We haven’t had any real snow in Berlin, but that hasn’t stopped me from turning my home into a winter wonderland. You all know how absolutely obsessed I am with Christmas and home decor, so decorating for the holidays is something I get extremely excited about every year. This December, I decided to show you the small changes I make to turn my normal interior into a winter wonderland.

1: Change up the Artwowrk

One of the easiest ways to bring some holiday cheer (or change up the interior vibes of any room for that matter) is to choose some holiday-themed artwork. Since I am still working on decorating my flat, I didn’t have any artwork on the walls already, but the idea is that you can simply swap out your standard artwork for holiday-themed pieces during December for instant holiday cheer and take them down when the holidays are over. We have gone ahead and hung up these lush posters from Juniqe* to up the Christmassy vibes. When the holidays are over, these bad boys will get put into storage for next year and replaced with neutral pieces.

Christmassy Pillows

2: Change up your Pillows

This is another super simple trick – just take your existing pillows and replace the pillow cases and/or buy some seasonal ones like these Chrissmasy ones. Et voilà! Instant Christmas!

3: More plants!

The way “The Bruce Dickinson” feels about Cowbell is how I feel about plant life. You can never have enough of it. The beauty of plants and flowers are that so many of them are seasonal and can completely transform a space with their presence. Pick up a few poinsettias to really make your space feel festive.

4: Light some candles and pop out the fairy lights

I can’t really ever think of a time that lighting candles is not a good idea. It just elevates everything to a higher level of cozy and romantic. Go with some sparkly tea lights for decor in the winter and pick one with a lovely wintry scent to make your home smell like the North Pole. Oh, and don’t forget the fairy lights. It’s just not Christmas without them.

5: Let the tunes flow

Nothing makes me feel like Christmas is here more than putting on some good ole Kenny G. Open up spotify or youtube and create your own Christmassy playlist to add to the Christmas spirit

6: Cover it up

Another way to instantly transform an interior space is with throws and blankets. I love to use them both to snuggle up with as well as cover the sofa for that extra cozy feeling.

  • Omg your room is perfection! I love the twinkle lights draped over those Xmas images. You nailed it Hun! Xx


  • I love how you decorated your space and these are such great tips for decorating a home. I always think of decorating for holidays to be such a hassle, so I really love your suggestions of doing easy things such as changing up the artwork or adding a few festive pillows.


  • Aww pretty environment and atmosphere. If only I celebrate Christmas too… I want to experience that decorative feel :

    I envy people who have their own places and live in a flat. I think they’re lucky to be able to experience that tranquility. I’d love to live in a flat alone or with a partner or best friend though haha


  • Aw you look so cozy there!! <3

  • Simple touches yet SUPER effective! Loving the snuggly, festive vibes!

    This is exactly the kick in the ass I needed today. I haven’t exactly been a grinch this year, but work is super busy and I’ve just been tired. Gonna get out the fairy lights and candles tonight. :)


  • I love these ideas so much!! Your setup looks so cozy :)

  • WHat a stunning transformation ! I never thought of changing up the wall art ( I especially love the tree poster ) and I think that fairy lights fix everything :)
