This Christmas - Decorate Like a Designer
Christmas doesn’t have to be tacky, decorate like a designer. That’s a fact. With the right inspiration and design you can turn your decoration from bleak to chic! It’s really quite simple. Sit back, put on some Bing Crosby, pour a tall glass of merlot and step into character, this year, you’re doing Christmas with style.
Injecting some style into your decorating can be as simple as doing a little less. Christmas Tree’s have a habit of becoming cluttered, as well as homes. budding decorators get far too carried away with all the cheer and before you know it your tree, and home, looks busier than santa’s grotto on Christmas eve. Here are our top tips to keep things in vogue this year.
Choose a colour scheme and stick to it. Take a long look at the room you’ve chosen for your tree and come to a decision about what colour pallet would best suit. Keep it simple with all green, red & gold, red & silver, pink & white or whatever combination fits. Once you’ve got this it needs to be gospel, don’t stray from scheme no matter how tempting! Stay true and you’re already closer to a sleeker looking Christmas.
So you’ve got the colours, now it’s time to think about the theme. Are you going traditional? Classic decorations always associated with Christmas. Or are you going to shake things up? Here’s where a little planning comes in… The options are endless but you have to choose what works for you!
Selecting the perfect tree will always help keep your Christmas in vogue. Fuller, natural trees are the go to. You want big, green and beautiful. Keep this in mind when you’re visiting one of our stores, we’re always here to help.
The Rest of the Room
Now, this is the part so many people forget. Decorating doesn’t stop at the tree. Oh no, that’s just the beginning. Your theme and colour scheme need to apply to the whole room. If your room works hand in hand with the tree any guests will definitely sit up and take notice. Try an indoor wreath as a centrepiece!
This year you’re going to be the envy of everyone. It takes a little planning but if you follow the simple steps above you’ll be well on your way to a designer Christmas look.
