It’s all about attention to details when it comes to the holidays, especially when wrapping gifts for family and friends. Traditional wrapping paper is never a disappointment, but why not take it up a notch and really impress everyone on your list?

Neutral Gift WrapNeutral Gift Wrap by WhipperBerry

If you like the clean lines of neutral gift wrap, use wax paper to make a bow instead of colorful paper. The bow resembles a snowball, and you can finish it off with ribbon for a look that will stand out under the tree. For a rustic approach, use basic brown wrapping paper, and glue a cotton yarn pom pom to a small stick. Attach the sticks to your gift with twine.

If you’d prefer bold color, wrap multiple strands of colorful yarn around brown wrapping paper.

I’m not usually in the Christmas spirit until after Thanksgiving (I can only handle one holiday at a time), but here’s some holiday inspiration for those who spend this week getting a jump start on Christmas decorating.

Handmade Acorn Ornament

To get the look, paint a Styrofoam ball brown, and hot glue acorn caps to it. Apply glue to the caps and roll in glitter. Finish it by adding ribbon or twine for hanging.

You guessed correctly if you chose option A. Kitchen Cousins hosts Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri placed the kitchen island in between two rooms to allow the host to entertain guests while preparing food.

Last week, a few of the HGTV.com editors had the privilege of visiting High Point Furniture Market. We saw a lot of fabulous designs, from innovative furniture to one-of-a-kind lighting. I was on the lookout for the hottest colors in interior design. Here are my top four color picks:

Blue

Many designers have transitioned from the bold blues you’re used to seeing to a fresher, ice blue. I still enjoyed seeing unexpected pops of the bright blues in China cabinets and drawers.

Trending Color: BlueMedia Cabinet by Design Legacy; China Cabinet by Steven Shell; Denim Map by Splurge/Robert Nicholas; Tufted Chair by HGTV HOME

Designer Shane Inman’s Decorating Tip: Use soft blues for your walls and darker shades of blue in your upholstery. For something unexpected and daring, use a smokey-slate blue on base moldings and window casings.

Orange

I never thought I could decorate with orange, but seeing this color in accessories, upholstery and seating immediately changed my mind. It completely changes the mood of a room.

Trending Color: OrangeChevron Wall Art by Vanguard Furniture; Dining Chairs by Design Legacy; Teal/Orange Pillows by TOURMALINE home; End Table by Trade Winds Furniture

Designer Erica Islas’ Decorating Tip: If you’re worried about a color overpowering a space, use it as an accent color mixed with neutrals. For example, pair a striped orange-and-white ottoman with a neutral sofa.
