Painting and Decorating Tips for the Holidays

With the holiday season in full swing, it’s time to update your interior décor to match the festivities. A new paint job to update your interior look seems like a huge leap, but it can be easy to complete and easy to revert to your original look in the spring if you keep things simple. A few new touches of paint to your interior spaces will welcome guests and spread holiday cheer. Go above and beyond the normal holiday touches like wreaths and Christmas trees (fun and not bad at all to include in your holiday décor) this year with splashes of color.

Use these tips to spruce up your home this holiday season:

Focus on the Trim

Add color to any interior space by starting with the trim, the border areas. Painting the moldings and runners around your living room or entry way will instantly give holiday guests a welcome feeling. Complement your current interior colors with festive tones.

You can match darker colors with light and vice-versa, or play with your interior lighting to create a warm feeling, themed for the holidays. Semi-gloss or gloss paint works best because they add attractive sparkle when they complement the colors on your walls.
