It’s the most anticipated time of the year for children and adults alike - when we look upon winter, we can't help but get into the Christmas spirit. And after a year filled with change and uncertainty, we're more excited than ever to bust out the ornaments and start wrapping gifts. They say Christmas is a magical time; part of its magic is the exquisite delight that the holiday brings to the senses – the smells, tastes, colours, lights, and memories. One of our favourite seasonal traditions is hauling our holiday boxes up from the basement and decorating the house with trees, garlands, and twinkling lights as the year’s best new Christmas albums play in the background. It’s also an excellent occasion to unleash your creativity and express yourself through wonderful decorations. Want something magical, unique, and world-changing? Who doesn’t, right?
Choosing a Christmas theme can be challenging because there are so many different options out there. But as it turns out, Christmas decor is packed with unlimited design potential—you just need to get a little creative. This season we’ll be decking our halls with bright colours and recycled materials in addition to some of our annual favourites. Whether you keep it neutral with a pared-down aesthetic or lean into major glitz, we're certain you’ll find something to make your spirits merry and bright. So with that in mind, feast your eyes on these divine decorating ideas for Christmas 2020. Come and discover the magic!

This season we’re embracing going green: We’re adorning our trees with natural accessories, wrapping gifts with fabric instead of paper and purchasing eco-friendly decor items whenever we’re able. The Do It Yourself decoration style requires a specific mind set and a very organised approach, but the results are always the most unique and inspired. Besides, the craftsmanship necessary to turn your home into a magical fairytale for the solar celebrations, the DIY art involves mainly natural and organic materials: pine cones and fresh green branches, twigs of eucalyptus, evergreen, spruce, and moss.
Sustainable Christmas products are top of mind this year! You can stay on-trend while supporting the environment by ditching shop bought wrapping paper and investing in furoshiki wraps or cloth gift bags. With the freedom and abundance you can achieve with a DIY Christmas decoration approach you can adorn the whole house, not just one room. Take a look at our Persian Overdyed Rug selection featured below, these rugs are upcycled and given a new lease of life -- perfectly aligning with the 2020 Recycled Christmas aesthetic.

Elegant and ornate, Renaissance is one of our favourite new trends in Christmas decor for 2020! Ideal for the glamorous, city living folk that enjoy hosting beautiful, indulgent dinners at home. This theme takes classical references from the Renaissance frescoes in the 14th and 17th centuries and updates them in a contemporary way. Think extravagant feathers, luxurious embroidered soft furnishings with delicate pearls, and faux fur to add texture. Embrace the new colours of Christmas and use pastel tones to enhance your all-year-round aesthetic with soft pinks, building through to blues and greens with hints of metallic gold. Creating a welcoming ambience for the holidays can be super simple and easily achieved - by opting for golden lights on your tree, garlands, and more, you are instantly setting the mood for festivities while crafting a cosy atmosphere. For a tree with plenty of shimmer and shine, fill branches with gold metallic accents, like ornaments and ribbon. This look is sure to inspire dreamy images and dazzling Christmas parties. We have chosen a few of our Favourite Vintage and Antique Persian Rugs below, each are made with the highest quality materials with intricate detailed designs.

If much like the classic carol, you've been dreaming of a white Christmas, you're in luck. Snow on December 25th may not be a guarantee, but when it comes to your holiday decor, especially your tree, you can still create your own dreamy white aesthetic. Turning your home into a white wonderland that looks like it’s straight from a fantasy world may sound impossible, but with imagination and matching Christmas decoration, it is definitely achievable. The resplendent image of white Christmas has always inspired some of the best ideas for decorating houses - a Narnia theme works well in a rural setting, and lends itself to a mindful retreat filled with home-cooked dinners and long country walks in the snow. The colour palette builds on a neutral base with light blues, teal, and lilac coming through the tree decorations. While the traditional green and red colours of Christmas are lovely and joyful to look at, the serenity and quiet beauty of white give us a more tranquil but not any less beautiful feel of the season. Layer faux fur, chunky knit home accessories, and don’t forget to introduce a beautiful Beni Ourain rug to create a snug and cosy setting. A collection of mix-and-match tree decorations; pretty birds – especially robins – are perfect for setting a seasonal scene.
