1. Start with a Colour Scheme that Ties Your Room Together

What’s more elegant than white and gold? What says ‘classic Christmas’ better than red and green? When you have a colour scheme for your holiday decor, everything pulls together into one cohesive look. Check out this year’s new holiday trends for inspiration: Snowed In, First Frost, and Reindeer Games. When in doubt, you can always create a clean, chic look with white as your base to DIY own winter wonderland.

2. Use Glass & Silver Accents to Give Your Home Glitz & Glamour

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree is easy! Use our Christmas Tree Buying Guide to choose your artificial or fresh evergreen, then roll up your sleeves to add all the trimmings. Use glass or silver Christmas ornaments that have glimmering, icy details to give your tree an eye-catching profile. 

Don’t stop with the tree! You can add silver and glass accents around your house in unique ways. Place some silver ornaments around candle holders or set a glowing lantern by the fireside. 

3. Juxtapose Matching Tableware with a Bold Centrepiece

Indulge your appetite for a stylish Christmas dinner! Spread out your place settings with coordinated tableware and accessories for a polished look, then add in a lively Yuletide centerpiece that’s a feast for the eyes. A wood finished resin fox adds a touch of rustic, cottage vibes while chic candle holders can make your table feel like a fine dining restaurant. 


4. Weave in Natural Elements for Rugged Elegance

Add a dash of fresh, romantic greenery, inside the home and out! 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. Set the Scene with Santa's Village

Santa’s village is a charming decoration that the whole family can enjoy! Get the kids involved and create a festive winter wonderland. Add a train station, windmill, ferris wheel, and antique shops for the perfect Christmas statement piece.   


6. Revel in Kitschy Cool that Sparks Your Childhood Nostalgia

Have a holly jolly Christmas for the kids, or the kid in you! Collect colourful knick-knacks and playful decorations that are guaranteed to spread some holiday cheer. Stay warm with reversible reindeer pillows and blankets and remember to leave milk and cookies for Santa in his own cool cookie jar and plate. It’s the best way to let the big guy know you’re thinking of him an ensure you’re getting something good under the tree!

7. Set up Insta-Worthy "Shelfies" with the Right Props

Do it for the 'gram! Move aside that elf and stage a holiday tableau with tabletop trees, nostalgic seasonal signs, and firs. Your snaps will be hotter than chestnuts roasting on an open fire. #Christmas


8. Make Your Home Merry & Bright with Christmas Lights

Make your home merry and bright this season with string lights! Add them to your front porch, roof, windows, trees, and more! Greet carolers with multi-coloured string lights paired with pathway lights to lead the way to your festive door. Don’t forget about indoors! String lights around your tree, mantle, bookshelves, and more for an extra festive style. Learn more in our Christmas Lights Buying Guide. 


9. Keep Things Cozy with Pillows & Throw Blankets

Don’t let the chilly weather get you down! Cozy up to your favourite person with watercolour pillows and throw blankets. These are sure to keep you nice and toasty on those cold winter nights. They’re perfect for relaxing in front of the fireplace (real or otherwise) with a cup of hot chocolate! 


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, you can layer different types of light throughout your house to create a magical atmosphere. With the right kind of lighting, you can have yourself a merry little Christmas!
