During the Christmas season, Property Brothers star Jonathan Scott transforms his Las Vegas home into a holiday wonderland to host his entire family. "For me, Christmas is all about family," says Scott. "So when I stage the home for the holidays, I want it to feel cozy and comfortable, and basically I want to make my place the home-away-from-home for everyone who couldn't get to their house."

Scott leans toward warm tones and traditional red and green decor for Christmas. He uses garland to accent the home and decorates a large tree with a mix of stylish ornaments and childhood ornaments. According to Scott, even condo owners and renters can add touches of holiday decor in the home by creating thoughtful accents with garland, rugs and accent pieces. "And it doesn't have to be tacky, cheesy holiday," Scott says. "It can be very elegant, very formal, but just enough to give that flavor of Christmas."

Where does Scott recommend picking up holiday decor? "Surprisingly, Ikea has a phenomenal selection of every different style you can think of, and very cost effective," he says.
