How to Style Your Home for Christmas
After quite an unpredictable year, we are finally ready for Christmas! With everything that’s been going on in 2020 and all the extra time we’ve been spending at home, it seems even more important to make the most of the festive season and ‘go to town’ making our homes feel cosy and joyful this year. Here are a few simple styling tips to help sprinkle a little Christmas cheer into your home this season…
Choose a Colour Scheme
For the ultimate in stylish Christmas decor, we recommend sticking to a general colour scheme for your home. You may choose to use traditional colours such as green and red, or you may want to go a bit bolder with blues and whites, or pinks and creams. Also, try to stick to a metallic tone (either gold, silver or bronze) and keep it consistent throughout the home.
Using foliage such as pine leaves, eucalyptus and ivy (or anything you can forage from the garden!) is a great way of keeping your Christmas decor elegant and classy. Add pine cones and sprigs of berries to complete your Wintery look.
Top tip: Spray a few sticks in gold/silver glitter to add a little festive sparkle to your foliage!
Are you lucky enough to receive Christmas cards from friends and loved ones each year? Why not display them by tying them to string and hanging them from the ceiling like bunting? They not only will look pretty and brighten up the space, but they cost, well, the price of a ball off string!
With all this extra time at home, why not get a little creative this year and get stuck into some Christmas arts and crafts? The possibilities are endless; hanging ornaments for the tree, little lanterns to hang from the ceiling or perhaps a festive Christmas wreath. Not only will you save some pennies, but you’ll create some original decor and have a lot of fun in the process!
Hopefully we’ve given you a few pointers when it comes to dressing your home for the upcoming festivities. After a difficult year, we think you’ll agree that we all deserve an extra special Christmas this year. But it doesn’t need to cost the earth. Get creative, pop on a Christmas playlist and crack out the mulled wine and mince pies. Merry Christmas everyone!
