It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, which means it is time to pull those Christmas decorations out of the attic and give your home a little holiday sparkle. And I would like to encourage you to go all out this year. With this particularly challenging holiday season approaching, we need all the Christmas cheer we can get! This season, let your Christmas spirit shine from the inside out by decorating your windows!

Check out these beautiful holiday window treatments to get your creativity flowing.

Kitchen Windows

Don’t make the mistake of neglecting your kitchen when doing your decorating. With all the time that you will be spending cooking holiday meals and serving your guests, your kitchen needs a little Christmas spirit.

This whimsical garland accented with eucalyptus and twinkle lights by Nesting with Grace looks stunning over roman shades. Check out her blog to see how she achieved this look.

Perhaps your style is a little more understated. In that case, maybe try a dainty candle wreath under raised woven shades for a subtle and elegant holiday accent. Bonus points if you make the wreath yourself with this simple DIY.

Living Room Windows

Your living room is likely the room that houses the crown jewel of your holiday decor—the Christmas tree. When decorating for the holidays, choose window treatments that pair well with your tree and accent its beauty.

Here is another example of woven shades paired with a wreath, but this time layered with sheer white curtains. This look pairs beautifully with a bright and rustic farmhouse aesthetic with neutral tree decor.

Want your tree to speak for itself? Place it right in front of a street-facing window and add some woven wood shades that you can keep pulled up to show off your tree in all its radiance! These shades look great with a wood-accented mid century modern design.

I think we all need a little “merry and bright” in our lives. So what are you waiting for? Open the windows, gather your family, put on a Christmas playlist (preferably one including Mariah Carey’s iconic Christmas anthem) and deck the halls! And the windows!
