Discover how to bring an Instagram-worthy touch to your Christmas staircase decorations.
Rebecca Snowden, Interior Style Advisor at Furniture And Choice (FurnitureChoice.co.uk), shares 2 different ways to style a staircase for Christmas.
1. Sparkle with an elegant paper garland
“Dress up a staircase with stylish neutrals and luxe metallics instead of the traditional green and red palette,” Rebecca says. “If your staircase has wall panelling, paint it grey for a sophisticated touch.” Hang fresh greenery such as pine or eucalyptus to start then introduce texture with paper honeycomb balls in a mix of grey, white and brown. Choose honeycomb balls in different sizes and add gold stars into the mix for a chic, elegant feel. Top it off with gold or silver decorations such as modern wreaths or sparkly baubles.
2. Cosy up with a forest theme garland
Choose a forest green palette on the staircase walls for a cosy, natural feel. “If you have a small hallway, add depth and contrast to your space by painting your staircase a light green,” Rebecca advises. Pick a garland made from fresh foliage for an eco-friendly touch. Drape the garland along the bannister in a looping pattern along the staircase as it leads to the Christmas tree. For staircases without bannisters, hang the garland along the bottom of the spindles for a festive touch. String fairy lights through the garland for a sparkly, festive finish.
