By now, your decorations are up, your shopping is done and you’re starting to think about hosting the perfect Christmas. Whatever your Christmas décor and home design style, we’re here to inspire you with the perfect finishing touches to help you host the perfect Christmas.
If you’re in a cold, snowy climate, or are taking a ski trip this Christmas, don’t forget some simple home comforts. Use texture to warm up your space and inject cosiness into your celebrations. Soft throws, wool cushions and faux fur accessories all help to make a space feel warmer. You can also bring heat to your space by lighting a fire, or even a few candles – even though it may not physically be much warmer, the psychological effect makes us feel much more comfortable.

Christmas in the sun
If you’re celebrating the festivities in the sun this year, try embracing your surroundings, rather than transforming your space into an out-of-place winter wonderland. Use colour and metallics in your décor in order to inject personality into your space. You could even look to move your tree outside and create a space where you can enjoy the weather, the festivity and family, all at the same time on the big day.

If you’re celebrating a more rustic Christmas, you can give your finishing touches a contemporary edge by thinking about your fabrics and materials. Reclaimed wood is very rustic, but whitewashed, in a modern shape, it can really bring a stylish feel to your space. For a quick, last minute fix, you could create a fashionable centrepiece with a polished metal serving plates or bowl, filled with baubles complementing your colour scheme.
However you’re celebrating the festivities, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year!
