5 Natural Christmas Decorating Ideas


HOW TO DECORATE YOUR HOME NATURALLY THIS FESTIVE SEASON

Christmas is the perfect time to create a magical atmosphere. No matter your home's style, from a city-dwelling to a country estate, you can reimagine your space by layering it with natural decorations.
The past twelve months have seen the roles of interiors and gardens seemingly flip, with more greenery introduced indoors, complete with lush indoor plants. We've all embraced green foliage and plants to create a sanctuary of calm this season. Now such outdoor joys as the uplifting pine cones, bright coloured fruits and mistletoe feel the perfect balance to a glistening Christmas tree.
Discover how to create a natural festive scene with our five favourite decorating ideas. By layering with green foliage, your home will enchant like never before and create an ambience that feels wonderfully serene during this festive season.

1. MAKE YOUR FRONT DOOR COME ALIVE WITH A CHRISTMAS WREATH

A bountiful wreath, complete with oranges and cinnamon sticks only takes minutes to hang, yet will give you hours of pleasure. It can magically transform your front entrance with heavenly scents and make guests feel instantly welcome.

2. ADD MORE JOY TO YOUR WALLS WITH DECORATIVE HANGINGS

Update nostalgic decorations such as bunting by adding fresh foliage and cinnamon sticks. We love how our Christmas stockings reflect a nature-inspired twist that plays to our senses.

3. LIGHT UP YOUR HOME WITH BEESWAX CANDLES

Create a cosy feel with the comforting glow of natural candles. A secret weapon for interior designers, candles makes a space feel larger and lighter. Particularly impactful for smaller rooms, versatile candles add a sense of warmth and ceremony. Enhance this warmth further with a cashmere throw and cushions.
Transform a living room by decorating with a chorus of candles each with a variety of widths and heights. The glow of a candle feels magical, and their natural beeswax scent creates a reassuring ambience.

Stylist Tip: When it comes to candles the more the merrier. Use this wonderful home accessory with dramatic effect by placing them along a console styled with hanging foliage.

4. TRANSFORM YOUR CHRISTMAS TREES AND PLANTERS WITH COPPER WIRE LIGHTS

Harnessing lights to create a joyful focal point is easier than you think. Ideal for arranging around individual trees or amongst planters, versatile copper wire lights are perfect for adding depth and whimsy to illuminate your home. The copper itself is more sustainable and a gentler alternative to plastic Christmas lights. Alternatively you can rely on beautiful beeswax candles to soften your festive decorations and allow them to glisten by candle light.

Stylist Tip: Layer with lights to enhance your greenery for those who love turning their natural trees or planters into a Christmas theme. Cluster lights make the perfect foundation for building other light sources and decorations. Alternatively, you can keep it simple and understated, enjoying the subtle glisten of understated copper lights.

5. DISPLAY SCENTED CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS

Add sensory charm to your Christmas decorations with wooden bowls filled with oranges, lemons, pine cones and spices such as cloves and cinnamon. Turn winter gatherings into a relaxed and intimate setting with gentle natural scents. The emotional comfort of these fragrances will make any lounge room feel nurturing.
