Ravishingly Regal

After a rollercoaster year of highs and lows, we’re certain that many households will be making Christmas as special as they can this year. We predict that after a year of uncertainty that there will be a resurgence of the traditional Victorian-style Christmas. Whether you’re able to host your usual festivities or you’re perhaps starting a brand-new yearly custom, traditions, old and new, will be cherished.

Classic Christmas Colors

Traditional colorways of red, green and gold will be coming back to the fold this season, along with classic motifs throughout the home. Big bushy trees will be adorned with baubles, faux festive branches and clip tree decorations. The A by AMARA collection includes tartan baubles along with robin & floral designs and these, along with garlands on mantles and dining tables, are perfect for creating that classic Christmas feel.

Cherished Pieces

We also predict that as many of us adopt new traditions, investing in keepsake items will be a trend – from ornate baubles to nostalgic table centerpieces. Villeroy & Boch and Mackenzie-Childs at AMARA have a wonderful array of decorative objects with a feeling of Christmas past that can be cherished and passed down through the years. From Nutcracker snow globes and ornamental Santa sleighs, through to mechanical gingerbread musical boxes.
