We love the holiday season and taking time to make our home feel like a sanctuary amidst the hustle and bustle of gatherings and gift giving. For us, it's important that what we purchase for our festive decor is responsibly made and can live in our homes beyond the season. Below we’re sharing some useful tips to get your home ready for the holidays with meaningful Everand® pieces that lean classic and cozy, without all the kitsch.
1. Color & texture
Pillows are always an easy way to update your decor. Tons of rust and terracotta tones mixed together with olive green will bring the spirit of the season to your home. Don’t be afraid to buy these heirloom quality decor pieces because small updates like pillows can be styled and restyled throughout your home all year long.
2. Earthy touches
We love to use greenery in our homes but opt for ones that don’t scream “Christmas”. There are so many great finds that will carry you from Thanksgiving and beyond New Years Day; like dried flowers, branches, eucalyptus and magnolia leaves. Our plant pouches are the perfect cozy container to add this festive touch.
3. Cheers to the season
Prep your rooms for all the fun and festive holiday gatherings. Cocktails sure do set the mood (and we love these merry suggestions by Tieghan Gerard of Half-Baked Harvest) so make sure to stock your home with plenty of coasters for when company arrives! The perfect happy hour companion, these coasters are handcrafted using artisan made fabrics and sewn by refugee women in Chicago - no two are alike!
When you decorate your home with goods from Everand®, you are supporting dignified income opportunities for refugee women who are rebuilding their lives in Chicago.
