Christmas is well and truly on its way and, before you know it, it’ll be time to put up the tree and decorations. It’s such a wonderful time of year with family gatherings, Christmas parties and the chance to not feel guilty about overindulging in all of your favourite Christmas treats. If you want to up your decorating game, or need some inspiration to get into the festive spirit this season, check out our top tips below on styling the perfect home for Christmas.
Update your colour scheme
You can’t celebrate Christmas without embracing the wonderful cosy colours that come with it. Shades of red, green and gold are traditional and can be incorporated into your interior design in many great ways. Why not update your living area to a stunning shade of red to create a cosy feel, or transform your bedroom into a winter wonderland with a white and blue themed bedspread? You can even bring colours of Christmas in subtly, via cushions or chairs covers.
Get clever with lighting
The correct lighting can transform a living room and bedroom into a Christmas haven. Christmas is all about twinkling, bright, lights which help make any house feel like a home. However, if you really want to take it to the next level, you’ll need to add more than just subtle fairy lights around the Christmas tree. Think outside the box and wrap lights across the mantelpiece, and around shelves and stair bannisters. Focus your lighting attention on the complete house, not just one room. It will transform your home into a magical place.
Accessorise with all things Christmassy
Think scented candles with essences of mulled wine, cinnamon and winter spices. Pop candles throughout the house and embrace the amazing Christmas smell that will greet you all day long. When it comes to decorating your tree, pick a theme of two or three colours and, if you’ve got children, help them make some baubles to hang on too.
Follow these tips and you will create a perfect home for Christmas this winter.
