Decorating your house in the colours of the season  - Getting your home ‘Christmas-ready’

Decorating your house in the colours of the season - Getting your home ‘Christmas-ready’

‘Tis the season to give. ‘Tis the season to spread cheer. But the home-lover in us says - ‘Tis the season to decorate! But the Christmas tree is up and decorated, you say! Oh honey, the tree is just the start. We are talking about infusing your entire home with the colours of the season - the cheery reds, the brilliant greens, the pure whites and the sparkling golds.


We have 2 utterly gorgeous home decor themes for you to choose from to welcome Father Christmas. But before we tell you how to go about creating the most gorgeous Christmas decor in your home, we have a 10-second quiz that will help you figure out which home decor scheme matches your design aesthetic. All you have to do is this - Close your eyes and tell us the top things that pop in your head when we say the word “Christmas”.


If you said Santa, cookies and candy cane, then you are like a lot of us. Christmas, for you, is all about nostalgia and reliving your childhood memories. Of decorating the tree, wrapping and unwrapping gifts, of meeting Santa and telling him your secret wish. And you probably like to decorate your home in a way that takes you back to your childhood. And it most likely starts with a traditional green and red wreath, hanging on your door and, some mistletoe hanging over the doorstep.  Nothing says Christmas more than a beautifully decorated tree. So, go ahead and load up that tree with the prettiest ornaments from Cross Currents. Our philosophy - A Christmas tree can never have too many ornaments! Create a Christmas wonderland with Santa Claus figurines, snow globes, and the Polar Express train chugging along with the most beautiful Christmas motifs. And for a dose of old style charm, how about a set of handsomely dressed wooden snowmen with red top hats and golden scarves placed on a console table or mantlepiece. And of course, a beautifully crafted angel to usher in peace as we wrap up a year filled with memories and look forward to making more in the New Year. And voila, you have a home that is so festive that even Santa wouldn’t want to miss.

 

 Now, on the other hand, if the glitter of lights and tinkling of wine glasses are what popped in your head, then you probably want the decor of your house to be classy, sophisticated and ready to entertain. The traditional overload of green and red, that’s not for you. It’s all about subtlety for you. You’d probably like to see hints of green, red and gold amidst a sea of sparkling lights. So, how about creating a chic and elegant console table to welcome your guests this holiday season. An oversized green mosaic lamp, a pair of gorgeous golden reindeer, a red urn and a few tea light candles will create the most alluring display while still alluding to the colours of the season. What is Christmas without some decadent desserts and lively conversations, right? Stock up your dining table with some rich plum cake or pie and freshly baked cookies. Scatter some golden hued wooden fruits, our contemporary round tea light holder and you truly have a feast - for your eyes and taste buds!

 

 

At the end of the day, Christmas is all about getting together and sharing in the warmth of the season with loved ones. Now that your home truly reflects the joy of the season, sit back with a nice glass of wine, soak in the cheer and merriment that surrounds you and enjoy that sinfully decadent plum cake that just popped out of the oven. Merry Christmas everyone!
