Top tips for decorating your home this Christmas

We couldn’t ignore this gloriously festive time of year and share some of our favorite home decor designs. Along with top tips on how to recreate these looks by visiting some of Dubai’s wonderful local businesses.

We just love the minimalist Scandinavian style that compliments modern apartment living here in Dubai. It also resonates a very simplistic and clean style, leaving a few pennies in your pocket for xmas treats!

Many of the items you’ll see in our below inspo are not difficult to find. You may have many of these items in your home already. It’s the way they’re presented and displayed that makes the difference.

Greenery (being Pantone’s 2017 colour of the year) is the perfect accompaniment to the festive season and one of the simplest fresh florals to work with. They have longevity and are very easy to maintain.

We start off our showcase of top tips for decorating your home this Christmas with some pretty wall hangings. Perfect backdrop for your windows or bare walls, we just love the simplictity, we might have to keep them up for longer!
