5 Festive Ways You Can Decorate Your Windows and Home for the Holidays


The holiday season is here! As you plan your decorations for the season, don't forget to include one of your home's most attractive features - the windows! Giving your windows a festive makeover is a quick and easy way to add a little more holiday magic inside and outside your home. Here are five great ideas to get you started. 

1. Velvet drapes - Velvet drapes inside your home around the holidays and throughout the winter add a warm and regal touch as soft velvet flows from floor to ceiling. Framing your windows when open or guarding against cold weather when closed, velvet drapes are a sophisticated touch to your interior decor that is both beautiful and functional. 

2. Garlands - Garlands can be made up of almost anything and can be hung across windows or around. Create a garland from cording and pinecones for a simple natural look or get the children involved and create cut paper garlands together. Use pre-made evergreen garlands to frame your window inside or out or try stringing cranberries for a simple but festive look. 

3. Ornaments - Hang extra ornaments inside your windows in place of your usual window covering. Use an existing curtain rod and hang the ornaments at different heights using string or fishing line. Try hanging star silhouettes instead of ornaments for a different look. 

4. Holiday greenery - Use holiday greenery inside and outside your windows for a quick and easy decorator's touch. Wreaths large and small are easy to find or make using real or faux materials. Hang large wreaths outside your windows with thick red ribbons or hang one or more smaller wreaths inside your windows to frame your outside views. Try evergreen or holly branches or a mix of both. Create a kissing ball from evergreen branches and mistletoe or try tucking evergreen twigs around the base of a candle. The opportunities to use holiday greenery in your decor are endless. 

5. Window boxes - Window boxes outside your home are a beautiful touch that can be used year round. For the holiday season, fill them with red and green holly or evergreen branches. Tie them up with ribbons or top off with gold ornaments. Add some twinkling lights to warm the look outside at night. 


Whatever decorations you choose, make the most of your beautiful windows inside and out this holiday season. Follow us on social media for more ideas as you bring the magic of the holidays to your home!

Utilizing Curtains on your Pergola

Summertime is the best time, but while the days are long, the summer months are unfortunately rather short. Don’t let the heat keep you from going outside; with the creative use of outdoor curtains on your pergola, you can have the privacy you need this summer, while keeping both the sun, wind, and bugs out. This will not only keep you and your family safe but will protect expensive outdoor furniture.
There are massive differences between indoor and outdoor curtains, in both style and fabric type. For outdoor curtains, our favorite options feature cotton canvases, polyester blends, acrylic and olefin. In fact, Olefin is considered a prime fabric to use. Research has shown that because of its lightweight, soft, and extremely durable weave, Olefin does not fade and is sure to last.
Providing Shade from the Sun Sitting outside in the summer heat can be tiring. Adding modern curtains to your pergola will keep you safe from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Not only is this perfect for a quiet r…
