One of the easiest ways to add a holiday feel to any room is by adding anything metallic for a bit of sparkle. Whether you chose to do something in the traditional holiday spirit like a reindeer or nutcracker or be bold and playful with a disco Santa gnome, placing these items on a coffee  or side table add instant holiday glam. The great thing is that gold and silver are neutrals that will work in any space.

Garland is another way to add an instant holiday look to a space. Typically garland has been seen gracing fireplace mantles but so many homes are opting out of the traditional mantle for a more clean facade. If this is the case, you can add the greenery to a console table. You can leave it simple or add that extra layer with ornaments and ribbon.

Open shelving allows for the perfect opportunity to inject holiday decor in the space. Select a few pieces to add to your open shelves. Keep things balanced by selecting items that work with your existing display. In this case, staying neutral is important. White glass snowmen and trees are the perfect touch to add to the builtin. Not every shelf needs to be changed though; replacing a few objects is enough.

Red poinsettias have long been known as a symbol of Christmas and the traditional Christmas flower. Thankfully, it is not our only option; the pink poinsettia is beautiful and the perfect choice for this space.
