Decorate Your Entry For The Holidays

Decorate Your Entry For The Holidays

On Tuesday, October the 29th, Wisconsinites received a taste of what is inevitably around the corner- Winter and the Holidays.

As you are starting to unpack that winter gear consisting of boots, hats, and coats, take a step back to look at the entry space around your front door.

Does it still scream summer with wilted flowers, cracked flower pots, and old forgotten newspapers? Or are you ready for the holidays with a welcoming that makes even the Grinch smile?

We put together some fun and inviting entry plans for the holidays to help spark your ideas for the season.

Freshly Painted Entrance

Freshen Up- 

Brighten up your entry with a fresh coat of paint before the weather gets too cold, and the snow is a permanent fixture. Consider an eye-popping new color for the season? Go bold with red, gold, blue, or even an evergreen color. It is amazing what a gallon of paint can do for an entrance. If your door is shabby and dated, consider updating it to a new energy-efficient door professionally installed by a High Quality Contracting, Inc. expert. 

Elegant Clean Lines - A Timeless Entrance

Go Clean-

Clean and fresh lines add a bright and elegant feel to any front entry. It is never dated and always an elegant touch to a home.
Consider simple pieces of decor with a neutral palette and chic minimalist style. The decor in this photo is very stylish and yet so simple. What is more elegant than a clean white lantern with a mock candle in it?  The lights are a simple, clear color that highlights the evergreen trees lining the entryway. This remarkable entryway can easily be maintained in the coldest of weather and still look remarkably fashionable throughout the winter months.

Traditional Holiday Decor

Timeless Traditional Entrance

I cringe when I drive past the houses that are full of overkill of blow-up Santas, random cartoon characters, and dated old trendy decorations. Some pieces are timeless and traditional that reflect a sense of class and elegance, and others not so much. This beautiful home features the eternal evergreen wreaths and traditional light colors. The holly and bright red bows make the whole scene pop with a bit of color standing out against the brick. This type of entrance decor can make any home inviting and give that ” Old Holiday” feel to the neighborhood. A true classic entrance.

 

Decorate your entry for the holidays, no matter what your choice of an entrance, the most crucial aspect is that it is representative of who you and your family are. Even the busiest of homes deserve to give their best foot forward with an entrance that stands out. It is the first reflection of your home that people will see, and just like with any appearance, the first impression counts.
