It’s that beautiful season when there’s a nip in the air but the love, kindness and joy of the festival warms the bones. And while you may still be wondering what to gift your loved ones, what to rustle up for the perfect Christmas meal, don’t let your home take a backseat. After all, spending quality time at the pad with family and friends is what Christmas is all about. With a little inspiration, it’s really not that hard to transform your living space into a veritable wonderland this year.

“Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la, la la la la!”

Not just your halls but every room in the house could do with a touch of magic to make it a Christmas haven. Here are our top, tried and tested, Xmas decoration tips, to keep it chic and elegant and yet rooted in opulent tradition.

Transform Your Living Room With The Magical Touch Of Christmas

The quintessential Christmas show-stopper is, of course, the tree! Standing tall, topped off with a sparkling golden star or delicate-winged angel, the tree embodies the Christmas spirit. We say, don’t break with tradition, but go all out and adorn it with quirky and unique Xmas decorations this year. Ornaments boasting family pictures, handmade felt hanging decorations and hand-painted wooden and glass baubles will elevate your tree and give it real character.

Minimalistic Yet Fun Christmas Decorations

If your living room is small and cannot accommodate a towering tree, worry not. You can always opt for a tabletop tree or a tree in a jar. Minimalistic and fun! While wrapping gifts to stack under the tree go with a colour theme – you can choose from classic Christmas tones or opt for something different to up the kitsch factor!

A Pop Of Colour To Bring In A Joyous Vibe

Swap out the usual couch cushions with ones in festive hues and add a plaid throw or rug in too for a pop of colour. You can simply tie large bows or sprigs of fresh pine on already existing decor like picture frames, mirrors and bookshelves to completely up Xmas vibes. Add Christmas figurines to glass cabinets and shelves and drape strings of fairy lights across window sills and display units. Casually placed candles, pine cones and citrus fruits will add to the warmth of the family room too.

Christmas Decor For Your Dining Room

The dining table will be the star of your Christmas meal and deserves equal attention to detail. Elegant metallics in snowflake silver or starlight gold pair beautifully with natural pine cones and light-coloured and rustic wooden serve ware. As an Xmas centrepiece, you can put together an easy candle stand with a bunch of small twigs or cinnamon sticks. And, voila! You have the perfect table setting for the perfect Christmas feast. If you have steered clear of bright colours on the table, indulge with bright wreaths of evergreens hanging from light fittings, windows or door frames.

Brighten Up The Bedroom With Xmas Cheer

It’s tough to get out of bed in this weather but the right Christmas additions to the bedroom will bring a smile to your sleepy face. A bright-coloured contrasting blanket strewn over the bed can be supplemented with a few matching throw cushions. Strategically placed red and gold candles on bed-side tables or window sills can do wonders to break the dreariness of winter. Even a string of fairy lights casually draped over the headboard or across the dresser will instantly bring a Christmas feel to the room.

Christmas Decoration Ideas For Your Kitchen

Your guests may not wander into your sacred space – the kitchen – but you are going to want to be inspired while rustling up a scrumptious hearty Christmas meal or even a hot cup of cheer (aka cocoa!). Kitchen cabinets can be easily decked up with sprigs or garlands of evergreens – fresh ones lend a beautiful aroma to home too. Festive ribbons in the holiday colours – in checks, polka dots or chevrons – can be tied around pots and vases. Dull corners can be spruced up in a trice with brightly coloured candles. And you can easily swap out ordinary plates for solid red ones to complete your Christmas kitchen decor.

Spread The Christmas Sparkle Throughout Your Home

Apart from obvious rooms, you can easily infuse Christmas spirit into any nook or cranny of your house. If you have a staircase running down the centre of your home, don’t forget to drape an eclectic Christmas garland and fairy lights along the banister. You can even hang up decorative stockings on the staircase for a merrier look.

DIY Christmas Decor Ideas For Your Home

Simple and handmade decorations are sometimes the best options, easy on the pocket and on the eye. A table or corner filled with homemade lanterns – old glass bottles filled with string lights – looks both quirky and festive.
