Add a Royal Touch with the Regal Christmas Trend
25 Nov 2020
After a year like no other, family traditions are more important than ever. Steeped in heritage, the Regal trend celebrates age-old British culture and extravagant decorations, reminiscent of Royal custom. Here is how you can add a little grandeur to your home.
The Regal Christmas trend is all about traditional seasonal colours, dating back to as early as the 1300s when churches would present biblical plays to the public. Oxblood reds and forest greens form the foundations, sitting alongside rich earthy tones that are brought to life by polished silver or glistening gold embellishments.
A trend bursting with lavish luxury, there’s no such thing as too many finishing touches, so don’t be afraid to adorn every nook and cranny with ornate ornaments, glorious garlands or festive candles. Why not drape a tartan throw over your favourite armchair? Or scatter your sofa with plush velvet cushions? The combination of intricate embellishments and luxurious fabrics is redolent of the decor found in a royal drawing room, used for entertaining visitors or throwing impressive parties.
Turn your hallway into a grand display of elegance by placing elaborate wreaths on your front door. Go one step further and place a fully decorated tree in your window, adorned with lavish decorations that reach the ceiling as a real head turner. Fill a fruit bowl with bronzed fruit and place on a console table in your hallway for a subtle display of decadence.
With Christmas day fast approaching it is time to start thinking about your table setting. Whether you are holding an intimate dinner or large gathering, don’t be afraid to host a royal banquet of your own. Create grand heights with towering candelabras and flourishing floral centrepieces. Focus on the details and pair gold napkin rings with red table linen alongside crisp white crockery and embellished placemats.
