Decorating rooms for Christmas

Christmas decorating is more than just a tree. You can decorate your whole house or just a single room.

You may choose to have a uniform colour theme throughout or have different colour themes in each room.

Where should I decorate?

You don’t have to limit your design to the lounge room (or tree location). Why not consider decorating the following spaces:

  • Outdoors (lighting, outdoor areas, front door, windows)
  • The kitchen
  • Dinning room
  • Guest bathroom
  • Mantel piece
  • Stair wells
  • Halls

Need some ideas for themes and colour options?

  • Nordic
  • White Christmas
  • Pink
  • Red and Gold
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Green
  • Blue and White
  • Snow Flake
  • Nature
  • Teddy Bears
  • Reindeers
  • Angels
  • Paper
  • Music
  • Glassware

If you change your colour themes from year to year, you may choose to recycle older pieces and re-paint/re-cover items to save money


  • Plan your design before starting, it makes it easier to sort what items go where and to identify what you may need to make or purchase.
  • The first thing that you need to do is go through what you already have. Do you have Christmas decorations, a tree, some bits and pieces from previous years? If so they are coming around for a second viewing.
