5 homeware reasons to get excited this Christmas

Struggling to get into the festive spirit this year? You won't be after you see our new George Home's Christmas range, which includes everything from soft furnishings and festive decorations to lighting and bedding. 

Julie Varma, senior design director for George Home told us: 'The Christmas build-up is a fun and exciting time, It's about spending quality time with family and friends and the thrill of decorating and getting your home ready for the festive period. 

'We have four Christmas trends for 2018, our traditional Scandinavian inspired trend, Nordic, focuses on the classic red and white tones creating a cosy homely feel. Ice Palace consists of pale pinks, coppers and whites for a luxurious whimsical Christmas. Electric Sky brings oil slick and silver hues to the Christmas tree and Santa's Vacation is just brilliant fun.'

Turn up your jolliest Christmas playlist and follow our lead... 

 

1. Hello, new bedding! 

It’s impossible to feel Scrooge-like with bedding this cheerful. From cute kids’ duvet covers they’ll go mad for, to grownup prints you’ll want to use in January, when it comes to Christmas bedding we’ve got you covered. Plus, guests will love them, too!

 

2. Mini trees have arrived

Forget lugging six-foot evergreens up the stairs, this year it’s all about tiny, twinkling numbers instead. Dot them around the home - from the dining room table to the downstairs toilet - for a fun nod to the big day, without compromising on space. The best bit? They won’t leave needles everywhere, either. 

3. Gifting just got good

Feeling frazzled at the length of your to-do list? Tick off those tricky-to-buy for types in store - you’ll find everything from cosy hot water bottle covers to festive candles and stylish homeware. For kids, solve your wrapping woes and delight little faces by boxing up gifts in their very own ‘Santa’s workshop’ parcel. Thoughtful Christmas shopping never looked so easy. 

4. Too much bling is not a thing

When else can you get away with tinsel /everywhere? From glittery baubles to sparkling table centrepieces and jazzy front door wreaths, anything goes at this time of year. Worried your decorations are a little much? There’s no such thing - go big on glitter (and that’s an order).    

 

5. Even breakfast is fun

Reindeer plates, snow-frosted glasses and the cutest tableware you’ve ever laid eyes on - every meal becomes the main event in the run-up to Christmas. Stock up on stylish kitchenware you’ll want to use for years to come and inject a little sparkle into every meal. Even beans on toast…
