By now, your decorations are likely up, your shopping is done and you’re starting to think about hosting the perfect Christmas celebration. Whatever your holiday décor and home design style, we’re here to inspire you with the perfect finishing touches to wow your guests.
If you’re in a cold, snowy climate you can use some simple home comforts to create an inviting and comfortable setting. Use texture to warm up your space and inject coziness into your celebrations. Soft throws, wool cushions and faux fur accessories all help to make a space feel warmer. Light a fire, or even a few candles to create the perfect backdrop for opening presents on Christmas Eve.

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 color 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 centerpiece with a polished metal serving plates or bowl, filled with baubles complementing your color scheme.
However you’re celebrating the festivities, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year!
