What look will you go for this Christmas?
Traditional always works well, no matter what style of home you have. Green and red are classic for Christmas. A big tree is a must have so go with a green tree and then red decorations – you can add silver, gold or white to this but keep to just two colours. Keep the lights white or clear and once you have finished the tree, start on the rest of your home. A traditional wreath for the door, a traditional table with a fabulous center piece with candles, holly, berries and ivy. No home can fail to look fantastic with a simple classic look.
A woodland look
Twigs, sticks, berries and wooden decorations create a modern twist on the more traditional look. You can add bold and bright colours to this look, with paper stars and bright wooden decorations. You can add these to a traditional Christmas tree or to twigs or a coloured tree – a white tree can really highlight this look too. This look can be carried out throughout the house with a bright and bold table and a bit of colour and sparkle to the wooden look.
Textured and tactile baubles made from wool, felt, paper and an animal or two creates a woodland forest tree! A fabulous theme for the kids; chose a one-off baubble as a feature through to free standing reindeer and animals made of twigs. Pull the look through to your table with individual animal table places or napkin rings and a center piece that the kids will love.
Another take of the natural twig theme but without the bright colours. The colour palete for this look is much more basic; no bright colours apart from deep red berries and maybe a tiny bit of sparkle to bring a bit of life to the very wooden theme! It’s a very homely, warm and cosy theme; think open fires and log cabins to get this look right. From a simple tree to a simple table, this is the easiest look to pull off and less is more…
A soft and girlie look with champagne, gold and pink. Lots of ribbon, lace and silk with beautifully old fashioned glass baubbles. Add a feather and some glitter to really make this look perfect. Think white washed wood, fake roses, feathers, ribbons and lace. Oppulant, ecclectic and gorgeous. This look is not the easiest to pull off, but is well worth it as if it is done well it can look amazing.
Silver and gold
A contemporary look with lots of glass baubbles in gold and silver and not a lot else. To make this look fantastic on your tree use lots of beautiful baubles of different shapes, but keep the style, colour and material the same. To pull the theme into the rest of the house stick with the colour scheme to make a Christmas table that truly sparkles!
Bold and Beautiful
There are some amazing coloured baubles to chose from so go crazy with bright pinks, blues and purples. If you put them all together you can get a real peacock look for your tree. With such bold colours make sure you don’t over do the number of baubles and remember to keep bigger baubles at the bottom. Pull these colours through your home with a feather wreath for the door and bold and beautiful colours for the table – make your house stand out from the crowd this Christmas!
