Festive Decor: 7 Tips For The Season

Christmas is the perfect season to go wild with festive decorations and to reinvent your home in true seasonal colours and decor. Here we share 10 festive decor tips to try at home.

  1. It’s all about the tree

Christmas trees come in various shapes, colours and sizes. Choose one to suit your interior styling and bring a touch of colour or whimsy to your home this season. We love the minimalist white look for a Nordic inspired interior. Alternative, decorate driftwood or simple vines for a more streamlined choice this year.

2. Add a bold wreath to your front door

Nothing is quite as festive as a beautiful wreath at this time of your year. Buy a ready-made wreath or try a DIY version and get creative. Mix it up with greenery and Christmas baubles with a touch of metallic tones for an inspired look.

3. Go for bright patterns

Set a different tone from the conventional red and green of the season. We love bold prints and patterns for an African inspired festive season. Decorate your hallway or entrance with vibrant prints, colourful accents and more for a special appearance.

4. Different and unique decor

Christmas decorations need not be standard. Toss the conventional baubles and introduce your own shimmery decor items. Create a riot of pattern and texture in the hall with cascading iridescent decs and a fabulous peacock feather print as featured below.

5. Create custom wall art

Add colour to your walls with your own installations and creative expressions to bring cheer to your home this festive season. Nature-inspired elements are always a winner. Think butterflies, birds, branches and more.


6. Don’t forget the festive table

Go for elaborate decorations around your festive table this season. Bring in bright florals to inspire your own creations and let this take centre stage on your Christmas table.

Greenery brings an instant freshness to your space – perfect for the Christmas period. Add a special bouquet or greenery arrangement to a mantel, tabletop or even a stair railing for a truly festive feel.
