Katie Gavigan of Katie Gavigan Interiors has a exceptional ability to mix influences from many different cultures to generate her very own colorful eclectic appear. It’s all grounded with experimented with and accurate decorating tactics, though. In truth, her beautiful and really colorful Christmas decor contains numerous demonstrations of how to decorate for any event in just about any style.
Katie is 1 of the many extremely talented designers taking component in our Holiday Design Challenge series here on The Home Depot Blog. We sent Katie a couple of boxes of Residence Depot Christmas decorations to see what fresh Christmas decorating concepts she’d come up with.
She decorated her little apartment for the holidays with plenty of vivid shade, contrasting textures and surprising information. She explains how she pulled it all together…
I love decorating for Christmas. Truly decking things out, piling on the sparkle and texture and lights – tons of lights! Envision my giddy excitement when The Home Depot invited me to their extremely own decorating “party,” and supplied boxes of supplies to play with. What an honor, and what exciting!
Ideally, I’ll have a very good slice of time set aside when I can truly immerse myself in the procedure. After surrounded by boxes of ornaments, ribbon and other pretties and the Christmas music is enjoying, I’m prepared to get began. This just may well be one particular of my favored days of the year! No surface is left untouched once the decorations start flowing. I go all out, and really like for each and every corner of the home to truly feel festive. On the flip side, maintaining factors uncomplicated is a priority as well… specially given it’s the busiest season of the yr for most of us. The Christmas cards you see over are basically taped to the door frame, and the star ornaments on a rather strand of ribbon give big affect. Using ribbon as reindeer “scarves” adds tons of persona.
The dining room was my assigned area for the Vacation Type Challenge. Correct off the bat, I knew I needed to use the various surfaces to generate layers of vacation goodness. Styling vignettes of any type is one of my favorite factors, and the genuine challenge for me was not to go overboard, specially offered my adore for color, pattern and layering! I couldn’t resist such as a couple of choices right here for your dining space buffet. Note that these ideas are quite versatile, and could be utilized to any surface that your residence allows… a kitchen island, coffee table, console or any table!
The initial illustration is far more of an every day set-up. A basic flower arrangement is the focal level, complimented by a few styling objects. From my leftover garland, I borrowed the berry clusters and caught them into the greenery. Combine it up in terms of shade, height, texture. All-natural aspects are great, this kind of as the lemons in the woven basket, each adding a touch of lifestyle. One more tip is to mix clearly “holiday”-themed objects with your favorite yr-round items! Just like when I’m decorating a area, I constantly combine higher/low, outdated/new and various designs. It keeps factors fascinating! Note how the extremely standard red plaid bow doesn’t read strictly “traditional” here.
Don’t be afraid to combine things you enjoy. Decorating principles are created to be broken, in my viewpoint. Perform about with different combinations until you have a balance you adore!
The painted wrapping paper you see on the presents in the photograph over couldn’t be simpler.
Commence with rolls of craft or butcher paper and grab any paint leftovers you have on hand (or purchase economical paint samples), and go crazy. From abstract swirls and strikes to regular stripes, I had so a lot enjoyable with this! Then, deck out the packages with unexpected combinations of ribbon and ornaments. I can’t make a decision which is my favourite design, and will certainly be revisiting this task in the near potential.
Or, if you’re internet hosting a get together and need the surface to be much more practical, use a mix of trays, bowls, baskets and plates for food and drinks. Search about your house for exciting vessels.
Two of these baskets had been borrowed from their typical spots as wall decor! Grab a stem or leaf from the flowers as garnish. A bountiful show beckons guests. Combine in tiny bowls of ornaments. Loose ornaments, fruit, greenery on a table are also excellent!
This corner table turned out to be the excellent location to incorporate garland. I do Enjoy garland strung over a doorway, but at times a more straightforward answer is ideal… and this could not have been less difficult!
Beginning with a common strand of garland, I layered on stems of greenery from the florist for a fuller search. (Nearer to Christmas, grab totally free tree trimmings from any tree nursery!) And for the considerably-needed Christmas lights, I identified these genius (!!) battery-operated light strands on a trip to The House Depot. The lights are small but genuinely bright. And the super-thin wire is not an eyesore at all. This is right up there on the listing of greatest inventions ever, in my book. Pretty and practical.
See the slice of lilac taper? It’s a battery-operated candle that I spray-painted. I adore how it turned out, and what a basic venture! The sky’s the restrict with colour possibilities.
Right after decking out the ‘extra’ tables in the space, the dining table decor necessary to be simple and clean.
This room is a rather tiny area and items can get also hectic, really speedily! In light of this, I opted to forego a tablecloth to give the area some breathing area. Continuing with the theme of standard with a twist, the green napkins and red plaid bows really truly feel like Christmas even though the sudden touches of softer pinks lend lightness and character.
The unique tablescape contains a centerpiece of quite silver bulbs which may be just a tad also high for table conversation, and can just be eliminated throughout the meal if essential. The assortment of little flower arrangements and a variety of candles left behind are more than ample for a rather tabletop for the duration of the meal.
You can see a striped pillar candle in the photograph above. That was yet another quick DIY. Stripes of tape wrapped close to this candle and another rapid spray paint work, and voila!
On the white tabletop, I wanted to consist of a subtle layer of separation in the center. I used a spare piece of the painted wrapping paper (from over), and I really like the funky element it lends to the table.
Silver ornaments had been incorporated all through the space for continuity. Examples include the chair-back decorations as well as the green ribbon show filling the empty far corner.
Nothing says Christmas really like a vivid red wreath! To personalize it just a bit, I added rather orange ribbon and bead garland. Sophisticated, unique and rapid!
And just like that, our dining room is prepared for Christmas celebrations massive and tiny! I might not wait right up until December.
