Your sitting room, which is basically your living room, takes the lead when it comes to bedazzling your house with the magic of Christmas; red, gold, white, and green are honoured guests. Put up a tall Christmas tree in a corner and hang Christmas stockings above your fireplace. Add a few reindeer and some small flocked Christmas trees or plants on your furniture and walls to create the perfect look. 

2. Spice up your kitchen with your best Christmas décor

Your kitchen deserves a holiday makeover! Pin a few wreaths to your walls and above the countertop, add a small Christmas tree recalling your kitchen’s colour palette and string lights. This kitchen will inspire your holiday meal prep sesh, guaranteed. 

3. Design a Christmas-themed reading nook

For the bookworms, is there anything better than reading a good book while lounging in a Santa Claus-approved nook?

Set up a comfortable armchair near the Christmas tree and add a throw pillow and a big plush blanket over it. All that's left to do is light a few candles and your reading nook is book-ready.

4. Decorate your bedroom with evergreens

Who hasn’t dreamt about waking up in a literal Christmas wonderland? Opt for a touch of elegance with a lavishly decorated big fir tree, one adorned with assorted ornaments featuring the colour palette of your choosing for a warm and festive flair. Try your hand at using garlands creatively, hang them on walls to further enhance the festive vibe you have going on. You can also hang a wreath above your headboard. 

5. Don’t forget about your front door!

The magic of Christmas can’t be limited to the inside of your house. Your front door also deserves special attention. Here’s a front door metamorphosized into a literal snowscape painting:

  • pine garlands; 

  • red and white Christmas ornaments

  • stately Christmas wreaths.

Porch-wise, carefully set up a few pine trees and lanterns to add a bit of magic to it all.

6. Light up your house and yard

Delight your neighbourhood by lighting up your front yard and house's façade. Bring the front of your house to life with symbolic and brightly lit figurines like a reindeer, snowman, and candy cane. Let this idea guide you by setting up light-filled decorations along your walkway leading up to your front door. By doing so, you’re basically creating a sparkly invitation for your guests. Add more magic to the whole by lighting up the trees around your yard. 

7. Adorn your dining room table with evergreen branches

No need to wait for D-Day to set up your Christmas tablescape. This beautifully designed table showcases a delicate disposition between the evergreen branches as a centrepiece, harmoniously complemented with unevenly placed candlesticks. The Christmas tree, decorated with similar colours as the tablescape, adds a presence to the whole, creating a perfect visual synergy.

8. Treat yourself to a snow-covered bedroom

Here’s another shot at festively decorating your bedroom. However, this time around, it’s a completely different ball game, entirely separate from the one previously depicted. Evidently, this bedroom embodies a genuine snow-covered landscape. It’s completely white and creates the perfect pure and wintery look. The tree, entirely flocked with a thin layer of artificial snow, evokes the magic of an enchanted Christmas. All-white Christmas stars and wreaths add a subtle touch to this snowscape. String lights lining the headboard bring a softness, and magical glow, to the room. 

9. Illuminate your living room with a subtle light show

Light up your living room with fairy lights and a cozy fireplace. This look showcases a living room bathing in sparkling Christmas tree lights, twinkling lights, and a beautiful fire blazing in the fireplace. The hanging Christmas stockings are perfectly in tune with the inspired theme. Adjacent to the Christmas tree, a wooden rocking chair adds a rustic flair, creating an inviting and relaxing corner. Wisely using the light contributes to making the room even more magical. 

10. Entertwine garlands around your railing

Our last tip: end with a bang by wrapping fairy lights around your railing. Transform your staircase by adding beautiful Christmas tree garlands around your balusters. As depicted, the magic of Christmas is heightened by the presence of string lights loosely intertwined around the handrail, thereby adding another fairy-like touch.
