Whether you prefer traditional decor or something a bit more out there, we guarantee you’ll find something on this list. At PropertyFox, we would like you to deck your halls your way. Christmas decorating ideas are our gift to you this season!

Check out these festive holiday decorations that are sure to get everyone into the spirit.

Artificial Trees
If a real tree leaves a mess in your living room, let it go. Besides, artificial trees often have wires that are easy to curve and bend to better hold ornaments. Miss the scent of pine? A few scented candles (just not too close to the tree) should do the job.

Layer Up
Decorate using objects of different height. Start by hanging oversized snowflakes and building up the table with tall candlesticks. For the mantel, hang a garland made with olive branches. Layering up on decorations can give your home a cosy festive feel, even in the midst of summer.

Play with Colours
You don’t have to stick with green, white and red for this holiday season. You could opt for non-traditional colours. Instead of the typical red-and-green palette, mix metals with retroelements.

Go with Vintage
Make use of your favourite antiques by styling them for the holiday season. Adding some rustic décor to your Christmas tree or shelves can make your decor stand out.

Or Modern
You could also opt for more modern ornaments. Give your tree a fun, minimalist twist with geometric gold adornments.

Get Lit
Instead of a garland, dress up a mantel with a mix of candlesticks; tall, small, mercury glass, crystal. Instead of ivory candles, opt for red, cranberry, and shades of green. Candles give a Christmas old-fashioned charm, but to avoid a serious fire hazard, use candle lights instead of the real deal.

Decorate Every Corner in your Home
Every nook and cranny might need some sprucing up this season. Don’t reserve your best Christmas décor for the living room, let the festivities overflow into every part of the house. Add sparkle to unexpected places. Deviate from the norm when it comes to hanging your outdoor lights. Try draping them around a trellis, birdbaths and other landscaping features to illuminate your yard — not just your house. Where possible, opt for solar power.

Go Natural
Take inspiration from nature for your decorating scheme. Use fresh evergreen boughs, garlands and wreaths. It will give your home a beautiful natural look, and it smells heavenly.

String Up Bells
Bannisters can be tricky to decorate. For a light, airy, and cheerful look, try stringing red and white paper bells together with fishing line.

Play with Patterns
You don’t have to limit yourself to match the ribbon to the paper. Put polka dots and checks on a flowery filigree, like this one.

These simple tips are sure to get your home in the Christmas and have you singing ‘jingle bells’ where ever you might find yourself.
