Go for a strong colour scheme

I have gone for black and gold on my tree. I’ve picked feathers, stars, baubles big and small to bring scale and structure to my tree. Bring these colours into the rest of your living room by dressing your mantelpiece and windows with foliage and then pop in baubles in the same colour palette.

Don’t forget dressing your windows

String fairy lights across your windows, use festive window film to create a snowy scene or even drape foliage along your window sills. If you have curtains, use festive ribbons as alternative tie backs.

Use battery powered fairy lights -I have them draped down my blinds to bring sparkle and shine.

Dress your sofa with Christmas cushions

Create a cosy space perfect for watching  seasonal movies with a sofa piled high with cushions. I like buying inexpensive ones decorated with a stag motif, red robins or even snowflakes and dotting them around my living room as they bring instant Christmas cheer to my home.

Get Maxine’s style

Welcoming the festive season with a strong colour scheme, Maxine has made a statement with black and gold on her tree. The crisp white Wooden blinds in Maxine’s bay window really make these colours pop and add a beautiful backdrop to the room.
