Holiday inspiration

A quick introduction,
Hi! My name is Heather and I am the new Digital Marketing Manager for Stone's. As things have changed hands and I stepped into the role we took a little break from blogging for a bit and now we're back.
I'm a writer and photographer so I'm excited to do a bit of blogging for Stone's about homes and more. So stay tuned for more from me, and if you have anything you'd like me to address let me know!

With so many options it can be hard to figure out how to decorate for the holidays. It's easy to collect a mishmash of decorations and just put them wherever they fit around the house but it's just as easy for that style of decorating to make your home feel cluttered. Choosing a theme or decorations that mean something to you is a great way to declutter all the Christmas knickknacks and make decorating more purposeful.
So whether your decorating your new home or looking for some inspiration for a fresh decor start inspo boards are never a bad way to begin.
I've put together some inspiration for different themes so take a look and let me know what you think!

Blue Christmas

A blue Christmas doesn't have to mean sad, decorate your home with a calming hue and enjoy the break from red and green for a while. Silver and Navy is also a popular variation and gives the Blue a nice little holiday sparkle. So break out all your Nova Scotia Tartan, and add some blueberries to those boughs.


A minimalist approach

It's an old saying, but still rings true, less is more. The minimalist approach for decorating certainly lives by this, making it easy to decorate with this theme. Each piece you pick should be deliberate and have a spot in mind when you purchase it to avoid ironically ending up with a home cluttered with an excess of minimalist decor.
Neutral or black and white can be a good place to start if you're looking in this direction. Think about what you would like each room to look like and then shop for that image.


A traditional Christmas

If you're going to lean into Christmas decorating you might as well do it right! If you're a fan of Christmas nostalgia and that warm fuzzy holiday feeling a traditional decor is probably the best way to go. Think lots of red and green, and don't forget the twinkle lights, garland, and holly berries! I think it's safe to say if it gives you a little nostalgic feel, it's a good fit.


A Rustic feel

You may not live in the country or even on a farmhouse but it doesn't mean you can't still have a rustic feel around the holidays. Not everyone is into feeling fancy, and if that's not you, then lean into it! There's a chance some rustic decor is your thing. And the best part is, you don't even have to worry about if things get banged up putting them in storage, the more wear and tear, and scuffs, the better. Make sure you look for some exposed wood or metal, anything with a bit of birch bark, and fill your home with some plaid and tree boughs. Even if you sneak in a couple of real ones with the fake it will give your home that great smell.



Whether you've got kids or are a kid at heart or just have a holiday sweet tooth and want to keep some candy around, a candy Christmas sounds like a good way to decorate. Lollipops galore and even more candy canes are usually a good start and are an easy Christmas find. A candy-filled Christmas doesn't have to be all red white and green either, branch out and fill your home with bright candy colours and take real candy and make some easy DIY candy jars that will look just as good as they taste.
If it makes you feel like you're in Candyland then it's safe to say it will belong in your candy decorated house.


Whether it's one of these decor inspirations or another theme that's all your own, just remember that as much fun decorating your home is for the holidays is, don't let it get in the way of having a good christmas or stressing about having your home perfect. The most important part is to make it you, and something you're comfortable with living in.
