Home decorating at Christmas

The room sets designed by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen this year at the Ideal Home Show at Christmas showed us how we can make our homes look festive without cluttering up with Christmas decorations. By working seasonal colours into your interior décor you can get a look that’s perfect for Christmas and also fabulous all year round. 

Purple is a luxurious colour that's perfect for the season of indulgence! Dress up a purple colour scheme with decorative homewares like cushions and throws in silver for a look that’s stylish, elegant and simply gorgeous. Or add romance to your interior by combining purple bedroom décor with bedding or curtains made from rich materials in dark hues. Complete the look with an ornate lampshade. The decorative elements won't have to be removed after Christmas because they look modern and sophisticated for all seasons. 


Red is so traditionally Christmassy, but doesn't have to be used to overdo a festive interior scheme. Here the red wallpaper is understated and with the rich red carpet and dark wood storage units makes the room feel warm and cosy. Perfect for cold Christmas nights!

The colour red doesn’t just look great in our homes over the festive period. Red is an exciting and vibrant colour that can be enjoyed all year round. If you're not brave enough to invest in a bold red statement piece of furniture look for smaller homewares such as such as beddingcushions and throwsUsed as an accent in a neutral colour scheme they’ll add an intense pop of colour that’s also romantic, passionate and beautiful. Adorn your home with red accessories and complete the look with finishing touches in gold or silver.
