Style your home to create a laid-back, textural look this Christmas

Tired of the traditional red and green festive decor? Be inspired by the refreshing beach-chic style to give your home a fresh new look this season.

Instead of the frumpy and formal Christmas styling, consider creating a sultry and laid-back atmosphere with decorative accents in natural textures and warm, earthy colours. This absolutely casual and quirky look is especially ideal for homes along the waterfront, with salty breezes blowing through, adding to the charm of this alternative to the usual Scandi style.
