Christmas is all about lights! We recommend that to make your home as warm and inviting as possible you go for warm yellows and honey tones to your lighting. Introducing candles and deep rich colours will make your home feel more relaxing and cosy.

Baubles

Choosing the perfect colour baubles without your tree looking tacky can sometimes be a difficult task. We recommend you stick to two colours and make them contrasting. Black and white or plum and silver work exceptionally well together, additionally you will want to stick to a more monochrome or metallic finish for that gorgeous upmarket décor finish.

Everything looks better with a little-added sparkle at Christmas, so you can easily create the perfect centrepiece for your Christmas feast. Purchase some false fruit and sprinkle with white and silver glitter to give it a faux icy frost feel.

Bannister

Railings are not always easy to decorate and can occasionally look a little too much. However, if you use light metallic colours mixed with deep greens, it brings a festive fresh look to your home.

To add a little something different to your bannister decoration we suggest displaying family photos and pretty Christmas cards you receive by hanging them from your bannister garland for everyone to see.

Garlands
