How to add festive decorations in every room of the house

Collaborative feature

Christmas is here again, bringing with it the dark nights, frosty mornings and frozen noses. Have you already decorated your home for Christmas? I bet your tree is up and the fairy lights are sparkling, am I right? But what about the other rooms in your home? Why not cultivate a cosy festive feeling in every room of your house? Don’t worry that Christmas is fast approaching, there’s still plenty of time! Here’s how to quickly transform every room to add a touch of winter cheer and welcome in readiness for the party season.

The Living Room

The staple of every home is the living room, the place where family come together and relax after a hard day out in the cold. This season, nothing’s more important than spending time with family and friends, sharing memories, and making plans to create new ones. Turn your living room into a cosy winter wonderland by shutting off your main light and instead adding lamps and candles to create a warm, cosy winter hue. Add a touch of character and colour with sparkling fairy lights; drape them around door frames and windows. Scatter cushions are usually reserved for the bedroom, but a host of new, mismatched cushions on the sofa can make it feel all the more snuggly. Festive scented candles are a must-have for any winter living room too.

The Kitchen

All good parties wind up in the kitchen, so don’t forget about it when you’re decorating your home this Christmas and New Year. Copper-coloured accessories are perfect this season, adding a touch of vintage warmth and cheer to kitchens. Hang them from the ceiling or the wall to add a rustic, country feel. Instead of serving drinks in glasses, serve hot drinks in festive-themed, mismatched mugs. Keep hot drinks constantly brewing in teapots with festive-themed tea cosies and use my coffee shop hacks recipes to make your favourite festive drinks at home for a fraction of the price.

The Bedroom

It goes without saying that we spend a significant amount of time cuddled up in our beds, fast asleep. This season, there are plenty of potential festive bedroom themes. Go for a glitzy and glamourous frozen wonderland theme with sparkling silver bedspreads and curtains from JD Williams, mirrored furniture, and a beautiful crystal-style chandelier. Or make your very own log-cabin with mismatched oak furniture and beautiful patchwork style bedding. For accessories, wooden ornaments and scented candles are a must. And don’t forget the cushions!festive bathroom touches accessories towels-3 festive bathroom touches accessories towels-10The Bathroom

Possibly the most ignored room in the house is the bathroom. Ocean themes prevail, but this winter, go for something different. Step away from blue and add coloured towels, and add candles around the bath for a truly sensual and relaxing bathroom. If you’d like to go further, why not look at warm colours on the walls and changing blinds / curtains to add a level of warmth to your bathroom.
