7th December 2017 Deck The Halls: Top Tips For Christmas Decoration

Holly boughs, bells and baubles. Christmas is here, time to deck the halls!

Check out our top tips for Christmas decoration.

Colours of Christmas

For the style conscious, Christmas can throw a glittering curve ball as our carefully thought out colour palettes are threatened by an incoming onslaught of seasonal decoration. Of course, the reds and greens of Christmas past are not the only festive options. Reminiscent of starry skies, this year there is a trend for midnight blue accessories paired with dazzling gold. Or opt for luxe pink accessories alongside a contrast of neutral white.

Red Christmas Decorations

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree

In the movies, the decorating of a Christmas tree is often a fun family affair. Yet in reality, the scene often ends in chaos, with mum and dad arguing over whether it is straight. Of course when it is finally upright, the tree should be a thing of beauty and bring that extra bit of added sparkle to your home. The perfect blend of decorations is often a mixture of old, new and sometimes a paper made effort by the youngest family member. Take care to remember that Christmas is for making memories, so whilst style is important…don’t be scared to add a little soul.

Style The Home member Rose and Grey have carefully curated a wonderful offering of Christmas baubles. It’s hard to pick a favourite, but when pushed, we can’t help but fall in love with these feathery decorations. Perfect for adding extra style to a traditionalist tree.

The Weather Outside Is Frightful…

The odds have been slashed on a white Christmas, so keeping cosy and warm during the festive season is a top priority. If you have been following the Style The Home blog over the autumn, you will possibly have already been layering up your home with chunky knit cushions and faux fur throws and now it is time for those finishing touches.

After a busy day of festivities, gathering around the crackle of an open fire is just magical. Stylishly stack the logs, create abstract decorations with twigs and don’t forget the stockings. Traditionalist will probably prefer the large red variety, but at Style The Home we love these stretchy and stripy stockings from Feather and Nest.

Deck The Halls

If you take a modernist approach to Christmas decoration, the thought of strung Christmas cards along a bannister rail, may induce a frown. Thankfully, after chatting with stylish company Lime Lace Interiors, we have a solution to your problem. Check out this geometric reindeer Christmas card holder. Manufactured from wire it is an eye catcher in any home.

Once you’ve finished with the tree, the fireplace and dealt with the issue of displaying Christmas cards, it is time to prep your festive table…
