Outsmart last minute stress and huge to-do lists with our six deco tips that you can set in motion today! The best part? They’re long-lasting, so no need to clear them away until you want to. 1. Frame a warm welcome. Skip having to hoover up the leaves from your real wreath and opt for a more lasting version. Spray paint a frame you have at home in your favorite color. Wind some festive fairy lights round your “wreath”. 2. Get your hallway holiday ready. Encourage guests to hang their coats.
And leave their mobiles at the door. Form an arrow with fairy lights to lead them to the gadget drop off station (here soft baskets are used). Update your furniture with a Christmas theme cross-stitch using wool or thick thread. 3. Create a festive (and fire-safe) display. Group a few different battery-driven LED-candles in clear vases (bonus – no more hard to remove wax stains!). Make a deco piece for the window by hanging up a branch using string and attaching some ornaments (here mini houses are used).
4. Get set for starry night snuggle. Cozy up under the warm glow of stars. Hang star-shaped pendant lamp shades from the ceiling over your bed. Switch off all other lights, then sink back and relax together. 5. Forget the traditional holiday palette. Go for textiles in neutral hues that will last beyond the holiday season. Add some depth with a couple of coordinating tones. Use an open basket to store everything so soft and cozy comfort is just an arm’s reach away. 6. Beautify with bulbs. Pop a couple of bulbs into vases.
