Deck the halls, door, mantelpiece and more! Whether you love traditional Christmas room decorations or prefer contemporary style, these festive fixes will bring a touch of magic to your home

Decorate your door

Mark the start of the season and give guests a warm welcome by hanging a wreath on your front door, whether you opt for something traditional with festive foliage and bright red berries, or a contemporary light-up wire star wreath. Struggling for Christmas decoration ideas? Garlands of winter greenery, potted trees and hurricane lanterns will add to the festive effect. Not just for doors, wreaths also look great on walls. Try hanging one above the mantelpiece or in a guest bedroom for an extra seasonal flourish. Not decided on your tree or table theme?

Prep for Christmas

Decorate with scent

Fragrance is the quickest and easiest way to make your home feel festive. Scent of Christmas combines notes of mandarin, cinnamon and clove, while Frankincense & Myrrh blends frankincense, myrrh, orange and clove. Our new Christmas scent, Retreat – part of our wellbeing-boosting Apothecary range – combines Siberian Fir, eucalyptus and Scots pine to evoke the scent of a wintry log cabin. Place a reed diffuser in the hallway for a fragrant welcome and burn candles in the living room to create a cosy atmosphere.

Think beyond the tree

Why should the tree get all the festive fun? String up a selection of Christmas baubles and foliage, alternating between the two, to create a stylish hanging wall decoration. Turn a mantelpiece, cupboard top or shelf into a festive focal point. Bring the outside in with a vase full of seasonal greenery and red berries. Line up adorable felt robins, nutcracker soldiers and snow-covered miniature Christmas trees to tap into childhood nostalgia, then add light-up decorations for a warm and cosy glow.

Create a snug sanctuary

Give your soft furnishings a festive switch-up and add to the cosiness factor of your home with cushions and throws in tactile textures and seasonal shades, from velvet cushions featuring embroidered robins to a faux-fur-trimmed tartan throw. Choose pieces in complementary colours for a put-together look. Christmas decorating tends to focus on the living room, but there’s no reason you can’t add a festive touch to bedrooms, too. Try a bedding set with a seasonal print, add a festive pillow and create a magical glow with light-up decorations.
