Christmas Home Decorations & Ideas
1. Mix and Match Tree Decorations
Looking to switch up traditional festive style? Dress your tree with a blend of simple accessories and quirky Christmas home decorations to add personality. Start by adorning your tree with a Box Of Baubles, featuring frosted whites, high-shine silvers and warm golds as the perfect canvas. Then, start adding statement decorations to suit your festive vibe.
Go glam with the Gold Bee Glitter Bauble, which will work with Pantone’s Colour of the Year: Classic Blue (set to be the shade of the holiday season). Or, for little ones at home, introduce Christmas characters like Matilda Mouse On Swing Bauble, featuring rustic wooden accents for a Nordic feel.
For fans of the pop art Christmas trend, offset bright fuchsias and bold turquoises with our kitsch-y Gold Glitter Pineapple Bauble. Whatever your style, have fun and try something different this year.
2. Opt for Seasonal Scents
Set the scene with festive fragrances throughout your home, switching up the scent to change the mood from room to room. Opt for warm and comforting notes in your living room for Christmas cosiness with the Cinnamon & Orange Cracker Gift Set. Or try the rich and woody Juniper Berry & Cedar Cracker Gift Set to create an inviting atmosphere in the hallway, welcoming you through the door. Use diffusers by day to release scent slowly through your home, and light candles in the evenings to emit a warm glow. Ideal for cosy winter nights at home.
3. Deck the Hall(way)
Decorations aren’t just for the tree. Create an Instagram-worthy setting by getting creative with Christmas decor, dressing different areas of your home. Build a festive display at the fireplace or console table with a classic garland draped over the surface. Style with pillar candles and Christmas Tree Candle Pins, alongside large and small Rattan Cone Trees With Lights, for a glowing arrangement.
4. Build Your Own Luxury Bar
The holiday season may look a little different this year, with many of us spending more time at home instead of the usual Christmas soirées. So, why not bring the bar to you and build a chic cocktail corner in your home?
Our tip for a space-saving bar hack: turn a fully-stocked bookshelf into a makeshift drinks area, lending a shelf or two to your stash of spirits. Or, if room permits, the Mapleton Oak 2 Tier Shelf is the perfect size for a drinks trolley. To set the scene, browse our range of bar stools. And of course, no bar is complete without a sign. If gin is your tipple of choice, the Gin-gle All The Way Sign was made for you. Cheers.
5. Decorate Your Dining Table
No matter how many people are at your dining table this year, bring a sense of occasion to Christmas lunch with a well-dressed table setting.
For smaller dining tables, create an easy yet chic centerpiece by adding a festive wreath in the middle of the table, placing a tall pillar candle in the centre. For large tables, try an alternative to classic Christmas home decorations and garlands. Add sprigs of spruce and festive foliage to small vases, and dot down the centre of the table. Pair with elegant glassware, like our Diamond Water Glasses and Pink & Gold Champagne Flutes, for a restaurant-worthy setting.
6. Bring Santa’s Grotto Home
If you’re struggling to get a visit to Santa this year, make your own grotto at home to cosy up in with your little ones. Use our range of soft Christmas blankets, throws and textured cushions piled high to create a comfy corner. We think they’ll love the Red Reindeer Throw, made for cuddling up and watching classic festive films.
Plus, don’t forget to keep our Small Silver Standing Santa close by, for a watchful eye on who’s being naughty or nice ahead of Christmas Day.Looking for ways to stay cosy this Christmas? Discover 4 ways to add a Hygge feel to your home.
