Christmas has always been the best time of the year for me and you know what makes it better? Decking my house with Christmas decorations that set the mood. It's amazing getting every inch of my house decked out and into the holiday spirit, playing carols all day long and wrapping presents for my loved ones. I always look forward to it and the week before Christmas is the best time to start decorating. Whether you prefer traditional decor or something a bit more modern, there are lots of ideas and ways to make your home festive and cozier for the holidays.

Put up a Christmas Tree! with lots of lights and ornaments and a sparkly Christmas tree topper. It's a favourite activity with kids.
2. Hang up Christmas Stockings

3. Decorate with Christmas Cushions and Throws

Switch out your throw pillows for cozy, textured neutrals with pops of red for Christmas or proper Christmas cushions. It gives the living room some warmth and definitely infuses some Christmas spirit.

I love using natural and rustic materials for decor and incoporating it into my Decor for Christmas was easy. Why not try using brown cardboard boxes and burlap to wrap your gifts this Christmas ?
