Festive Hallway Inspiration

@mrs_roobottom_home certainly knows how to transform her glamorous abode into a winter wonderland. Her hallway, complete with the elegant Shay tall bookcase, is Santa-ready; its walls and floors adorned with oversized baubles, globe-sized fairy lights and plenty of unique  Christmas decorations. We love the snow-like effect achieved by the faux fur rug, too.

Hayley (@haylc_) shows us how versatile our furniture can be, especially at this time of year. Our Brooklyn small bookcase acts as a console table in the hallway; its modern, minimalist frame making it perfect for Christmas statuettes and strings of fairy lights, giving guests a warm, festive welcome as they enter the home for a season of socialising.

Cosy Christmas Living Room

The little bursts of colour that @littlehouseinlondon has added to her living room brighten up the space and give it a playful, yet cosy atmosphere. Instead of traditional Christmas colours, she’s added festive spirit with golden fairy lights and paper decorations. Our St. Ives nest of tables make the perfect base to rest your additional living room decorations on.

The light wood of our natural oak Cascade range looks great with @attheisles nordic style Christmas decorations. Our drinks cabinet and coffee table provide room for clutter, leaving plenty of room for more decorations (or a bigger tree?). Frosted pine cones and festive cushions display the more subtle look you can achieve when decorating your home this Christmas.

A big feature piece like our Albani wall clock is the perfect way to decorate an otherwise empty wall, drawing your guests attention without being overbearing. @thegosfordmama’s choice of slim Christmas tree shows what you can achieve when you’ve got a small space to work with, with the frosted tips of the branches fitting in perfectly with the grey colour scheme. Our Gainsborough footstool provides a stylish feature for you to hide away and presents or mess. 

purple themed living room with colourful christmas decorations

Feeling quirky this Christmas? @hardcastletowers is breaking from tradition with her purple Christmas decorations, proving how straying from the standard red gold and green can have a powerful and still very festive effect. Our Boston chest of drawers is the perfect addition to the room, its bold design standing out even in a room with such a strong style of its own. 

Christmas Dining Room Ideas

@32.redwood has created a winter wonderland with her decorations, turning her Kemble dresser into a Christmas display. Each section has a merry addition, ranging from a cuddly reindeer to rustic bells. The garland, adorned with a golden bow and winter berries, ties the whole thing together to create a very fabulously festive Christmas visual.

We love the silver-grey colour scheme of @home_at_87b’s dining room. The texture of our truffle fabric Dorset dining chairs combined with the silver leaf decoration and fur rug gives the room depth and character. Silver is the perfect Christmas colour scheme for modern homes or rooms with grey furniture or feature walls.

@basnet_raisu’s elegant Christmas dinner decorations sit perfectly on top of our Kemble dining table. The natural touch of the scattered pine cones and dark green wreath provide a stark contrast to the smooth sheen of the silver Christmas crackers and stylish tableware. This shows exactly what you can achieve with a minimal Nordic-style approach to decorating.

Christmas Bedroom Decor

Christmas decorations don’t have to be confined to the communal areas of the house, @selinalake shows just how cosy a festive bedroom can be, with deep red covers and a chunky knitted throw. The dark leafy green of her bedside foliage combines beautifully with the deep brown of our rustic solid oak bed frame. Again, festive cushions make the perfect addition to your home this year.
