Try these easy ways to bring a touch of magic to every room, from decorating inspiration to quick festive fixes
First, find a look you love. Whether you’re a fan of glamorous metallic baubles, traditional cheery reds, cute characters or something Scandi-inspired, take a bit of time to picture how you’d like your home to look. Find some inspiration to get you started in our edit of tree decorating ideas.
When it comes to decorating the tree, make it a celebration in itself. Play your favourite festive tunes, make mulled wine or cider, or get the family involved and hang homemade decorations, whether it’s for Thanksgiving or Christmas Day. Then put on a fabulously festive sweater or PJs and snuggle up to watch a festive film in your new seasonal surroundings.
Scent is a powerful mood-changer – and the quickest, easiest way to make your home feel festive. Burn scented candles in your kitchen or dining room to disguise meaty cooking smells, or get the family baking! From cakes to homemade decorations, fill your home with the sweet smells of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, clementine and brown sugar. When it comes to Thanksgiving, the aromas of sweet potatoes, marshmallows and, of course, pumpkin pie are sure to bring the festive spirit home.
Mulled wine is a fast – and delicious – way to fill your home with seasonal scent. Make your own with red wine, cinnamon and an orange spiked with cloves, or try the same infusions with apple cider.
On chilly winter nights, you want to come home to somewhere warm and snug. Have throws and cushions at the ready in a mix of soft, plush textures like velvet, chenille and faux fur. Stick to colours that complement each other – like shades of grey with cream – for a put-together look.
Christmas decorating tends to focus on the living room, but there’s no reason you can’t branch out into your bedroom. Try a bedding set with a subtle seasonal print, then add a magical glow with string lights draped over a mirror or around a window. You’ll create a snug sanctuary where you can retreat from the season’s social whirl but still feel festive – or a welcoming space for guests.
