1. Bejewelled

Transform your living area into an enchanted garden with decorations that reflect the beauty of nature with jewel-toned colours such as minty greens and blush pinks. Give the look drama with lustrous silver accents and flashes of iridescent turquoise to create a dreamy backdrop.

Tree decorations

Choose one shape and size of bauble for each colour to create a harmonious feel, then add variety and whimsy with a select range of decorations hung in a cohesive pattern – try a mix of delicate acrylic snowflakes and fairies, or fun high heels and wine glasses, to give sparkle to the arrangement. Some clip-on foliage and flowers make a great highlight.

Home decor

Dress your room with decorative vases of flowers with crackle bauble lights for glittering glam, and add stylish acrylic reindeer for a light-hearted touch.


2. Parisian

Go all out for a sumptuous Christmas display straight from the pages of a French fairytale with a delicious berry palette highlighted with glints of bright copper, champagne gold and silver for an enchanting, contemporary look.

Tree decorations

To achieve the wow factor, it’s a case of more is more when it comes to your decorations, but make sure you focus on a couple of styles of large bauble to emphasise the rich berry tones. Clip-on flowers and large glass baubles that reflect the light will provide impact, then you can go to town with smaller ornaments that add gilded golden and silver flair.

LED tabletop trees will look fabulous dotted around your entertaining areas, while a modern garland of gold foliage with berry-bright flowers and silver baubles will help to balance the tree.


3. Traditional

Embrace tradition with the heritage hues of gold, deep red and apricot perfectly offset by luscious forest green to give your room a timeless, luxurious ambience that is also warm and inviting.

Tree decorations

Choose patterned and gilded glass baubles, globes and finials to evoke the richly ornamented traditions of bygone eras and layer up the colours to create a sense of occasion. Red and gold clip-on poinsettia flowers will add a delicate touch and shiny glass globes in soft apricot shades will emphasise the rich colour palette. And don’t forget a golden star to top the tree.

Home decor

Hang a welcoming wreath on your front door, line up traditional red and white Christmas stockings, frame mirrors with gold star tinsel and place some wooden nutcracker figures in different sizes on sideboards and tabletops for true festive flair.

Styling tip

To get the most impact from your decorations it’s vital to concentrate on a signature ornament for each key colour; this will emphasise your chosen palette and give the overall look cohesion. Stick to your chosen hues and don’t be tempted to hang one-off decorations – this will just dilute the drama of your theme and make things feel cluttered. Consider how the look will complement your entertaining area as a whole before you choose a style.
