Switch up your colour palette

When it comes to a Christmas home décor colour palette, the first shades that come to mind are always red and green. These colours go so well together, but if you’re wanting to elevate your home décor for the holidays, why not try a new colour combination? You could try pairing pink and red together for a more playful atmosphere that reminds your guests of candy canes and other delicious festive treats. Kmart have a wide range of pink and red homewares available and if you’re looking for a different shade of red to use, such as a rich burgundy or blush pink, Big W have some incredible pieces that’ll had a more luxe look to your Christmas colour palette. Other great colour combinations you could try this year are green and white, and white, gold, and black!


Try a new tree

Sometimes the best thing to do to upgrade your Christmas home décor is to invest in a dazzling new tree! Over the last few years, so many new tree designs have been released that’ll instantly transform your space into a festive wonderland, whilst also matching your home’s unique aesthetic. If you’re a big fan of Scandinavian interiors, then you could try displaying a tree with dark grey leaves and decorating it with rose gold, white and black baubles. A wooden tree may also be a good choice for anyone who prefers a hygge-like home, as well as those who enjoy more minimalist décor. If you’re prepared to step outside the box and really lean into the unexpected this Christmas, then why not invest in a white Christmas tree and decorate it with iridescent purple and blue ornaments? This sort of tree is bound to catch the eye of your guests and make this Christmas extra magical.


Dress up your dining table

Hosting a Christmas feast for your family and friends this year? Then you’ll need to make sure your table styling is on point! Whether you’re putting on a casual barbecue, a lavish roast dinner or a chic cocktail party, elevating your dining table will ensure your guests will still be talking about your Christmas soirée well after New Year’s. Grab some green and red coupe glasses from Kmart to serve your Christmas beverages in, and why not pop your tasty trifle in their red and pink ribbed serving bowl? Wrap your napkins in traditional golden napkin rings from Bed Bath N Table and allow your guests to eat by candlelight with a Christmas candle holder centrepiece from Adairs.
