Less isn’t always more for interiors when it comes to Christmas. When you want to transform your home into a magical grotto, festive home accessories are the finishing touches you need.

Whether you want to go tasteful and wintery, or full out Christmas kitsch, we’ve got the styles to complete your interior.

We’ve got our top picks of the must have festive home accessories to bring in the festive season in style.

Doormats

Often overlooked, a doormat is an easy way to bring some cheer to your home. As the first thing someone sees when entering your home, a doormat is an essential part of your decor to switch up for a seasonal version.

For a tasteful and magical option, go for a style like this Christmas Reindeer doormat.

The natural coir fabric makes this a neutral and minimal style to bring some Christmas cheer to your doorstep. Made with a vinyl backing, this style is hard wearing and long lasting.

If you’d like to opt for a more classically Christmassy option, then the Christmas penguins doormat might be the festive home accessory for you.

This doormat offers a cute and kitsch approach to Christmas decor. Also, it isn’t overtly festive so can last you across the winter months, through to Spring. This style is made from a natural coir fabric too, and features a charming black border to frame the penguin motif.

Throws

Nothing says Christmas like a cosy night away from the cold, snuggled up watching films. Which means, the best festive home accessory to invest in is a snuggly blanket or throw.

December brings festivities and joy, but also an icy wind and cold weather. A throw is the perfect remedy to that, and it can be made even better by having a seasonal option.

A throw like this Jackfruit throw by Sanderson in a fig olive green is a subtle way to bring some Christmas cheer to your interior.

The classic forest green works well with the Christmas tree firs and Father Christmas red, while also working past the festive season into January. We adore the geometric shapes to add a fashion forward touch to your living room movie marathon.

With a 100% cotton sateen finish, this is the opulent finishing touch to your Christmas interior.

Bedding

Nothing says Christmas excitement like the early sleep on the 24th of December, waiting for the big day.

So there’s no better place to bring some yuletide joy with some festive home accessories than to your bedroom. A festive bedding set is a simple way to change up your interior for Christmas.

A charming option to go for is the Cath Kidston Christmas Tree bedding.

Featuring the infamous attention to detail of Cath Kidston pieces, this bedding set features a Christmas snowscape in an illustrative style. Featuring Christmas trees, children playing and endless festive artwork. With the candy red and white stripe reverse offering a perfect finishing touch to the beautiful set.

On top of the design, it has a 200 thread count made from 100% cotton. With a soft to touch feel that is irresistible to cuddle up in on a cold December morning.

If you’d prefer a slightly darker base for your festive home accessories, choose this Polar Bears Christmas bedding set to transform your bedroom.

Designed by Sara Miller, who is renowned for her playful illustrations and vibrant colours – this is a statement piece to bring some festive joy.

This set is soft to touch, constructed from cotton percale. Featuring a polar bear family set against a navy, star filled sky.

​​Cushions

An easy way to bring in a touch of the festive into your interiors beyond tinsel and Christmas trees, is using cushions. Cushions are an easy addition to interiors. They can easily bring a theme or colour into a room by a simple placement on a sofa, armchair or bed.

This works well for Christmas, if you prefer the subtle and classic way to decorate, over full on Christmas grotto.

The Cath Kidston range offers a Festive Poem Script cushion, to incorporate into your interior for a delightful seasonal message.

Featuring the Twelve Days Of Christmas lyrics and adjoining yuletide figures, we adore this stylish festive home accessory. Perfect for creating a less traditional winter wonderland in your home, without overloading your interior.

Rugs

If you are of the belief that with Christmas, it’s time to go all out, it may be that you choose to invest in a festive rug.

Similarly to cushions, a festive rug is an easy way to bring in seasonal themes and shades. With a rug being temporary, you can easily remove it once the festive season is over, and store it away for next year with your other Christmas decorations.

A stylish and festive option is to go for a red rug, like this Louis De Poortere Medallion designer rug.

This is a flatweave style, so is perfect for layering over carpets, rugs or even a hardwood floor. It’s very versatile, and easy to store away – should you wish to.

The medallion design is suitably festive, with intricate detailing for the ultimate stylish festive home accessory. 

Featuring the finest cotton chenille, with hemmed edges and a traditional style. This is the addition you’ll want to sit under a dining table or living room for any festive hosting you’re planning this December. If you want more ideas about interior ideas for festive hosting, check out our guide.
