Country Walk

Channelling a classic and cosy Christmas, the Country Walk trend is both rustic and glamorous. The traditional ruby red and emerald green palette is given an indulgent update with rich burgundy and pops of gold. Pine cones and faux florals nod to the country feel while brushed metals and velvet add an air of luxury.

Winter Star

Wander into a winter wonderland of Scandi style and decadent designs with the Winter Star trend. Layer frosted and mirrored textures with faux fur, felt and pearlescent finishes in a palette of sage green, dusky rose and cream.

Fireplace decor

Also known as mantelscaping, adding décor to your fireplace creates another festive feature. Drape garlands or artificial foliage across your mantelpiece, weave fairy lights amongst the branches and dangle baubles from them.

Christmas tree skirts

Don’t forget the finishing touches. Add a tree skirt to hide ugly wires and boring stands. It completes the look and besides, the base should look festive too!

Decor for small spaces

If you haven’t got the space for a full-on fir, try one of these festive space savers. Slim-line spruces, a mini pine or perhaps a tree with a twist on tradition.

Festive foliage

Why not try some DIY decorations? Go foraging for a branch, wrap it in fairy lights, dangle baubles and decorations from it and hang it above the dining table for a festive centrepiece or in a spare space.

Christmas decorating tips

How many lights do I need?

For a decent smattering of lights, we recommend about 5m of lights for every 2ft of tree - so about 15m of lights for a 6ft tree. Remember to make sure the lead length between the tree and plug socket is long enough!

How many baubles do I need?

Approx. 80 baubles should cover a 6ft tree, but it’s entirely up to you. Some like to hang a dec on every branch, whilst others opt for a more minimalist approach. Just make sure to mix up different sizes and colours to add depth.
