Whether your taste is contemporary, classic or alternative, we have a Christmas look for you, so get creative and create the Christmas living room of your dreams this year.
The contemporary Christmas living room
In modern homes, sometimes traditional Christmas decorations can look odd or out of place as they contrast too starkly with the whites, monochromes or greys that contemporary interiors often feature. Therefore, by opting for a subtler and contemporary Christmas display this year, you can perfectly compliment your modern look.
Stick to pale shades and simple decorations in the living room. A real Christmas tree adorned with a minimal selection of simple white or clear glass baubles can be a stylish way to add a festive feel with an avant-garde edge.
If you want to avoid a tree altogether, then try a tree motif stencilled onto one feature wall, which can be a fun alternative, without the added mess of falling pine leaves.
Adding texture to your modern living room can help to warm it and make it feel cosier when your festive guests arrive. Choose faux fur, silk or velvet accent cushions to accessorise a pale grey sofa, and use soft geometric-patterned rugs over wooden floors to create that Nordic winter-wonderland vibe. Complete the luxurious scene with a chrome-finished coffee table, stark white candles and white orchids or white poinsettias.
