How To Make Your Home Festive In Time For Christmas

Christmas isn’t too far away: in fact, there’s only 50 days to go. If your home is lacking some festive touches, we’re here to show you that the simplest of decorations can inject some holiday cheer – from warming home fragrances to soft, glowing lights, discover some easy ways to prepare your house for Christmas below…

Home Fragrance


Create a wonderful festive atmosphere with heady home fragrances this season. Choose deep, rich scents with strong notes of leather, spices, and sweet fruits: with brands including Stoneglow, Ted Baker and Harlequin, discover your new favourite candle, reed diffuser or oil here.



Even if you’ve not got the Christmas lights out of the attic yet, you can still add some sparkle to any room with string fairy lights. Drape across the mantelpiece or gather into delicate bell-jars: however you style them, string lights are the perfect way to transform any room into a warm and inviting environment.



Who doesn’t love to cocoon beneath layers of blankets as the months get cooler? Whilst your decorative throws and pillows are stripped back for the summertime, the cold snap is the perfect opportunity to invest in some soft furnishings; choose textures of faux fur, cashmere and tweed for a festive twist.

Warm Metals


Copper and gold are the most festive of metals, so stock up on beautiful decorative pieces to scatter throughout your home. Our particular favourites have to be bespoke clocks, stunning mirrors and statement photo frames, all in shimmering shades of bronze.
