We love Dunelm. Not only does it have some gorgeous, on-trend pieces, but everything is super affordable! So you can only imagine our excitement when we saw they had opened their Christmas shop (back off Scrooges, it's November we are allowed to feel festive). It's filled with lovely, sparkly decorations, trees, wreaths and more...

We've rounded up some our of fave affordable looks to get you inspired and make sure you head over to our Christmas hub page for loads more ideas, DIYs and just general festiveness. 

1. Pick a frosty colour scheme

This kind of neon, cooler-toned scheme is a big Christmas trend this year – we've been seeing it all over our fave brands. We know you have spent every Christmas searching for the perfect warm white light, but this look is all about the cooler, bright white and Dunelm sell 200 LED white lights for just £8!

Then with the decs you want to keep it frosty – silver, white and pale pink. You can get a pack of 34 icy pink baubles for only £7, so use those as a kind of base, then add in the funkier, larger decorations. We love these large pink sequin bauble and those swans? Adorable.  

2. Baubles aren't just for the tree

Sticking with the frosty theme, but this would obviously work with any colour scheme you've got going on, copy this super easy idea and fill up your glass jars with baubles, pop some fairy lights in there too. We think this would be a great way to add some festive sparkle to your kitchen – a room that can often be overlooked when it comes to decorations. Tip your pasta and cereal out of those mason jars and fill them up with baubles instead. 

Dunelm have loads of tree decorations that come in huge packs, so go have a browse to find the perfect colour scheme for you. 

3. Go for warming colours

This whole warm, rustic, woodland animals frolicking thing is another big trend this year and Dunelm have done it perfectly. Again, you can by a huge box of 34 baubles in varying autumnal hues and then pick out some super cute woollen doggies, a classic sparkly nutcracker and some wooden festive foxes

Oh and those lights? We see you eyeing them up. They are also from Dunelm! The mustard one is £25 and the copper one is £32. 

4. Festive up your bathroom

Who knew a bathroom could look so festive? We love that Dunelm have moved away from just encouraging people to decorate their living rooms, hallways and bedrooms and add some festive feels to the bathroom! 

The berry and twig garlands looks gorgeous hung over the bath (of course it would look equally lovely above a fireplace). Even just the white and red towels give a Christmassy touch. You could, of course, go all out and get yourself a Santa duck

5. Obviously pick up some festive bedding

Christmas bedding isn't for everyone, we know, but if it is your thing, Dunelm have some gorgeous, really affordable sets that aren't too in-your-face-Christmas. We love this Nutcracker duvet set, it's a really stylish alternative to more traditional Christmas bedding.

If you want to keep it cooler in your bedroom, this snow animal duvet set is super cute. We are feeling very inspired by the bedroom set up actually: the white fur rug, the fluffy teal cushions and the tree! We are so going to try and squeeze a tree into our bedrooms this year – check out Dunelm's selection of Christmas trees, they have loads of sizes and are really affordable.
