It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And you know what that means – it’s time to deck your home with boughs of holly (or other festive decorations!). If you’re in need of some Christmas décor inspiration for your home, we’ve got you covered.
Here are some simple ways to add some holiday spirit to your home:
Whether you prefer to buy it, or DIY it, there’s no better way to announce the arrival of the silly season than by hanging a Christmas wreath on your front door. The possibilities are endless when it comes to finding (or creating) a wreath that matches your preferred aesthetic.
For something traditional, opting for lush greens with hints of red and gold works perfectly. If earthy and rustic is more your style, look for natural materials like twine and twigs – and even pine cones! And if you’re into something a bit more modern, why not experiment with non-traditional Christmas colours and incorporating baubles!
And to add the final flourish, wrap your wreath with a string of fairy lights to give off a magical glow!
O CHRISTMAS TREE
We’re all familiar with the Christmas tree that sits proudly in the family room – but what about framing your front door with a pair of evergreen trees? Placing a potted juniper or cypress bush on either side of your front door will definitely add to your home’s curb-side appeal. Or, if you’ve already got greenery sitting at the front of your home, why not add some festive flair by decorating with ribbons, baubles or lights?
LIGHT IT UP
There’s nothing more magical than a home decorated with twinkle lights. You can make your Christmas lights as understated or dramatic as you like! If you have columns or balustrades at the front of your home, wrapping them with a string of lights is great way to add some yuletide cheer, without being over the top. Displaying icicle lights in the front windows of your home is also a great way to add a little extra sparkle.
HOLLY, JOLLY BACKYARDS
If you’ll be enjoying time outdoors this Christmas, why not add some trees, twinkle lights and even festive statues to your backyard or suncourt areas? Arden Homes are known for their intelligently positioned suncourts that can be enjoyed all year round – especially in the Australian summer! Their large glass doors make them the perfect place to create a Christmas feature that can be enjoyed both inside and out!
So, what Christmas décor will your home be featuring this silly season?
