Planning the Christmas window at our West London showroom is one of the tasks I look forward to each year with great anticipation – whether based around a traditional Christmas tree or something more unusual, it’s the perfect opportunity to combine beautiful fabrics and home furnishings alongside gifts and smaller decorations to create a real feast for the eyes! This year in particular I felt the need to bring a touch of Christmas magic so am very happy to present our ‘Christmas angel’ to you today!
The beautiful sheer fabric by Sahco which forms the body of our angel caught my eye because of the clever use of matt sequins which add depth and interest without being too glitzy. The wallpaper behind is by Harlequin and is from their latest collection. Unusual wallpapers, particularly those incorporating metallic elements, were one of the most interesting trends to gain momentum this year – we have some fantastic new additions to our samples library at the West London showroom which are already proving popular. Teal was another strong trend in 2016 and was the perfect choice for this year’s window – combined with warm metallics, glassware and natural textures including faux fur and branches it feels both glamorous and festive.
In store we have an incredible selection of decorations, perfect for adding that last minute finishing touch to your home. Home fragrance by Aromatique and Castelbel are perfect for setting the scene for festive entertaining whilst an original selection of baubles and ornaments will trim the tree wonderfully!
I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We look forward to welcoming you in 2017 with our sale, starting on Saturday 7th January at our West London Showroom.
