Get into the spirit of Christmas with inspired decorations
It’s that wonderful time of year again where we all get excited about decorating our homes ready to celebrate the festive season. Whether you go all out, or just have a beautiful Christmas tree, it’s fun to choose colour schemes or even a theme.
Obviously, the traditional red, green and gold is always a winner and looks stunningly festive.
In our house, this is our choice each year, although we do like to add a few new decorations to our tree every Christmas.
Classic decorations never fail to make your home feel warm, cosy and Christmassy.
Or do you prefer a more contemporary feel?
If you would like a more modern twist in place of the traditional theme, you could go with some brightly coloured baubles on your tree.
Choosing a white tree with splashes of colours such as pinks and greens or blues, greens and silvers are effective, fresh and fun.
Colourful decorations will certainly keep the Christmas season Merry & Bright.
Nature inspired Christmas
Bring a touch of nature into your home this year using natural textures, colours and objects.
You can add the more organic touch to your Christmas decorations by introducing things such as dried fruits, spices, twigs and pinecones.
A couple of years ago I decided to forgo my traditional theme and decorated my house the ‘Aussie Bush Christmas’ way.
I made all my decorations from the garden using pinecones, twigs and eucalyptus leaves. I created a small tree using branches and added fairy lights and some homemade decorations which I had made from felt.
A Winter Wonderland
While you can’t always have real snow on Christmas day (especially here in Australia), you can mimic the icy, cool colours of winter indoors by using a blue, silver and white colour scheme. Dec the halls with glittering trees and sparkling snowflakes. This theme will make your Christmas season shine with style.
Enjoy your Christmas decorating!
Christmas is all about getting together with family and friends, eating far too much delicious food and of course having fun watching the children get excited about Santa’s visit. Whatever theme or colour scheme you choose I’m sure it will help make your festive season a magical one.
