Many homeowners cringe when December rolls around as they feel obliged to put up Christmas decorations that might lower the tone of their interior design and make their house look a bit tacky. However, this does not have to be the case, as there are some very luxurious options when it comes to festive décor these days.
For tips on how to add a stylish wintry touch to your home, read on.
- The right Christmas tree
Those who grew up in the 1970s and ‘80s will remember cheap-looking artificial Christmas trees laden with shiny tinsel and garish baubles. However, tree decorating has come a long way since then.
Not only do fake trees look infinitely better and more realistic than in decades gone by, but you can adorn it with an array of luxurious ornaments that compliment the interior design in your luxury home.
Interior design blogger Katalin Callahan told the Mirror she suggests getting a flocked tree without any lights, as any decoration “will give a lovely pop of colour against” this type of tree.
- Tree decorations
Instead of throwing any bright colour on your tree, it is important to think about how the whole thing will look and its overall appearance against your current décor.
Ms Callahan says gold or white ribbon looks beautiful on a tree, as well as both small and large glass ornaments, gold or champagne decorations and velvet poinsettia flowers, and a gold or white Christmas skirt. Of course, no tree is complete without a topper, in which case, she recommends a star, angel or three different picks that you place in the top of the centre pole of the tree.
- ‘Less is more’
Lots of people go wrong by being over the top with their decorations. However, one of the best ways to achieve a stylish Christmas theme in your home is by adopting the ‘less is more’ approach and sticking with a few simple, but stylish ornaments.
This is exactly what Victoria Beckham has done, with the fashion designer preferring a minimalist take on Christmas tree decorating. She uploaded a picture of her tree on social media earlier this week. It was adorned with fairylights and a few white and gold baubles, with the Spice Girl commenting, “Now will Mr Beckham insist on more decorations?”.
- Grand statement
Instead of throwing a few ornaments here and some tinsel there, the trick to getting your Christmas decorations to look stylish and well-thought-through is to allow them to make a grand statement.
Don’t try and hide them between your current picture frames and lampshades, as the place will only look cluttered. Instead, invest in fewer pieces but make them bold.
