Colour Palette

If you are looking to create an elegant style then it’s best to stick to a chosen colour palette. For example this could be silver, white and blue with a wintery elegance. Or you could go for a more traditional colour palette with red, green and gold. You could bring a sense of fun into your home with a bright colour palette such as pink, turquoise and silver.

Choosing a colour palette will enable you to have a thought out, cohesive look throughout your home. This will also bring a sense of calm to your surroundings, which is definitely needed around Christmas time when life gets hectic and stressful.

Plan Ahead

Leaving the Christmas decorating to the last minute doesn’t lend itself to a thought-out stylish look. If you plan ahead with the look you are after, have your Christmas tree and decorations bought in time, then you have a better chance of it looking exactly how you want it.

If you plan ahead and get the Christmas decorating finished in plenty of time, then you are also leaving plenty of time for all the other important tasks at Christmas such as buying and wrapping presents, planning what you are going to buy for your Christmas lunch and attending Christmas parties.

If you put your Christmas tree up in plenty of time then you have someone you can leave the Christmas presents when you have wrapped them. You can also enjoy the Christmas decorations for longer. After all, you’ve spent all that time putting them up, you might as well enjoy them for longer.

Nature

Bring nature into your home when decorating your home at Christmas with some mistletoe, holly and pine cones. Nature evokes feelings of calm and tranquillity which is needed around the hectic Christmas schedule. Mistletoe and holly also bring feelings of nostalgia and tradition into the home.

A great way to decorate your home at Christmas time is to buy a Christmas plant such as a poinsettia.

Guests

When it comes to decorating your home at Christmas you may forget about decorating your guest bedroom if you don’t use it very much. Families often have relatives to stay over the Christmas holidays so it’s a nice touch to extend your decorating to your guest bedroom.

Don’t let your guest bedroom become the junk room this Christmas, turn it into a haven of peace and tranquillity this Christmas, after all Christmas can become hectic and stressful so your guests may want a space to escape to for some downtime. Make your friends or relatives feel special this Christmas by decorating their bedroom.

 

Traditions

Do you have any traditions when it comes to decorating your home at Christmas? You may have some favourite decorations that your children have made or even that you made while you were a child. I think it’s important to not get too bogged down with making everything perfect and to retain some sense of fun and tradition. After all, Christmas is all about family!

 

Most of all, enjoy your decorating your home this Christmas!
