And yes, along with the emotion, thousands of new ideas begin to inspire us to radically transform the image of our Mid-Century Modern living room and the most notable spaces of our home. Who has an LC3 Sofa, for example, wouldn’t want to make it look in all its splendor with the most beautiful and admirable Christmas theme? In this post from Manhattan Home Design Reviews, we want to give you some fresh ideas to make your modern sofa the star of your holiday decor.
If you want to prepare yourself to get the best Christmas look for your design, the best thing you can do is take into account certain small great tips that will help you achieve the magical atmosphere that you like so much. Santa will be proud. The most characteristic feature of the holiday decoration and its designs are the straight lines and geometric shapes, warm metallic tones, and earthy accents which reflect the joy of the season. However, as a lover of the Mid-Century Modern style, you have the interesting task of correctly combining the wonders of the trend with the iconography, colors, ornaments, and most characteristic arrangements of this era.
Setting The Christmas Up!
Are you excited but don’t know where to start? Below, you will find a list of the most important aspects that you should always keep in mind when starting to define the Christmas design of your spaces and the ways in which you can let your creativity fly:
* .- Red, green, blue, white, orange: the colors of magic. The key to decorating your LC3 Sofa by Le Corbusier with a holiday theme is in the throw pillows you choose. They can be pillows that match the right colors and have patterns or designs directly related to the theme. Traditionally, these are the colors that represent Christmas anywhere in the western world. However, when it comes to Mid-Century Modern Christmas decor, the mission is to find the most successful balance between the most typical Christmas decor and those nuances of the trend. Thus, in addition to those already mentioned, you can add hues of turquoise, brown, and yellow to set the tone. Also, shimmering gold and bright silver hide the secret spells if you use them in those spots where the lighting is especially favorable. Wonderful.
* .- Give your living room a protagonist. We all have a Christmas character for which we feel special affection: Santa, the elves, the red-nosed reindeer Rudolph, Mrs. Claus, or some iconic figure of the time, such as polar bears, angels, or the classic snowmen. Designating a star protagonist for your living room to focus your theme is not a negligible idea. Some choose to place Christmas stuffed animal figurines on their sofa and in a few other visible spots. Can you imagine many little glistening snowmen on the surface of your sideboard? Fascinating.
* .- The light: determining factor. No matter how hard you try to highlight the corners that are best achieved in terms of ornaments and accessories. If you don’t use the lights strategically, your decoration will lose much more brightness and charm than you imagine. Moreover, excessive lighting, poor, or used in the least recommended places, can almost completely ruin what you initially thought. One thing you can do is try different ways to fix the set of lights that you will use only until you’ve finished with the placement of the ornaments. Then, you’ll discover what best highlights the most beautiful side of your design.
As you can see, this is just a mouthful of everything you can do to start enhancing your home’s Christmas layout. And there is no Mid-Century Modern Christmas complete without the respective and correct decoration, for your LC3 Sofa and the entire layout. Take care of the details, apply your best Christmas spirit, and give a very special gift to your family and friends: a decoration they will never forget!
