Which Wreath is Right for Your Living Room?

If You Need a Little Inspiration Check out These 10 Holiday Wreaths

Choosing a wreath can be a surprisingly difficult task. With all of the options out there it can be a little overwhelming. Should you go with traditional, modern, full, sparse, natural, fake - the list goes on!

Before making a decision consider where you're going to put it. Over the mantel? Hanging in the window? Measure, think about what will be around it, and think about the rest of your decor. Your wreath should make a statement while complimenting the surrounding room and everything else...MORE in it.

When used over mantles (the most common spot in a living room) wreaths become focal points and the center pieces of the holiday decor. So don't discount the importance of choosing the right one. Give it some thought and look at a few different options before making a final decision.

If you're having some trouble consider the following 10 options. Some are traditional, some less so, but ultimately they can all work in the holiday season in a variety of different rooms and settings.
