Easy tips to help style your door this year..!



 

 

Christmas has definitely come a little earlier this year and a really easy way to ease yourself into the festive spirit is to decorate the outside of your home!

Your front door is the first glimpse of your style and will instantly set the scene for your festivities!

We wanted to give you some inspiration and some ideas as to how you can style your front door and welcome in Christmas..!

Whatever your budget or taste!

First Things First..!

Bring the Inside Outside - Foliage & Greenery

 

We don't think you can ever have enough foliage and greenery both inside and outside your home.  It is such an easy way to bring life to a space and your front door should be no different.

We love to start with a faux base, whether it be a wreath or garland and inject fresh foliage in amongst it. This way you can mix up your looks and colour schemes year after year, and simply box your wreath and garlands away when the time comes.

Next, Add layers of interest ...

 Bring in extra features to your doorway to add interest - layer potted Christmas trees in baskets either side of the front door, or if you have steps, pop trees of different heights down them.

 

You can add pretty wooden decorations to the trees, or cover in grosgrain ribbon bows. We love these wooden stars Set of Four White Wooden Stars – CharlesTed

 

We love these baskets - For A sheltered area -  Alice Seagrass Planter (Available in Two Sizes) – CharlesTed or if you are more open to the elements a rattan basket works better. 

 

Drape and affix a garland over the door frame, or two if you would like more fullness or length either side of the door.

We recommend Choosing a simple fir garland with pine cones or flowers, or you could pick two different styles and intertwine them together- You can then add in seasonal flowers and faux stems of berries to add more depth to your scheme or to tie in with colours you may have chosen this year.

Get ready for Nightfall..!

And add lights..! As the sun sets your front door masterpiece comes into its own!
We love the twinkly festive feel fairy lights instantly give.
We always recommend a warm white coloured bulb, so it keeps the overall feel timeless and classical.
You can buy lights on thin wire, which makes them really easy to hide in amongst the greenery of the garland or wreath.
So they don't need to be perfectly placed.
Why not decorate the the potted trees outside your door, or affix to your Garland! 

 

Elevate your Style..!

 Add in extra accessories to your design, whether it be a grosgrain ribbon tied around your wreath, some baubles wired into the foliage or what about some bells tied in a pair with some eucalyptus or fresh mistletoe and hung from the garland?

You could even wire our gorgeous faux antlers into your design - It really is a time of year you can go to town!

These simple additions will take your design to the next level with very little effort and will look incredible!
