The year-end holiday season and Christmas time is all about spending time with your loved ones and taking that well deserved break after a long year. For that, make your home as welcoming and festive so you can enjoy the season as you should. These home decor items could be just what you need to put your home in peak festive mood.
01 MAKE IT SMELL FESTIVE
A great smelling space can bring with it some therapeutic effects, especially when the scent evokes a good memory or creates a relaxing atmosphere. There’s nothing that truly spells Christmas quite like the scent of pine needles greeting you every morning as you make your way down to the living room. A live pine tree is the way to go – especially if you’re aiming to be putting up a Christmas tree – but if you don’t want to deal with shedding pine needles and clean up come January, Diptyque’s Protective Pine scented candle from their limited edition Winter collection in 2019 is a suitable alternative. A mixture of Siberian fir, balsam fir, cedar, basil and sage, the candle brings you straight to the winter fields of dark green pine trees. As per Diptyque style as well, the candle is decorated in gorgeous illustrations by Olaf Hajek who included imagery from nature inspired by myths, folklore and legends, each telling it’s own story.
