hellokorin holiday: decorating small spaces

If you love decorating for the holidays, but don’t love the idea of trying to cram a 6-foot tree and mounds of garland, lights, stockings, and other decorations into your apartment, you’ve come to the right place. Getting into the Christmas spirit doesn’t mean having to squeeze past the tree to get to the bedroom or eat with your dinner in your lap because the nativity set and snow globes and stocking holders are crowding every flat surface within sight. I’ll show you how to get maximum festivity with minimal square footage in just a few easy, creative steps:

The golden rule for decorating an apartment: small space = small decorations. Opt for a miniature tree, and hang fewer, more deliberate ornaments. Not enough space for a full wreath? Hang a few fir sprigs tied with a pretty ribbon!

An easy way to save space with decorations is to hang them up on the wall! Try out a fun Christmas tree alternative, or hang ornaments from a light fixture! And instead of bulky figurines taking up valuable space, hang festive banners or wreaths on the walls.

Decorating can start to feel cramped when you add special holiday pieces to your existing decor; try swapping them out instead. Box up your everyday dishes and give them a rest, swapping them with fun holiday plates and place mats; stash your normal throw pillows away and replace them with Christmas-themed ones; and switch out the art on the walls with framed holiday pictures or lyrics to your favorite Christmas song!

I wanna see your apartment’s holiday style! Snap a pic of your digs and tag me @hellokorin_ on Instagram.
