5 Tips For Decorating Small Spaces For The Holidays

As much as I love the cheer that holiday decorations bring to a home in a small space it can get VERY overwhelming.  If you are a fellow apartment dweller, or just like minimalist holiday decor, here are a few tips on fillng your space with holiday cheer without going overboard.

Small Space Holiday Decor

1. Keep It Neutral

Choosing pieces within a neutral color palette will keep the decor from overwhelming your small space.  If you love the traditional Christmas colors try adding just a few pops of red or metallic to create that classic holiday feel. (image via Sarah Sherman Samuel)

2. Add Warmth With Light

White Globe lights, twinkle lights, or candle light stay subtle and sophisticated with their lack of color while bringing a cozy vibe to a small space. (image via Broste Copenhagen)

5. Play With Texture

Instead of using pattern to add interest play with different textures such as felt, pinecones, leaves, branches, and wood.  The combination of textures will build interest without overpowering a small space. (image via Earnest Home Co.)
