The holidays are here (we can’t believe it either). If you’re anything like us, you’re busy getting your homes ready for the holiday seasons– whether that means hosting or just making it feel extra cozy for the merriest time of the year. Here are the best ways to shop our marketplace for the holiday season.
Outfitting your home for the holidays
Creating a cozy space has everything to do with seating. We recommend starting with a contemporary sofa as a base that is large, comfortable, and versatile. These top brands have the best modern staples.
Once you have a sofa anchoring the room, look into adding some other contemporary items to the mix. Shopping our floor model selection is a great option to find items that will naturally pair well with your contemporary sofa — how about a bar cart in your living space? A sleek credenza for your TV?
The dining room sets the landscape of your evening. Ensuring you have a large table is always a top priority. From there complete the look with these dining necessities. Starting with a clean backdrop will allow your table settings to shine during the holidays. The spotlight should be on the home cooked meal after all!
Once you have the basics covered, it’s time to mix styles. While many AptDecorators shop for modern brands and floor models, AptDeco also has a wide selection of vintage items. Nostalgia plays a huge role in making homes cozy for the holidays — think about your childhood home, your grandparents home… it’s likely that vintage items with history helped paint that picture. You can likely find similar items in our vintage treasure hunt. Alternatively, if you prefer a more curated selection, our best of vintage section will show you mid-century modern items and other highly coveted staples from the past.
Last but not least, you have to accessorize it up to get that cozy feeling. Keeping your light sources low and scattered through the space will create an ambiance. We recommend going for vintage lighting — an interesting lamp can add a lot of personality to your space and also be a conversation starter to visiting family and friends. In addition, a cool vintage rug would add a great base to contrast the more contemporary furniture items. A cozy wool rug does wonders for those post-dinner family games in the living room.
