From an abundance of pretty baubles and bows, to a delicate glittering snow scheme, there are many different ways to decorate your home at Christmas time and we love them all! For this feature, we thought we’d take a peek at the slightly more modern approach to yuletide festivities, with a drop of Scandinavian essence, keeping color palettes limited and fresh, and decorations sweetly simple.
A paired down, candy cane color scheme of just red and white can be fabulously effective in a pale room.
if your walls are very dark or have a lot of pattern, then white accessories may be all you need, a collection of different shapes and textures will play with light and shadow to ice your room with a soft frosted look.
If space is limited, decorating with light can be a terrific solution to twinkle your way through December, using hanging star lights with pretty cuts outs, and adding a sprinkling of candle light to create the ultimate cozy factor.
Of course we couldn’t leave out the most popular color plan of red, gold and green, which always looks storybook perfect by a roaring fire. Resist the tangle of tinsel for your tree, and instead opt for wide curls of luxurious ribbon to achieve an up to date edge.
For a completely coordinated look, don’t forget to match the color of your gift wrapping to your tree toys! Bonus: How to wrap the perfect gift
