Living Room Decorating

With the new year just hitting, you might be itching to switch things up at home a bit! So we’ve come up with all of our best decorating advice/ideas for your LIVING ROOM!!

 

Be creative with your coffee table.

Change things up a bit! Your coffee table doesn’t have to be filled with some big books and candles (unless that’s your jam). Try something more quirky like some homemade flower vases or hit the thrift store for something out of the ordinary that’ll be a conversation starter! 

 

Change up the ‘neutral’ look! 

Staying neutral is easy, but it’s really fun when you add some pops of color. Stick with neutral colors for your base pieces, like couches and the coffee table. Then, opt for a more brightly colored accent chair, like green or red. Choose art with bright colors in it for the walls. Pick out a fun lamp!

Keep your area in mind.

If you’re someone who lives at the beach, it might be fun to add a piece of coral to your mantle. If you’re someone who lives in the city, purchase a print of a map of the city you live in (or wherever you want!) and frame it!

Have fun with throw pillows. 

ALL the colors and ALL the textures! 

 

Add color to the floor.

When you have neutral furniture and/or walls, a brightly colored rug will STAND OUT. 

 

Focus on the fireplace.

If your fireplace is surrounded by brick, paint it a new color, like light gray or navy! Or choose some new tiles to add if it’s not brick.

Display books.

This one is common, but it’s so fun! If you love books, show the world (or at least everyone who comes to your house…)!

Holiday Party Ideas

Planning a holiday gathering this season, but running short on ideas? We’ve described a few fun themes to give you some inspiration!

 

Throw a movie marathon party!

Get out all of the blankets and pillows you’ve got to create a palette in the living room, get out your favorite holiday flicks, and invite a few friends/family over! Don’t forget to bake some cookies and treats either before or during!

 

Holiday snack or cookie swap.

Throw a small gathering where everyone brings a holiday snack or treat! You could also do a White Elephant gift exchange at this party! 

 

Throw a wreath-making party!

Have everyone bring one part of decorating wreaths, like ornaments, ribbons, lights, and so on.

 

Prepare a spread of brunch treats and have everyone bring something to share!

Don’t forget mimosa fixin’s! 

 

Plan an ornament crafting/hot chocolate party! 

Have everyone gather to create and decorate some fun ornaments to give as gifts or to keep. Sip on hot chocolate while you craft!

Thanksgiving Tablescape

Looking to add some life to your dining room table for Thanksgiving this year? We’re here to help you! 

 

Start with a fun tablecloth and placemats.

Find some fun plaid, red, orange, or green ones from Homegoods or Target and you’re set!

 

Next, pick out some pretty plates.

We like to stick with solid-colored ones so we can use patterns on tablecloths or napkins!

 

If you have some special sterling silver silverware, it’s always best to use that on special occasions.

If not, pick out some gold silverware at Target to use! It adds a pretty aesthetic. 

 

Choose some napkins that complement your tablecloth.

Use napkin rings that match your silverware!

 

Now, find some pumpkins at your grocery store to create a centerpiece with.

We like to make a circle with them around a pretty candle in the center of the table, or line them up in a line down the center of the table!

 

If you want to get really fancy with it, pick out some pretty leaves from outside, grab a gold or silver paint pen and write each guests’ name.

Then, place the leaves at each place setting! 

And that’s that! You’ve got a gorgeous Thanksgiving tablescape. Now, it’s time to let us come in and clean it up for you! Having your home cleaned right now is more important than it’s ever been before. Give us a call (404-913-6699) or a get quote online here.

Fall Decor Ideas

Do you love decorating for fall?! SAME. So we came up with some fun ideas to make your home aesthetic POP this fall.  

Blankets, throws, and pillows!

Find some fun plaid throw pillows and blankets for couches and beds. Pick out orange, rust, red, brown, cream, or gray blankets for beds! 

Pumpkins and gourds are your friends. 

Place all shapes, colors, and sizes all around your house (and outside, too of course!)

 

Add a fun centerpiece to your dining room and/or breakfast area tables!

Large, tall clear glass vases are very on-trend right now, so find some fun yellow flowers/plants to add to them. Or opt for clay pots/vases to add a lovely terracotta accent. Use pinecones, pampas grass, and cattail plants to add a rustic vibe.

 

Brighten up your powder room

Add a small vase with a couple of fresh-cut flowers (any orange, yellow, or red color works!) and a small pumpkin or two.

 

CANDLES!!

Add some yummy fall-smelling candles (we love the ones from Bath & Body Works or Target) to your coffee table and around the house. For the dining room table, pick out some colored candles (autumnal colors only!!).

And that’s that! You’ve got a gorgeous fall home to come home to. Now, it’s time to let us come in and clean it up for you! Having your home cleaned right now is more important than it’s ever been before. Give us a call (404-913-6699) or a get quote online here.
