'Tis the season to add sparkle to your home decor! While the weather outside is frightful, a few festive touches inside make homes feel cosy and delightful. Whether stockings hung by the fireplace, handcrafted decorations, or scented candles, well-chosen decor sets the tone for a memorable occasion with friends and family. We’ve gathered simple inspiration for making homes merry and bright.
Make the Christmas tree a focal point during the holidays
Get the whole family involved by choosing a theme and adding decorations — glass balls, ribbons, lights and decorative ornaments to hang from branches. A star or angel traditionally tops the tree. Themes may be fashionable like white-on-white, inspired with family photos and heirloom mementos, or Santa’s workshop, with whimsical embellishments like shimmering reindeer.
Be on the lookout for small festive finds with big impact
Christmas wine stoppers, holiday-themed kitchen accessories and miniature angels capture the brilliance of Christmas.
All that glitters is gold
Everything from snowflakes to fine china can be found in this season’s trendiest holiday colour — Champagne — gold’s softer complement. A sprinkle of silver is the perfect pairing and will make a chicly monochrome mantletop pop.
