How to Create a Festive Atmosphere at Home This Christmas
Sprucing up your home for Christmas is a fun, exciting time, but it can also be a bit difficult to decide on your artistic vision for your living room. From tinsel to trees, fairy lights to finishing touches, there’s a lot to think about when decorating your home for Christmas, and in this article, we’re going to look at how you can do it.
Shelving is a prime location for Christmas decorations. Candles, trinkets and other festive additions can add some life to your shelves. If your shelves are full, consider bordering them with some tasteful tinsel or maybe hang a wreath if there’s a suitable location for it.
Christmas, for many, is a time of excess – excess eating, drinking and dancing. It can be tempting to fill a room with baubles, tinsel and other Christmas decorations, and while this often looks good, there’s something to be said for the minimalist approach. Sparse, yet considered decoration can provide the perfect Christmas feeling without dominating a room – this is particularly helpful for small spaces.
If you have a fireplace in your living room, then you have a canvas for festive decorations. Hanging stockings off the mantelpiece is a good idea, both for decorative purposes and some extra treats – particularly if you have children. Tinsel and wreaths look great on a mantelpiece, as do candles. Coupled with a roaring fire, some tasteful decorations can help create the perfect Christmas atmosphere.
Colour Schemes for Christmas
It’s easy to choose and establish a colour scheme for your Christmas decorations. While the traditional Christmas style is green and red, maybe with a hint of gold and silver, you can choose just a couple of colours and use them. Gold and white are luxurious without being overbearing, as long as you use them wisely. Whichever Christmas colours you opt for, be consistent throughout your room or your home and you’ll enjoy a lovely festive space.
Your blinds aren’t just there to block the light out! Consider hanging decorations from your rail or in between the slats of your blinds, if you can. Usually this won’t affect the functionality of your blinds and will add some festive beauty to your room!
Christmas decorations are temporary, but your blinds are going to last a long time, so it’s important that you make the right choice.
