Holly Jolly, Classic or Sophisticated - What's Your Holiday Style?

Posted on Nov 02, 2022 by dreeshomes

What’s your holiday decor style? Do you lean more toward a classic Christmas, or do you prefer the whimsy and magic of holly jolly vibes? Then there’s the elegance that a sophisticated decorating style brings. Whatever style makes your season bright, hosting the holidays in your Drees home is easy - and even fun! After all, our floor plans are created by architects with care, in the hopes that you and your family will soon be there.

Okay, holiday puns aside, we understand it’s essential to have the most optimal space for gathering during this season. Our signature living triangles  – an open floor plan concept in which the kitchen, family room and dining area are adjacent – make for functional everyday living and optimal entertaining opportunities. This allows the host to keep a pulse on all three areas of the home while entertaining. Plus, guests can enjoy the open space as they move about the party. 

When it comes to the holidays, this space begs to be adorned in all of the greenery, tinsel and trees, and we’re excited to show off some Drees homes that exemplify making the holidays merry and bright! 

Classic Christmas




Defined by traditional colors like red, green and gold, this decorating style pairs perfectly with organic elements like greenery, pinecones and oranges. The Corona at Viridian in Arlington, Texas is decked out with fresh greenery and a citrus-inspired tablescape - a nod at the classic story of receiving an orange in your stocking. 

The Corona’s dining area is spacious enough to house your guests and your tree, so you don’t have to choose between festive and functional. The Corona’s dining room features an extensive butler’s pantry across the hall — a perfect spot to pour drinks or serve hors d’oeuvres. For the dining area, consider incorporating place settings with pops of gold and red to complement the warm tone of the organic elements.
