Colour Clash Christmas

Samantha Gibson by Samantha Gibson

Some people need no excuse to go all out at Christmas. If you love the excitement of decorating your home at this special time of year, you’ll love our festive take on high impact, Colour Clash interiors. Here, we share the essential design ingredients needed to achieve this eclectic look.

Use layering to clash colours
Once you’ve selected your statement print, you need to find a way to create frisson in the room with clashing textures, layers and colours. By choosing a pattern that’s already rich with colour, you broaden your options, giving you a loose palette to work from.  We’ve picked out the inky indigo shade for the walls and a deep violet shade for our curtains. Not only have we clashed the curtain and wall colours, we’ve clashed the textures too, choosing a flat matt finish for the walls and a shimmering faux-silk for the curtains.

Mix styles and design genres
While the sumptuous faux-silk curtains and tactile velvet sofa give this period property a grand and stately air, the warm wooden flooring, log burner and simple geometric  style rug provide a much more earthy feel, which adds warmth and a sense of simplicity to the overall scheme.  An old-fashioned wooden sled, used to display the Christmas gifts, creates a sense of tradition and innocent charm that contrasts strongly with the ostentatious Christmas tree decorations.
