Décor Ideas you’ll want to show off this Christmas
Decorating for the holidays is a fun family tradition that often denotes the start of the season. While some of us love the familiarity of using the same decorations year after year, others like to mix it up a bit and decorate with a fresh palette every season.
Whether you prefer traditional décor or something a bit more modern, get every inch of your home into the holiday spirit with these creative ways to deck the halls:
This year’s main theme for Christmas seems to be all-out Scandinavian, with the idea of “less is more” dominating the scene. By creating a blank background, you can have a few key pieces in each room stand out, e.g. instead of adorning your tree with masses of ornaments you can go for string lights only. Add a woven basket and furry blanket for a true representation of the Scandinavian style.
Of course, going against the status quo can also make for a captivating statement. Glam it up this holiday season with glitter and gold table accents and a pop of pink for a contemporary twist to Christmas décor.
Blue, purple and gold don’t usually appear together during the holidays, but Christmas decorations don’t have to be traditional. Think outside the box and create a look that is fun and trendy.
Strapped for space? Try something new this year with a space-saving, alternative Christmas tree that can even display cards from friends and family. You’ll love the idea of having an unconventional tree with just paper and tape, and the origami Christmas decorations in black!
Trees are not the only way to accessorise your home this season. Use a black velvet chair and black and white chevron-striped rug to add a modern twist alongside seasonal classics.
Or, for a simple solution, replace your current throw and scatter cushions with more festive designs and colours.
You can also use assorted glass jars to give your front porch banister a festive glow. For an opaque, frosty look, add a mercury-glass effect by first misting the jars’ interiors with water then immediately spraying on looking-glass paint.
Don’t get your tinsel in a tangle over the festive decoration this year. Instead take inspiration from our interior experts and style the perfect dining table, accessorize a beautiful festive lounge or put the finishing touches on your couch or sofa.
