I usually base my holiday home decor on my current fashion mood. Last year I was all about winter white outfits so I created a winter wonderland in my home. This year, I can’t get enough of jewel tones, specifically emerald green. I even kicked holiday season early with a green jumpsuit that I can’t wait to break out for a holiday party.
When I thought about bringing emerald green into my home for holidays, I remembered my trip to Paris earlier this year. So many chic cafes had deep green velvet contrasted with feminine blush. I decided the combo was perfect considering all the blush accents in my mostly white home!
holiday pillows & throws
I always start with pillows and throws because they instantly change the feel of your space. I kept some of my staple pillows on my couch, my ombré fuzzy pillow (now on sale!) and a blush velvet pillow. Then I added green and holiday sayings to the mix with a beaded peace pillow, snowflake pillow (similar here) and green velvet pillows. I usually keep this blush faux fur blanket in my bedroom (it’s the softest thing ever!). But I brought it out to drape on my chaise lounge.

On top, I decorated my stone tray with a holiday candle, rose gold glitter tree, fresh flowers and my favorite dog ornament. I love using ornaments as decor. I filled a decorative bowl with green marble ornaments and my DIY ornaments (see this post on how to DIY your own ornaments!).
holiday mantel decor
I also used ornaments to decorate my media console. Since I don’t have a fireplace, I use my media console as my holiday mantel. In past years, I’ve done fresh garland. This year, I put the fresh flowers and greens in vases so they’d last all month. Eucalyptus and tree garland dries out, so you really only have to replace the fresh roses every week or so. I also cut up some gold garland to make the floral arrangements look more holiday.
I don’t have a real tree so I added more greenery with wreaths and floral arrangements. I used faux wreaths on my wall lighting to avoid a mess. But I incorporated the delicious smelling eucalyptus and fresh garland from my mantle to put in large white vases. For the final step, I placed my DIY ornaments on my white birch tree.
