When it comes to holiday decorating, there are several ways to stay on trend while keeping your own style. More importantly, changing up your holiday style does not have to be a big expense. Samira Gagne the manager of trend and design for The Home Depot Canada, shares top ways to personalize your holiday space while keeping it simple:

Get wrapped-up in the holidays:

The presentation can be just as, if not more, exciting than the actual gift. Taking some time to think about how you’re going to package and wrap gifts is a great way to personalize and add your own unique flare to the gifts you’re giving your friends and loved ones this holiday season.

Add a personal touch to your holiday decorating:

Add your personal unique flare to your holiday décor items by embellishing your basic accessories like wreaths and porch trees with objects and trinkets collected by you and your family. Gagne recommends using things like acorns, pictures, ribbons, buttons, beads and snowflakes. Remember to decorate your home, beyond the tree or front door. Try filling a glass bowl with ornaments for a seasonal centre piece—and yes, she says, Home Depot has holiday décor ideas both in store and online at www.homedepot.ca.

Colour consistency:

Keep it simple and consistent. Stick to two or three colours when decorating your home for the holidays. Multiple colours can make your space feel cluttered.  For a classy spin on the traditional look, try replacing green décor items with cast iron candle holders or bowls.  The combination of the cast iron, gold and red is a stunningly beautiful and chic colour combination.
