Looking for a way to make your home feel more festive? We’ve five brilliant ideas to help you do just that.
- Get a new blind
Window dressings can be neglected, but with the guests about to descend, there’s still time to get a new blind in time for the big day. Today’s the last day for Fauxwood and Wooden blinds, and the Roman blind deadline has passed, but for other blinds from Rollers to Verticals, you’ve until 15th to get your order in.
- Clear the clutter
Clutter builds up so easily, sometimes you just need to take a step back and view a room as a whole. When the Christmas decs are out, it can be better to put a few ornaments away. Clear the window sills and let your sparkling window dressings do the talking on their own – and if you lay out coasters, your guests will appreciate the extra space to store their drinks!
- Add some sparkle
Nothing says Christmas like a smattering of fairy lights. Lift a whole room with a handful of the sparkliest ones you can find. It’s an easy way to make any space feel that bit more special.
- Tie in your decorations
One brilliant way to nail the Christmas look is to tie in your existing décor with your tree and other holiday decs. This room already had a dashing gold Roman blind at the window (though if you don’t already have one, try a Roller blind delivered in time for the big day) so we styled our Christmas tree to match.
- Switch out some art
The beauty of the trend for gallery walls and leaning wall art is that they are so easy to mix up. Give your gallery wall a festive flavour by printing some imagery off the internet, using old Christmas cards or displaying the kids’ masterpieces. It’s like waving a Christmassy magic wand on your room.
