Simple Holiday Decor to Add a Festive Cheer to Any Home

This simple holiday decor makes use of colors like red, green and beige to create a classic look.

Laura Stewart, of Junque Cottage, styled her living room for this year’s Holiday Style Challenge here on The Home Depot Blog. After sending Laura some Home Depot Christmas decorations, we challenged her to style a space fit to her taste. Take a look at how Laura’s simple holiday decor came together!

This week I am so excited to finally be able to share my space with you for this years Home Depot Holiday Style Challenge! I have been working on this for a few weeks now and I love how it all turned out. You might have seen some behind the scenes peeks if you follow me over on Instagram.

Christmas is such a magical time of year. Family comes together, the little ones are filled with such excitement preparing for Christmas morning, and the house is decorated from top to bottom.

Stunning Christmas Tree

The centerpiece and most known Christmas tradition is of course the Christmas tree. This year’s tree is the 7.5 ft. Pre-Lit Emperor Fir and is available at The Home Depot. Let me tell you guys, this one is a real beauty. With over 7200 branch ends and 10,000 LED lights, it looks so real and is for a sure a showstopper.

Not only is it beautiful, assembling this tree was the easiest tree I’ve ever assembled. All I had to do was open the base, and then insert the bottom layer into the base. I connected the middle piece, then the top and that was it! Can you believe that? I usually spend over an hour or more assembling my faux tress and then putting on the lights.

What’s my favorite part of the tree? It has eight light settings! It comes with a foot pedal that you can use to select the perfect light setting. Twinkle, solid, fading, so many options to personalize your tree. My daughter loves pushing that button and watching the lights change. I love seeing the excitement in her eyes in the evenings when we sit around the tree.

This tree already has the lights attached and the connectors are located inside the poles, so there are no strings to attach to one another. The LED lights are small, so they don’t distract from the beauty of the tree, only enhance it.

At 7.5-ft. tall, this Martha Stewart Emperor Fir tree is the perfect height for most homes and spaces. I also like that there’s plenty of room from the floor to the base of the bottom branches to allow plenty of room for presents!

Natural and Rustic Accent Pieces

In addition to the tree, I purchased this gorgeous wreath that is battery operated with lights. I love that I don’t have to attempt to hide the chord on this one! It has a blinking option as well. With no chords to battle, I think I need to purchase four more for my exterior doors. I added the small ribbon bow on top just to tie it into the buffalo check ribbon I used on the garland and on the tree.

The garland is a must. I wish I had purchased two more. Over the windows would add touches of Christmas cheer. I prefer pre-lit garlands and wreaths to make decorating that much more simple. I also love that I can personalize these pieces with ribbons, ornaments and more.

It was difficult choosing which pieces I wanted because their selection of items in store and online is amazing. There were so many things in my online basket. I couldn’t decide, so I went in store instead. You can’t go wrong with any holiday décor item that The Home Depot offers.

I purchased a few battery-operated candles to add to the space to give it that extra soft glow. These are great because they can be used in so many spaces and not just for Christmas! These would be perfect in any vignette and would work great on your dining table!

I added a few extra simple holiday decor items that I already owned and I am so pleased with how this space turned out. We can’t wait until Christmas, but are so happy we get to enjoy this tree until then.
