It’s that time of the year again; yes folks Christmas has returned. As the years go by we seem to be celebrating Christmas earlier and earlier. Maybe it is that we just can’t get enough of this magical season, or maybe the allure of having an excuse to fill our homes with glitter is the reason. Maybe we will never really know why we love it so much, but there is no doubt that Christmas gives everyone the chance for some escapism, which is much needed by the end of the year. It also allows us to add some fun and sparkle to our homes, which is not such a bad thing hey?

For an effortless and modern touch to your décor this Christmas, this gorgeous style is the perfect option. This trend uses gold, bronze and copper tones, to create Christmas opulence at it’s best. The trick is to keep the tree minimal by adding some subtle white lights, then you can finish off the scheme with a broad selection of metallic hanging decorations to make a strong impact. Geometric shapes are prominent in this trend, with angular diamonds and woodland animals featured. The use of glass accessories finished with a gold trim will also allow the soft Christmas lights to bounce throughout the space. Team the rich metallic tones with lush green foliage and hints of pale pink throughout.

If colour is your bag, then why not use Christmas to go big on colour. Who said Christmas needs to be traditional? Kitsch styling has been bubbling under the surface for a while now, with many choosing bold bright schemes that are no way colour shy. John Lewis this year has created their trend Lima Llama, which is a playful collection based around Peruvian festivals. Using a vibrant colour palette, lively pom-poms wreaths and multicoloured ornaments, this trend will make your scheme pop. If you fear this may be a bit much for a lounge though, this scheme would work perfectly in a playroom or creative office.
