1. Winter wonderland. Embrace the icy coolness of the season with an all-white look, and keep things sparkling by adding small touches of metallics. A little spray paint can turn last year’s decorations snowy white. Is your space at a premium? Try a crafty faux tree. Outline a tree with nails and string (like the photo above) or washi tape and mount it on the wall. See our gallery of 10 decorative alternatives to Christmas trees here.

2. Sparkle and shine. Layer a pastel shade like pink with warm gold for a soft and welcoming look. Crepe paper decorations and shimmering ornaments are key pieces. This style also suits a white tree.

3. Classic lodge. Rustic and woodsy, this traditional look is inspired by winter cabins. Warm up with buffalo checks, cozy knits and cedar boughs.
