Deck the halls with boughs of holly and why not add a touch of the Christmas classic, tinsel! That’s right, tis the season to feel festive and go all out with decorations, adding a bit of sparkle and Christmas cheer to your home.
There are so many themes and bauble choices, the decorating possibilities are endless. If you’re already planning what you want to do next year or have left it a little bit last minute and not sure what to choose, take a look at our favourite festive décor ideas.
All out Classic American
Red and green should never be seen – Christmas is the exception of course! For your traditional American holiday theme, think Home Alone and Miracle on 34th Street. Full stockings above a toasty fireplace, vibrant decorative fir trees, mistletoe and holly. Add a little bit of embellishment with some gold baubles and fairy lights for warmth and dot some snowflake or pinecone accessories around the room and windows for an added wintry touch.
Minimal and Classic
If you prefer delicate pieces and want to keep it muted and classic, keep it simple and focus on a minimal colour scheme and soft hues. White and silver work perfectly with our Kemble range. Small metallic trinkets on the table or tie red ribbons around your vases and candles as a subtle way of sprinkling a bit of shine and shimmer to your merry home.
If you’re not enthused by the idea of tinsel, create your own eucalyptus garland to frame your furniture or drape around your banister with fairy lights. Cushion covers are also a great way to incorporate a bit of Christmas cheer to your space. White is a great blank canvas and will go with pretty much everything so this type of cover will not only work for Christmas but will also work all year round (less to put away in the New Year!).
Fancy trying something a bit different? Accessorise your home this Christmas with a modern twist. To achieve this look, make it glitzy but muted with a few interesting pieces. Whether you’re decorating on top of wooden furniture or hanging branches from the ceiling, elements of nature are essential to a rustic look. Go for wooden place settings and add sprigs of fir and pine to your centre pieces. Infuse a touch of luxe with hints of metallic, pewter tones or velvet and adorn a pair of antlers with some festive glitz.
Using metallic photo frames is a great multi-purpose way to do this. Gold or silver frames are a classic in any home and you can swap the prints inside to suit whatever season.

Sophisticated and Dramatic
The key to a dramatic look is the contrast between dark and bright. Pair rich navy hues and charcoal greys with flecks of gold or silver. Deck the halls (and other rooms of course) with clusters of candles or fairy lights dotted around your space. For this look you can also create dramatic centre pieces with cut glass candle holders or chandelier style ornaments. Perfect for a modern and glamourous Christmas.
So whether you’re a dramatic decorator or a classic Christmas connoisseur, choose your favourite interior inspiration and have fun with it (it only happens once a year after all) so that your home is decorated just the way you want.
