Deck The Halls Sassy Style

The festive season is well and truly upon us and people have begun to decorate their homes. While you can’t go wrong with the traditional Christmas colours of red, white and green, there are plenty of other options. Christmas is no time to hold back so if you fancy experimenting with a more unusual scheme (safe in the knowledge that you’ll only have to live with it for a few weeks!), the result can be striking and beautiful.

Think Pink

Feminine and pretty, pink decorations can’t fail to raise a smile. Soft pastel shades look stunning when pared with white and silver, while bright fuchsia pops against gold. If you decide to take the plunge with pink, West Elm stocks several pink ornaments including this adorable sequin bird and quirky jewelled beetle.

Magical Metallics

Make the most of the glitz and glamour of a Dubai Christmas by decorating with metallics. Traditionally you had to choose between silver or gold but thankfully that design ‘rule’ is thing of the past. The trendiest (and shiniest!) schemes take a more is more approach by including silver and gold, with copper thrown in for good measure! Get the look with these mixed metal baubles from Crate & Barrel.

Merry and Bright

Usually, I’ll bang on about the virtues of a restrained colour palette to anyone who’ll listen. However, Christmas decorating is a major exception and some of the most joyful schemes are ones featuring ALL the colours. This eclectic look works well if you want to include homemade crafts and children’s festive creations which will blend together giving a cosy, cheerful feel. Paperchase’s range of brightly coloured baubles are the ideal starting point.

Pale and Interesting

For those who prefer a more subtle look, pale can most definitely be interesting. The key to a successful neutral scheme is to ensure a variety of textures across the space. Mix smooth white ceramics, with fluffy faux fur and rough natural wood for a Scandi vibe that will make the Big Man in Red feel right at home. Next.ae stocks lovely wooden decorations and this stunning wreath from Tribe Dubai is the perfect finishing touch.

Dramatic Darks

I know, I know. Even at Christmas, I’m obsessed with dark decor. Hear me out though. There’s nothing as chic as black or navy and metallics just gleam against them. If you’re hosting on New Years Eve dark decorations double up well providing a sophisticated back drop to your celebrations. These dramatic Paperchase baubles will have you joining me on the dark side in no time. Merry Christmas!
