Four chic festive pieces for the true Christmas home decor obsessive you are.

Thanks to our brand partner, Swarovski

There’s nothing quite like this time of year. The weather is warming up and you can feel Christmas in the air everywhere you go.

Everyone is just a little bit more festive and cheerful, and people can’t wait to catch up with their family and friends in their homes over the holiday period. Well, most of us!

If you’re the entertaining type – or even just a festive ornament lover – it’s the perfect time to start adding more festive feels to your home, along with that gorgeous Christmas tree of yours.

A tree may be the centre of it all, but it’s also about the table, the decorations, the lights, and those sparkly finishing touches that make your home feel extra special.

To help you out, we’ve rounded up four of the best themes from trawling Instagram for Christmas inspiration, and paired those themes with items we’re not-so-secretly coveting from Swarovski’s Holiday Collection.

Sleek and Christmas Chic

Sleek and Christmas Chic decor is perfect for anyone who loves a luxe, minimalist look.

Think a pared-down table setting, subtle strings of fairy lights, and a few fancy touches.

A simple mix of gold and silver decorations, with a hero piece like this Annual Edition Ornament 2018 from Swarovski ($119), will make your tree one to remember.
