If you are eager to host your own classic Christmas gathering this festive season, decorating your apartment is one of the best ways to achieve that unforgettable traditional Christmas feeling. In this guide, we’ll share our favourite traditional Christmas decorating ideas to ensure that your Vertus apartment is as cosy as can be this December.
Classic Christmas Decor Ideas
If you’re wondering how to decorate your apartment for Christmas, interior design experts recommend starting with classic, tried-and-true methods. The first and most important of all Xmas decoration ideas is identifying your colour scheme. Red, white, green, and gold are traditional for this time of the year and can be modernised with the addition of a few extra accent tones, like brass, chrome, copper, and silver.
There are a few must-have accessories for your traditional Christmas décor, too. Invest in a stately Christmas tree and take inspiration from traditional Christmas tree decorating ideas with some cheerful twinkling lights and tree baubles – think blown glass globes, shining reindeer, miniature wrapped presents, delicate birds, nutcrackers, and, of course, an angel or star tree-topper to complete the look. Consider hanging up a few Christmas stockings, too, along with plenty of candles to create a cosy and inviting atmosphere.
Decorating Tips for Studio and Large Apartments
When it comes to decorating a studio apartment for Christmas, there are a few tips you can follow to ensure that your living space looks festive without feeling overwhelmed. Start by focusing on apartment decor with plenty of white and silver accents. This helps create the appearance of a brighter and more expansive space. Glass ornaments and accessories reflect more ambient light, helping to create an airy and attractive setting, even in a compact one bedroom apartment.
If you have a two or three-bedroom Vertus apartment, you can spread the festive cheer by decorating not only your communal and dining spaces, but your entire home – including your balcony. Achieve a traditional Christmas feel with a large Christmas tree, plenty of Christmas lights, and a few statement accessories, such as large hanging stars, dining table wreaths and centrepieces, and plenty of candelabras and candles in various sizes for a classic look.
