and 2. you can even change that out for the seasons and to match your other bedding!  This old flannel one matched perfectly with the Buffalo check duvet set from IKEA!holidaybedding-17holidaybedding-19holidaybedding-21holidaybedding-22


I’m legit obsessed with these skier sheets from Ralph Lauren.  I picked them up last year at Home Goods and the only downside is that I can use them year round!


White slip covers!  Love love love them, BUT they are not easy to keep clean and I don’t even have kids!  I just can’t get enough of a white couch!  I also use 3-4 of these pillows throughout the year.holidaybedding-26holidaybedding-27

I hope this gave you some inspiration for the holiday season!  Wishing you and yours all the holiday feels, vibes, and whatever else the kids say these days!
