We cannot forget that lighting is key to any room, even when it is a special occasion. Fairy lights in faux snow or around the fireplace help to bring yet another touch of magic to the room and create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We all have those Christmas throw, pillow or bedding covers. So why not add Christmas shades to that collection? Either some classy white shades to add to the flow or go all out and get some Christmas themed shades. Candles are an absolute must: not only does the soft flickering flame add to the relaxed ambience, but the scents that are available today are astounding, from sandalwood to cinnamon and mulled wine, to a scent simply named ‘Christmas eve’, covering all senses can’t be a bad thing.
