Home for Christmas
Set the scene for a wondrous Christmas and transform your home into the perfect setting for magical festive get-togethers.
Surrounded by frosted fir trees and snow-capped rooftops, Christmas is the most magical of times in an Alpine setting, when the mountains come alive with festive spirit.
The over-sized pinecones and waving pines on this chimney breast wallpaper have luxurious light-reflecting metallic highlights. With a bold emerald green ground and bursts of rich red, the room feels all ready to welcome home the snow-blown adventurers!

Bed is always the best place to be when it’s cold outside! Create a Festive feeling by switching the central picture for a simple wreath, and invest in velvet textured cushions and lots of squishy pillows.

Whimsical stripe wallpaper is the ideal background for complementing interiors without overpowering the other patterns in the room. Adding subtle stripes to walls in neutral tones gives you the freedom to be more bold with your upholstery and window dressing choices.

Make the room magical with paper lanterns, creating a festive, party atmosphere. This Lucky Lantern wallpaper features tasseled Chinese lanterns, decorated with pine, plum and bamboo – known as Suihan Sanyou, or the Three Friends of Winter. These three symbols are revered in Eastern culture, as they flourish in cold weather, symbolising strength in adversity.

Create a warm welcome……
We adore this wallpaper, which would make a great backdrop for Christmas decoration – the colour combination of vibrant pinks and greens makes the picturesque pattern detail pop.
Dark wallpapers are ideally suited to dining areas as they create atmsophere and sophistication and look gorgeous in evening candle and lamplight. Beautifully paired with velvet and gold detailed furniture, this becomes an enticing space.
Pomegranate by Rifle Paper Co.
In Greece, during Christmastime, pomegranates are placed to decorate doorways, homes and shop windows. Before midnight, to symbolise the passing of the old year, lights in the houses are turned off whilst families gather outside and at midnight, a pomegranate is thrown on the doorstep. More seeds spilt on the floor means the luckier the family will be in the New Year!
This contemporary wallpaper design exudes a warmth with its soft gold, glowing lines. Team with heavily textured fabrics in plain colours for window treatments, pillows, or rugs and illuminate with mellow lamplight.
There is something dream-like about these magical unicorns, making this design a captivating choice for bedrooms. We would love to string fairy lights across this to add Seasonal sparkle to the scene.
