Creating the perfect Christmas living room

Creating the perfect Christmas living room

Are you looking to create a warm abode this Christmas? Think mulled wine, mince pies, cosy throws and oh-so-comfy sofas. Take a look at how you can create the perfect Christmas living room over the festive period. It’ll be so toasty, you won’t want to leave!

Throws

Throws become your best buds over Christmas. Without a super soft throw you find yourself feeling cold and not in the slightest bit cosy; unless of course you’re snuggling up on the sofa with your other half! Imagine curling up on the sofa to watch your favourite Christmas film without a mug of something delicious and that essential chocolate orange…it just wouldn’t happen, would it? And it’s the same with a throw. These blankets of bliss are sure to promise you a warm winter and will no doubt ignite that festive spirit you’ve been excited about since the leaves started falling. Welcome a throw into your home this season and you’ll certainly start to feel that sense of excitement…just like when you see the ‘Coca-Cola’ advert on your screen after almost 11 months without it!

Scented Candles

Scented candles are the perfect way to create a festive ambience. There are a wide range of Christmas scents available from blends of cinnamon and cloves, to aromas of cranberry and orange. Decoratively place a scented candle on your coffee table or on your window sill and allow it to work its scintillating and aromatic magic whilst also creating a desirable candlelight ambience. Capture Christmas with a deliciously scented candle.

Bunting

Decorate your home with Christmas bunting and you’ll no doubt instil that festive feel into your home. Depending on how adventurous you are, you could make the bunting yourself using Christmassy fabrics that feature prints that are adorable yet oh-so-cheesy. Isn’t that what Christmas is all about?!

Christmas Trees

Finally, a Christmas tree. Christmas isn’t Christmas without a bauble-covered tree. Whether you decide to get yours from your local shop or make it a family affair by venturing down to the woods to choose your towering tree, it’s as much needed as brandy sauce is to Christmas pudding. Just please no tinsel; that certainly won’t allow you to achieve a favourable look for this jolly festivity. Whilst tinsel was once upon a time one of the only ways to adorn your tree, it’s now regarded as tacky tatter. Adorn your tree with sophisticated lights, baubles and cute handmade decorations.

Sofa
One way of updating the focal point of your living room is to invest in a new sofa. If you’re not looking to splash out however, you can always accessorise your existing suite with a number of new accessories, Check out Couch, for an independent source of living room furniture.  Take a look at their range of beautifully-crafted furniture and sofa accessories and you’ll no doubt find pieces that’ll complete your home this winter.
