Holiday Decorating Ideas for Small Spaces

‘Tis the Holiday Season! Tempted with buying “must-have” decor for holiday decorating? When “adding all to cart” isn’t an option because of small spaces, how do you decorate in style?

You CAN “Go Big” with holiday style in your home – even with “small” spaces. I’ve partnered with Soft Surroundings to show you how to glam up your small spaces with easy (and festive) ideas.

Twinkle Lights!

Twinkle lights are LIFE. What is it about the glistening glow of holiday lights? You need them in your holiday decor – and here’s how to use ’em especially in small spaces.

  • ONLY use 1 accent color for lights (ex: white/clear LED lights). Colored, blinking lights are just “too much” for a small space to handle.
  • Use lights as a centerpiece or accent.
    • Remote controlled and battery operate lights are the ones you want.
      • Lights in a glass container or on a tray are effortless yet look modern.

Accent Color

A stylist’s tip is to use 1 Accent Color. Why? It most elegantly adds in hints of the holiday to your space.

  • Flowers (within the accent color) makes your holiday atmosphere more organic and natural.
  • Functional pieces are the way to go! They enhance the look of the season while also being useful.
  • Toss in a throw pillow. Just one pillow really pulls the accent color together.

Tree Size

Small trees (real or artificial) keeps the fa-la-la and decking the halls strong! Don’t miss out…

  • No room for even a tiny tree? Use a branch in a more substantial vase to preserve the tree idea while working within your space.
  • Keep the ornaments simple (if you decide to use them) for feng shui and balance.
  • Instead of a tree skirt, wrap the bottom of the tree in a plush blanket instead!

Cozy Decor

Small spaces = limited storage. More holiday items (that you’ll have no place to store for next year) doesn’t make sense with your budget or space. Buy items for long-term use/decor.

  • Faux fur is cozy chic while also being seasonal.
    • Pillows are so inviting on a couch during cold weather.
    • Don’t forget a faux fur blanket/throw to complete the snuggle factor!


How about hanging items to add to your holiday decorating? Use the space you have in new ways.

  • Wreaths are not just for doors. Hang on a shelf or bookcase or bar cart.
    • Small wreaths hanging on the back of chairs is modern style.
  • Windows can easily welcome a wreath or a bow or a branch.

Let it snow…and stay cozy while keeping your small spaces chic!

Thanks for stopping by… Happy holiday decorating!
