Set the scene for a magical Christmas in the hallway with gorgeous, festive natural-look wreaths.

A vintage-style fir-cone advent calendar makes a fun addition to a festive hallway.

Deep-coloured walls are a good backdrop for gold and silver elements, while stems of faux hellebores and and amaryllis will happily grace tables all season without need for maintenance.

Christmas dining room

The rich, dark wall colour gives this dning room instant impact. The bold colour lends warmth, which teamed with a large-scale pattern in an uplighting shade, creates a great contrast.

Napkins in a vibrant tone give an instant lift to classic white porcelain and stemware. Pale white and green faux flower stems work well with the sparkle of silvery leaf sprigs on the dinner table.

Christmas mantelpiece

A delicate palette of taupe and silver can be warmed with spice tones and hints of berry red to create a festive mantelpiece.

Christmas living room

Dainty swathes of twinkly leaf garlands compliment a Christmas tree dressed simply with a dusting of fairy lights.

Textures such as felted wool, velvet and linen act as a foil to wallpapers with a slight metallic sheen.
