How to Style your Home this Christmas | Noble Isle
It’s the most magical time of the year, a time to spend with loved ones and friends, celebrating the year behind us, and the looking to the year ahead. A time to bring out extra throws in the living room, to adorn your front door with a festive wreath, light candles and to fill the kitchen with the smell of mulled wine and Christmas baking.
The atmosphere of our living spaces can have a great influence on our mood and how we approach the seasons, explore ideas to style your home for Christmas, with sustainable brands and tips to perfect your festive interior with an eco-conscious touch.
Tree for Life, Not Just for Christmas
There’s no better feeling than decorating a tree for the festive season and seeing it light up for the first time in your home, than the fresh scent of the pine branches in your home. However, it’s no secret that Christmas trees aren’t the most sustainable purchase.
You can invest in a long-lasting artificial tree, to use for years to come, but plastic produces its own well known problems and environmental issues. What’s more, you may sacrifice the delight of the fragrant pines and the joy of having a real spruce or fir tree in your home.
In the last few years, rented Christmas trees have grown in popularity, with more fir, spruce, and pine farms offering a more sustainable option. Such as Cotswolds Fir in Primrose Vale near Cheltenham.
Rent the same tree each year, and return it for re-planting to grow until next December, watching it grow over the years from its tender care and love at Cotswolds Fir’s. There are a number of farms across the British Isles offering rented, sustainable Christmas trees in various sizes that suit your style and home.
Enhance the Fragrance of your Christmas Tree
Complement the fresh, evergreen scent of your Christmas tree with a paired Luxury Candle that adds both aroma and atmosphere. The Noble Isle Pinewood Luxury Scented Candle is vegan and sustainably made in the UK, with invigorating notes of Pine, Elemi and Cypress, sappy notes of Cedarwood, Guaiac Wood and Fir, and a lingering woody earthiness of Patchouli, Vetiver and Musk.
Made with real perfume and with a burn time of up to forty-five hours, this delight for your home not only enhances the fresh scent of your Christmas tree, but provides atmosphere and tranquillity.
Incorporate Stylish, Fragranced Products that also Fights the Winter Cold
Carefully placed Hand Sanitisers can be multifaceted in your living room, providing style with their bottle design, but practically placed to be within easy access, can help fight off the winter cold. To fight seasonal illnesses, place a fragranced Hand Sanitiser in high- use rooms of your home as a reminder to clean your hands when you arrive home or during your busy day. A simple solution for effective and simple protection from germs.
Placed in the hallway, it allows any guest in your home to do the same, helping to protect you and your loved ones against winter colds or flus.

Further to your door decoration, adorn a kitchen table or desk with a sustainable Christmas wreath, placing a candle in the middle to fill the centre. For a truly spectacular centrepiece with fragrance.
Sustainable Throws for Cosy Evenings and Decor
As the nights grow colder, it’s that time of year to pull out an extra throw and embrace the cosy and serene feeling of Winter. Style your home with extra throws and pillows to create a truly comforting atmosphere, while keeping toasty as the temperature drops.
British brand, Piglet in Bed, create sustainably made throws and pillows to style your home in an eco-conscious manner. Adorn your sofa with extra throws, so you’ll always have one in reach while you unwind from the day.
In Winter, our hands are often exposed more to the cold, drying or damaging skin. When you relax with a night-in, it’s useful to keep a moisturising Hand Lotion within reach to revitalise your hands in the cold weather.
Noble Isle has eight fine fragrance Luxury Hand Lotions available, all naturally enhanced with extracts sourced from across the British Isles. On a side table, keep a Hand Lotion of your favourite fragrance within reach. When you’re warm and snug under your throws, add an extra level of relaxation with a quick hand massage that will help keep your skin moisturised and healthy.

Our Luxury Hand Care Sets come in duo sets with Luxury Hand Wash and matching Luxury Hand Lotion. For the festive season, our Whisky & Water collection is an ideal scent. A handsome and dramatic fragrance, with notes of Cedarwood, Amber, Davana Blossom and Vanilla, the aroma itself evokes the image of a dram of Whisky by the warmth of a fire.
