A frosted Christmas: (tips for how to have a frosted Christmas theme)

Loading...

Christmas is a truly magical time of year. So, even if you are a bit of a scrooge, you can’t deny that the Christmas festivities are a wholesome time of year, when family and friends alike come together, and you can just enjoy some quality time with the ones you love. Of course everyone’s dreaming of a white Christmas; unfortunately, here in the UK especially, fresh crisp snowfall on Christmas Day is a rarity, so creating that magical Christmas atmosphere is down to us. And there are ways to bring that Christmas spirit into your home; we have several styling tips to help you get it.

Start Small.

Starting small when introducing the decorations in your home doesn’t mean make it a small unseen affair. But instead quite the opposite, after all, the details are what create the bigger picture. Everyone has a stash of Christmas decorations they drag out every year; it may just be time to ditch those mismatched decorations you’ve accumulated over the years, and instead invest in some decorations that have a colour scheme or flow to them. Creating the magical Christmas morning feel without snowfall is not impossible. So with new tools such as spray-on snow, creating that picturesque Lounge is within reach: picture frosted windows, beautiful fireplace with a frosted Christmas wreath, and some reindeer in there.

Magical Lighting.

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.

Sparkling Silvers.

Let’s talk colour scheme. And long gone are the days of the bright red Christmas decorations, especially if you’re going for the frosted Christmas theme. Having too much red, or any other bright colours for that matter, could be overbearing. So, opt for a more understated colour scheme. You do not need to stick to just white; metallics are a great complementary scheme. You do not need to stick to just white; metallics are a great complimentary theme for white and the green of any natural decorations or wreaths. Silver or gold baubles, candle holders and decor will bring an amazingly classy touch and add some sparkle to your living space.

The Tree.

Last but by no means least is the most important thing,  the Christmas tree. And whether you are going for a real or fake tree, a frosted tree is possible. Spray-on snow around the edges, hand paint the white tips on the branches, or simply buy frost-ready, it is easier than ever. Decorating within the same colour scheme as throughout your home will help tie the whole thing together. A well decorated tree is a beautiful statement piece, and the perfect final touch to your winter wonderland.
