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.

5 Tips For Decorating Small Spaces For The Holidays1. 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)
