‘Tis the season to be jolly. The countdown to Christmas has officially begun.
We know that decking up your home for the holidays is no easy feat. From trees to lights to wreaths, there are plenty of decorations along with creative ideas to look into. Whether you are a simple decorator or a festivities fanatic, we have several options for you. Regardless of the path you choose, we are sure it will create a magical home for Christmas.
We have put together 15 interior design ideas to create a statement-making home. These creative Christmas home decor ideas are all the inspiration you need to celebrate the holidays in style.
#1 Christmas tree
There is perhaps no holiday symbol more recognisable than the Christmas tree. Even for those who don’t celebrate the holiday, the sweet fragrance of the tree evokes a feeling of warmth and joy every year, particularly during Christmas.
To start with, for those who celebrate with aplomb, decide whether you want to keep a real tree or an artificial one in your home. A real tree gives that glorious pine fragrance throughout the entire house but means more maintenance while faux trees make for easier assembly and clean up.
Who said a wreath is only meant for your front door? You can up the holiday spirit with a wreath on every window of your house, even go for a cutesy look with mini wreaths. You can give your wreath some glam touches with glistening ornaments and bountiful pinecones for an arboreal elegant feel. You can also try a berry red wreath for an unconventional look.
Don’t leave any corner without adding a cheer of Christmas. The dinner is always a highlight of Christmas Eve, so don’t forget about your table decor. Adorn the table with candle holders and a plain white or a checkered tablecloth to set the tone for the festivities. You can also showcase a gorgeous floral arrangement since there is nothing quite like an eye-catching floral arrangement in festive hues. Enhance the look by surrounding it with glowing candles.
#4 Fairy Lights
Creating a welcoming ambience for the holidays can be super simple and easily achieved. By opting for golden fairy lights on your tree and all over your house, you can set the mood for festivities instantly while also creating a cosy atmosphere. If your kitchen has hooks, hanging these twinkling fairy lights is a no-hassle decor trick.
#5 Snowflake accents
We know that all eyes will be on your tree for Christmas, but you can bring attention to other spaces in your home as well. A simple trio of snowflake wall accents is all that is needed to enhance your Christmas look.
Get into the holiday spirit by upgrading your curtains for the season. A classic plaid or a berry red is perfect for a sophisticated look and it can work wonderfully as a backdrop to your glitzy decor.
#7 Table Centerpieces
Shiny ornaments need not be used only for Christmas trees. You can give a twist by turning them into lovely table centrepieces, displayed beautifully in a glass bowl.
#8 Furnishings and textiles
They may be easy to overlook, but don’t miss the opportunity to make your bed a part of your holiday decor this year. Throw some accent cushions with Christmas motifs for a festive touch.
#9 Christmas stockings
It is a tradition for many to hang stockings each season so doesn’t forget to keep this classic Christmas aesthetic alive in your home. From gorgeous green to classic red, get ready to be surprised by the ways this accent piece can elevate any space. You can choose from a wide variety of stockings replete with glitter, holly and pom-poms. You can personalise them with tags, names or with DIY wood letters.
Replace fine china for a festive assortment of flatware. Choose elegant sets with metallic accents for a dazzling effect. You can also consider a set of red patterned kitchen towels as it is perfect to achieve that wintery holiday aesthetic.
#11 Floor mats
When you are decorating every surface of your home, don’t overlook the flooring. Add warmth to your floor with a vibrant doormat that embodies the festive season.
#12 Ceiling festoons
Don’t forget the ceiling! Let the festivities overflow into every part of the house. Hang up some festive festoons, baubles and decorations from the ceiling for a quick, easy and fun Christmas décor idea.
#13 Festive potpourri
For a more natural and understated holiday vibe, look for traditional winter ingredients such as acorns, berries, wood, dried fruits, cinnamon and pinecones. Place them in a tray or a bowl and voila! This outdoors-inspired look spells earthy elegance.
#14 Christmas gifts
Who said you cannot use Christmas gifts as décor? In fact, why waste time on gift wrapping all the Christmas goodies to perfection if you are not going to flaunt them as décor? Line your entryway with gift boxes in fun patterns or stack them up beautifully on shelves. You can also line them on the window sill, under the tree or wherever your heart fancies!
#15 Wall colours
Wintery pastels like mint green, pink, peach, baby blue, butter yellow and lilac are our personal favourites when it comes to wall colours for Christmas. However, you can also create an accent wall with a bold colour palette like deep red that works all-year round. It is stunning enough for accent walls in your living room or in your bedroom but also stylish enough to spruce up your entire room. You can also try a vibrant shade of green if red is too bold for your liking.
Hope you derive ample inspiration by some of our favourite decor tips and manage to achieve these magical Christmas looks.
