Three perfect interior themes for Christmas


Home for Christmas

There is nothing quite like stepping out of the dark into a home that’s all dressed up for Christmas and now is time to ‘deck the halls’ and get those decorations out of the attic once more.  While it’s always nice to have some traditional family pieces, just like any other home interior, sometimes it’s also nice to have a new look – even if it is just for Christmas. Here we’ve suggested three themes that you may like. 

 

Traditional

The traditional Christmas home will feature lots of seasonal colours including of course, plenty of red.  Red is the forever festive colour always associated with this time of year. Red baubles, red tinsel, red crackers and party hats – the traditional home will be awash with red in all of its various shades.

If you want to pick up the traditional theme in your home furnishings it’s relatively easy to give your home a quick traditional Christmas makeover simply by adding some red accessories such as rugs, cushions and throws.  We love this red rug which is perfect for the season.


                           Natural Christmas
 
Going back to nature at this time of year is becoming more popular as people reject the ‘shop bought’ decorations in favour of quite literally, home grown alternatives. 

Naturally a real Christmas tree is a must but instead of using tinsel and baubles the ‘naturalist’ will opt for pine cones, mistletoe, holly and berries to dress it and the room.  You can have lots of fun with the kids making handmade decorations like good old fashioned paper chains and oranges with cloves will also add to the mood.

The natural look should feature home furnishings that are more subtle and shades of green should be the main focus.  This Bokhara green rug is ideal for the natural theme.

 
Minimialist 

If you want minimal then take your inspiration from our European neighbours in Scandinavia. They’ve always been able to create warm winter homes while still keeping lines clean and colours minimal and all things Scandi continues to be a popular trend.


Your décor needs to be a palette of neutrals featuring cream walls, blonde wooden furniture and pale wood floors. The Scandinavian Christmas look features several key pieces throughout the room from the lightly dressed real Christmas tree to wooden hearts, large candles, and perhaps a string of silver lights across the hearth. If you do want to introduce a dash of colour, it’s literally just that – a dash. Perhaps a red candle, a green wreath or even a blue table runner. Keep the soft furnishings light and add in a luxurious sheepskin shaggy rug to complete the Scandinavian mood.
