Christmas Decorating Trend: Enchanted Woodland
Kick off the illusion with a forest green garland threaded with ornate shapes and faux birds.
Giftwrap gets a modern yet natural twist with swirls of marble, flashes of ferns and a smattering of pine cones souped up with a hint of gold.
A snowy winter scene creates a bewitching backdrop for a lavish scheme of rich greens and blues.
This luxe wallpaper has the look of spun gold, while the tray display appears to be held in place by a trio of glittering butterflies.
Write your Christmas wishes to Santa surrounded by whimsical motifs – whacky add-ons only increase the fun.
Create an ephemeral ice bucket by freezing a bottle of vodka in foliage-filled water. Santa will love you forever.
Fresh moss and rustic hits combine with luxe lighting and glamorous glassware to bring the magic to this most fabulous of feasts.
A twinkling star, pretty wall of satin ribbons and charming woodland masks ramp up the party feel.
Shooting up the staircase as if by some enchantment, this epic living garland is nothing short of spellbinding.
Like a spectacular sunburst mirror, this fabulous feathered wreath is a true reflection of good taste.
Crafted from solid oak and at once homely and heavenly, this four poster has just the right amount of yuletide charm.
Welcome your guests – and their gifts – with a show-stopping door bursting with traditional hits.
