John Lewis Christmas Decorations Bring Variety to the Holiday Season
Taking a closer look at what’s in store for John Lewis Christmas 2017, the thing that caught my eye was their Christmas decorations.
For the 2017 holiday season John Lewis have put forward 7 key trends that provide exciting twists on the classic festive decoration.
In today’s post we’re going to take a look at each of these Christmas decoration trends.
The Christmas Decoration Trends Up Close
1. Tales of the Maharaja Christmas Decorations
Tales of the Maharaja builds on the classic myths and stories told through dance. Utilising vibrant colours and a carnival atmosphere to bring to life festive stories.
Inspired by the rich tones and opulent jewels of a dancer’s costume, the Tales of the Maharaja Christmas decorations are colourful and playful; yet refined and glamorous.
Stepping away from festive tradition, reindeer, robins and snowmen are replaced with lions, tigers and monkeys; perfect for those who like things a little different.
2. Winter Palace Christmas Decorations
The Winter Palace decorations set turns to Russian folktales for inspiration.
Fir forests, snow-capped mountains and a stunning Winter Palace glitter with ice and hints of starlight; giving a truly magical feel.
Adding boutique glamour to the mix, the Christmas decorations feature peacock clips, sparkling diamanté and metallic hints.
From beautiful palaces to charming Babushka baubles, the look is refined and sophisticated; ideal for those who like to add glamour to the festive season.
3. Mitsuko Christmas Decorations
The Mitsuko collection draws on the ancient art of shadow puppetry to tell a Christmas tale.
Exploring the effects of light meeting shade, the decorations mix soft colours, reflective metallics and beautiful details to create festive magic.
Mitsuko Christmas decorations deliver sophistication with their contemporary, understated look. Baubles focus on shape and shadow play; while the palette uses metallics, alongside teal and petrol blue hues and a splash of traditional red.
4. Lima Llama Christmas Decorations
Lima Llama decorations offer Christmas with a twist, giving a Peruvian-inspired festive theme.
A celebration of all that’s bright about Christmas, the ornaments are multi-coloured and finished with pom-pom garlands to add fun.
Lima Llama decorations puts the festival in festive, with bold colours and pearlescent shimmers. Stepping away from traditional hues for rainbow-loving buyers.
Continuing the theme, John Lewis’s Lima Llama collection features crocheted textiles and traditional Peruvian patterns; shown in a carnival of colour that is sure to get the Christmas celebrations started.
5. Into the Woods Christmas Decorations
Our next trend from the John Lewis Christmas 2017 range is Into the Woods. A sneak peek into the magical world that lies in the depths of a leafy forest.
Drawing on inspiration from the forest, the Christmas decorations feature an abundance of beautiful faux greenery and embellished woodland creatures.
