Hanukkah is nearly here, but is your home decorated accordingly? As a friendly reminder, this year’s festival of lights begins Sunday, November 28, and runs through Monday, December 6. That said, you ought to get moving if you plan on transforming your space into a joyful oasis for the holiday.
Thankfully, it doesn’t take much to amp up your home’s festive factor. Of course, literal Hanukkah decorations like banners and unique menorahs are a welcome addition, but another easy idea is to incorporate pops of blue wherever possible. Say, for example, by swapping out your neutral-colored rug for a Hanukkah rug containing shades of blue and white.
For inspiration, we’ve rounded up six blue rugs to include with the rest of your Hanukkah decoration ideas, from doormats for your front porch to area rugs for your bedroom. Keep scrolling to check them out.
