Paint The Town Red
Bright colors exhale a much desired positive aura during Christmas. Instead of the boring and cold neutral shades, opt for bright shades like yellow, red, orange and even gold. You can go for the double shades like red and gold or even orange and matte gold. The idea is to create bright interiors that attract immediate attention.
Redesign A Portion
Convert a wall into graffiti and paste all engagement, wedding, even the family moment photographs including the miniscule get-togethers. It will make the corner an interesting one as it will become a piece of nostalgia.
Change The Furnishing
Furnishing is one aspect that will help you in creating a festive look. Go for the French look with paisley and floral prints in hues of yellows and pinks. To be on the safer side, grab a patterned carpet or rug for the ultimate contemporary look.
To elaborate the festive fervor, team up red roses with ferns in the dining area.
Change The Lighting Style
If you wish to be fancier you can use the handmade cane or the Chinese hanging lights. Change the shading aspect and opt for more bright lights in the TV area. Keep it dim to give a softer look by the lounge side. Play with the lights and shades to reflect your mood. This will also save you a lot of money.
Let The Fragrance Spread
Keep elaborate flower arrangements as during Christmas, you get great bargains to grab from. In the sitting area, keep a neat arrangement of yellow orchidswhich is ideal for the Christmas mood.
Let your first Christmas be full of fun and frolic without the tensions of monetary concerns.
