4 Design Tips for a Stylish New Year’s Eve

Guest post by IDS Platinum Partner, Home Decorator's Collection




Get ready to welcome 2016 with simple touches and upgrades that will last long after the bottles have been popped and the guests have gone. Our Home Decorators Collection stylists have four tips for entertaining this New Years Eve that you can enjoy all year long!

1) Shine bright
Gleaming accents like these terrarium stands and stars add a festive touch to an entryway (this alter-style table is a favorite) or mantle. Freshen up your typical décor by adding touches of gold. A decorative mirror is a perfect place to start. We also love the subtle sheen of the Hayley Curtain.   
 
2) Raise the bar
A bar cart makes it easy to mix and mingle. For an intimate gathering use it to serve wine and cocktails. If you’re hosting a larger affair, set it up as satellite bar to cut down on crowded drink lines.

With its British steamer trunk style, the Easton Bar Cabinet adds a touch of vintage sophistication. And when the champagne is gone and the confetti has been cleaned up, this cabinet is right at home in a study or den.

3) Propose a toast
From Mad Men worthy martini glasses to handcrafted copper mugs, a cocktail just tastes better when it’s served in a nice glass. Gorgeous wine and whiskey decanters add sophistication to your bar on NYE, but also make your after work glass of wine feel like a luxury. Find more barware and entertaining accessories here.

4) Set the mood
Ambient lighting casts a beautiful glow on your party. But don’t just settle for dimmer switches; look for lamps that are a thing of beauty, too! This mercury glass lamp, Moravian star pendant and whimsical birdcage floor lamp fit the bill.

Soften the look and sound of a room with a plush rug. Whether your crowd prefers to kick off their shoes and dance or gather around the coffee table for a conversation, a rug offers a soft spot for feet to land.  Try a shag rug for the ultimate in coziness with a touch of glam. If you’re concerned about stains, opt for an indoor/outdoor rug like the Cleo or the Calista.
