5 timeless ways to style up your home before Christmas

You’ve put your Christmas wreath up, with the all-important tree and mistletoe to come – so what’s missing? This season, why not invest in some timeless home accessories which you can use again and again for Christmas and beyond. 

Finishing touches like pillows, ornaments and candles let you sprinkle a touch of Christmas throughout your home without the hefty price tag.

Or, you could bring a touch of glamour to your dining table by adding some sparkly accents, lanterns and new photo frames. Items like these can help to enhance your Christmas decorations, without you having to make any major updates to your home.

Here's how to dust a little bit of Christmas magic over your home without breaking the bank. 

A touch of sparkle

Whether you're going for a few little accents or full-on blingmania, silver is a great colour to incorporate around the home and goes with almost every other colour or home furnishing.

Spice up side tables, coffee tables and your mantelpiece with these metallic silver LED candles and this glitzy photo frame. We're also loving the way these silver wine glasses that will match cutlery on the dining table, pulling everything together into one fabulous look.

Glittering gold

Gold is a classic Christmas colour and adds a lovely, warm hue to the home. But it's also easy to style up gold so it can be used all year round!

We're loving this minimalist wall clock with gold accents. Tie it into your lounge with this gold Edison lamp too, which is very on-trend right now. After something a bit more playful? This glittering star-covered plate and bowl set is super cute while remaining subtle, and a great way to brighten up mealtimes.

Festive tartan

Bold prints in classic patterns show you've put time and thought into how to make your home both stylish and individual. A gorgeous, scarlet tartan print will add a lovely festive vibe to the home without having to go overboard.

Tartan throws and pillows are an easy and affordable way to style up an otherwise simple sofa. We're also loving this picture-perfect tartan plate set, which will look just as fabulous with Christmas dinner as it will with your average morning's tea and toast!

Warm and cosy

Get ready to bed down for the chilly months with some cosy home accents that will transform your living space from drab to fab in an instant. Throws, cushions and candles are all your friends at this time of year. We're especially loving fluffy throws which give the home a touch of ski chalet-chic, and soft and squishy cushions in a variety of clashing textures to add some colour and style to that sofa.

Scented candles are an easy way to make large or empty spaces feel more cosy and intimate. We're loving the scent of this Cosmpolitan three-wick candle which has a burning life of up to 30 hours.

The night before christmas

As the nights draw in and the weather begins to get colder and colder, there is nothing better than getting into a nice warm bed in your comfies.

Extend your winter styles from your main living areas up into the bedroom with cosy duvet covers in winter colour schemes. This Scandinavian knitwear-inspired duvet set with traditional patterns is both timeless and festive, while this navy and bottle green tartan set will look gorgeous with a fluffy throw and some added cushions thrown over the top. Feeling Christmassy? This set covered with illustrations of stags is reversible, so you can mix up your bedroom look with next to no effort!
