9 Tips To Get Your Home Ready For Christmas-Abstract House

Edited November 2023

Winter is one of our favourite seasons. Those crisp winter walks, outerwear and of course, top of the agenda is entertaining. Christmas is just around the corner, in fact, it’s only four weeks away. That means there isn't much time to get your home decorated and looking spectacular for those important get-togethers and holiday parties with family, friends and loved ones. If you aren’t sure how to make it happen, leave the details to us as our curators have put together nine easy-to-follow tips to beautifully style your home for the upcoming Christmas season.

1. Make An Entrance

Decluttering your entryway and making it more inviting is, of course, a given, but why not elevate your entrance hallway with a spectacular framed gallery wall. This striking framed gallery wall is certain to make an impression and make even the smallest hallways more cosy and inviting. Remember, first impressions count!

2. Host In Style With Mid Century Inspiration

If you'd love your guests to compliment you on your sense of style, choosing mid-century inspired pieces is a sure-fire hit when it comes to interiors. Mid-century designs craft areas for conversation, with lots of chairs for guests seated around coffee tables. And, what better way to spark conversation than with a beautiful one-of-a-kind masterpiece like the large abstract painting pictured by Omar Obaid.

3. Create A Focal Point

Accessorising spaces with sideboards and art can create a new focal point for an otherwise blank space, filling it with colour, light and depth. By adding a statement painting like the one-of-a-kind original painting shown, you can redefine a space and invite new memories and festive traditions with your guests.

4. Add Warmth Around Your Fireplace

5. Dress The Dinner Stage
