6 Tips to Accessorizing your Home for the Holidays

It is the time of year that we are all filled with excitement as we start thinking about decorating our homes for the holidays. Holiday decorating is about picking the right accessories to create the mood you want. It can be as traditional as adding some stockings and a tree to setting the right mood for the holidays by adding color, texture and just making your home feel cozy.

Adding Color & Texture

1). Choose warm and spicy colors, or maybe something with mirror work or metallic details to catch the light and add to a glowing effect.  We have traditional to trendy pillows in a variety of colors and motifs.

Holiday pillows2). Use richly textured throws and pillows. At Amish Merchant our pillows & throws come in a variety of textures, from traditional woven tapestry or quilted looks, to bold printed fabrics, along with warm fleece & wool throws & hooked wool pillows and rugs.

3). Amish Merchant is also home to wall decor, placemats, table runners and much more, most of which is American Made.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how simple and inexpensive it is to add new throws and pillows to your décor to get you home holiday ready.

Adding Warmth

4). Candles instantly add both warmth and ambiance to a room.  Nothing says cozy on the inside like a flame, and our very fragrant candles from both Swan Creek & Bridgewater Candle Companies will make your home smell like your holiday dinners in the oven, or the Christmas Tree just went up!  You pick the scent that works best for you as we have a large selection to choose from! They are also clean burning and long lasting!

Candles 25). Bring the holiday celebration into every room. Bathrooms are a great place to put decorative scented wax pottery, pillars, spheres & bowls from Habersham.  You gain the smell of a candle burning without worrying about a flame!
At  Amish Merchant we also have a selection of accents to add the holiday spirit to these often overlooked areas such as Entryways and Bathrooms.

Cozy Up Your Home

6). Give your space a different look and feel for this magical time of year. Simply rearrange your furniture so the focal point is the fireplace or wherever you hang stockings. Don’t have a fireplace?  Arrange the furniture to create the best layout for cozy conversations in front of the Christmas tree.
