How to: style a beautiful festive console table

We all want a beautiful home, and at Christmas time, welcoming guests into a gorgeous space becomes all the more important. We're here to help de-mystify decorating (at Christmas, and for the rest of the year too!) with simple steps to styling success. Follow along as our talented stylists Allira and Jess walk you through their top tips for beautiful rooms that anyone can achieve at home. First up? How to style a beautiful console table with all the Christmas trimmings.  

Step 1 - Start with art
Adding a piece of art to your console is a great way to anchor your arrangement and create interest through a different height. You can hang your artwork on the wall above your table - at eye level generally works best - or simply lean it against the wall.

Step 2 - Add a Christmas wreath
A wreath brings an instant festive feel to your space and there are so many to choose from these days to suit your Christmas decorating style. If you're feeling extra creative, why not create a beautiful floral wreath like we've done here? It's an easy and fun way to add extra personality to your decor and to spice up a store-bought faux wreath.

Step 3 - Place some fresh flowers in a vase
If you can, choose a vase that ties in with the rest of your decor. We've gone with a muted, burnished gold vase which compliments the earthy olives and dusty pink tones in our space.

Step 4 - Layer with decor
Add your favourite decor pieces - it's even ok to re-introduce decor you display year-round - like candles, favourite books, trinkets and bowls, and tweak the placement of each item until your table has a nice sense of depth and balance.

Step 5 - Complete the look with festive finishing touches
It wouldn't be Christmas without some holiday-inspired decor! We've gone with some fun gold glitter pinecone ornaments (it's ok to think outside the box and use ornaments meant for the tree in vignettes like this one) and we've also added some gifts to the bottom shelf of the console - it's the perfect spot to display or store extra gifts if you're short on space!
