The holidays are officially upon us, and no matter how satisfying the end result is, the idea of lugging boxes out from storage to set out loads of tiny holiday decorations is enough to make the jolliest elf groan.
Luckily, creating a warm and cozy holiday vibe can go beyond setting up trees and tabletop trinkets that, while beautiful, take up valuable office space and hundreds of twinkly lights that, while twinkly, tend to tangle and test your patience. This year, look into upgrading your holiday decorating by taking advantage of empty wall space that’s begging to get onto Santa’s nice list.
Deck the Halls (and the Walls)
With the spirit of gathering in the air, many tend to focus their holiday decorating efforts on the focal points of their space: for a hotel – the lobby, for an office – the waiting room, for a home – the living room. This year, transform your space into a true beacon of holiday cheer by sprucing up oft-overlooked spaces like hallways, bathrooms, and guest rooms.
These areas are often left barren because of logistics; there just isn’t much space to set-up the traditional holiday decorations we typically think of, like small Christmas trees, tabletop trinkets like nativity scenes, or garland. However, every room has wall space – and taking advantage of a few blank walls can really make a difference in the overall feel of your space.
Consider investing in a beautiful framed picture of a winter scene to hang in a barren hallway, or stick-n-peel art to smooth over large glass offices.

Ho-Ho-Holiday Color Palettes
You don’t want to lose your company’s identity or sense of professionality in a swamp of tabletop ornaments and mismatched decorations. It may be worthwhile to identify one common theme before purchasing any additional holiday decor to ensure a sense of cohesiveness and intentionality; one of the best ways to do this is through the colors expressed in your wall art. The good news is there are a variety of holiday color palettes to explore no matter what your style is. We’ve curated a few of our favorites below:
The holidays mean different things for everyone, so one major key to effective holiday decorating is ensuring the environment you’re creating is one that every potential customer, employee, or passerby can appreciate. Consider skipping the giant portrait of Santa Claus for an oil painting of poinsettia or a serene snowscape. Additionally, the holiday season goes beyond December 25, so there’s even more of an incentive to invest in pieces that have a bit of a timeless factor – and can buy you some time if you’re not wanting to break the bubble wrap and storage boxes back out on December 26.
At the end of the day, any holiday decorations are better than no holiday decorations. But if you’re looking to explore what festive wall art can look like for your business, give us a call to discuss what options could be available for your space!
