Christmas can be a magical season, and for luxury interior designers it’s a time to flex a bit of extra creative muscle and even decadence! It’s the time of year when pretty much anything goes from fun and funky to naturally Scandi, although creating a beautiful Christmas interior scheme that works well, takes skill. Popular themes this year include metallic along bold and natural, but there are some looks that will never, thankfully, go out of date.
Timeless and classic, Vintage is a skill of mixing old and new. Adding ornaments and decorations from generations gone by evoke a sense of family and continuity, which is all part of the spiritual element of the season.
Traditionally glass blown ornaments, which have been popular in the UK since the 1850, have never gone out of fashion, and mixing vintage designs with more modern versions can work extremely effectively.
In addition, classically made decorations crafted from wood include motifs such rocking horses, birds, bells, lanterns, or candle holders, all nod towards a traditional, almost Dickensian feel.
