1. Festive feature wall

You can add a few decorations here and there, or you can go bold and create a stunning feature wall. Choose Scandi-style wallpaper with woodland design and add warm winter woods, such as a log basket or wooden tables, that will create arboreal accents and invokes the sense of Christmas traditions. This will create a Christmas display for every guest to admire.

2. Gold is (not only) for Christmas

From brass to industrial style, metals were on trend this year, so no need to be afraid of bling and sparkle. Golde furniture with a trendy brass coffee table can go a long way to add a touch of sophistication.
And the best is, gold is not just for the festive season but works all year round.

3. Cosy accessories

We always add accessories as an afterthought, but really this is what Christmas is all about. Making your home feel more Christmasy and cosy.
That's why: layer up with extra scatter cushions and wool blankets.

For a special touch of cosiness, use candles in a traditional red and white colour scheme.

4. Greens, plenty of greens

Who could resist the smell of fresh foliage, as part of your Christmas tree or a pretty wreath.
Again, you can go bold with a green and red theme or keep it minimalist with neutral colours on walls and furniture. This will help the green stand out.

5. Go minimal

Another fabulous trend this year, minimalist and Nordic design can easily be incorporated into your festive decorating ideas. A few sprigs of spruce and pine cones can help lift the plain design with small details.
The subtle effect is great.

Tip: Why not put a handful of pine cones in a bowl. Pine cones work great as individual decorations for your Christmas tree and throughout your home.
