Christmas is officially upon us and by now all decorations should be on the tree or hanging in windows in your homes. At Amara we are always looking for the top festive decorating tips and nowhere gives you more than Pinterest. Here are the top ideas we have found so far…
The fireplace has always been the centre of Christmas festivities; it’s where Santa climbs down from chimney & where we traditionally hang our stockings. If you are lucky enough to have a fireplace in your home, make sure you don’t neglect it this Christmas by making it a key feature & decorating it just as much as your tree.
A contemporary take on Christmas is a key trend this year with copious amounts of white & silver hues mixed with unusual brights such as orange or teal. You could even mix in another key trend to make your home really stand out. The modern Scandi trend is here to stay so why not incorporate this into your festive décor? Remember to stick to neutral hues and keep it minimal yet chic.
Don’t just get a standard Christmas wreath this year, personalise it! Whether with the family name or initial, your favourite winter foliage or stunning Christmas decorations, make sure yours stands out from the rest.
For traditionalists out there, don’t be pressured into going contemporary just because others are, the beauty of Christmas is that décor opportunities are endless and any style can work well if done properly. Stick with a traditional Christmas theme by using reds, golds & greens (think pine garlands, oversized bows and glittering lights), remember the classics never go out of style.
