Try keeping your Christmas decorations in the same tone as your current home décor, but lift the existing palette with pops of fresh green or natural elements such as branches, pine cones etc. An abundance of warm glowing lights always adds a feeling of festive coziness – fairy lights can be used throughout the year in most other occasions so purchasing a few every now and then will help you to brighten up your home with an abundant glow over the Christmas period.

Create your own Christmas wreath or wall art with your own personal touch! All you need is some wire, branches, and outdoor greenery finds. Wire together branches and use little pieces of wire to join in the greenery. Add your wreath to your exterior door or make it a punch above your fireplace. Bring tiny touches of greenery wall art and make a vignette out of it by adding your existing Christmas décor with hints of natural pieces.

As a renter, I’m always looking for innovative, fun and thrifty ways to update the home. I love the use of the branch above the table in this rustic dining setting. Adorned with fairy lights and decorations, it’s a simple and achievable idea to create a beautiful design statement in any room. The neutral color palette gives it a contemporary Scandinavian feel – just showing that you don’t have to stick to reds and greens for a Christmas scheme and that winter whites work just as well!

If you have faux fur or sheepskin or would like to invest into a faux fur throw – It really warms up a space sitting beside your Christmas tree or on a chair next to it. If you love real fur, peruse consignment and thrift stores, which seem to be stuffed with discarded fur coats and stoles that can be turned into throws, pillows and even small rugs!
