Christmas is just around the corner, have you decorated your home yet? Before you into the next bin of holiday décor, try to come up with a cohesive theme for your home, because having a theme is the decorating secret of luxurious homes. Are you fond of white and silver? Try creating a winter wonderland. Kids at home? Come up with a Santa’s workshop theme.

But don’t fret if you’re on a budget; there are lots of mid-range, mall-based stores that have a wide variety of holiday decorations to choose from. Here are some themes you might want to try out:
