Mood boards. Have you seen one before? Certainly. But in case you're unaware what these boards exactly are for, they can make your home ready for all seasons.

Can't wait for winter? No winter in your country? Doesn't matter - you can have winter in your house! To achieve this look, you'll need a frosted or flocked Christmas tree and a soft color palette of pale pinks, light grays, creamy whites, and champagnes. Add some ruffles and white lights, and achieve a chippy wood, glitter, or faux fur texture.
Minimalist much? Too in love with Nordic neutral colours? This mood board is perfect for you. What you need are the classic green Christmas tree, white or bubble lights, and some candles. Keep it neutral with creamy whites, greens, browns, and pale grays. For elements, greenery garlands, deer sheds, and pinecones would be easy to find at any decor shops. Texture? Choose linen, wood, burlap, wicker, cable knit, faux fur, and felt.
Go all out and do farmhouse Christmas this year! This cozy style requires jute, burlap, grosgrain, galvanized metal, and brown craft paper for texture. You need to decorate your green frosted or flocked Christmas tree with white lights and farmhouse animal ornaments. Then, have pinecones, greenery garlands, and natural deer sheds all over the room. Stick with plaid accents, gingham, houndstooth, and buffalo checks for the colour palette.
For the royal, blue Christmas, you need monograms and a flocked Christmas tree with white lights. You may also go for the classic green tree and then determine the right colour palette. Choices include blue, green, brown, and white; blue, silver, and white; or blue, gold, or white. Have buffalo check, houndstooth, gingham, or a soft antelope print for the elements, and floral picks (Magnolia leaves). Velvet, fair fur grosgrain, cable knit, wood, or mercury glass are good picks for the texture.
