Just add texture (and warmth)
A great way to add festive cheer without going completely overboard with sparkly decorations is to introduce lots of sumptuous textures. Add depth to your living room by adding rich velvet cushions, plush comfy woven throws and super soft rugs to dress the floors.
Layer up the festive cosiness with soft-touch throws and plush cushions for fireside armchairs and cocoon yourself in warmth as you unwind after a long day. We recommend keeping additional throws close to hand in woven rattan baskets to allow your special guests and loved ones to snuggle up whilst watching Christmas films and sipping mulled wine.
Embrace rustic style
We all know the benefits of bringing the outdoors in, so sprinkle a little nature into your Christmas decorations this year. So this festive season, instead of reaching for your traditional glistening and sparkly baubles, embrace rustic and country-living inspired touches. Add wooden beaded garlands, macramé decorations and rattan pieces, as well as natural pampas grass and dried floral arrangements for another festive dimension this Christmas. Whilst small touches of warm metallic hues and shimmering accents help complete a contemporary rustic inspired space.
Mix and match metallic
An easy Christmas living room décor idea is to add a bit of glamour and sparkle through metallic finishing touches. Mixing metallics such as coppers, golds, silvers and rose golds help to create an eye-catching look, whilst adding a sense of luxury by elevating standard decorations.
Whether it's glistening baubles, mirrored tree toppers or copper finish pedestals (these are also perfect centrepieces!), playing with mixing textures has been a big trend this season. Plus, combining metallic decorations with natural materials, like traditional foliage or luxe faux furs, provides a stunning contrast.
Let it glow
Add a glow to your living room this Christmas with flickering candlelight to create ambience and add a festive warmth to your space all season long. Use ornamental candles like our artisanal stoneware candle holder, to add a calming warmth and envelop your home in ambient lighting.
Looking for something a little more whimsical? Our new Wooden Candle Holders provide a unique silhouette for your coffee tables or mantelpieces with its distinctive decorative display - just add tall sleek candle sticks to create a deeply rich and cosy space. Even a pared-back traditional room will come to life with a festive ambiance when dressed in glowing toffee and yellow gold.
Set up a temporary bar
Hosting this Christmas? Why not add a festive touch to your living room by creating a temporary bar - whether it's on an elegant sideboard or even on a cocktail trolley, you'll be the 'hostest with the mostest'. Plus, you might even be tempted to make it a permanent feature all year long.
An elegant sideboard is the perfect spot to serve drinks from, plus it's perfect for tucking away all manner of paraphernalia. Be sure to have a lamp or candles to create a pool of diffused light. If you're feeling a little more glamourous, we'd like to raise a toast to our Antique Mirrored Drinks Trolley - it ensures everyone's drink of choice is easily reachable at every occasion, whilst its antique shimmering design provides a timeless finishing touch, echoing the tones throughout the rest of your living room.
Decorate your mantelpiece
The living room is the most popular spot in the house for the Christmas tree, with its shimmering Christmas lights, tinsel, statement topper, your collection of Christmas ornaments, collected from over the years. But the tree doesn't always have to be in the living room, and there are other ways of making your space fully festive without a tree.
Your mantel piece or fireplace holds lots of holiday decorating magic possibilities. The mantelscaping trend offers a great excuse to get experimental with decorating – it's really about clever styling to make your fireplace a focal point for the room. Add classic stockings and Christmas garlands or drape festive foliage and layer in tea lights or fairy lights for an enchanting warm glow - then you've created the perfect entryway for Father Christmas. Bring in your favourite Christmas baubles and decorations to weave through the foliage and garlands for added sparkle and a one-of-a-kind layer of holiday charm.
