Christmas is an invitation to get creative with the styling in your home. You need not stick to the traditional red, gold and green theme however, nor do your decorations need to be tacky or too ‘Christmassy’ to achieve a beautiful effect. Below we explore three Christmas styling themes that will suit either a contemporary or classic home.
Elegant Christmas styling
The best way to achieve an elegant Christmas theme is to use metallics such as rose gold and silver in conjunction with one contrasting colour, perhaps black or navy. Richly layered textures in clusters should be found not only on your tree and dining table, but all over the house. Decorating the staircase is particularly effective – try unraveling a wreath and winding it down the banister. The fireplace also provides a perfect backdrop for elegant trimmings. Lots of lighting and candles should be evident and a blend of old and new decorations brings a classic elegance to a contemporary home. Don’t be afraid to go over the top on your Christmas table!
