Living rooms, family rooms, and all the spaces in between serve as the perfect palette for your creativity. Let the Rhode Island Design Center experts help foster contemporary holiday living room ideas to help you and your loved ones prepare for the upcoming holidays!

Decorating for the Holidays: Start with Furniture Choices

Designing suitable interior holiday decor is as much a science as it is an art form. Let's begin with furniture choices. The furniture you choose to populate your living space serves as a centerpiece and guiding structure for all ancillary design choices.

From the sofa to the loveseat, coffee table to armchair, your living room's furniture speaks volumes about your home. Everything from the color of the upholstery to the materials used in their design speaks to your aesthetic values.

If you're looking to insert holiday decor, living room furniture is the place to start. Fortunately, Rhode Island Design Center has you covered. Our in-house design experts can help match your tastes with a piece from our broad array of vendors and superior quality furniture.

Add in Traditional Elements

Once you've decided on furniture and a central theme, it's time to add traditional elements such as snuggly textiles like blankets, throw pillows, or even accent rugs. The key is leveraging holiday-themed colors to your benefit.

Traditional Christmas decor in the living room is all about reds and greens. This year, why not try something new?

Add fresh, sparkling white accents mixed with dark brown or black to help simulate a snowy landscape. Or you could accent your holiday decor living room in a monochromatic blue scale. Try something understated with pastel pinks to create a dream-like atmosphere, or turn everything you know about interior design on its head with royal purples or a multi-colored array.

Rhode Island Design Center features unlimited options from the industry's finest brands regardless of the color scheme.

Add Statement Pieces

Furniture is more than just couches, recliners, and coffee tables. When deciding on holiday decor, living room statement pieces are necessary to tie the whole look together. Lamps, end tables, centerpieces, and wall art help complete your chosen theme.

Whether you choose neutral-colored products that fit year-round or items that add to the holiday color scheme, you should always mix statement pieces with your dedicated holiday decors, such as wreaths, garlands, and other holiday-themed decorations.

Touches of Illuminating Metallics & Glowing Candlesticks

While cozy, fireside scenes are the norm during holiday months, there's also a certain majesty associated with the season. Help accent your chosen holiday color scheme with metallic items such as candlesticks and serving bowls.

Add An Inviting Dining Room Set for The Whole Family

The holidays are a time for celebration. Your holiday design choices shouldn't be limited to the living room; they should permeate the entire house.

Consider adding complimentary, holiday-themed dining set to your dining room, complete with a centerpiece that adds visual interest to your chosen colors.

Comfortable and Stylish Seating Options Are a Must

Nothing communicates the comfort of the holiday season like a cozy place to sit. Make sure to integrate seating choices, such as sofas, loveseats, ottomans, and recliners, complete with holiday throw blankets and accent pillows. Neutral colors can help augment your holiday design choices while providing a canvas for your creativity year-round.
