Make your living room relaxing, cosy and warm with Scandi style

If your home is going to be the hub of family festivities this Christmas, your living room will be the go-to place to unwind. Make relaxation the central theme of your scheme by embracing the key elements of Scandi style.

Create a nostalgic, cosy feel with white thick pile rugs, grey snug throws, and textured cushions featuring a classic winter knit pattern like Fair Isle or Nordic. Dot plenty of Christmas-scented candles around your coffee table and mantelpiece, and highlight any rustic features by draping over fairy lights for added sparkle. Add interest with Maisons du Monde's super-cute light-up cotton deer wall art, £32.39.

Double up on cosiness with the layered rug trend

Updating your home for Christmas doesn't have to be a big job. Layering rugs is a wonderfully simple decorative trend that can help define your space, make a statement, add texture, a pop of colour and warmth, of course!

If you're sticking to neutral decorating scheme this season, opt for one plain rug layered with another featuring a minimal monochrome design like the Ecru and Black Berber cotton rug, £91.99. Keep an eye out for this trend in the Good Homes Boxing Day roomset at the Ideal Home Show.

Add interest with an alternative Christmas wreath

As one of the most iconic seasonal decorations, the Christmas wreath is commonly placed on front doors to spread festive cheer and give visitors a warm welcome. This year, Maisons du Monde is bringing the wreath inside with a uniquely stylish spin that's sure to be a talking point for guests.  

The leaf pendant in gold metal, £47.99, is a minimalist take on the traditional Christmas wreath, inspired by the hygge approach to life. The wreath also doubles up as a stunning light fitting which is perfect for introducing an interesting and quirky focal piece to your dining or living room.  

Display Christmas gifts with mix and match wrapping paper

Instead of hiding Christmas gifts away from prying eyes, why not take the opportunity to get creative and incorporate them into your decorating scheme.Mix and match wrapping paper in different patterns and pair with brown paper to help busy prints sit well together.

We love Maisons du Monde's printed pink and purple cardboard boxes, £19.18 for two. The pink palette combined with plum hues and geometric and floral prints, gives off a warm, vintage feel. Pile these high around your Christmas tree or an unused chair. Be warned, these presents are so pretty you won't want to open them!

Style up your cocktail cart

No Christmas get together would be complete without a classy cocktail cart to serve up a round of festive drinks on. This gold metal and glass end drinks trolley, £286.50, oozes sophistication and can be styled up with gold balloons and fairy lights for New Year Eve party.
