It’s that magical time of year and I am thrilled to see Raleigh getting all decked out with lights, festive vibes, and pure joy! Whether you reside in a ranch-style property or a multistory home, decorating for the holidays is a joyous tradition. Get ready to spread the holiday spirit with these illuminating decorating tips.
For ranch-style homes, simplicity and charm take center stage. Illuminate your exterior with classic string lights–drape them along the roofline, wrap them around pillars, and line the pathway. Embrace Raleigh’s love for lights with hues inspired by the city’s lush greenery and vibrant reds.
Multilevel Magic: Guiding Lights from Top to Bottom
Multilevel homes offer a canvas for creativity. Start with a show-stopping centerpiece–like a towering Christmas tree that is visible from every floor. Unify the home by selecting a cohesive color scheme for your exterior lighs. Remember, sometimes less is more–there is no need to overdo it with too many colors or lawn ornaments. Stick to highlighting your favorite home features.
Embrace Greenery in the City of Oaks
Add a touch of Raleigh’s earthy spirit to your exterior decor. Craft a wreath with local greenery like pinecones, magnolia leaves, and cotton. I love to see evergreen strands coiled around front porches and embellished with lights or ornaments. Plus, the smell of a fresh pine needle adds festive flavor to any home!
