Bring in a few Christmas touches into your hallway and decorate your console table with baubles, tealights and candles, mistletoe and aromatic sprigs of spruce for a festive fragrance. Stick to an all-silver colour scheme to create a magical Christmas scene.
Don’t forget the stairs

Make the most of an open fire at Christmas (if you’re lucky enough to have one). Stock up on logs and dress the mantelpiece by grouping festive objects and decorations, foliage and garlands it to give a stunning result. Finally, for another shot of red, get creative and craft a heart garland then add Christmas stockings and some extra twinkling lights.

Keeping wine and spirits out on display rather than hidden away creates a warm and hospitable feel in a house full of guests. Whether you’re using a pretty cart, stealing space on a tabletop or clearing off the top of your sideboard, this is the perfect opportunity to up the glam factor.

Your living room is going to be your hibernation spot over the Christmas period, so make it as warm and inviting as can be. Layer up the cosiness with woollen blankets and cushions for fireside armchairs. Keep additional throws close to hand in baskets or blanket boxes will allow your guests to snuggle up on sofas and armchairs. Look for Christmassy designs in keeping with your furniture and your tree for a room scheme that looks effortlessly co-ordinated.
Christmas in every room

Since it’s easy to overlook cloakrooms, kitchens and guest rooms, think of small-scale Christmas ideas for these spaces. What about Christmas pompom garlands, fun tea towels, glass bowls of Christmas ornaments or a vase of winter berries? They can all add a festive touch to your home.
