Christmas Countdown: 5 weeks to go!


With just five weeks to go until Christmas, it’s time to start making arrangements for your guests. Whether it will be friends, family or loved ones, give them the 5* experience and make sure they have a comfortable stay this holiday season.

You might be dressing up your spare room, or converting the sofa into a makeshift bed, but use whatever space you have available to your advantage and ensure their stay is one to remember.

Living Room Rug and Fireplace Keep It Cosy

On a cold Christmas evening, it’s the little details that make all the difference. Make sure your guests are warm and cosy, curled up under a soft throw, or by the fire on a hand-woven wool rug. Choosing some gorgeous new accessories, like a rug or throw, is an easy and relatively inexpensive way to give your home that special touch, ready for your guests at Christmastime.

Make It Comfortable

Indulge your guests and give them a Christmas they won’t forget with a deluxe new sofa, or bed, for them to kick back on. Giving your spare room a makeover will truly make your visitors feel first-class this Christmas and a comfortable new bed will be the icing on the cake! Alternatively, you could update your living space with a chic new sofa, something for the whole family to enjoy as you relax together this holiday season.

Create an Inviting Atmosphere

Whether you’re giving your home a remodel, or just a quick face lift, choose the right lighting for your living spaces and create an inviting atmosphere to unwind in. For your dining space you’ll want an overhead light to illuminate the room whilst you dine on a dark evening. Depending on the style of your home, choose a traditional fixture or a contemporary chandelier to give the room an exquisite finish. For multipurpose rooms, like living spaces and bedrooms, you’ll want different light fixtures, such as table and floor lamps, so you can amply adjust the lighting for the mood. Contemporary Lamps

Christmas is a time for giving, sharing and rejoicing in the company of our most loved ones. Plan ahead and make sure your living space is organised and adequately furnished to accommodate company. Your guests will really appreciate the lengths you’ve gone to and preparing beforehand will ensure everything runs smoothly; leaving you to laze and relish in the Christmas spirit!
