Christmas is a time to get creative, especially with your interior decor and festive decorations. Here we share some contemporary ideas to help you create a truly unique Christmas spirit this year.
Instead of your normal Christmas tree, why not get creative and bring in a different, distinct tree this year. Geometric lights, conical shapes and more will all hint at a Christmas tree without the conventional look of a green, red and white tree. Obelisks are also great for adding to a tabletop or shelf and incorporating some unconventional Christmas spirit into your home.
Lights are a fun way to add Christmas cheer – from the front yard to your windows, living room and even the kids’ bedrooms. Invest in a string of fairy lights or curtain lights and drape this in your favourite spaces to add illumination and a little magic to your home this Christmas. We also love the idea of using lights instead of conventional wrapping methods to gift someone something special this Christmas.
Think out of the box when it comes to your advent calendar this Christmas and allow your kids to open up something original and exciting instead. Here a beautiful apothecary chest has been used to hide away little treats for the children. You could use existing furniture and dress it up for the season or create your own customised little advent calendar with miniature boxes or gifts bags and hang these up in your living room.
Bring nature into your home for an inspired contemporary Christmas this season. A beautiful wreath or green installation will add colour and flair to your interior. Match these in complementary colours or go for something completely different and modern in a striking colour with playful textures. It will certainly become a showstopper for the season.
