Deep cleaning made easy

Usually, one of the least enjoyable parts of hosting at Christmas is the big winter clean beforehand. Our top tip is to break it down into rooms and start off by doing a bit of decluttering so that your Christmas decorations are shown in their full festive glory! All of our floors are super easy to clean – just order your FloorSpa kit in time for Christmas to clean with ease. The kit has everything you need to make your floors shine like new, also giving you peace of mind long-term when used in high footfall areas of the home. It’s also something you’ll be thankful to have to hand when doing your new year clean!

Getting Instagram-worthy snaps

This time of year can fly by, filled with trips to the Christmas market, last-minute dashes to find those panic presents and chilled evenings in with family and friends. One thing to add to your reminders is to take a few snaps of your Christmas decorations now, then again once your home is refreshed in the new year. Future you will be thankful for capturing these memories as it’s one of the most important times of year for using our homes! We love seeing our floors styled in your own way at home, especially during the festive season, so make sure to tag us @harveymaria and use the hashtag #MyHarveyMaria for your chance to be featured on our feed and stories! Interior styling can be a fun and creative outlet, and the possibilities are endless of how you decide to decorate.

Create a dream home mood board

In the post-mince pie, cosy days in between Christmas and New Year’s Eve we often find ourselves scrolling aimlessly through our phones. Why not utilise that time to start your very own dream home mood board? We love finding inspiration through saves on Instagram or by creating boards on Pinterest. You can theme your boards by room, trending looks, colour palettes and more, and it’s an easy visual way to plan out your projects for the year ahead.

One of our favourites boards from this year was Cottagecore Aesthetic Home – a popular trend inspired by carefree living and bringing a sense of the outdoors in. Creating a board allowed us to visualise ways to reimagine our designs to suit a modern-day Cottagecore home, including soothing nature-inspired colour palettes and decorative floral motif patterns.

Create a Christmas wreath

Why not get creative with wreath making – a sustainable way to reuse foraged decor or flowers you’ve received this season. We love tying in the colour scheme of our wreath with the colours of our home during Christmas time, as this sets the tone for the decor from the moment your guests arrive at your door. Alternatively, they make a great statement piece on your fireplace to contrast with the bold colours of your surrounding patterned flooring. We love getting inspo for our wreaths from our favourite Instagram interior gurus!
