How to decorate your Christmas tree depending on your interior style


It can be hard to know how to decorate your house at Christmas in a way that is cohesive with the rest of

your interiors.


That’s why the experts at M&S Home are sharing how to decorate like a professional with Christmas tree ideas and tips for every style.

Enchanted Forest 

“Choosing a theme before you begin decorating is a clever way to create a professional-looking Christmas tree. Why not try an opulent enchanted forest theme? Illuminate your tree with warm white fairy lights, adding modern metallics and deep blue, green and grey accents for a contemporary look with a touch of luxe. Playing with different textures is a great way to elevate your theme – try mixing glitter, glass and matte baubles. Forest-themed decorations like leaves and toadstools add a whimsical finishing touch.”

“Top tip: Start by hanging the lights, whether you go for the more traditional horizontal round-and-around approach or the expert-approved up-and-down method popularised on TikTok.”


Kitchen Disco

“Christmas is all about fun, and decorating your tree with bright hues and plenty of sparkles is a sure-fire way to get the party started. Pack your tree with personality by combining a vibrant, disco-themed colour palette – we’re loving pinks, greens and purples – with quirky details. Dazzling glitter Christmas decorations add another layer of interest. Finish your tree with some extra-special pieces – you’ll find fun felt characters including a dancing Santa and a hula-hooping hamster in our Christmas decorations range this year – to give your theme a final flourish. Don’t stop at the tree – discover festive inspiration for the whole house, too.”

Top tip: A tree skirt hides the legs of an artificial tree or the trunk of a real one – choose either a skirt that’s a continuation of your theme or that blends into the background.”


Silent Night 

“In a palette of calming, earthy neutrals, our Cosy Retreat collection is inspired by the remote Icelandic scenery. Want to get the look on your Christmas tree? Choose tactile decorations inspired by nature. Add some of our coastal-inspired baubles, such as seals, penguins and jellyfish, for a unique yet sophisticated festive theme that’s sure to have your guests taking notes.”

“Top tip: When sticking to a neutral colour palette on your tree, take the opportunity to play around with texture. Try incorporating decorations made from rustic ceramics, felt and linen.”


Classic Heritage 

“Love a traditional Christmas decorating theme? Our Classic Heritage collection features mid-century-influenced Christmas baubles, vintage-style appliqués and lots of tactile velvet finishes. Nothing says Christmas quite like red and gold baubles, and we’ve given these classic colours a contemporary update with rich tones of burgundy and antique brass. Start by wrapping your tree in warm fairy lights to create a cosy feel, then combine classic ornaments with opulent, regal touches like our crown decoration for a touch of sparkle.”

Top tip: Using an artificial Christmas tree? Before you get out the decorations, it’s worth spending some time fluffing the branches, spreading them out one by one to make the tree look fuller.”
