How To Decorate Your Living Room For Christmas
The living room is one of the main rooms you want to decorate for the holiday season. After all, this is one of the rooms where your guests will spend a lot of time, apart from the dining room if you are lucky enough to have one. So, how do you decorate your living room perfectly? Here are some top tips from the experts.
How To Get That Christmas Glow In The Living Room?
One of the things guests often mention when they enter a lovely decorated room is the “Christmas glow”. To achieve this look, you basically need to take lighting into consideration. Fortunately, it is an easy thing to do and not expensive at all.
Christmas lights – To achieve the Christmas glow, you need some warm Christmas lights on the Christmas tree. Of course, you can also use multi-coloured lights, but then you have to compensate with some other light sources in the room.
Add glassware – If you tend to read lots of interior decorating blogs, you may have noticed a tip mentioning mirrors and glassware. Glass has the tendency to reflect light, so using it in your Christmas room is recommended. You can strategically place some glassware for your guests near the Christmas tree, or place a beautiful crystal vase on the coffee table. Simply use what you have in your home. There is no need for additional investments.
Candles – Candles are another way to add the Christmas glow in your living room. Like Christmas lights, they have a warm ambience that fills the room with Christmas joy. Of course, this can be a little tricky when there are kids around. Fortunately, you can also get fake candles these days, which have the look of a real candle, but work on a battery.
Which Colour Scheme Is Best For Living Room Decorations?
Those who have decorated their living room before probably experimented with lots of different colour schemes. Once you become more experienced, it is certainly a good idea to try some non-traditional colours like blue. However, if you are decorating by yourself for the first time, stick to the usual colours to make it a little easier for yourself.
The traditional Christmas colours for decorations are considered to be green, red, and gold. In some cases, you can also use a small amount of silver. Finding the right balance between the different colours and bauble sizes can be tricky, but you’ll soon get the hang of it.
If you really do not like the traditional Christmas colours, or if these do not work with your interior for whatever reason, you can go for a simplistic look instead. To achieve this look, you will use a lot of neutral colours; this means you will grab silver and white baubles, Christmas socks, and other decorations.
Once you become more proficient, you may want to incorporate the colours of your furniture into the colour scheme of your tree. For example, if you have a blue sofa, then you might want to consider a combination of blue and white Christmas tree decorations. It is that simple. Of course, you have to be careful not to overdo it when you use similar colours. Otherwise, your room may look too blue. Evidently, this is why you combine blue with silver or white to create some contrast.
Can I Use Fresh Foliage As Christmas Décor?
Short answer, you can. There is nothing quite like the look of a foliage Christmas wreath or foliage garlands on your staircase. However, you do need to consider the limited lifespan of these real decorations.
When working with fresh foliage, make sure you give the decoration an additional protective treatment to prevent it from turning brown too fast. You could also use things such as eucalyptus and ferns, which tend to last longer than other types of foliage.
If you want your guests to enjoy the greenest of decorations, be sure not to put up your real foliage too early. Also look at some of the materials we mentioned earlier, who tend to stay green and fresh lots longer. While real foliage does require a little more crafting time, it is more than worth it.
