Holiday Decor That Will Transform Your Living Room Into A Cozy Wonderland

As soon as the clock strikes November, we start to crave all of the things that make this season so special — holiday playlists, mulled wine, festive attire, a spirit of giving, and extra time spent with friends and family. If you’re anything like us, you enter this season with good intentions of decorating your home for the holidays, just as you dress up yourself for all of the parties on your social calendar. Then, as the season flies by in the blink of an eye, your design overhaul just never quite happens.

To simplify your decor #goals, we’ve partnered with Big Lots to give you seven easy home decor tips and tricks for *sleighing* the most wonderful time of the year. We propose starting small and making the living room the focal point of your redecorating this year. Skip covering your space with tinsel or overdone garlands and lights, and make simple swaps — like exchanging your throw pillows for something with a bit of holiday sheen or adding a piece of wall art that is fit for an Aspen ski lodge. These easy ideas will leave your living room feeling so cozy that you’ll wish that the weather outside was frightful all year long.

A Festive Wreath

Shimmer Collection Snowy White Poinsettia Wreath, Big Lots

A shimmering wreath on your front door sets the tone for the winter wonderland that awaits inside. We’re sure your visitors will agree.

A Cozy Plush Throw

Arctic Trail Trading Co. Rabbit Faux Fur Throw, Big Lots

No Netflix and chill session is complete without the perfect throw. A faux-fur version is at the top of our wish list.

A Personal Touch

Chunky Knit Stocking, Pottery Barn

You're never too old for your very own stocking, and who doesn't love a monogram? These feel totally festive and the luxe knit will warm up any mantle.

A Lodge-Worthy Wall Friend

Woodland Collection Natural Reindeer Head With Twigs & Pine Needles, Big Lots

Festive reindeer wall art adds aprés-ski vibes to your living room, whether the weather outside is frightful or not.

Shimmery Throw Pillows

Shimmer Collection Snowflake Gem Throw Pillow, Big Lots

Add holiday-inspired pillows to your sofa this winter. Think: tonal pillows with subtle metallic accents, as opposed to full-out red and green options.

A Warm, Wintry Candle

Nest 'Holiday' Classic Candle, Nordstrom

The quickest way to get in the holiday spirit is to light a pine or cinnamon scented candle, and turn on some seasonal tunes. The "Holiday" scent by Nest is at the top of our list.

Out-Of-The-Box Ornaments

Winter Wonder Lane Mosaic Santa Hat Ornaments, Big Lots

While we love a tree with simple ornaments, this is the year to infuse a little extra fun into your fir. These disco-inspired Santa hats are a great start.
