This year, Christmas will begin whilst we’re still locked down, and whilst that means we can’t partake in a lot of the traditions we’re used to, it also means we have way more time to decorate, so many people are going all-out with decorations this year. That means that decorations are no longer limited to the living room- this year, people are deciding to make Christmas decorating a whole-home project.
If you’re up for a challenge, try tying all of your indoor decorations together under one common theme or colour scheme- this could be a frosty blue and white, a minimalist white and silver or a bold multicolour. It’ll provide a great project as you try and source the right pieces to make it work- you could even try doing a different theme for every room.
If you’re the sort of person who decorates the outside of their house, congratulations- you’re already winning at Christmas. If you aren’t, but would like to be, you can’t go wrong with fairy lights in any piece of foliage you can find, on walls, and around doorways. If you’d prefer to add a more unique touch, there are plenty of beautiful wreaths and outdoor ornaments you can make or buy.
For bedrooms, the sky is the limit. Forget pleasing all members of the family and just go for the Christmas decorations that make you feel most festive. You could even go as far as getting a small tree to sit on your bedside table. If you have a statement headboard, this is a great way to complement it. If setting up a whole extra tree is too much stress, you can also create a Christmassy feel by adorning your headboard with Christmas lights or hanging a stocking.
Whatever you do, remember that Christmas decorating isn’t about being super stylish or overly-collected; it’s about making memories and creating an atmosphere that feels special. If it isn’t perfection, don’t panic- as long as you enjoy it it’s exactly right
