Christmas is fast approaching and it looks likely that we will all be spending more of the festive period indoors this year. Why not take the opportunity to embrace a Christmas staycation and create a truly festive home?
We all know a seasonally trimmed Christmas tree will instantly transform a home into a winter wonderland, but what else can we do to create the perfect festive home?
Adding a few well chosen accessories here and there can be a simple and effective way to create a cosy and inviting space, which will make us more than happy to be staying at home this year.
Think rich hues, like jewel colours, or reds, warm browns, and ambers; soft furnishings with snuggly and tactile textures; subtle lighting to create a cheery yet comforting ambiance; and the smell of hot chocolate and spiced fragrances filling the air and soothing the soul.
Our Interiors website has a stylish collection of timeless leather accessories from Life of Riley, sumptuous faux fur throws from Helen Moore and tactile cushions from Zinc Textile: www.collierdobsoninteriors.com.
…or prepare cosy seating areas in which to sit back and enjoy a Christmas tipple (or two) with comfy leather seats, soft cushions and luxurious throws.
Brighten up the walls with some artwork featuring your favourite seasonal colours, or festive elements – like this characterful little robin, A Quick Hello by Aaminah Snowdon, Limited Edition Print, or this eye-catching ice skating scene, Skating in the Square by Jenni Murphy, Limited Edition Print, both available on our website.
As a perfect finishing touch to any festive décor, add candles to create warmth and atmosphere.
If this has inspired you to have a go at creating a fabulously festive home this year, pay both our Art and Interiors websites a visit for stunning artwork and beautifully crafted accessories:
