Moretti Blog • December 06, 2017
t’s Christmas season! Time to decorate your home for Christmas with warm fairy lights, amazing trees and welcoming “Christmassy” accessories…but what are the focal points of the house to decorate so to enhance them but also not to overwhelm the home with too many decorations?
We can definitely start from the front door, so to greet family and friends with a festive-looking entrance. You could use the traditional wreath with a touch of red or decorate with ribbons and for a more rustic look a tree branches. Do not forget though that the front door decoration style that you choose it needs to be an introduction to the style that you are creating inside, so to create a flow between the inside and the outside.
If you are lucky enough to have a fireplace you can appreciate its versatility during holiday seasons and not just… Use candles, fresh fir garland, snow globes and the traditional stocking to decorate it. It could become a very interesting focal point and with the warmth of the fire can shows the real Christmas spirit.
Don’t forget the windows or windows sills. Hang balls, wreaths or display your favourite Christmas decorations but keep it simple: it needs to be festive but not overwhelming.
Use accessories like cushions, fairy lights, throws and candles with winter scent to complete the Christmas style.
The essential aspect is to add personality and experiment with colours and materials.
