ORANGE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- Halloween is over and the candy is starting to dwindle but as stores put their excess Halloween gear on clearance, they also start to fill their aisles with holiday spirit.

Area rugs - Easily one of the best ways to provide a room with a dramatic change
- Use rugs to define an area or a room. Finding the perfect holiday rug will work as the basis of your holiday color scheme; it will help to tie the entire room together, from floor to ceiling.
- Depending on your personal sense of style, you can use a rug to visually mute a room or to turn up the volume.
Pillows - The perfect way to add decorative touches of personal style and holiday flair
- Pillows are the perfect way to provide both style and cozy comfort to your home. Budget Blinds has a huge selection of pillows to suit every holiday decorating need.
- Be creative! Try using fun shapes like candy canes or cornucopias; you could also try decorative pillows that spell out some favorite holiday words like "noel."
Custom draperies - A fantastic holiday solution for framing the perfect view
- There are many reasons to trade out your normal window coverings during the holiday season. For one, you could replace them with more insulated drapes that help to keep more heat in your home. You can also use holiday accent colors to frame your outside view and really show off the beauty of your surroundings.
- Customize your drapes with ornate hardware or unique tie backs. A fun idea could be to hang some extra tree ornaments in different places along swag drapery panels!
Bedding - Have a guest room? Don't forget to customize the bedding for the holidays
- If you play host for the holiday activities, chances are you will have some friends or family staying overnight. A great solution for stylishly converting your guest room during the holiday season is to furnish your guest bed with festive pillows and duvet covers!
