Oh my gosh, is there anything better than shopping for Christmas decor? Definitely, once autumn hits, there’s no finer pastime than browsing the pop-up decoration stores or sitting home browsing catalogues.
There’s certainly something heart-warming and comforting about decking the halls. Even when it’s raining, pouring, outside, and you’ve just suffered through the hardest day at work, returning to a warm, calm home can fill you full-to-brimming with festive cheer. It’s infectious, didn’t you know?
Whether you prefer minimal decorate or you like to tinsel things up to the nines, it’s possible to create a festive feel to suit all interior styles.
Make the switch from artificial to real fir
First and foremost, a Christmas tree provides the ideal opportunity to bring the tranquillity of the lush, green outdoors, indoors, over the advent period. While an artificial tree may be practical, according to the laws of feng shui, fake plants of any kind bring bad energy into the home and will drag down your vibe.
Now, you may not be into feng shui. I can’t say that I’m an expert myself, but try it out. Make the switch from artificial to real fir this year and feel the difference. There’s something in it, I can promise you. Whether it’s the authentic aroma, the oxygen-enriched air, or the imperfectly perfect look of your tree, there’s something really special about having going real. It’s true, plants are good for the soul.
All those Christmassy smells
On the theme of naturally lifting the spirit of the home, there are another two important factors, smell and light. While your natural tree will ideally bring both to your living space, there are a number of ways to enhance this further.
Winter Berries tealights from PartyLite can be scattered around the home, creating a cosy Christmassy ambience by adding soft fragrance and multiple points of light. The Winter Berries blend is perfect, as it has uplifting, fruity notes of dark cranberry and glistening pomegranate, while hints of spiced cinnamon and quince give the scent its seasonal kick. Added to your favourite tealight holder or a special one that you pull out just for the festive season.
Because when your home smells good… you feel good.
Select your colours
To avoid your home feeling cluttered with Christmas bits, unify the colours you select for your seasonal décor. Rustic woods, reds, and whites are a traditional favourite. Or if you love a bit of contemporary Crimbo glitz, blue, white, and silver work well, too. Twinkling garlands, twisted around handrails, perfectly placed mistletoe, and diligently-designed wreaths, will really give your home a classy, Christmas look.
Don’t forget some cutesy Christmas figures, too. After all, Christmas is for the kids too, remember!
