Christmas is just around the corner, and the Conroy Brook team have all been looking for ways that we can ready our homes for the festivities and create a warm and welcoming environment for family and friends.
So to help you inject some festive cheer into your interiors this year, here are some of our favourite ways to decorate your home for Christmas.
Take inspiration from nature
Looking beyond the tree to bring nature into your home this Christmas can create an elegant but still homely atmosphere.
Dressing mantels and banisters with evergreen garlands and winterberry is a simple way to add life to the room while maintaining a rustic look, while displaying a basket or vase filled with branches and pinecones is a simple way to bring the charm of wintery woodlands indoors. And incorporating citrus fruits such as oranges and lemons is a great way to brighten up your decor while still giving a festive feel.
Welcoming entrance hallways
With guests coming and going throughout the festive season, extending your decorations to the entrance and hallway of your home will kick start the festivities and ensure a welcoming atmosphere.
A side table adorned with twinkling lights, cinnamon scented candles and bauble filled vases will give your guests a warm welcome the moment they step through the door, while a pine and eucalyptus wreath hanging on your front door is undeniably festive.
Create a stunning centrepiece
The dining room is the heart of many of our homes at Christmas, so creating a beautiful centrepiece is a fantastic way to make an impact and welcome your family to the table.
Starting with a table runner as a base, you can then build up your centrepiece using small decorative items such as foliage with pine cones, fine wire fairy lights and tea lights for a more traditional look, or incorporate flowers for a fresher, more contemporary design.
Decorating for Christmas can transform your home into a calming winter retreat. But if you’re still searching for the perfect home, take a look at our upcoming new homes in Yorkshire. Or if you have any questions about our developments, please get in touch.
