Holiday Gift Guide

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.
