Winter warmers – Christmas style ideas for every home

02nd Dec 2022

That magical time of year is almost here again, and what better way to get into the festive spirit than sharing some top Christmas home styling tips.

Whether your home has a modern or traditional style, there’s a decoration for every taste.

Viola Homes offers a selection of homes to suit your needs, from growing families to those looking to fly the nest, downsize or relocate to the countryside or seaside. We offer a range of buying options, including outright sale, shared ownership and rent to buy, to help make your dreams of owning your ideal home a reality. Our developments of stylish new-build homes are within reach for everyone.

Make the most of your space!

Larger, family homes have the extra space to display a big, glittering Christmas tree. At our Mill Meadows development in Filey, you can find The Seashore, a three-bedroom detached home perfect for growing families. The spacious open plan kitchen and dining area lends itself perfectly to modern living, so a contemporary style of Christmas décor would suit this home perfectly. As many people view the kitchen as the heart of the home, adding festive decorations here will create a focal point for family and guests. Keep the style sleek by adding a neutral or wicker tree skirt, some warm white fairy lights and a holly arrangement centrepiece on the table for that extra wow-factor.

Also at Mill Meadows you’ll find the Coral, a two-bedroom bungalow with a detached single garage, ideal for smaller families. French doors lead to the rear garden, and the spacious open plan lounge and dining area is perfect for relaxing and entertaining. Make the most of your outdoor space by choosing some fun, light-up garden ornaments, or use coloured lights to decorate your trees and hedges. A smaller, pre-lit tree is the ideal option for taking up less storage space and is quick and easy to put up and away. Transform your French doors into a chic Christmassy focal point by adding a foliage garland with lights.

Apartment living

Apartment living has many benefits, including the convenience of having town centre amenities on your doorstep. You can use some savvy space-saving ideas to help you feel festive whilst still being practical. Choose a table-top tree, and for extra ease, choose a pre-decorated option. Free up floor space by choosing hanging decorations such as wreaths and garlands, or make the most of the large windows by creating a display using lights and snow spray. For apartment-friendly exterior decor, select a Christmas-themed doormat for a touch of festive fun.
