Contemporary Christmas Decor For Your Home

Tis’ the season to start decorating the home for the festive period ahead, and this year we believe there’s scope to go bigger and better than any year before when it comes to elegant Christmas decor. This doesn’t necessarily mean turning your home into The North Pole, instead we recommend you take a more luxe approach.

Make your table settings an event, add festive accents onto household items, find the perfect wreath to welcome visitors to your doorstep. Take inspiration from our edit to make your home a Christmas haven.

Wonderful Door Wreaths

Whether you prefer to hang a wreath on your front door for all to see, keep it indoors; or perhaps even both, your festive space is elevated in seconds. You could always try your hand at wreath making, however if you’re not so crafty it may be easier to just buy one from a brand like Gisela Graham.

Whether you prefer a traditional red and green style, or prefer a more contemporary take to fit into the aesthetic of your home when it comes to your Christmas wreath ideas – that’s down to you. Some people keep wreaths up in their house all year-round, so if that’s your intention, go for a chic style like our gold and glittery wreath, which you can enjoy over all 12 months.

Whether in clothing or homeware, Scandi Christmas decorations are seriously in. When it comes to Christmas decorations, it adds a rustic, shabby chic edge to the home. Our Rustic Home Sale by The Satchville Gift Company has plenty of pieces on offer to fit the brief, but we have some own tips up our sleeve.

Invest in a set of wicker baskets for a simple upgrade, then add some logs in for a rugged effect. We love a display stand (if not only to justify our addiction of buying plants), but a more rough and ready style can be draped with lights or tinsel during Christmas. A simple tea light holder looks great on the sideboard, drawers, or even on the table itself for Christmas Dinner.

Set of 3 Greywashed Willow Baskets – £45

Decorative Wall Mirrors

Whilst you may not immediately associate a mirror with Christmas decorations, with the right styling you can actually make it the focal point of the room. Gallery Mirrors are a great example of that, a decadent style which looks great in any area of the house. When it comes to December, add some festive details to your mirror by draping some lights all around – the more the better. Plus, it improves the lighting for your mirror selfies.

Candles to Covet

It wouldn’t be Christmas without candles now – would it? With Christingle services cancelled this year, we’ll have to get our fill of light closer to home. Showcase your candles in the highest of style with a decadent candle holder. Whether you prefer an antique-style thin holder or a more contemporary take, they look great on top of the sideboard as a considered detail. Feel wary about flames around the kids or prefer a mock style? That’s OK, we’ve got those on offer too.
