Styling your home is a great way to get in the Christmas spirit. We have created a guide to help you discover the latest styling trends, unlock the secrets of Christmas tree decoration and tips to celebrate in style this year. Here are five simple steps to making your home a Christmas wonderland.
1. Don’t forget the door
Pay attention to the small details of your home and the first place to start is your front door! What better way to welcome friends and family than with a beautiful wreath which will bring joy before they even step into the house.
2. Experiment with your tree
A Christmas tree is the shining centrepiece of your home. Choose the tree that works with the space and size of your home and settle on a colour scheme which best suites the space. Opt for traditional reds and greens or white with metallic, you can even try a more contemporary look by adding bold colours to your decor this year. Adding pastel colours mixed with copper will create a joyful look. Finish off with your choice of bling and ornaments!
If you are wanting a playful look, a colourful string of pom poms might be the best choice. Ensure you are always spacing out your ornaments and keep your favourite ornaments in the front and at eye level. Remember keeping depth by staggering position along the tree branches.
3. Dress your dining table
Combining two ranges of your festive colours rather than the tradition red and green scheme you can try something like a fabric in malachite and pink peonies.
There’s always something calming ad spiritual about candles which makes them the perfect choice for Christmas. There is nothing more festive than the smells of Christmas combined with turning on your lights and decorations! You can try using different ranges and sizes of candlestick holders, this will add different height and interest to display.
5. Finish with greenery
Though in Australia we may not have snow outside we sure can still make our home feel Christmassy by having some greenery around. Try a deep green foliage in cages to make simple yet impactful display.
