This year, take some time to experiment with your festive decor with our top unique ways to decorate for the Holidays. By incorporating eye catching ceiling adornments and lighting with stunning garlands and ornaments, you can create an exceptional festive atmosphere. Whether you are looking to refresh existing Holidays decorations or start afresh with a new style, the LuxPad explores ways to take advantage of unused space, spread some Holiday spirit throughout the entire house and uniquely decorate your home for the Holiday season.
Adorn your Window with Festive Accessories
An easy way to bring Holiday charm into the home is to deck out your windows. Star shaped pieces are perfect for adding a subtle festive touch to your windows and when combined with rustic materials such as pinecones, metals and glass they bring a Nordic charm that is suitable for a variety of interiors. Make sure you include your favourite candles or lights to really make your windows twinkle come night-time.
Hang Decorations From Your Ceiling
Create a statement table setting by adorning your ceiling with decorations. Ideal for hanging over the dining table, you can use your favourite Holiday pieces and nestle lights throughout to create an atmospheric entertaining setting. For a truly rustic experience, use earthy tones and natural materials such as branches and pinecones with warm glowing lights, or for a more elegant look, fill with baubles and ornaments in complementing tones to your dining setting.
Dress Up Your Fireplace for the Holidays
The fireplace isn’t just for hanging your stocking. Take advantage of the space by creating a unique display with quirky ornaments and fun accessories. For alcoves, fill vases with colourful baubles and lights to mimic firelight and bring a festive touch to empty spaces.
Fill Bowls with Decorations
Bring a festive touch to your coffee table or side space by filling bowls with ornamental decorations. Choose bowls in decadent tones as your base colour and fill with decorations in complementing tones and combine different textures and styles. You can also bring trend driven colours into your home, this year key colour themes are soft greens and blush pinks with gold and opulent jewel like tones.
Impress Guests With a Festive Dining Setting
Make your dining setting the centre of attention by bringing festive decorations to the table. Choose baubles and ornaments that complement your existing tableware and colour theme or completely start from scratch with trend driven jewel tones or pastels. You can also delight guests with a thoughtful party favour by using ornaments that are personalised to each guest.
Deck the Walls
Take advantage of an empty wall space with fun ornaments and unique decorations. For a contemporary look choose bright colours and show stopping accessories from cupcakes and candy apples to flamingos and cacti. If you are after something a little more traditional, you can pick cabin inspired decorations and rustic accessories.
Update a Shelf or Mantelpiece for the Season
Not just for watchful elves, you can give a shelf or mantelpiece a festive facelift. Carefully chosen pieces will create an eclectic collection, begin with choosing a base colour and then complement with harmonious tones that can be spread across the space. Combine different shapes, sizes and styles to add interest and include lights to illuminate any room during darker evenings.
Don't Forget Your Banisters
Ensure that the festive cheer spreads across your home by including your banisters in your festive decorating. Ideal for greeting guests, you can create a truly welcoming atmosphere by wrapping garlands nestled with lights around the frame. For a contemporary look, adorn your garland with rustic ornaments and conversational accessories or go for a timeless finish with twinkling lights and metallic accessories.
