When people think of luxury homes in Essex, they may think of glitz and glam but there is no reason you can’t incorporate this into your new build in any location. Christmas is all about adding a hint of shine and sparkle into your décor, and traditional Christmas decorations like tinsel and baubles are definitely back on trend. If you prefer something a little more rustic, wooden ornaments and classic natural Christmas trees will leave your living space feeling snug and homely.

Home cooking

Nothing makes a house more of a home than the smell of fresh cooking wafting through the rooms. Christmas is the best time to cook up some tasty dishes such as a roast turkey dinner, hearty soup or delicious mince pies. When you have some spare time, you could even try baking festive gingerbread biscuits that have a strong traditional scent and will leave your home smelling delicious.

Soft Furnishing

When you’re cosying up on winter evenings, the best way to feel warm is with thick blankets and fluffy cushions. These are simple additions to your house at Christmas that can really make it feel more homely and inviting. Consider items such as fur rugs and cushions to add a hint of style but also festive feeling into your new home.

With just a few simple changes and touches your new build house will quickly feel lived in and comforting when arriving home from a long winter’s day.
