Thanksgiving Decor Tips: Insights from Interior Design Experts
As we plan to gather with our family to show gratitude this Thanksgiving, many of us are looking for ways to make our space more seasonal (and cozy) — perfect for this beautiful occasion.
Whether you’re hosting an intimate gathering or a large Thanksgiving party, our team at Noelle Interiors has collected a few stylish decor tips — straight from the interior designers — to set the right ambience for your celebrations. So, let’s get started!
1) Factor in Textiles
Because temperatures are dropping low outdoors when Thanksgiving is around, the ambiance indoors should be nice and cozy. And the easiest way to get this done is by using plenty of textures. Use woven fabrics and chunky knit blankets, as well as plenty of throw pillows. Bonus points if you add natural materials, such as wood and stone. (More on that below.)
2) Set a Harmonious Color Palette
Seasonal or not, the best decor always starts with a harmonious color palette. This Thanksgiving, consider warm and earthy tones for a cozy atmosphere. For example, browns, reds, and oranges. If you’re thinking out of the box — a white and gold palette (with some florals tossed in) never goes wrong!
3) Opt for Natural Materials
Introducing nature to your Thanksgiving decor can create a sense of tranquility. And, as Manhattan Beach interior designers, we believe flowers and greenery can easily add to the beauty of any interior. Create a table piece with a stunning floral arrangement, and collect fallen leaves to display in a glass bowl on your mantel. Decorative pumpkins and gourds are also a great idea, as they are reminiscent of the season.
4) Add a Personal Touch
Because Thanksgiving is about giving thanks, going the extra mile to show gratitude can really enhance your decor (ref: personal touches). For example, write small handwritten notes showing gratitude and display them in your decor. You can also showcase family heirlooms and other items that hold meaning to your family. If you’re entertaining guests, consider small decor details, such as custom place cards with your guests’ names (and a little prayer) handwritten on them.
Thanksgiving is all about collecting with loved ones and appreciating the little things in life. And by sprucing up your home with seasonal decor tips, you can create a welcoming haven where everyone gathers around the table to enjoy cherished moments together. Speaking of which, interior designers have a knack for stunning tablescapes (here are stunning Thanksgiving table-setting ideas for inspiration).
