Adding Scents

 

It is scientifically proven that scents can alter a person's mood within an instant. Incorporating festive cents such as cinnamon, pine, caramel and even apple can lift your mood and have you feeling festive during this time of year.

 

Use Rich Colours

 

Change old curtains, sheet sets, and even accent pieces such as pillows, rugs and other accessories, to rich festive colours.

 

Don't skimp on the Candles

 

Scattering candles around your space either in groups or individually can add a "christmassy" ambiance. You can either use plain or red and green candles and place them in strategic places to give your space that holiday glow.

 

Bring Holiday Plants Indoors

 

 

Plants are known to add life to any space. Bring holiday plants such as Poinsettia and Euphorbia and placing them as centre pieces on various tables within the house.

 

Ordain Your Front Door

 

Decorating your front door with a subtle Christmas ornament is an easy way to bring the Christmas cheer. Use a wreath, ribbons or even changing the welcome mat can make your door stand out.

 

Make an ornament accent

 

Instead of getting a tree, create an ornament accent with items around your house. Place a tree branch in a jar and hang Christmas ornaments from it, or even place multicoloured ornaments on a cake stand. Get creative!

 

Golden Tones

 

Adding a touch of gold is a perfect way to bring a bit of sparkle like the star of Bethlehem on the very first Christmas morning. Gold is elegant once not overdone, so just add a touch here and there not too much to overpower the room.
