It’s that time of year once again and British Garden Centres, the largest UK family-run garden centre group has revealed its festive decorating inspiration to help customers deck the halls for the season. From classic and natural styles to bright and bold glamour, there are ideas to suit every taste and every home.
New for 2023: This year has seen a dopamine decor trend with homeowners embracing bold colours and playful patterns to create a fun and happy space for guests to enjoy Christmas. British Garden Centres is proud to reveal its Lollipop theme which sees sweets and tasty treats in bright vibrant colours mixed with pastel! This is a delightful and bright combination, think Christmas Red mixed with Sugar Blue, and Lipstick Pink and Pistachio for a delightful sprinkle reminiscent of Hundreds & Thousands.
Also new for this Christmas is the Fruits and Berries theme which is rich, sumptuous colours and textures with sugar finish and antique gold. Think lush greenery, frosted berries, oranges and clementines to bring texture and scent to the home. For those who like a more modern look to their festive home, Dark Nights is a dramatic theme for contemporary homes with darker shades of grey, blue and black giving a cool urban living look. A sleek but stylish trend, the darker colourway will never go out of style and will look effortless in years to come.
