With probably the widest assortment of décor in town, SM Home shares with us some holiday ideas inspired by Christmas traditions from around the world.

An American Classic 

The United States has many different traditions and ways that people celebrate Christmas because of its multi-cultural nature. A typical celebration of Christmas Day in America mixes Irish, Austrian, Italian, Polish, and Belgian traditions into something that is its own.

The iconic holiday pair: Santa and the Snowman.
What we can call an all-American classic captures the homey warmth of the holidays -with rich reds and wintry whites that never go out of style. A touch of silver adds sophistication, while green suggests fresh pine.

Joyeux Noel

In France, Christmas is called Noel, which comes from the phrase les bonnes nouvelles, or “the good news.” Yule logs made out of Cherry Wood are often burned in French homes, and is sprinkled with red wine to give it an exquisite aroma when it is burning. This comes from an ancient tradition in which farmers would use part of the log to ensure good luck for next year’s harvest.

Northern Lights Christmas

One of the highlights of a visit to Lapland is an early evening adventure in search for the Northern Lights.

Capture the magic of the North Lights with blue and purple, or with silver and green to light up your home this Christmas.

Sometimes they develop a riot of colors, green interspersed with waves of red, blue, and violet dancing across the sky. The magic of this natural phenomenon with colors dancing in the skies has to be seen to be believed.

blue and green Christmas balls
Be-Jeweled and bright textured balls are inspired by the Northern Lights spectacle. 
Just as the Northern Lights dazzle the holiday skies, light up your Christmas tree with an aurora borealis-like glow and add a wave of aqua for that wintry feel.

Tropical Holiday

Not all Christmases are white, and if you live the tropics, all is merry, sunny, and bright.
