The choice of style. Photo Ideas
Inspiration is the first thing that you should visit before you start decorating the apartment. Next, take action - choose a decoration style. There are many options for the New Year decoration of the apartment rooms, but we will focus on the most fashionable.
This decoration method is best repeated in any one room, and in all others to withstand neutral classics. Modern furniture does not fit with the chosen direction, so hide the most fashionable items with textiles, for example, silk wraps with embroidery, velor material, bedspreads with patterns. Continue the further transformation of an ordinary apartment into a merchant's hut by introducing a characteristic decor - a Russian stove. You can order her image on a poster, or make it yourself from a regular rectangular table. Give it the look of a stove by gluing cardboard on all sides, on which natural stone is painted. Create a “firebox” at the bottom in it, depict a “fire” and be sure to find some logs for naturalness.
This style is a collective concept and there are many variations. Scandinavian looks the New Year. To recreate it, stock up on different images of deer. They will be empty on pillowcases, pictures in frames, towels and even on napkins. Do not do without a natural Christmas tree. It is decorated in Scandinavian countries without pretentiousness, simply. Choose a white and red gamut for serving the festive table. Use a garland not for windows, but for creating a New Year's inscription on the wall.
Feng shui style
According to this science, garlands, tinsel and toys can be placed anywhere the owners, without observing any attachment to the cardinal points. Christmas tree is allowed in any form: natural, artificial, in the form of a picture, crafts. The best place for her is the center of the room, if this is not possible, then choose the west or northeast direction.
Classic decor ideas for the living room

- in a spiral, creating turns with balls of contrasting color and different sizes and a garland;
- pyramidally, when the top is decorated with small toys, then the middle ones follow, and the largest are below;
- horizontally or vertically, setting the direction by the characteristic hanging of garlands or tinsel.
Other decorative attributes of the holiday will not be commonplace: electric garlands, wreaths, candles, especially if they are presented in a new design.
DIY bedroom decoration
Do not clutter up the relaxation room with an abundance of decor. Better just make a few spectacular accents. For example, build a huge ball from ordinary plastic cups, fastening them together with a stapler. Lay a garland inside and hang this man-made miracle over the ceiling or put it on a chest of drawers. The windowsill can be decorated with ikebana from pine twigs decorated with homemade candles, based on which are peel from the New Year’s fruits - mandarin!

From below, make a zone for gifts: wrap the square blocks of the designer with beautiful paper and decorate with ribbons.
The place for an electric garland in the nursery is under the very ceiling.
A little lower, you can make a stretch of paper elements:
- volume balls;
- multi-colored birds;

Place the smallest one at the top and the largest at the bottom. Decorate with transparent vases with Christmas toys, candles with candlesticks made from cinnamon sticks, baskets with cones and holly twigs.
