Winter is well and truly on its way. With Christmas fast approaching, it’s a great time to start planning your festive decor. I love Christmas as it’s a great time to have some fun with your home styling. Here are my top winter styling tips:


Ambience is everything in Winter. With the shorter days and less light, it’s so important to create a warm and cosy atmosphere. I suggest turning off those bright ceiling lights and using lamps and fairy lights instead. Candles are the perfect addition especially scented ones. Nothing beats smelling cinnamon and vanilla scents around Christmas.



Using a mix of textures really transforms any room. Think cosy, rich materials like velvet, wool and chunky knits. Adding in faux fur can really enhance a winter festive look. You don’t need to change the furniture in your house, just adding cushions and throws really makes a difference.


Whether you decide to pick just one colour or go for the rainbow, it’s a good idea to plan your colour theme. I love to use the same colour throughout my decor, Christmas tree, wrapping and table decoration to bring it all together.  Don’t be afraid to use dark, rich colours, it creates a lovely, cosy atmosphere. Have you heard about the rainbow tree trend that is happening this year, will you be trying it? Check it out here.
