This year, our fabulous style team has created six gorgeous roomsets packed with bags of inspiration and big ideas, showcasing the season’s on-trend colours and decorations to add wow factor to your interiors.
With headline sponsor, Maisons du Monde and Walls and Floors, Good Homes Style Editor Jessica Taverner has teamed up with Simone Gordon from Owl Design to create three living rooms and three dining rooms, each designed around the key dates of the festive calendar: Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve.
Here's a sneak peek at the key colour and interiors trends that will feature in our festive roomsets at this year's Ideal Home Show Christmas.
Christmas Day roomsets: Winter chic living room

Everybody dreams of a white Christmas, and although the weather doesn’t always go to plan, this scheme allows you to create your own. Think warm tones of white and cool ice blue, combined with an abundance of flickering candles, fairy lights and stars. Add texture and interest with gorgeous faux-sheepskin throws and shimmering wallpaper.
Christmas Day roomsets: Classic Elegance dining room

This look takes its inspiration from nature and uses lots of everyday objects, plus plants, branches and berries you’d find on a crisp winter’s walk. Decorate the entire length of your table with a handmade garland, bringing in stripes, linen and gingham in a classic colour palette of red, green and white.
Boxing Day roomsets: Five-star glamour dining room

Embrace a cosy, nostalgic feel with this updated colour palette of plum, brass, midnight blue, emerald green and lots of gold. Maximise key areas such as the fire surround, mantelpiece, alcoves or windows with wreaths, a clever log display and themed decorations – think grown-up nutcracker.
Boxing Day roomsets: Family Flair dining room

Christmas is all about coming together and celebrating with family and friends, so this on-trend scheme focuses on the art of banqueting, with an overall theme of relaxation and sharing. Decorations should have a raw, rustic feel with a contemporary edge of white furniture, subtle greys, pops of black and copper accessories to both bring in warmth and bounce light around the room.
New Year's Eve roomsets: Colourful carnival living room
From top left to right: Coffee table with Chrstmas baubles, Mark Scott, living room with blue sofa, Mark Scott; colourful Christmas wreath, Mark Scott; living room with multi-coloured strip wallpaper, Mark Scott; pink and blue Christmas baubles, Poundland
Anything goes with this maximalist trend - as long as it’s bright, shiny and includes lots of glitter and clashing colours. Give your tree a real statement look with ombre decorations in blocks of bold shades – go for quirky touches such as flamingos, toucans or hanging avocados!
New Year's Eve roomsets: Disco Fever dining room
From top left to right: Chair, Essential Home; balloons, Talking Tables; bar trolley, Talking Tables; Happy New Year, Talking Tables; silver fringing and baubles, Talking Tables; NYE-themed dining table decor, Dunelm
Think glamorous and luxurious, with a dash of fun - after all, it is a time to celebrate. Use shades of almost-black, dark inky blues, lots of balloons and twinkly lights mixed with gold and silver accents to give this scheme its party vibe. Hang oversized baubles from the ceiling and create a bar area with a metallic trolley to display drinks and nibbles.
