Sure, you have your tried-and-true holiday decorating strategy, but a few simple tweaks can enhance the charm of those trimmings you bring out year after year. Opt into a new trend (bottlebrush trees are having a definite moment) or find an original way to deck the halls with that pine garland. Either way, our favorite #SoDomino holiday homes are guaranteed to help you get into the spirit. When your Christmas decorations are just as elevated as the rest of your space, you can’t help but be extra merry.

Why not trade in your evergreen for something straight out of Candyland? The pink tree (and matching wreath) look right at home with all the other bright hues in this living room. Keep the ornaments simple to let the branches shine.

A big cluster of bottlebrush trees in all the colors of the rainbow feels simultaneously retro and on trend. (Psst: You can stock up on them at Target this year.)

Go all in on one hue and even the most-overlooked nooks will stand out. A mix of metallic gold and bright yellow tissue paper ornaments give this niche next to a stairwell real pizzazz. Consider this a compelling reason to buy that disco ball you’ve been wanting.

Dress up your pine branches with fragrant eucalyptus—all you have to do is toss on some fairy lights and cluster a few taper candles below for a magical display.

No need to overcomplicate your banister. A super-simple garland of candied orange slices brightens up swoops of classic greenery.

Fireplaces are pretty much made for holiday decor, so go all out. Don’t just cover the top ledge with branches—drape some colorful garland across the front, too.

If you want to try something different with your evergreen boughs, skip the lights and weave some flowers in between them instead. DIY route proving too challenging? Order a long centerpiece from your local florist.

This lush pine garland proves that sometimes it’s good to be a little off-center. If you want something you can use year in and year out, artificial greens work just as well as real ones for this look. (A collection of sleek gold candlesticks doesn’t hurt either.)

What better complement to a “snowy” flocked tree than an assortment of white and gold baubles? The crowning glory isn’t a star on top, but rather the ingenious base: a galvanized washtub.

Give a gift to Mother Nature this year and craft this bold decoration out of old tissue boxes.

A mini tree, a strategically placed branch, and a tchotchke or two are all you need to make a welcoming spot for holiday guests.
