Christmas is on its way and as the excitement builds it is also time to start thinking about decking the halls with festive decorations.
Fortunately, leading design house Neptune has some ideas to help make creating warm, welcoming and imaginative Christmas decor almost effortlessly easy.
When it comes to creating a look that feels warm and traditionally festive, the tree is an obvious place to start.
Most of us have a set way we decorate our Christmas trees each year. Maybe you go for a completely multi-coloured approach or you could favour a more pared back and minimal contemporary style.
Whatever your look, fairy lights are a must for a truly festive feel and with an extension kit such as the one that comes with Neptune Savoy Christmas lights, you can add as much as you like.
The next step is picking your hanging decorations. Glass decorations work perfectly in any scheme, bronze and gold tones will feel rich and warm whilst wooden decorations provide a rustic touch.
The festive season is all about nostalgia and family traditions, be it enjoying existing ones or establishing new ones.
With this in mind, Neptune has created a Christmas collection which can be treasured and built upon each year in the hope it will become the heirloom decorations children and grandchildren bring down from the attic in the years to come.
Their Aurora Antique Baubles €10 and Evelyn Mercury baubles nod to nostalgia, while their etched Xanthe baubles and hanging tea light holders will bring crispness and flickering candlelight to your branches.
And when it comes to that great festive tradition of choosing gifts for loved ones, there are velvet Christmas stockings in jewel-like colours that decorate the room while waiting patiently for Santa to arrive on Christmas eve.
Christmas decorations are there to make us smile. Playing with them makes them even more joyful, so go on, enjoy the fun of decorating and have a very merry Christmas.
