How to decorate your home this Christmas

Christmas is just around the corner and, obviously, it is time to decorate your home in order to get into the spirit of the upcoming festivities. In this article, we want to give you a series of tips to help you decorate your home this Christmas.

1. Candles must be the focal point

Candles are very interesting lighting resources throughout the year but most importantly, they are able to add a warm and welcoming touch to any room in Christmas. Also, if you choose perfumed candles, they will flood the house with a pleasant scent. To make them look more festive, put twigs of berries, red ribbons or dried pineapples around them.

2. A wreath on every door

And not only on the doors, but also on the windows, mirrors, on the walls and, even, if you are lucky enough to have one, on the fireplace. Wreaths are able to represent the classic spirit of Christmas like no other decorative feature. You can choose to make them by hand or buy them directly from a shop.

3. Hanging ornaments in the living room

Stars and snowflakes hanging from the ceiling are excellent options to decorate your living room. In fact, if you are going to celebrate the Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve dinner in your living room, you will be in charge of hanging that cheerful and fun star or snowflake during the party. 

4. Red must be present

The Christmas colour par excellence is red. After all, it is the one used by Santa Claus and the one usually used for tree balls. Aside from wreaths, balls and fabrics in this colour can give a natural touch to your home. Consider including these features on your doorstep, on the terrace or in any other strategic location in your home. The results will be wonderful.

5. The Christmas tree

We can not finish this series of tips on decorating your home for Christmas without talking about the traditional tree. Depending on the decorative style that suits your home, opt for the classic, modern or minimalist style. In fact, more and more people are choosing trees that only have branches and not leaves. These will definitely fit really well in Nordic settings.

Follow these tips that we have just given you and you can be sure that, during the next few weeks, your house will overflow with Christmas atmosphere and will be the most welcoming place for you, your family and your friends when they come for a visit during the holidays.
