Our definitive guide to adding festive cheer to every room

The festive holiday season is on its way – so get planning how you’ll turn your home into the perfect Christmas retreat for family and friends. We’ve been wowed by the selection at Sainsbury’s, which has come up trumps with some truly wonderful decorations.

Whether you're a stickler for traditional Christmas prints and fabulously festive colours or want to give your home a magical winter wonderland makeover with snowy whites, frosted silvers and faux foliage – you’re in for a treat.

If you’re lucky enough to have an open fire or wood-burner, your home will already be filled with a rustic woodland scent but there’s always room for more festive aromas – think spiced pot pourri or cinnamon stick decorations.

Another easy way to instantly transform your living room is to introduce new soft furnishings – traditional checks will add a much-needed burst of winter brightness and faux fur is bang on-trend – so treat yourself to some super soft cushions or snug throws for extra cosiness.

Creating warm lighting is key too so, as well as lighting the fire, stock up on festive candles and candle-holders. We’re particularly fond of the impressive silver reindeer candle holder – a pair will add a touch of grandeur to your mantelpiece. Add seasonal greenery, hang a few rustic pine cone decorations and finish with a beautiful indoor wreath bursting with berries.

From brilliant lighting to fuss-free frosted foliage, we’ve rounded up our favourites to make your home look spectacular this Christmas...
