It's that time of the year when you slide into the festive spirit and get easily inspired by the festive season to spruce up your space and deck up your place with holiday trimmings and ornaments.
IDdesign, the most innovative furniture franchise concept gives 6 refreshing ideas to decorate your place in Dubai this holiday season that your family and friends will definitely love.
1. Cheer up the doorway
Do not restrict the Christmas décor to the indoors. Greet your guests with an elegant wreath hung on the front door setting the Christmas cheer at the doorstep. Get your family together this season to get crafty by creating a simple DIY wreath using metal wires, twigs, dried leaves, cotton and colourful ribbons.
2. Spruce up the décor
This is the time to redecorate your home in glitz and glamour and it can be done in simple steps. Double the merry with festive accents across the living hall. Keeping in mind the existing wall and furniture colors, pick patterned vibrant shades of cushion covers in fabrics that look and feel luxurious – think velvet and soft wool.
Metallic accessories such as steel, brass or gold can instantly jazz up the décor such as candle holders, cutlery or plant pots.
Dress up the backs and arms of your dining chairs by tying graceful strings of glittery, red garlands to give the furniture a festive makeover.
These simple home décor tricks will get your home festive ready, making it a cozy, happy place to relax and celebrate.
3. An unconventional twist
Think beyond the traditional shades of reds and greens.
Draw inspiration from the snowy Christmas setting and translate the ‘White Christmas’ theme literally to your living space. The wintery tones of grey, silver and whites create the perfect color scheme for homes of all styles and demonstrate a contemporary way to design your home for the holiday season.
Don’t shy away from experimenting with the traditional Christmas tree. Instead of the classic red and gold hues, pick an eccentric color palette such as a striking yellow or fuchsia to deck up the tree.
4. Plaid upon plaid
Plaid is synonymous to cozy winter nights and the Christmas delight. A classic Christmas favorite, choose plaid as a theme to decorate your living space for a vintage, old-school take on the celebrations. Incorporate this timeless pattern into your home décor by adding a thick, woolen plaid throw on sofas to warm up the chilly nights. A red plaid table runner over the dinner table or plaid napkins are other great ways to bring in the fashionable Christmas décor.
5. Light up the lanterns
Decorating your living space with lanterns are a great technique as they are durable, simple and visually appealing. Surround lanterns with greenery and pinecones for a classic, elegant centerpiece.
Transform the corners of the room with large and small lanterns filled with fake snow and place candles or fairy-lights within - making a traditional winter night ambiance. Combine together pillar candles to add extra light. For a festive touch, tie a bow or wrap a colorful ribbon around a few candles to complement your other decorations.
6. Add a seasonal scent
Cinnamon sticks, marshmallow and musk scents can instantly transport you to your childhood Christmas memories. Stack up holiday scents by making a fragrant candle as a dining table centerpiece, surrounded by dried or fake branches and scatter around shiny ornaments, bells and beads.
