Ah, Christmas – the perfect time to catch up with family, ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ over gifts, eat a helluva lot of food and quite simply, have a jolly good knees up. And wouldn’t it just top it all off to have the ultimate living room to celebrate it all in. Here we show you how one living space can be transformed into three very different looks. So whether you want to completely renovate your lounge in time for Christmas or are just looking for a quick festive update, read on for inspiration.
There’s something about Christmas that makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Amplify that by 100 by adding an array of cosy touch-me textures to your living room, such as this velvet Hendricks sofa and sheepskin beanbag. Throw in a luxe marble table and you’ve got the perfect propping surface for that Christmas cocktail party in the diary. Dog not included (sorry).
They say good things come in small packages, and it’s certainly true for the Momo sofa. Perfect for smallish spaces, create an elegant living room with one (or two) of these compact sofas centred around a stylish coffee table, and then add the cosy factor with glowing candles, a soft-to-the-touch rug and stand-out cushions and throws. Et voila.
Make your fireplace or mantelpiece the star attraction by giving it a festive finish – we’re talking wreaths, garlands, lights, baubles, you name it. Keep it classy by choosing one accent colour and sticking to it – in this case, gold. And remember, metallics aren’t just for Christmas; the Tilda glass coffee and side table with copper base adds a luxe edge all year round.
What are you waiting for? Be sure to order your living room furniture by 11th December (made to order sofas by 6 November) so that you put your feet up and sit by the fire with a well-earned mulled wine before the big day arrives.
