Knit motifs, like those on these Fair Isle ornaments from Land of Nod, evoke the holiday season's sentiments of warmth and comfort.

Following the general trend in home decor, holiday trim and accessories this year are an eclectic mix of traditional and non-traditional colors and styles.

Remember when blue or pastel pink ornaments were the height of kitsch? Now they're mainstream, elegant options. And while red and green are popular hues, they are not married to each other. Red might be paired with ivory, or amethyst; green may partner with copper, caramel or bright white.

As for what goes on the tree or the mantel, well, that's the thing — anything goes.
