Get Insta-worthy Christmas styling with a gorgeous mix of jewel tones and textured natural elements.
Rebecca Snowden, Interior Style Advisor at Furniture And Choice (FurnitureChoice.co.uk), shares 3 ways to decorate a modern home for a luxe and cosy Christmas.
1. Layer jewel tones for winter cosiness
Use colour as an easy and affordable way to add winter cosiness to your home this Christmas. “Paint the walls in a jewel tone like forest green,” suggests Rebecca. “This rich and bold shade also brings warmth and serenity to the holidays.” Create a relaxing space with a comfy beige fabric sofa layered with cushions in trending jewel tones like mustard yellow, burnt orange and ruby red. Add sparkle and sophistication with touches of gold, chrome and glass as luxurious accents.
“For an Insta-worthy hallway, decorate your staircase with a pine and eucalyptus garland for tone-on-tone forest greenery,” says Rebecca. “String twinkling fairy lights through the garland for dreamy Christmas vibes.”
2. Use natural elements for warmth
“Use natural elements instead of plastic wherever possible for an eco-friendly approach,” says Rebecca. “Opt for a real Christmas tree and real greenery – all of which look naturally great and feel more luxurious than artificial decorations.” Deck the tree with paper and rattan ornaments, topped with gold and silver baubles. Then set the scene for Christmas meals with a warm grey wood table and stylish velvet chairs, with real eucalyptus laid across your tablescape.
3. Choose luxe textures like velvet and faux fur
In the bedroom, wake up to the magic of Christmas with luxe textures and soft festive touches. Create an irresistibly cosy feel with a stylish velvet bed, layered with lush velvet cushions and a thick faux fur throw. “Decorate with a bushy garland made from natural greenery and hang up paper stars to capture the essence of the holidays,” says Rebecca.
