How to bring a pop of pastel to your Christmas decor

Draw inspiration from this year’s hottest trend and transform a pastel palette into a festive Christmas style with pops of pink and lavish gold accents


Statement foyer

If you favour a more sophisticated look, this luxe entrance way will appeal. Pink isn’t a traditional Christmas colour but teaming it with gold makes for a glam festive feel.
