Upon entering our nursery and plant centre in Limerick, you immediately get those warm Christmas vibes! The Christmas trees and inspirationally presented decorations will surely get you in the right mood for the Holidays. But how do you apply the Christmas ornaments just as stylish in your own home? We are happy to give you 3 Christmas decorating tips & tricks in this article.
Time to celebrate, so don't hold back
Let's be honest: just like in 2020, it will definitely not be a carefree Christmas. The Covid virus counts are increasing, and there is a good chance that more restrictions and measures will follow—every reason to spoil yourself, for example, with a beautiful house filled with Christmas joy. The twinkly lights, the colourful decoration and that delicious Christmas tree scent, make you a happy person, doesn't it? We are pleased to help you style all those Christmas elements as beautifully as possible.
Tip 1: Complementary colours
As you know, colour is essential when it comes to creating a cozy atmosphere. Maybe you have a blue wall, a green sofa or a set of pink pillows. Awesome! It is even more fun to use those same colours in your Christmas decorations. Choose baubles and ornaments in colours that complement the rest of your accessories. It's fun to add shades that match but aren't exactly the same. This way, a playful yet balanced interior is the result. A greyish green, for example, fits beautifully with a greyish pink, yellow or terra colour. Still, have doubts? Get started with a colour swatch from the hardware store and see which colours match your interior and taste.
Tip 2: Create cozy corners
Some people are blessed with the 'style gene' and can turn the most diverse home accessories into a beautiful unity. Others find it a lot more difficult not to mess up different decorations. We will always encourage you not to hold back and show off as many decorations as you like. In that sense, less is certainly not more during the Christmas period. However, there are ways to decorate your Christmas ornaments just that little bit more stylish:
✓Choose an odd number (3 or 5) of items you want to place in the same spot. You will see that your items look nicer together.
✓ Make sure that you choose items that are not too similar in shape, material and height. Variation is key!
✓ It is smart to opt for a colour palette that does not look too messy. Tone-sur-ton ensures unity.
Tip 3: use all your senses
You won't be surprised if we say that when it comes to shopping for Christmas decorations, the eye is your primary guide. No wonder because you want your Christmas ornaments to look beautiful. However, you should not forget your other senses either. A soft rug or a wonderfully scented candle also do a lot for your Christmas home - and let's not forget the Christmas music. Who secretly doesn't love Mariah!? So think one step further when purchasing all kinds of Christmas decorations and make your living room an experience for all the senses.
