The build-up to Christmas is almost as exciting as the big day itself and what better way to get in the mood than jazzing up your home with some gorgeous seasonal shades.

Whatever room you’re sprinkling with festive cheer, fabulous furniture and fittings in the rich reds and mossy greens of Christmas instantly add a warm and merry feel to your home.

Red is instantly warming and seeing red furniture or accessories will give you a lift as soon as you walk through the door, particularly when it’s cold outside.

For a quick and easy Christmassy pop of colour, accessorise your sofa with scatter cushions varying shades of red, such as Barker and Stonehouse’s comfy Jemma cushion in textured, woven bands of scorching scarlet.

Red candles lining your window sills and garlands with red berries draped over a fireplace or around doorframe will also add an instantly festive feel without the need for tinsel.

But if you’d rather something a little larger that still oozes sophistication, we suggest the Barker and Stonehouse plush Dolce rug in red, lovingly hand-woven and hand-washed for extra toe-sinking softness.

For an ultra-modern look we love the Ligne Roset Ploum settee in radiant red. It adds a vibrant feel to any room and, with its quirky, curved-style seat; any position is comfortable when curling up and enjoying your favourite festive film.

For a more traditional addition, we recommend the beautifully-crafted Blake chair which comes in a gorgeous moss-green Torino hide. Finished with hand studding, a fluted back and solid wood ball-and-claw style feet, this chair is the epitome of elegance.

If the bedroom is calling out for a festive touch, treat yourself with some beautiful bedroom furniture then add luxurious bedding in rich wine or pale gold shades – perfect for adding warmth and Christmas character.

Keep your options open with the reversible Red Paisley double quilt bed cover which features two luxurious fabrics in either a paisley or plain pattern with a stylish, scalloped edge.

Transform your bedroom into a chic boutique with the stunning hand-crafted Valentina bedframe in a deep burgundy. Boasting an oversized-button headboard and convenient storage space, this velvety-soft bedstead delivers instant glamour.

Alternatively, if you’re feeling flush, spoil yourself with Barker and Stonehouse’s Lyddington bedroom set, consisting of a hand-cast bed, wardrobe and bedside table made from reclaimed wood its perfect for providing some rustic, seasonal charm.

So, whether it’s a small pop of colour in the form of a comfy cushion or a brand-spanking new set of bedroom furniture, Christmassy colours will give your home a warming, festive palette.
