Country Christmas decorating ideas

Hang a wreath

Use shimmering baubles and vintage bird decorations to transform a simple faux pine wreath.

Opt for a bold runner

Warm up intense cool blues with reds, oranges and pinks. Try a vibrant folk-art runner and exquisite, understated Christmas trimmings.

Make the most of textures

Here, rich blue velvet on the sofa is teamed with a plush rug underfoot. Reflect winter light with an arrangement of mirrors.

Mix and match furniture

For relaxed country entertaining, team mix-and-match white dining chairs, a simple trestle table and ice blue accessories.

Add a Christmas wreath

Add sparkle to a chair back with a wreath studded with tiny crystal beads.

Bake festive biscuits

Make delicious bird biscuits and hang as pretty tree decorations. Find out how to make these biscuits.

Add a pop of colour

Icy blues look beautiful on distressed furniture, on candles in glass holders and as a fine stripe in wallpaper.

Choose a fancy stocking

A homemade stocking, set against beautiful foliage and silver Christmas decorations, makes an attractive display hanging from a wall shelf.

Decorate with candles

Don't forget the bedroom - line festive tealights and pillar candles in front of a beautiful mix of red and cream roses for a decadent feel.

Create a festive outdoor space

Create the perfect place to escape for a breath of fresh air with an outdoor bench, throws and cushions.
