With the festive period just around the corner, it's time to think about planning your holiday decor!
With the kitchen being the heart of the home, you'll no doubt spend a lot of time in it this season, whether it's baking Christmas brownie recipes (stay tuned for a delicious recipe we’ll be sharing soon!), wrapping gifts or catching up with loved ones, magic memories will fill the kitchen over the coming months.
This makes it the perfect room to decorate and here at Gemini we believe there should be no limit to your creativity when it comes to choosing your Christmas style and festive decorations… Though where do you start when styling your kitchen for Christmas?
A great way to add some Christmas cheer to your kitchen is with the use of greenery and foliage. Hand-tied foliage is always aesthetically pleasing and is a wonderful way of bringing an organic, natural touch of Christmas to your kitchen while berries are always a subtle yet natural way to introduce a hint of colour in your kitchen, particularly successful in those all-white classic kitchen designs.
You can create a more luxurious look with garlands, wreaths and other touches of festive foliage and colourful ornaments. Consider draping your fresh Christmas garlands above your cabinets and hanging wreaths on doors or in windows.
As you decorate, remember to take advantage of the space within your kitchen. Strategically placing decorations is the key to success… When choosing the spot for your decorations remember the room still needs to remain functional for the busy Christmas period.
Whether it's a Christmas tree, gingerbread houses, or a Christmas candle, your kitchen table or island space can be the perfect spot to display your Christmas kitchen décor and make a statement. You can also place a small Christmas tree on your kitchen worktop to create an extra cosy feel as well as a feature in your kitchen.
Another perfect place for your festive flair is your open shelving. You can display your favourite Christmas decorations as styling ornaments, sitting beside kitchen essentials among candles, cookbooks and other decorations to create a seasonal-style spot with a festive feel. Christmas flower arrangements can also be added around your crockery and vases, and festive greenery can be interspersed with candles, ornaments, or fairy lights.
Adding a touch of seasonal sparkle through the simple addition of fairy lights, strewn across your shelving, hanging on windowsills, or attached to cabinets will instantly create an atmosphere of festive cheer. The twinkling glow of light will instantly bring a hint of holiday cheer to darker afternoons and evenings spent cooking and entertaining.
Decorate with red, gold and green accessories to add a classic Christmas interior design style. Introducing holly, foliage and greenery will ensure a traditional and sophisticated style in your space this holiday season. Add natural texture and warmth to your kitchen by decorating glass vases with baubles, fir branches, and pinecones, the perfect elements for a cosy centrepiece on your kitchen island.
If a simple, subtle Christmas design is more your style, you can incorporate wooden features and minimalist decor for a delicate yet festive interior style. Smaller Christmas kitchen accessories can tuck into open shelves creating festive features in your space. Embracing natural materials helps to add softness and texture to your kitchen.
Adding cosy touches like candles and fairy lights will help to enhance the festive feel. Fill the room with scented candles with notes of cinnamon, clove and orange to warm the air for that classic Christmas scent. Whether it's a Christmas tree, gingerbread houses, or a Christmas centrepiece, the kitchen table or island is an ideal place to display creative Christmas kitchen décor.
