    Influencer Jessica Gibson gives us expert tips about how to create the perfect festive interior

    The Christmas season is nearly upon us, and it’s officially time to start getting your home into the festive spirit.

    Jess Gibson, successful blogger and founder of The Travelista, understands that Christmas is an exciting time to start thinking about interiors, especially when Dunelm have all the trends and trimmings to make your space truly stylish.

    ‘It’s my first Christmas as a homeowner and it’s really exciting to think I can do anything I like with the house,’ Jess told us when discussing her favourite pieces from Dunelm’s Christmas collections. ‘The living room will be my main focus for festive decorations but I would like to try to add extra cosy touches around the house with faux-fur rugs, a thicker throw on the beds and cosy blankets in the living room.’

    When it comes to holiday entertaining though, the Festive Charm range has everything a hostess needs to create the perfect soiree setting. Think gold accents, opulent textures and art deco-style glassware, all created with modern luxury in mind.

    ‘I’d definitely mix and match themes to fit with the decor in different rooms of my house,’ Jess revealed. ‘I would use items from the Festive Charm collection to add a golden touch to the living room. I particularly love the peacock-feather wreath.’

    Treat friends and family to festive fizz served in the range’s gold ombré champagne flutes, before taking time out to adorn your tree with Festive Charm’s sparkly faceted stars, sequin baubles and geometric ornaments.

    ‘One of my favourite childhood memories at Christmas time was decorating the Christmas tree,’ Jess told us. ‘We always put the tree up on the 12th December and me and my sisters would get to pick the baubles we wanted to add. At the end we would put chocolate decorations on the tree, which was always the best bit!’

    Discover Jess’s exclusive picks from the Festive Charm collection which can be found in one of Dunelm’s 162 stores – or shop the massive range online where you can reserve and collect in-store.
