For those that want living room walls that look great this Christmas, we’ve teamed up with Oldrids & Downtown, a provider of bedroom furniture, to give you a guide on how you can change your interior design and make it more beautiful for the festive season!
The living room is arguably the most important room in the home when it comes to Christmas time. In here, you will be propping up your Christmas decorations and flooding your sofa with seasonal cushions and throws. But there are some top tips and tricks you need to know to make your home more visually pleasing for the festive season.
If you decide that you want to pull out all the stops this Christmas and repaint your walls for December, we recommend that you go with a matt color, such as a sage green or a traditional royal blue, that will make all of your furniture pop out from the walls. However, if you’re not looking to repaint entirely — the rest of your decorating will not suffer, as there is a lot of versatility around Christmas decor.
Once your walls are ready, it’s time to decide what to put on them. You don’t want to make them too cluttered, but you definitely want to have a movie-like backdrop when it comes to taking photographs on the big day. If you want to showcase your picture-perfect family, hang different sized frames across your wall in an inconsistent pattern — if you don’t want to use multiple photographs and only want to shine the spotlight on one family portrait, make sure that it’s a big photograph to reduce the risk of it looking lost on your wall.A pre-lit wreath with baubles can make your living room look extra special and you can be adventurous with its placement. When all is said and done, everyone will admire the way your living room looks this Christmas!
