4 Timeless Themes to Decorate Your Home This Christmas
1. Winter Wonderland
When someone says Christmas, what colours does your mind immediately wander to? We're guessing that it will be one of two colour combinations: red and gold or silver and white.
Sparkling Silvers & Frosty Whites
Nothing quite says winter like silver and white Christmas decorations. Whether it snows or not, Winter Wonderland tree decorations and ornaments create a magical, wintry feel inside your home. Take the edge off the coolness of white Christmas decorations with the warming glow of fairy lights.
Create a Cosy Space with Soft Fabrics
The Winter Wonderland decorating trend is one of the most luxurious in our list. Team with super soft throw blankets on sofas and beds to enhance the cosy theme. Swap out your regular scatter cushions for seasonal silver and white colours.
2. Warm Cinnamon
Whether it's baked into rolls, sprinkled onto a batch of freshly baked biscuits or wafting soothingly from a scented candle, cinnamon is a staple of Christmas. This makes it a perfect Christmas decorating trend to use year after year.
Toasty Shades to Warm The Soul
Our Warm Cinnamon edit looks to the warming shade of Christmas - neutral browns, hints of bronze and flourishes of amber. Just imagine yourself sitting in an armchair by the fire on a chilly December eve, the smell of cinnamon in the air as the lights on the tree flicker beneath pinecones and sprigs of holly...
Warm Neutrals & Hints of Bronze
Bring Warm Cinnamon to life in your home with wooden ornaments, bronze tree decorations and hints of orange and gold. Tartan, leather and check fabrics also look great with this Christmas decorating trend. Add texture with bean bags, throws and cushions to create a cosy woodland lodge ambience.
