The holiday season is a happy, festive time for everyone, but may lead to frustration in the decor department. Stores are filled with Christmas-themed decorations and linens, but what do you do if you're Jewish? Are there any throw pillows for Hanukkah? As it happens, there are plenty, and we can help you decorate stylishly for the holiday.
Colors for Hanukkah
If you have ever celebrated Hanukkah before, you probably already know the classic and thematic colors of blue and white are typically associated with the holiday. But do you know where the colors come from? Blue and white are, of course, the colors of the Israeli flag. White symbolizes purity and cleanliness, part of the Sabbath, while blue is the color of heaven and divine revelation.
Hanukkah, the commemoration of the Jewish victory against Antiochus IV and the rededication of the temple in the 2nd century BC, deserves attractive decor to complement the home in observance of the holiday. Designers on HGTV have offered unique, non-traditional ways to use the two traditional colors of Hanukkah, including using multiple shades of blue ribbon to hang white paper lanterns or decorating a white holiday tree with blue ornaments.
Many decorators also like to incorporate metallics, including an attractive yellow-gold for placeholders and flatware. Patterns in decor are also an excellent way to change up traditional Hanukkah colors, adding an intriguing graphic impact while retaining a sophisticated appearance.
Throw Pillows for Hanukkah
Hanukkah decor doesn't have to stop in the dining area. Extend the classic colors of blue and white to your furniture by using fabulous graphic throw pillows, such as the Chevron Bold Blue by Pillow Decor. Decorative items like this are bold enough to make a statement. Not every element of design in your home must scream â€œHanukkahâ€ to contribute to a beautiful theme, which is why throw pillows are an excellent option in keeping with the simple -but not simplistic -colors of the holiday.
