The most important thing to remember in decorating your home is editing. (The same is true of organizing schedules and handbags). Decorating is not about acquisitions but rather about fine-tuning what we have, ruthlessly.
Anybody can make a Shabbat meal that tastes good, but not everybody can make one that looks good. For a lot of people, holiday decorating begins and ends with a pair of candlesticks and a kiddush cup.
