Christmas is coming, and so are hordes of friends and relatives. So what should you do to quickly spruce up your home to ensure it’s filled with festive cheer?

Here at Ettrick Forest Interiors, we have chosen to showcase the Linwood range for Christmas.

For a quick revamp, scatter cushions are an inexpensive option.

Whether you prefer cushions with checks, stripes, Fair Isle and Paisley patterns, or spots, many of this season’s covers are made from wool fabrics, available from Linwood, Moon, Osborne and Little Sanderson, Zoffany and Voyage, to mention only a few designers.

By using any of these increasingly popular fabrics, whether it be for scatter cushions, throws, table runners, soft furnishings, or upholstery, any one, or a combination of a few, can make a huge difference to a room.

So, if it feels dull and dark in your sitting room and you want to lighten the mood, try giving the existing standard lamp or table lamp a lift by re-covering the shade in a contrasting fabric to fit in with your existing decor, giving a tired lamp a new lease of life. Candles in all their forms and designs are also a popular choice. While candelabras and lanterns can also add light and bring a soft and relaxing feeling to a room.

So with all this choice available, why not let us help you create a warm and happy home this Christmas.

z Most furnishing wool fabrics have become popular with fashion designers for items such as coats, jackets, waistcoats, skirts, trousers, hats and handbags – all ideal gifts for Christmas, and all available from local border businesses.
