Classy Holiday Decorating Tips for Your Lexington, MA Home!

With the holiday season in full swing, you might be wondering how extravagant to get with your Lexington home’s holiday décor. If you’re selling your Lexington home this season, it’s especially important that you decorate just enough, without going overboard and taking the attention away from your home’s best features.

As your Lexington real estate agent, I’d like to share some tips for traditional, classy holiday decorating that every potential Lexington homebuyer or holiday home guest will appreciate!
  • Door wreaths. The front entryway to your Lexington home is the first place that most Lexington homebuyers and home guests look. Make sure it especially catches your eye around the holidays with a classy, eye-catching holiday wreath. Wreaths have come a long way. There are so many styles to choose from now, so have fun with it!
  • Gold and silver décor. The classiest approach to holiday décor is gold and silver decorations. Decorate a Christmas tree in all metallic gold and silver ornaments, bows, ribbons and lights. Decorate your fireplace mantel with gold or silver vases, ornaments and holiday statues. Wrap gold or silver garland around posts or stairwells. Because these colors pop all on their own, you don’ t need a lot of decorations to make a big difference.
  • Greenery. When most of the greenery found in nature disappears this time of year, the scenery can seem gloomy. Bring that greenery indoors this holiday season with green evergreen branches on your mantel, a green wreath on your door, a green Christmas tree, green garland around your front door and a winter plant as your table centerpiece. Add some pine cones, holly and poinsettias to the greenery to really make it stand out.
  • Personal ornaments. As a rule of thumb when selling your Lexington home, you should store away personal décor, such as family photos and children’s artwork. However, for the holidays, I find that personal ornaments on a Christmas tree are okay. In fact, they really give a home that extra homey feeling, which potential Lexington homebuyers will appreciate around the holidays. But if any ornaments are falling apart or are dreadfully unattractive, store them away until next year.
Hopefully these holiday decorating tips will give you good headway for your own holiday décor in your Lexington home this winter!
