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. This year we’re introducing some new, refreshingly chic ways to deck the halls and enter the festivities with a bang.
While wreaths, stockings, and pine trees are de rigueur this time of year, your decorations can always use an update. Admittedly, Christmas decorations can feel a little restricting, as if straying from a red and green colour palette will land you on the naughty list. But Christmas is an excellent occasion to unleash your creativity and express yourself.
Feelings we discovered over the last year have inspired the looks for the upcoming festive season. Of all the hopes and wishes we have for Christmas, this year it must be about togetherness. Christmas 2021 will inspire feelings of hope and happiness, with households planning to put on a truly festive display throughout the home.
Want to create an insta-wonderland worth sharing. Something magical, unique, and world-changing? From pared-down wrapping paper to glitzy accessories, we’re positive you’ll find something to make your spirits merry, bright, and oh so beautiful.
In preparation for welcoming friends and family back into our homes, we’re excited to share with you four decorating themes for this festive season.

Slow down and reconnect this festive season with the elegant winter inspired palette of a Japandi Christmas theme. This hybrid decorating trend combines the modern simplicity of Scandinavian Christmas decor with the timeless elegance of a Japanese aesthetic.
With a focus on raw materials and simple, natural elements and colours - adorn your tree in natural Japandi Christmas decorations such as beautifully simple paper baubles and berry garlands to achieve an effortlessly serene look.
Clean and minimalist yet simultaneously warm - the neutral palette reminiscent of the snow-capped mountains creates a relaxed style rooted in authenticity and nature.

If Christmas for you is all about glitz and glamour, adopt a high-shine metallic theme that runs from your Christmas topper right down to your tree skirt. Metallic accents like gold or silver are traditional for Christmas and New Year, but what if you want to try something different this year?
Copper is your answer! Copper is an elegant hue, which is both warm and cool. This metallic colour adds a chic and refined touch to your decor and creates the ultimate festive feel in your home.
This copper Christmas theme is inspired by the river's natural stream of flowing water and wildlife. We love how the mixture of copper and blue formulate a soft but decadent look; mingle with the warm glow of Christmas fairy lights for an ambient look and feel.

Red and green are the traditional Christmas colour palette, but that doesn’t mean they’re your only options. Make a stylish splash with a playful Christmas decorating theme inspired by an imaginative underwater world.
Mermaid Magic is inspired by the natural patterns found in salty rocks, barnacled sea creatures and ocean-waved sand. Perfect for a modern home, you'll find blush tones, sea blues and glistening golds that capture the magical moment just after the sun has set.
Shake up the status quo by filling your tree with friendly aquatic characters and elegant jellyfish tendrils to create an ethereal look that mesmerises all ages.
We have chosen three blush pink Oriental rugs that will look stunning with your mermaid themed decor this Christmas.
