How To Achieve That Cosy Feeling At Home This Christmas

How To Achieve That Cosy Feeling At Home This Christmas

As we all count down the days until Christmas, more and more households are staying in to enjoy their Christmas decorations, watch a festive film and get cosy with loved ones.

Whatever you do to get yourself in the Christmas spirit, whether it’s cracking open a tin of Roses, enjoying a mince pie or singing along to All I Want For Christmas Is You, home is where the heart is at Christmas time.

Referred to as hygge by our Scandinavian friends, getting cosy is an incredibly important part of that Christmas feeling.

Dress up your fireplace

There’s plenty of room for two shining stars in your home – your tree and your fireplace! This year, give your fireplace the attention it deserves and make it a festive centrepiece in your room.

There is a new trend of placing a wreath above your fireplace, so it’s a good idea to invest in two wreaths – one for your front door and one for your fireplace.

Alongside a garland on the mantel, use neon lighting to spell out a message full of festive cheer, such as ‘Merry Christmas’ or ‘’Tis the Season’.

Place fairy lights in empty bottles and jars

With plenty of parties happening this time of year, it should be relatively easy for you to collect a few used wine bottles or jars.

Ensure you scrub off the labelling and clean inside with soap, then drill a hole into the bottom of the bottle or jar, so you can pass through some battery-powered LED lights. And there you go – an affordable festive arrangement that will dial up the cosiness of your home.

You can also find ready-made bottles with lights inside if you’d rather not indulge in too much wine leading up to the main event.

Use treasured Christmas memories as your decor

Christmas is a time for loved ones, spending time with those closest to us and remembering those no longer with us.

Therefore, we recommend you display a collection of photos from special memories of past Christmases on personalised baubles, wall art or even inside a snow globe!

There’s nothing more heart-warming than being surrounded by loved ones at Christmas.
