Five festive tips to take your luxury living room to the next level this Christmas

With Christmas fast approaching, now is the perfect time to start preparing your home for the festivities. Whether you’re having a quaint Christmas with just family or having guests for Christmas dinner, spending time with those you love is at the heart of any Christmas celebration. Read on for our five festive tips to take your luxury living room to the next level this year.

The living room in particular tends to be at the centre of it all; it’s important to have that cosy space where everyone can relax and enjoy the merriment together. Finding the right balance to create a festive environment without cluttering the spatial flow of the room can be a rather delicate task. Well, have no fear – we’re here for you with five expert tips on turning your luxury living room into a timelessly classy winter wonderland this holiday season.

1. Comfort is key

A quality sofa is arguably the most important part of any living room, and this is especially true at Christmas. What better feeling is there than sinking into a warm sofa on a cold winter’s day? Or perhaps even better, snuggling up with the whole family to watch your favourite Christmas movie? A deluxe sofa with plush upholstery is essential for this.

‘A good sofa is the foundation of a relaxing living space,’ says Juliette Thomas, founder and Director of Juliettes Interiors. ‘Comfort and relaxation are synonymous, and finding the right balance between class and cosiness is key to creating a space where people can relax in a luxurious environment.’

Adding blankets and cushions is an easy way to elevate not only the cosiness factor, but also the appearance of your sofa. Try draping a throw across your sofa – this simple trick is an effortless way of making your space look so much more put together.

When curating your living space, you should never have to sacrifice quality, style, or comfort. Here are some of our top picks for a high-end sofa that will elevate your living room this Christmas:

2. Incorporate a festive colour palette

It’s no secret that red, green, and white often tend to be the colours we associate with Christmas. Changing up the decor of your living room to incorporate these colours is an easy way of injecting a bit of Christmas cheer into any interior.

Green velvet sofas have been a huge interior design trend over the past few years, and for good reason; they’re chic, understated, and complement a variety of interior aesthetics.

Investing in a luxurious piece of furniture like this in time for the holidays is a great way of creating a sophisticated Christmas-themed living space, as the colour of the sofa co-ordinates with your Christmas tree to ensure a natural flow of space throughout the room.

Scattering red accents throughout your living room will also provide an eye-catching pop of colour while keeping with the Christmas theme. Furthermore, it will add some much needed warmth to your living room’s colour palette to ensure that the space feels as cosy as possible.

3. Go for gold

Gold accents are another way of adding subtle warmth to the colour palette of your living room. Gold metallic accents are perhaps the easiest way to elevate the appearance of any interior, giving the space a hint of opulence that is sure to impress any guest in your home.

Admittedly, there’s a fine line between classy and gaudy when it comes to gold decor. If plastic tinsel garlands aren’t quite what you’re looking for (we don’t blame you), try opting for something a little more understated, such as furniture with a golden frame, or lighting with gold accents.

4. Light it up

Christmas is known for its twinkling lights, and everyone looks forward to seeing the entire country light up at this time of year. Recreating that feeling in your living room is the ideal way to create a festive wonderland in your home this Christmas.

A bit of sparkle is necessary to sprinkle a little magic into your living space at this time of year. Opting for light fixtures that feature glass, crystal, or metallic accents that glimmer, as they catch the light, are perfect for this. You may also wish to add some candles – or lighting with candle-esque details – as another easy way to make the space feel cosier.

Juliettes Interiors’ top tip: Ambient lighting can bring a certain warmth to any room that will allow the space to feel like the perfect cosy environment for family and guests to feel closer to one another during the holiday season. Lighting with red glass accents will diffuse a warm glow throughout the space, creating the perfect environment to relax into when you come home from a day out in the cold.

5. Establish the flow

Finding a way to co-ordinate the decor of your living room to other spaces in your house – for instance, your dining room – will ensure that the flow of space between rooms is as seamless and tasteful as possible.

Here are some examples of co-ordinating dining and living room chairs from our collections:

Incorporating matching or similar decorations in multiple rooms of the house will establish a natural flow, and your guests are sure to be impressed by your interior design skills if you do so.
