This time of year is a wonderfully magical one, especially for people who love a spot of interior design and make quick little changes at home to decorate for the seasons. Time was that we used to just put decorations up at Christmas time, but now many of us actually switch our home décor up so it matches with the weather – which we think is a great idea!
But Christmas decorations can often be a bit of a touchy subject for some, with many complaining that people – and shops – start getting into the festive spirit of it all a little too soon.
However, if you’re one of those who can’t wait for Christmas to start and begin putting your decorations up in November (much to the disgust of friends and family), you’ll be pleased to know that doing so could actually help make you happier as a person!
Speaking to UNILAD, founder of MindFixers and owner of The McKeown Clinic psychoanalyst Steve McKeown said: “In a world full of stress and anxiety people like to associate to things that make them happy and Christmas decorations evoke those strong feelings of the childhood.
“Decorations are simply an anchor or pathway to those old childhood magical emotions of excitement. So putting up those Christmas decorations early extends the excitement!”
So there you have it – license to decorate this year! We’d love to hear how you’re all getting in the festive spirit so drop us a line in the comments below. Or give us a call to see what mosaic effect tiles we’ve got in stock that could help bring some Christmas cheer to you and yours this year.
