Christmas home decor

Posted by Ciara Doyle on

 Whether you want to create something new or add a modern twist to the old, give your home some festive flair with these simple decor ideas and inspiration from Laura and Ciara, Founders of Lil & Co Home. 

  1. Paper decor is set to be a big trend for Christmas 2023 and a nice throwback to our youth. Whether it’s large paper stars hanging from the ceiling or smaller paper trees across your dining table or sideboards, they are the perfect addition to your festive decorations. Paper decor has so many benefits, they’re eco-friendly, easy to put together and can be folded up and used time and time again. 

  2. Create a focal point in your sitting room by dressing your mantlepiece. Invest in a garland or green foliage, bulk it up with a variety of Christmas decorations, like baubles and small ornaments in your chosen colour palette and layer in candle holders in different heights to create a deeply rich and cosy scheme. We recommend using battery-operated candles when styling among garlands and foliage.  

  3. Plan your dining table in advance. We recommend dressing your dining table the night before to take the stress out of doing it on Christmas morning. It doesn’t have to be overly complicated but think about what colour theme you want to aim for. A white tablecloth or runner, lined with eucalyptus cuttings, and Christmas baubles to add some sparkle and gold candle holders in different heights across the table will create a gorgeous festive atmosphere. For a special finishing touch add velvet bows to your napkins. 

  4. Be prepared to light a warm open fire to create an inviting and cosy atmosphere. Use a basket to store your logs, bringing the natural earthy tones and textures into your room. 

  5. Candlelight is a must for the festive season. They instantly add a glow, creating a cosy, elegant ambience. Add them to your windowsill, mantlepiece and table for a touch of festive glimmer.
