9. Pine Tree Greenery in OhioNo room is off-limits to holiday decorating in photographer Julie Ranee’s Columbus, Ohio, home. She keeps to a spare, natural look that emphasizes the white pine greens that are placed all over the house. She notes that the cuttings do well in the bathroom because the humidity from the shower keeps them hydrated. Take the full tour
You can also use two freestanding pedestal sinks, either for aesthetics or to overcome any space limitations, as they can be put side by side or on separate walls. “Pedestal sinks have made a resurgence in the last 10 to 15 years,” Hopkins says. “As a result, there’s more product available to suit different needs.” If you don’t need the counter space or storage space in a vanity, two pedestals will create an airy feel that may sway your choice.
8. Give every room a small, special touch. Instead of going for the big impact, spread a little holiday cheer in every room in the house. Small touches, like an ornament hung on a mirror or a sprig snipped from your Christmas tree in a glass on the bathroom sink, will foster a warm, cozy holiday mood without much effort on your part.
In the bathroom, I placed natural pine garland above the medicine cabinets. The antique apothecary cabinet was purchased at a local auction for only $15 and fits in easily with the rustic holiday decor.Tip: The bathroom is an ideal place for seasonal greens because the high humidity keeps them nicely hydrated.
