Cosy Up For Christmas: How To Style Your Home For The Festive Period

With the longer, darker nights drawing in, our homes become a haven of relaxation and ultimate cosiness. There’s nothing quite like closing the cold out and letting candles, Christmas tree lights and decadently cosy throws set the ambiance. We’ve outlined our top tips to elegantly style your home this festive period and let the excitement commence.

Lighting is Key

Whether you prefer snuggling up with a good book by the fireplace or settling down to some television – soft lighting is the easiest way to introduce a level of cosiness into your home. In order to add true warmth to a room, adding a softer yellow bulb to lamps rather than a bright white light will help you cosy down. LED lightbulbs are not only better for our planet and your electricity bill, but they have a much more subtle glow than their incandescent counterparts.

Downlighting on furniture solutions is an excellent way to have a homey ambiance built-in permanently. Shown wonderfully here on our Rustic Oak Study with overhead downlighting helps to emphasize relaxation and style.

Cosy Textures

As the weather drops and homes become chillier, a great way to not only stay warm but turn the home into a cosy retreat is by adding throws with a high thread count. Throws work as the perfective practical yet decorative soft furnishing that adds cosy textures and helps to make rooms even more appealing to retreat to as the days draw to a close.

While it may be a more costly addition at the time, throws with high thread counts will last much longer and hold the heat closer to you. Lasting well past the Christmas period, investing now will save you replacing them year after year!

Hints Of Metallics

Metallics are a popular trend this season. This tone is perfect to add throughout your home as it adds a subtle nod to Christmas.

Adding decorations in a subtle silver or gold will add an element of Christmas spirit to any home instantly.  Excellent for neutral, minimalist interiors, this colour tone blends seamlessly against wooden staircases and white walls.

Bring the Outdoors in

Add texture throughout your home this season is by bringing the outdoors in with decorative elements such as Christmas tree twigs and greenery. Door wreaths are becoming more and more popular as the trend becomes more versatile to individuals’ tastes. Choose green and bushy elements for a traditional wreath or opt for a frosty white berry style for something more minimalistic.

Twig lights are becoming more on style for those wanting a more subtle festive tree that can sit ideally by tall units or in small corners to spread light throughout the home.


However you choose to cosy down for Christmas, we wish you and your family a wonderful festive period!

“Hugely admired by family and friends”

The room is transformed and has been hugely admired by family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the attentive and courteous client care – everything went according to plan and nothing seemed too much trouble. They were in regular contact before and after the installation. I would highly recommend Neville Johnson to anyone wanting to transform a room.

A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone.

We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.
