7 ways to style your home ready for a cosy Christmas

It’s time to dust off your baubles, untangle the fairy lights and prepare to deck the halls for the ultimate comfy Christmas. Whether you love traditional xmas decorations or prefer a more contemporary seasonal style, these 2022 winter décor ideas, will provide plenty of festive flair and transform your home into the cosiest grotto.

1. Red and green should always be seen

We all know the old adage, but that goes right out the window at Christmas. Embrace the cosycore aesthetic and choose the ultimate festive colour combination with bright Rudolph-nose-reds and verdant fir-tree greens. You can tone down the look by adding in a few natural shades too, or keep it kitsch with classic holiday brights. 

2. All about asymmetry

One huge Christmas décor trend for 2022 is asymmetrical garlands and mantlepiece embellishments. Avoid falling into the trap of making your living space too matchy-matchy and instead allow your decorations to be natural and free-flowing.

3. Scandi chic

Want to add a little hygge to your Christmas interiors? The Scandinavian philosophy of contentment has been around for a while, but it shows no signs of going anywhere – especially at Christmas time. 

To get the look, keep decorations simple, but choose ones that have been crafted with love and care, like our British-made blankets. Create cosy corners and snugs about your home with piles of wool throws and soft cushions. 

4. Merry and bright

If red and green is a little too subtle for you, why not go full rainbow? Show everyone the meaning of ‘Merry Christmas’ with a cheering pop of colour and cover your home in the brightest hues around. Our Rainbow Stripe Herringbone Throw is ideal for adding an instant splash of colour to plainer corners of your home.

5. Bring the outside in

One of the most traditional ways to decorate your home at Christmas time is by bringing evergreen foliage inside.

Most homes will have a tree – but don’t stop there. Weave winter foliage around the dining table, drape boughs from the staircase and create natural garlands for the mantelpiece. At the florist, ask for eucalyptus, box, ivy and holly or simply have a little forage around the garden for some pretty pieces. Herbs also make lovely additions to wreaths and displays, plus they add a fresh green scent to your space. Our new Special Edition Wildweave blankets are inspired by the subtle shades of nature and pair beautifully with this organic aesthetic.

6. White Christmas

Find it tricky to make your house look stylish at Christmas? Keep things simple and opt for classic white paper decorations and contemporary neutral accessories. Style alongside the natural textures of your tree, plus flickering white pillar candles and you’ll instantly have an unfussy cosy Christmas style. Soften the look with a variety of patterns and textures such as our Grey Waffle Throw and Silver Grey Signature Herringbone Throw.

7. Wreaths everywhere!

Thought a Christmas wreath was just for your front door? Think again!

Make lots of little wreaths and create festive displays over side tables and around your home, or make one large statement wreath to go above a fireplace or dining table. You could use natural greenery, dried flowers or baubles to create something magical to fit your scheme.
