1. Light it up!

There's nothing that gets the Christmas spirit going better than a room filled with sparkling, twinkling lights. Fairy lights, of course are a must. Wrap them around the mantlepiece, the stairs, shelving and tree! You can also deviate from the fairy lights and go for lanterns and candles to give your Christmas décor a beautiful warm glow.

Fairy lights are an essential, but go that step further with your lighting and get some marquee lights! Get your own custom marquee light with Metal and Lights – like the moose one above. Not only is it great for Christmas, but it'll come in handy for special events (or just to give your room that magical glow throughout the year).

2. Choose your theme and stick with it

Before you go crazy with your décor, think about the theme you're going for. If you want a chic and classy theme, go for a clean gold. If you want something a little more traditional, go for the green and red. Once you decide your theme, adorn your home with theme-fitting ornaments and trinkets!

3. Don't forget the little Christmas details

It's easy to decorate the tree and throw up some lights... but the cherry on top of a Christmas-ready home is in the small details. Some people don't bother with things like Christmas-themed toilet paper rolls and napkins patterned with reindeers, but small details like that really reaffirms that holiday spirit.
