Get The Look: Traditional Holiday Cheer

This grand Fraser fir tree, with a subtle holly-and-bells theme and traditional Christmas decorations, makes a classic holiday statement.

Nothing says “deck the halls” or “tis the season” quite like classic Christmas décor. When the air gets cool and they days get short, there’s nothing like pulling out the Christmas decorations to get in the spirit of the season. It’s a look we’ve all come to know and love: a grand Fraser fir tree, holly, bells, green garland, and a tidy magnolia leaf wreath. We’ve gathered some of our favorite ways to achieve this look with traditional Christmas decorations: be it a short commitment, like a striped knit stocking, or something more long term, like bold red walls. Classic and contemporary ornaments mix for a balanced look, and punch graphic wrapping paper refreshes the look. With so much going on this season we know how hard it can be to find the time to pick out the perfect accent. So we’ve done the dirty work: here’s our favorite traditional holiday décor elements.
