Our top tips for decorating for Christmas

Christmas decoration ideas

Christmas is almost here, which means it’s all hands on deck to get our homes ready for their closeup on Christmas Day. While we’re certain you have the bulk of your decorations up and exuding joy, there are a few last-minute touches everyone can make to add yet more festive spirit to the occasion.

Whether you are an early Christmas decorator or prefer a last minute spree, you can use the following Christmas decoration tips to keep that seasonal excitement flowing.

Add pops of colour

Neutral Christmas décor schemes may be all the rage this year, but you can add interest and fun to those back to basic themes with a poignant pop of colour. From festive red and decadent purple to crisp blue and forest green, any colour can help you jazz up a more pared back scheme for a fun and unforgettable Christmas look.

Create a feature

Whether decorating for year-round appeal or just for the season, the same principles apply, especially when it comes to creating a focal point. The fireplace is a natural choice, and one that can really look the part during Christmas with the right touches.

Taking a hint from the style of your fire is a great place to begin when establishing a festive theme that fits. A mantelpiece décor trend that works well for both modern and traditional hearths could even pave the way for a very ethical Christmas indeed as Ideal Home explains:

“Create a stunning focal point with an abundance of dried flowers, for an amazing Christmas living room decor idea. First, place pieces of the florist’s oasis along the mantelpiece shelf. Starting from the corner, add foliage and flowers, trailing them across the top. Then work upwards and outwards from the corner place to create a flat cascade of flowers, with taller lengths behind and shorter in front.”
