Christmas is just around the corner, and with that in mind we've come up with a few ideas to help you get into the festive spirit! Whether your style is bold and bright or soft and subtle, these ideas for decorating your front door are sure to inspire...
Break tradition by placing Christmas trees outside your front door and decorate them as much or as little as you wish! Coated in snow they look very festive and appealing to all.
Mix and Match
Creating a colour scheme for your doorway is a fabulously fun way of adding charisma to your home. Guests will feel festive before they have set foot inside!
Big and Bold
A grand entrance deserves grand decorations, and these pillars entwined with garlands are no exception! Cinnamon sticks, dried fruit and bundles of red berries add plenty of Christmas character.
If you prefer to take a more subtle approach, then a simple wreath is always a great way of adding instant Christmas charm. Pared with pastel colours, they can be given a fresh, modern feel.
Light The Way
Welcome guests into your home by lining your garden path with an array of candles and flowers. This creates interest and looks simply stunning!
