As we draw closer in on the holidays, you may want to consider giving your fireplace a facelift.

Whether you are hosting family, friends, or both this Thanksgiving, you can achieve a beautiful rustic design that bodes simplistic style. Believe it or not the Christmas Tree Lots are up and running around town. Take advantage of the woodsy scent of pine by purchasing branches or garlands that you can lay on your table as a runner. Mix in gold or silver candlesticks of different heights for a lovely holiday glow.
Mix & Match: Mix in chairs of different styles to accommodate all your guests around the table, and do not be afraid to mix the china too! Shop at your local thrift or antique shops for the best deals on plates and flatware.
This vintage look is not complete with without the turkey and all the fixings! Offer your guests a Charcuterie Board or a Cheese Board, but do not overdo it on the hors d’oeuvres. You want to be able to make it to the first course! Since we all love pie after a turkey dinner but may be too stuffed to indulge on a sweet treat, make homemade Hand Pies to-go! Your guests leave full and happy with a sweet treat to enjoy later. This Rustic Thanksgiving is tasteful, yet easy to accomplish. Who wouldn’t be thankful for such simple and carefree Holiday decor?

As we offer you suggestions this Holiday Season to get your home ready for your guests, consider these DIY options that will give your home an instant makeover! From tile to paint to textiles, there are simple things that you can do yourself or have complete before the Holidays.

Porcelain Tile vs. Marble Tile: We offer a variety of Marble Tiles in various formats to choose from, and if you love Calacatta Gold Marble as much as we do, you are going to love our Porcelain Calacatta version! The upkeep of our Porcelain Tile is minimal, and we just love how it looks on the bathroom floors and up the walls! Ask us how to get this look at an amazing price!
2. Paint Interior Doors Black: This Gloss Black Paint finish is a fabulous and inexpensive way to add a touch of sophistication to your home. You will not have to worry about replacing cheap manufactured doors if you simply paint them a gloss black. Not only are they easy to wipe down with a damp cloth, they do not show dirty fingerprints.
3. Fake Expensive Curtains: Whether you purchase your curtains at IKEA or Potterybarn, no one will notice the difference if they are hung properly. Use this example as a guide on how to DIY. If your window casing is 6″, use a beefier rod that is 3″, and then double the casement size to determine the height. In this example, the casing is 6″, so double that and hang your curtain rod 12″ above the window casing. Voila, you not only have an expensive look, you have visually raised your ceiling!
While getting ready for all your holiday guests this season, consider sprucing up a few areas of your home to celebrate in style! Holiday decorations cannot cover or hide all your home’s imperfections, so show off certain areas such as a bar or wine cellar where you can entertain your guests.
Whether your style is rustic or contemporary, take cue from these two wine tasting room designs. This striated Marble Counter mixed with glass panels that showcase your wine collection is perfect for that transitional home where traditional meets contemporary design. Complimented with a crystal chandelier, this wine tasting room is nothing short of dazzling.
Cozy up by the fireplace, but first treat your guests to your secret vino collection that you have been coveting behind these steel and glass doors. Floating shelves over these trunk inspired wine cabinets creates dimension and warmth. This contemporary yet rustic design makes for one celebratory Country Christmas! Ask us how you can achieve similar looks with our Marble & Reclaimed or Porcelain Wood Collections that you can incorporate into your own wine tasting room!
