How to Match Your Holiday Decor to Your Interior Design

Decorating for the holiday season is always a cheerful and festive affair–however, when it comes to matching your holiday decor to your existing interior design motif, it can sometimes be  daunting task to ensure a cohesive look. 

The good news is: The Kathy Kuo Home Design Team has a special holiday gift in store for you and it’s better than any wrapped box you might find under the tree! I’m here with my team to offer you the gift of know-how when it comes to how to match your holiday trimmings to the carefully curated home design you’ve crafted for yourself.

Additionally: If you’re feeling unsure about how you’d define your home’s style, before you decorate for the holidays, you may want to consider asking “Santa” for a Design Refresh under the tree! Our Design Refresh packages are a great way to give the gift of professional design help with a lower price point. I personally love this gift idea, especially for people who know a family member or friend has been dying to revamp their coffee table decor or find the perfect chandelier for their dining room, but just haven’t gotten around to it!

Holiday Decor for a French Country or Rustic Home

If your home’s interior design style falls under the styles of French Country, Farmhouse, or Rustic Lodge, you’ll want to focus on amplifying the warm and woodsy element of those looks in a seasonal way. Try gathering pine cones and colorful leaves from your backyard or local park to really bring nature into your home by combining them with decor pieces for a centerpiece or on your mantel. 

When it comes to choosing greenery and seasonal accoutrements, lean into items that feel handcrafted or pastoral. For example: Hand-crafted blown-glass trees from Simon Pearce reflect the rustic beauty of Vermont (where they’re made) and pair beautifully with greenery garlands on any rustic mantel or windowsill. Or, a classic French Country-style bench draped with ultra-cozy woven throw blankets makes for a picture-perfect Farmhouse chic holiday tableau. Bonus points if you have a fire place to light a crackling fire in for chilly nights!

Holiday Decor for a Modern or Hollywood Regency Home 

If your home feels more Mid-Century Modern, Modern Classic, or Hollywood Regency in its design sensibility, your first rule of holiday decor is to stick to geometric shapes, simple forms, and mixed metals (it metallics play a big part in your home decor, you’re already half way there with decorating for the holidays since gold and silver are the ultimate neutrals for the winter season). It’s also always super-fun and seasonal to create contrasting visual stories throughout your home by mixing your more modern and curated decor pieces with cozy holiday items.

Have fun with draping sprigs of fresh greenery throughout your home and artfully contrast it with furniture and decor with defined angles–you’ll love the juxtaposition of the natural and glamorous. And when playing with shapes–a bowl of classic ornaments perched thoughtfully on you favorite side table is always a good look, as is a Regency-style bookcase styled with a mix of modern decorative objects side-by-side with holiday flare.
