If you want a real holiday feeling, then you need evergreen wreaths. You can find them in stores during the holidays, and you can make them yourself. You can put evergreen wreaths and greenery in different places, above the sink, on kitchen cabinets. 

If you are looking for some ideas for kitchen wall decor, evergreen wreaths are also ideal for that. However, it will look best if you hang them on the kitchen window. That way, they will decorate the house inside and out.
