Get your home Christmas ready
With Christmas just around the corner, now is the time to think about welcoming a touch of festivity into your home with a few simple touches.
Here’s some effective ways to add some festive cheer:
First Impressions: Set the scene as soon as you walk in the door with a festive display in the hallway. Even the smallest of hallways can benefit from a Christmas scene. Think mini Christmas trees or characters, foliage and plenty of twinkle! If you’re lucky to have a spacious hallway, consider setting up a drinks station to welcome guests with a festive cocktail as they soon as walk in the door.

Cosy Corners: there’s nothing quite like curling up by the fire with a mulled wine in the comfiest chair in the house. Incorporate rustic textures, neutral tones and warm hued lights to create the perfect cosy corner no matter how minimal your living space.

Finishing Touches: Impress your guests with an impactful festive table scape. Create a Nordic festive look with natural hues or layer the table with runners and festive place mats to add depth and a touch of luxury. Set the table with your favourite crockery and glassware, mix and match your dinner plates and side dishes and add a festive flourish of greenery, candles and a striking centrepiece.
