Holiday Decorating Inspiration via Arcadian Lighting

Good morning, lovelies! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Even though in Canada Thanksgiving comes around waaay back in October, I've always found American Thanksgiving kind of kick-starts the holiday season for me, it's my ready-set-go to begin my holiday shopping… and decorating! So in that spirit, here's a fantastic guest post chock full of inspiration to deck your halls and yada yada. Enjoy!

Hi everyone! I'm Jessica from Arcadian Lighting, a blog and website all about the latest in interior design trends and a wide selection of lighting fixtures to go with them. The holiday season is upon us and one of the best ways to get into the spirit is by decorating your home to reflect your festive mood. But holiday decorations don't have to be identical. I've compiled eight examples of unconventional, modern interior designs for the holiday. Enjoy!
Modern Holiday
The tiger striped chairs in this dining room may not be what immediately comes to mind when you think of the holidays, but it adds an unexpected and fun twist. Garlands hung with sparkling lights on the mantle, and miniature Christmas trees at each place setting bring in traditional holiday accents.
Modern Holiday
An all white dining room is the perfect canvas for pops of sparkly, vibrant holiday decorations. The chandelier makes an even more glamorous statement when dressed up in beads and ornaments in a cool color palette.
Modern Holiday
This sparse, contemporary living room gets festive in an eclectic way. The lush wreath and garland-wrapped-antler are rustic, natural touches that contrast well with the abstract Christmas tree style decoration.
Modern Holiday
Using white as the dominate color, this living room showcases traditional red and green holiday colors, while still feeling very modern. The paper snowflakes and tree patterned wallpaper are playful touches.
Modern Holiday
Dazzling gold ornaments and table decorations make this dining room glamorous and modern. Black furniture and drum pendant lights with glitzy crystal beads are beautiful and stylish accents.
Modern Holiday
A comfy bed decked out in red and white with snowflake details is perfect for the holiday season. The thick knitted blanket and pillow are cozy touches, and the garland and red reindeer overhead are adorable, as well.
Modern Holiday
This bedroom takes its inspiration from the season's snowy landscape. DIY snowflakes are a fun addition to the wrought iron bed frame. The neutral palette is fresh and bright thanks to pale blue accents, and the chocolate brown wall sconce complements the color scheme beautifully.
Modern Holiday
A roaring fire in the fireplace, a candle-lit mantle and a twinkling Christmas tree all create an idyllic holiday scene. A big comfy chair and fluffy throw complete this warm, elegant living room.

How will you decorate for the holidays this year? Will you go minimal and chic, or glamorous and colorful? Check out Arcadian Lighting's blog for fresh decorating ideas for every season! (Images: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
