It is true that we are only in October, and that there are still two months until Christmas, but we all know that this month marks the starting point of great traditions and celebrations. In Venezuela for example, people begin to play the bagpipes everywhere, filling towns with joy and happiness marking the occasion that the festivities have truly begun. Other countries ready themselves by painting the walls of their homes and renovate their house before the end of the year as a good affirmation to attract good energy to the house, and ensure it is a special place.

During this time, some people take more drastic measures and knock down a wall or two to bring in more natural light into their home, enlarge a back room, or create a more welcoming space. Individuals, when renovating, generally want to make good use of their space and resources, but often have no idea where to start. Furthermore, they commonly do not know what materials to use or who to contact to provide good ideas about current trends. If you find yourself in that situation, or if you are now curious to read on, I invite you to check out the following ideas to better help you utilise your resources, and make your house a unique place this Christmas!

The classics never go out of style, we hear this all the time here at homify, and it is definitely an absolute truth. A classic is generally regarded as an item worthy of imitation. This provides greater acceptability of the piece over time and across generations. In this case, the classic wooden furniture is accompanied by modern amenities such as an upholstered chair finish, other minor details and the decorative lamp. The space is super modern and chic. 

If you have little free time this year, take care of the Christmas decorations by looking for a practical and chic style, minimal, yet classic!

DIY: ideas that make the impossible, possible!

Sometimes we just need a little creativity to achieve impressive décor looks at a low cost. DIY (Do It Yourself) is easy to accomplish and can help you impress your guests during these festive holidays. Use recycled materials such as cardboard and paper to save unnecessary costs. This simple look with peanut shells and cardboard tree cut-outs is a really easy and wonderful look that will go with any table decoration.

When we have doubts about which colour to use, it is often preferable to be on the safe side and choose neutral colours.  White is always a good choice, as it provides reflection for lighting, creating spaciousness within the domestic area. Moreover, it provides a calm and serene atmosphere. In this example, the white wall has been decorated with a black mural, creating the perfect balance of hues. This decoration is ideal for the whole year and would look perfect accompanied with typical Christmas accessories.
