Pennsylvanians are right at the top in planning for over-the-top, Clark Griswold, anti-Scrooge decorations this Christmas season.

According to the 2020 Holiday Home Trends Report from online interior design company Modsy, 69 percent of Pennsylvanians say they will be welcoming Santa with a fully decked-out holiday display.

That ties Pennsylvania with Washington state at third among most Christmas-cheerful states, behind Illinois at 71 percent and Texas at 70 percent, and ahead of Ohio at 67 percent.

“It makes sense many people are putting extra effort into their holiday decor this year so they can make their homes a place of joy and delight since they’ll be spending so much time there this season,” said Alessandra Wood, VP of Style at Modsy, which surveyed 2,000 people across the country to develop the trends report.

‘Cottagecore’ is 2020’s new holiday decorating trend

Along with bread-baking and closet reorganizing, another nesting trend on the home front is “cottagecore” style.

“The cottagecore aesthetic swarmed the internet this year with its revival of traditional ideals and the glorification of a simple yet charming cottage lifestyle,” says Amanda Brennan, trend expert for Tumblr.

Engagement on the social platform for cottagecore began spiking in early spring and hasn’t abated, she reports.

Now it’s flowing into the holiday season, she says, “with posts of farmhouse-inspired holiday decorations, homestyle seasonal recipes, warm winter décor, and knitting.”

Etsy.com trend expert Dayna Isom Johnson agrees: “The nostalgia-inspired movement is all about bringing back pastoral aesthetics and activities.”

Handmade and natural themes are prominent in cottagecore decoration.

Tips for decorating in a contemporary environment

Holiday decorating can be a tricky game in the desert. Warm weather, stucco, Santa, it’s not always an easy mix.

A lot of homeowners also opt for hip, modern decor. Weaving traditional warmth into cool minimalist settings can be a challenge, too. Here, a few designers give tips — with some do’s and don’ts — when it comes to holiday decorating in modern interiors.

Tip No. 1: Less is certainly more. With your share of stark whites, grays and a cool, airy space, holiday decorating will most certainly be about pops of color — and probably small ones.

“Think of bold but simple statement pieces, such as small sculpture or a nice centerpiece,” said Kimberly Joi McDonald, owner and CEO of Designing JOI LLC, a Las Vegas-based interior design firm. “I also like elegant candles. You can feel the relaxation when you come in, and there’s a variety of scents

Tips from Henrico Fire Department when you’re decorating for the holidays

Doug Reynolds, a Battalion Chief for the Henrico Fire Department, says keeping your house safe starts with a safe tree.

“Make sure that you get a nice green tree, grab those needles and pull on it, because if you end up with a big handful of needles that is not a fresh tree and it’s already starting to dry out, and it’s going to be a problem in your house,” he said.

Reynolds also says if you’re using a real Christmas tree, you want to keep any heat source 36 inches, or the length of a yardstick away.

When you grab last year’s lights, he says to make sure they don’t have any broken
