Make Your Home Oh So Welcoming For the Holidays With THIS Popular Pinterest Trend

Jump on this holiday decor trend ASAP!


With Thanksgiving approaching, it's officially the holiday season...and we couldn't be more excited! Not only are we gearing up for holiday parties and spending some quality time with loved ones, but we're also starting to do some serious Pinterest research to check out how we should decorate our homes. Now, to be clear, we aren't talking a giant inflatable Santa or red and green everything—in fact, some of our favorite trends are subtle enough that they blend in with the rest of your decorating scheme (or at least don't scream "I am seasonal decor!").

One of our favorite of such trends has seen a +2,869% (!) jump in popularity on Pinterest in the past year—layered door mats! It's easy to execute and certainly affordable, and there are so many fun options to mix and match. You could even keep this trend going all year round and just switch up what mats you use depending on the season (or your mood). It's an inexpensive way to update your entryway, and you can get on this Pinterest trend whether you live in an apartment with a stoop (or even just an inside landing) or a home with a large porch.

Want to snag a few and try this out yourself? Well great news, we found a ton of door mats that can be easily incorporated into all kinds of decor schemes. Even better? You can buy them all now in anticipation of the holidays!

The perfect thing about jute is that it pretty much goes with everything, so this is a great base mat to play around with if you want to add in some more colorful mats. Or, similar to the image, you can get a couple of the same color palette and different sizes.

If you live in an apartment building where your entryway isn't actually outside, you can experiment with smaller rugs that aren't necessarily for outside to make your doorway a little more interesting than your neighbors.
