It's that time of year where our thoughts are firmly set on Christmas and we dust down our decorations to bring the festive spirit into our home! Do you fancy a bit of a revamp and update of your decorations this year? If so, we have some great suggestions for you that we hope will help you decide on the right theme for your home.
3 Stylish looks for Christmas 2023
1. Shimmer and gold
This is always a good choice at Christmas and as it is such a popular theme right now, there are plenty of gorgeous options out there in the shops and online. Gold is sleek and sophisticated allowing you to use minimalist pieces that blend with your existing decor.....the colour on its own screams Christmas! We think this look is perfect for a modern home that has an industrial element. We love the contrast that is created when you blend gold decorations with an industrial dining table, the gold accessories look wonderful against the reclaimed wood dining table top.

2. Rustic & Recycled
The rustic look continues to be as popular as ever and is the perfect Christmas theme for a country cottage or farmhouse. From a real Christmas tree to twig wreaths with pine cones, dried orange slices and dried flowers, there really is so much scope when it comes to this look. This theme completely embraces eco-friendly Christmas decorations and you can either buy new rustic accessories or make them yourself.
Treat yourself, or a friend to these fantastic scalloped star decorations, by Plant a Bloomer. When Christmas is over the stars can be planted outdoors and will grow into wildflowers. We also love this embroidery eco-friendly kraft paper bunting in the shape of little Christmas trees by Leah Nikolaou. During the countdown to Christmas you hand embroider a bauble onto the tree, keep this hanging above a wooden side table in your living room so you can admire your handiwork!

This is definitely the look for a very modern and minimalist house or flat. Mixing black or navy with white will give your room an instant sleek and crisp look. Black and navy are not colours we generally associate with Christmas but it certainly looks great when done right. The Standford Industrial Dining Table and the rustic Standford Reclaimed Wood Dining Chairs suit this colour scheme perfectly.
To bring a monochrome Christmas into other areas of your home accessorise with black and white decorations, such as candles, pine cones and fairy lights. We love these black and white modular candle sets from Concrete & Wax to bring some drama and ambience to your festive scene.
