Use paddles to decorate

One of the best ways to incorporate an outdoor adventure theme into the interior design of your lake house is to decorate it with items like snowshoes or kayak paddles. The kayak paddles produce a nautical, rustic look that isn’t excessive.

Christmas Decor Ideas for Every Room

Apartment living at The Lodges at Lake Salish offers a great opportunity to creatively incorporate apartment-friendly Christmas decor in your rooms and fill your apartment with the Christmas spirit.

Designing With a Festive Eye

When incorporating Christmas apartment trends into your living space, it’s essential to incorporate temporary adjustments. Make your apartment feel Christmassy by dressing your windows with fresh greenery or faux. Twinkly lights are among the Christmas apartment staples you can add to the greenery. You can obtain all the decorative elements from a local shopping center.

Share the Christmas love by hanging a mistletoe on your door frame. Although some guests may prefer a hug or air kiss, hanging a mistletoe, even just for show, can help spice up your living room’s ambiance. The plant has been used since the 18th century to signify love and good health.

The Perfect Setup for Your Aesthetic & Vibe

Decorating the Christmas tree branches makes it look appealing, but what about the areas in your house? You can hang ornaments anywhere in your house, starting with the doorways, lighting fixtures, and the key rack. Use pretty ribbons to tie up the ornaments instead of metal hooks. To make your bedroom look more festive, hang a wreath on your mirror. Use a ribbon to slip it over the top frame, and a trio of wreaths would look festive if you’re using a full mirror.

Creative Christmas preparation ideas

We must evoke the season’s spirit in our apartments to fully enjoy Christmas. We can achieve this by tweaking apartment trends and apartment-friendly decor ideas. Additionally, we should include our kids in the fun to help add excitement to their Christmas celebrations.
