Here we are again, we're approaching the most magic, sparkly time of the year and we're all starting thinking about who to invite over and how to turn the house into a festive temple. You may have also found yourself reading Christmas recipes and, if you close your eyes long enough, you can picture the whole evening. Lights here and there, decorations, friends and family eating, toasting and chattering around.
Well, we feel that way too so we thought the best way to celebrate this amazing time of the year is to give you Christmas living room design and décor ideas to turn the core of your house in the perfect party setting.
The colours we chose for the living room are gold and white, classy, timeless and subtle, they will immediately give you a sense of comfort. Now let's start from the key feature: if you're not a big fun of real Christmas trees and want to have a durable one, opt for the gorgeous Frosted Fraser Fir Tree and couple it with metallic heart shaped tree decorations like the ones from West Elm. Add a statement candle holder like the one from Selfridges and don't forget a garland, like the elegant Lit Gold Glitter Ivy Leaf one from Next, it will set the atmosphere and welcome your guests For every kid inside us, make sure you hang your stocking for special gifts.
Now coming to the centre of the room we can only think about one main furniture piece that will be the best setting to talk, drink, relax and spend the nights in. Our Large Philo Sofa in Brushed Cotton Linen Mix - Biscuit, paired with a couple of comfy scatter cushions to set the atmosphere. It works incredibly well with the Single Sheepskin Rug in grey from John Lewis and a soft throw for maximum comfort.
