Decorating your home for Christmas is one of the most heart-warming activities that you can do with your family. You can get together with your loved ones and have fun, chat, and relax while enjoying the festive mood. Having a theme for your Christmas décor can help to make your home achieve a more cohesive look. In this post, we take a look at some themes you can consider for decorating your home.
A Cottage Christmas
A rustic cottage theme will bring beauty to any home with its cosy, unsophisticated style. Ribbon bows achieve this look effortlessly. The best kind for this look is plaid-patterned ribbons. Add fur throws and comfortable slippers to the decor, and it will feel like a lovely weekend at the cottage.
Red is a classic colour for Christmas, and it will fit the cottage theme perfectly. Use acorns, pinecones and small branches to create small arrangements and table centrepieces. Dried orange slices are also perfect for this theme.
All That Glitters Is Gold
Few things are prettier than golden, shiny Christmas ornaments and decorations. If you want an elegant, gorgeous Christmas theme, consider going all gold this year. You can use a consistent shade of gold throughout your home for consistency or combine textures for more depth.
Golden ribbons, baubles, and warm white lights or candles are a homeowner’s best friend for this theme. Use golden accents for your home and outdoor decorations as well.
Christmas in the Nordics is nothing less than magical. Scandinavians love to cosy up inside their homes during the long, cold winters and create an extra comfortable space that focuses on nature and simplicity.
For a Scandinavian-style Christmas tree, use candle-shaped lights, classic ornaments like angels and shiny baubles, and natural-coloured items. Wrap gifts in simple brown paper, tie them with rope and place them under the tree.
Foraged Flare and Fun
If you want to go for something original, consider replacing your Christmas tree with something unique. You can get extra creative and use a cactus as a tree or create a tree shape with wooden planks, reclaimed wood, or even books.
Even if you already have a spruce or pine tree decorated for Christmas, you can make a mini version from pasta, pinecones, buttons, pom poms or other crafting materials. Find inspiration online and turn it into a fun DIY project for the kids.
A Home that Meets Your Needs
No matter what Christmas theme you choose this year for your home, the most important thing is that it suits your preferences and meets your needs. In the same vein, having features and functionalities in your house that best meet your needs can help it feel like a home.
