Are you hopelessly lost when it comes to what Christmas decorations you want in your home? If you have no idea where to start, keep reading for our interior specialists’ tips on how to decorate your home this Christmas.

Artificial Trees

Many people claim the best tree to have at Christmas is a real one, but they can be such a pain to clean up after! Plus when the needles start to fall, it can ruin the whole look of your tree.

With an artificial tree, you have the choice of a narrow build, or a full bodied, fluffy look. Not to mention they come in an array of colours too.

If you’re missing the scent of pine, grab a candle or two and place them in your room – well away from the tree of course!

Merry and Bright

Fairy lights aren’t just for the tree. They can illuminate your mantlepiece, adding a subtle glow. Or with battery-operated lights, you can coil them around your bannister, creating a beautiful pathway up to the second floor.

With a set of outdoor fairy lights, you can add a touch of magic to trees or shrubs in your garden, or a trellis.

Whether you choose a traditionally shaped bulb, or something a little more quirky, fairy lights make a wonderful cost-effective addition to any home looking for a little Christmas sparkle.

Traditional or Quirky?

Christmas 2017 brings with it two trends: metallics and quirky.

We know metallics have been around for a while, but with rose gold continuing to become more popular, you can expect to see more of it this Christmas!

The metallics our experts saw, encouraged thoughts of a modern day Gatsby, bringing the 1920s into the present with their grandeur and splendour.

For those looking to incorporate family decorations, or everything they’ve collected over the years, the quirky trend is perfect.

Inspired by the thought of ‘personalisation’, the quirky trend encourages you to bring your personality to your decorations. Still have that ornament your child made in nursery? Hang it with pride!

No More Tears!

Recently decorated your home? Why not use your leftover wallpaper as wrapping paper?

Yes, it sounds a little strange, but hear us out. Wallpaper is naturally much stronger than wrapping paper meaning you won’t experience the rips that come when you’re trying in vain to wrap presents.

If you are using a plain paper, why not get the kids to decorate the gifts with their festive doodles?
