Over the coming weeks, it is likely that—like us—you will be welcoming friends, family and perhaps even a few strangers into your home to celebrate the festive season. On top of the bedlam of Christmas shopping and dinner, you will be tasked with creating a warm, welcoming ambience in your home for your guests.
Readying the home for your visitors can add extra strain to an already busy Christmas schedule. But aside from the inevitable cleaning and tidying, ushering the festive cheer and warmth into your home shouldn’t demand too much of your energy. To help ease the burden, The Hut’s homeware editors are on hand to show you that small, subtle and carefully selected homeware details will help transform your home with minimal effort.
Alongside your evergreen tree and mistletoe, candles offer one of the simplest ways to bring a sense of calm and comfort into the home. Whether you’re welcoming the aromas of the forest into your living room with Crabtree and Evelyn’s botanical candle, opting for understated minimalism courtesy of Broste, or injecting some happiness into the home with Neom’s happiness candle, make your home hyggeligt with ambient lighting this Christmas.
