Festive Styling

Updated: May 13, 2019

The festive season has almost arrived, reminders of Noel and his imminent arrival begin to pop up everywhere. 

Now is the time to look at freshening up your home before the Christmas period truly arrives. A coat of paint works wonders in transforming a tired looking interior in readiness for the festivities the next few months will bring. The fresh look of a new paint scheme provides a stunning backdrop to the Christmas and New Year décor. The right colour will make any Christmas and New Year scheme pop not just for the festive season but for years to come.

Neutral or dark grey greens work in well with all styles of festive décor from traditional red, white and greens to neutral rustic and colourful Christmas schemes. I‘m loving the interior colours from Taubmans’ range in “Straun Grey”, “Arctic Ice” and “Ice Princess,” as well as Haymes' “Minimalist Range 1 to 7” and "Pale Mushroom range 1 to 7”. If you are unsure, try the colour out with a sample pot for under $10, or enlist our Colour Consultation Service only $95 to select the perfect colour! This service comes with a cash back amount of $50 off purchases, and three sample pots. Of course if your current paint scheme is still fresh and working well, break out the paint brush and celebrate the festive season with custom DIY Christmas decorations! Some fun ideas include:

  • Candy coloured painted shells

  • Pine cones painted up as tropical pineapples or gleaming metallic sheens

  • Driftwood decorations in metallic shimmering neutral tones to pastel colours

Coordinate your décor to suit your scheme.
