Break With Tradition
If you’re looking for an alternative Christmas style break the mould with a rainbow of colours and some unusual tree decorations. On paper monkeys and baubles might sound like a crazy idea but, climbing up this white artificial tree backed by flamingo pink walls and bold flock fabrics they look fab! There really are no rules for this look other than don’t follow the rules. Throw all you've got at the tree and then stand back to admire this eccentric twist on Christmas. Be bold and get into the spirit of Christmas with this fanciful style.

We adore this sumptuous looking lodge style sitting room and frosty Christmas tree. The big chunky cable knit covered armchair and abundance of throws and cushions makes it look like the ideal place to curl up and get cosy. The neutral white and cream colour palette looks very festive so even if we don’t have a white Christmas this snow tipped tree will bring the festive feeling into your home.

If your interior taste is along the lines of “more is MORE” then this sumptuous purple, blue and gold explosion of festive décor will be right up your street. Heavy luxury fabrics like velvet and silk mixed with the deep blue colour scheme are the perfect setting for this elaborate and individual tree design. This room definitely has the wow factor and would make the ideal setting for a festive drinks party, although we would probably want to fight off the ensuing hangover somewhere a little more tranquil!

Get Red-y For Christmas
Traditional red and green decorations are an annual favourite and we love this classic colour scheme. The contrast of the red against the green foliage and pale furnishings brings drama to the room. Red reminds us of Robins, Rudolph's nose, Poinsettias and a host of other iconic Christmas imagery. As an accent colour you can make a big impact with a few little additions of red to your home.
This white and wintery scheme is simple yet effective. Scandinavian chic is achieved with the stripped wooded floorboards, panelled walls, pine cones and logs haphazardly stacked in the fireplace. The look evokes thoughts of winter forests, cold noses, snowflakes and woodland animals frolicking in the snow. Keeping to such a limited colour palette may be hard for some but for those who can control their festive urge to splash colour everywhere this is an easy and eye catching style to recreate.

For those who enjoy a coordinating Christmas this monochrome look is ideal. Black, white and multiple shades of grey combine to create this high end interior design. Keeping the tree minimal with white decorations and a rustic star at the top is a real style statement. The use of wicker, foliage and pine cones across the mantel piece softens the looks and brings the great outdoors, indoors.
