Magical Luxe

Go for cool elegance

Sophisticated, elegant and refined - though the design elements in this frosty festive trend might be minimal, the overall effect is magnificently magical.  

Frost and snow
This look truly embraces the magical sights and scents of Christmas time, with a colour palette inspired by a frosty winter morning. Layer cream, vanilla, ivory and snow white hues to create an interior that’s bright and crisp, but with a generous scattering of warming shades. In this gorgeous open plan living-dining room, the creamy walls and curtains provide a rich base that subtly contrasts with the pure white Christmas tree.

Shining bright
Only the most precious metals and jewels will do for this chic festive look. Gold, silver, bronze and pearl decorations adorn the tree, their lustre accentuated by the warm golden glow of twinkling fairy lights. Pile presents, wrapped with gold and silver ribbons, bows and beads, under the tree for an extravagant finishing flourish. Here our table decorations mirror the opulent style of the tree. Golden acorns and high shine baubles hang from a simple branch centrepiece. Mirrored glassware, solid silver candlesticks, and decorative tea light holders in warm metallic shades infuse the space with a heady perfume. 


Cool and crisp
This look cleverly combines glamour with contemporary cool, mixing up traditional classics with fashion-forward designs for an eclectic luxe finish. Here the glass topped table and moulded plastic chairs create an exciting frisson that elevates the scheme beyond simple refinement to a unique and modern design expression.
