Christmas in July is about to reach its final stretch. It’s hard to let go of memories of a great vacation. But why say goodbye to this spectacular holiday? Even after summer, you and your family can capture the warmth of the season with an ethereal beach house look that retains a hint of the holidays. Join Tree Classics as we give you three great tips on how to spruce up your quaint holiday home and cherish memories of Christmas in July.
Tip #1: Decorate a Christmas Tree with Summer Holiday Photos
Summer is no different from the traditional yuletide season when families come together. And what better way to give your summer holiday home that heartwarming feel than by accenting your beloved tree with precious photographs from your family vacation? Our pick for a great Christmas tree in a summer-y home has photos mixed in with traditional yuletide ornaments.
Tip #2: Adorn Your Holiday Home with Nature-inspired Decor
Apart from bringing in a sense of nostalgia with their tree, the homeowners of this contemporary family room keep the atmosphere light by decorating the space with treasures from the surf, sand, and sea. You can use starfish or sea shells and pile them at the center of your dining table. These jagged conch shells, for instance, are set in contrast to the shiny baubles hanging from the beams, creating an unexpectedly eclectic look.
If you want a more relaxed atmosphere, go for subdued tones that remind you of warm sand, then inject color into your space with a few holiday decorations that never go out of fashion. This home highlights a quirky Christmas vibe with the palm and eucalyptus leaves decorative accents that keep the holiday fun going. But it also surprises you with a sea horse light fixture atop the staircase for an exuberant beach house look!
Tip #3: Enjoy the Outdoors with a Summer Holiday Tablescape
Unlike other festive occasions, Christmas in July can take on a more relaxed and relaxing appeal. This tablescape from The Happy Home Blog says it all: you can blend the quaint charm of summer with quirky Christmas ornaments. And with a clean and simple silvery white color scheme, the setup in this home in Australia captures the effervescence of summer with a balance of sparkle – from the holiday decorations – and the invigorating look of fresh summer flowers.
So who says you have to say goodbye to Christmas in July? With these three simple decorating tips, you can continue to enjoy the ethereal charm of your summer holiday home.
