3. Juxtapose matching tableware with a bold centerpiece

Indulge your appetite for style and hearty Christmas dinners. If you’ve already picked a colour scheme, spread out your place settings with tableware and accessories that seamlessly coordinate together. Then throw in a lively Yuletide centerpiece that’s a feast for the eyes, from gold acorns to rustic birch candles.

 4. Weave in natural elements for rugged elegance.

Add a dash of fresh, romantic greenery that stirs up memories of annual traditions and simpler times. Share a kiss under the mistletoe or hang a wreath on your doorstep with boughs of holly. You’ll find it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas when the garlands are out.

5. Dress up high traffic areas at home for low effort, maximum impact

Admit it: Spreading the spirit of the season throughout your home is tiring. Save some time by decorating one or two of the most frequented areas beyond the living room like the kitchen, entryway and staircase. Bonus: You’ll have less to take down when the season is over!

8. Avoid unwanted tangles and frozen fingers with outdoor projection lights

Snow joke — putting up Christmas lights in the dead of winter can be a pain. Greet Christmas carolers with projection lights that cast shadows, patterns and swirls on your house for a captivating spectacle outdoors.

9. Decorate unexpected objects of interest to show off your signature style

When you got it, flaunt it! Hanging ornaments on a chandelier walks a fine line between madness and genius. Add a personal touch to your Christmas decorations by embellishing ordinary fixtures to make them new again. Ribbons, garlands or tinsel, there are plenty of tools at your disposal to mix it up!

10. Let there be lots of light, everywhere.

Illuminating your home for the holidays is (literally) brilliant. From softly glowing candles to radiant string lights, layer different types of light to create a magical atmosphere. With the right kind of lighting, you can have yourself a merry little Christmas.
