Pair with Nordic patterns and sprigs of holly berries, alongside tableware with festive essentials to provide a truly classic Christmas effect.
The modern and refined winter theme is set to be a popular theme and uses cool tones of white, silver and blues. This palette creates an extremely elegant festive environment within the home. Metallic colour palettes run throughout the collection also to depict winter in its purest form, with a hint of blue inspired by the colours of frost and ice. A winter’s tale can also be told with the addition of natural green accents to create a harmonious balance of warm and cold. Add foliage to your white palette to add a pop of colour and resemble a field of snowdrops that have been picked from nature. Mix with snowy owl decorations which are set to be big for 2022 and add wintery silver pine garlands to create a winter wonderland.
Delicate, rose tones combined with soft pink shades will create a dreamy and romantic mood in this festive season. This collection’s calm but romantic colourway of tree ornaments, lights, and wreaths is the perfect antidote to the busy time of year and brings light to the Christmas season. (Pictured top)
Pastels will add a softness to your décor and pair with floral patterns for the icing on the perfect pastel Christmas-themed cake. Think blush pink, champagne, lilac and pearl for an overwhelmingly soft and elegant Christmas display. Pair with the pine green shades of your Christmas tree for contrasting elements to create something magical.
The romantic theme looks great when they’re mixed with bright, bold pinks and reds. The Lipstick theme combines these colours to create an energetic, warm, and strong statement in the home that will appeal to teenagers and people who just want to have fun over the festive period.
