2. Try to limit your holiday color palette.  Having a wide array of colors can become distracting and does not provide cohesion to your space.  Limiting your holiday color palette three to four colors is best and try to choose colors that works well with your existing décor.  Silver, blue and white; red gold and brown, or green, gold and silver are all pleasing color combinations.

3. Allow all of your senses to experience the holidays.  Baking fresh cookies makes your home feel warm and cozy.  Scented candles and potpourri in your communal spaces provides a very inviting feel.
