Are you looking to freshen up your holiday decor? Here are some quick ways to spruce up your Christmas decor indoor ideas for 2022.
With the temps cooling down to I need a jacket level, the leaves are almost done falling, and it’s time to start thinking Christmas and get in the holiday spirit!!!!
Cause the Christmas season doesn’t have to only be a few short weeks.
We can prepare before Thanksgiving.
An easy way to enjoy the Christmas vibe for longer is to shop or make Christmas gifts earlier, get your Christmas cards ready to go, and get those creative juices flowing so the festive season isn’t such a blur.
But before we grab some red ribbon, pretty Christmas balls, and some Christmas lights, let’s chat about the best ways to spruce up your home for the holidays this year a little earlier.
That way, we’ll have more time to savor the season instead of feeling like the holidays flew by without getting to truly enjoy them.

Looking Back to Christmas Past
A great way to plan and execute this year’s indoor Christmas decor ideas, we should look back to what we did in years past.
What did you love? What did you not love? And how can you make things different this year?
It was really beautiful and kind of sad to be decorating there for the last time.
We moved just before the holidays, so while I didn’t do a whole lot of decorating here at the new house, I dedicated myself to at least one room so it felt more like Christmas.
With a new home, I’m starting to sift through what we already have before I purchase new holiday decor.
I may do some rooms with beautiful holiday neutrals and timeless winter decor. But I still love that pop of red, don’t you?
Before I get started decorating, I’m shopping my home first to see what I already have that will fit my Christmas aesthetic.
Here are some quick ways to spruce up your Christmas decor!
Sprucing Up Your Christmas Decor Indoor Ideas for 2022
We don’t have to spend tons of money to spruce up our Christmas decor every year.
Keep in mind that not every inch of your home needs to be decked out with Christmas crafts, candy canes, and Christmas trees.
Because sometimes less is more.
If you plan to shop for holiday decor, look around to find the best deals. Because you can save a lot of money, shopping for a Christmas look for less.
When shopping around too, look for things that are a bit understated so you can decorate with them a little earlier or keep them out a little longer as part of your winter decor.
And if you are not shopping for new festive holiday decorations?
There are things we can do to spice things up so our existing Christmas decor feels fresh and new. And it doesn’t mean you have to do all of them.
Even the smallest of changes can make your holiday home feel fresh and new for the upcoming season.
Here are 5 simple ways to update your Christmas decor for 2022.
Swap Out Throw Pillows
I don’t know about you, but I LOVE to change out my throw pillows. Oftentimes, I just buy new pillow covers because they are easier to store than actual pillows.
There are so many different colors, patterns, and different sizes to choose from. And they add such a Christmas vibe when it comes to seasonal home decor.
So consider changing them out to freshen up your home. And the seasons I tend to focus on are:
As I am shopping around for new throw pillows, I am totally getting THESE evergreen tree pillows for my living room. Aren’t they so cool?
They are beautiful, understated, and will look amazing beyond the holiday season.
But I also love:
- THIS festive and cozy pillow
- THIS cozy neutral winter pillow
- And I love THIS soft and cozy plaid pillow for the holidays
- But THIS cozy neutral plaid would look great from the holidays well into winter.

Change Your Area Rug
Another easy idea to spruce up your holiday home is to change your area rug.
Way back when, I probably wouldn’t suggest this as a change, but there are SO many great affordable area rugs out there that make it so easy to change it up for the season.
I really want to get THIS one.
But I don’t know, I love THIS one too.
Aren’t they so festive?
I may get an 8×10 for the library to create a festive vibe and then decorate with what I already have from there.
Which one do you like better?
Add Cozy Christmas Linens
An easy way to add a festive touch is to swap out your bedding, add some cozy chunky knit throws, and change bath and kitchen towels, or linens for the dining room, to decorate for the holidays without busting the budget.
Depending on the vibe I’m going for, even a small holiday-inspired towel or napkins for place settings can make a big impact in a small space.
Whenever I’m shopping around, I try to consider the bigger picture of how I’ll use things. Can I use it for more than just Christmas?
As much as I love festive reds, they don’t translate as well into winter, so sometimes I gravitate to greens, neutrals, or winter plaids.
Right now, I am loving THIS color for my bedroom.
It’s simple, it’s understated, and would look amazing for longer than just the holidays.
Swap out some seasonal throw pillows and a throw blanket and it’s a solid decor staple for my home.

Christmas Decor Indoor Ideas: Winter Greens and Decor
I’m a huge fan of plants and flowers, both real and faux.
They make spaces feel more alive, provide lots of character and help boost the mood.
A festive way to add indoor Christmas decorations ideas is to tuck some faux evergreen sprigs on a shelf or add a wreath to your front door and you’ve got a gorgeous winter vibe.
Add an artificial Christmas tree this year so you can decorate earlier and skip the needle drop.
Or tuck in some mini trees throughout your home to add an understated look for the holidays.
Christmas centerpieces for the dinner table are a great way to spruce up the dining area for the holidays.
I always say, a great centerpiece can decorate the whole room. So consider making one with faux greens that will last throughout the season.
There are a few sources that I love to purchase faux winter greens and flowers from.
Here are my faves that sold out SUPER QUICK last year so if you want them, I’d order them now:
- THIS garland
- THESE branches for fillers
- THIS wreath
- THESE make great fillers for small arrangements or tucking in on shelves.
- THESE are great for crocks, vases, baskets, vintage crates and toolboxes.
- THIS adds a lot of texture and dimension in arrangements.
- I don’t have THIS one but I’ve got it in my shopping cart for the new house.
- But I’m also loving THIS one.
- How gorgeous is THIS wreath?
- And THESE look great in anything!
Much like plants and florals, it’s essential to add natural materials like pine cones, ornaments, white or red berries, and other organic elements to spruce up the 2022 Christmas decor.

Scented Candles and Mood Lighting are Must-Haves
But the perfect way to add more indoor Christmas decoration ideas? Add some warm, glowing winter-scented candles and fairy lights
Do you have a favorite scented candle for the holidays?
I love anything cranberry. But the scent of pine is also lovely this year too.
Tip: Look for ones with timers or remotes – it makes it SO much easier to turn several on at one time without having to think about it.
THIS is the pre-lit garland I have in my kitchen on my window and on top of the cabinets.
You definitely want this one – I added mine to my wintergreen garlands and it looks AMAZING.
It’s a little pricey but I haven’t found anything like it anywhere else so to me, it’s worth it.
Plus, It looks so much better than plain string lights.
And THESE are the pretty lit cones too.
I couldn’t find them last year, but they are selling them again this year, so don’t wait to buy them if you want them!
