Christmas is fast approaching, and it’s time to start thinking about putting up decorations and buying gifts. We always love finding new inspiration when it comes to designing our seasonal interiors. Here are some of our top inspirational decoration tips to help you out this Christmas. To make things even easier, we’ve included links to some of the best sites.
Pick a color scheme
When choosing your decorations, it’s always best to choose a color scheme, which is then used on both your tree and your interior decorations. Doing this makes everything come together better, and gives your house a more refined look. Our favorite color scheme is snow white and deep red because this creates a Christmassy feeling and ties in nicely with the tree. Ikea and Souq have got you covered with some great seasonal accessories, many of which are currently on sale.
Do it yourself
If you’re into arts and crafts there’s always the option of making your own decorations. It’s incredibly easy to make some garlands and tree decorations out of crafting paper, and not only do they give you something to be proud of, the right designs can give your tree an elegant, classical style. While many of our sites will have all the supplies you’d need to make stunning Christmas decorations, Creative Minds is an excellent choice because they have such a wide selection.
Get the whole family involved
If you do decide to make your own decorations, then it can be a great idea to get the kids involved too. Not only will it help to keep them busy, putting up their decorations will give your interior a much more personal feel, and you can always keep them for next year.
Keep it simple
When it comes to Christmas decorations, less is definitely more. There’s nothing worse than an over-decorated tree, so make sure you keep things restrained for a much more refined look. This is why a simple color scheme helps because it stops everything from becoming too busy.
Try baking some decorations
There are plenty of traditional foods eaten at Christmas, but one of the most famous is gingerbread. It’s a great choice because it’s easy to bake and will last for weeks (or months) without going stale. Making decorations out of gingerbread is a fun way to spend an afternoon, and you can go one step further by making a gingerbread house. Don’t forget the candy canes too!
Christmas decorations are one of the best parts of the holiday, and there’s no reason why we should stick to the same boring theme every year. Here at eshopguide.com, we love to pick a new theme every year to keep things fresh and interesting. If you’re looking for some more inspiration, check out our Home & Garden category for more sites.
