CHRISTMAS DECORATING THREE WAYS

By Mirelle Macdonald

Christmas; it’s the most wonderful time of year, not just because it’s your one opportunity to run rampant decorating your home…and eating all the food, naturally. But because red, green and gold has always been the waving banner of the festive season, that doesn’t mean you can’t forge your own decorating trail and still call it merry.

If you’re ready to graduate from dated baubles, half-blown seed lights and tinsel shedding everywhere, then be sure to have a look-see at our favourite Christmas décor ideas. They’re certain to get attention from your Christmas guests – for all the right reasons.

FRENCH PROVINCIAL CHRISTMAS

In this elegant take on tradition, keeping your palette subdued is key. Avoid strong Christmas colours by wrapping boxes in simple brown paper and decorate your tree in a monochrome or soft grey look. A decorative rug is an essential touch for when you’re huddled on the floor passing gifts.

VINTAGE CHRISTMAS

Take a stroll down memory lane with decorations that emphasise antique silhouettes, time-worn textures and handspun charm. With its inherent sense of nostalgia, we can’t think of a better look for bringing friends and family together. Vintage Christmas is especially suited to a more traditional colour scheme of forest green, red and gold, but feel free to experiment with steely greys and creamy whites for an updated look.

SEASIDE CHRISTMAS

Snow vs sand. Yule log vs driftwood. Pine tree vs palm tree. As far as we’re concerned, the seaside is the southern hemisphere’s answer to a traditional White Christmas. Get the look with sun-bleached timber and weathered whites and opt for a contemporary tree like a timber cut-out or driftwood style to give your space a fresh and natural feel.
