CHRISTMAS DECORATING TREND: FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE

Take things up to a whole other level with a magical swan and fun folklore decorations in a trend that celebrates all things ornate and glamorous.

In this modern winter's tale, where more is definitely more, jewelled brights, flashes of silver and acres of snowy white feed the fantasy vibe.

Glass details in delicate pink tones echo the architecture of one of Russia's most iconic cities.

Temptingly tactile accessories add a touch of luxe

Red on red fires up the drama and imagination

Extend the trend to your gifts by dressing them in cute wrapping paper

Snuggly faux-furs, velvet throws and warming shots of vodka make for a deserving post-wrapping treat
