Christmas Trends: Treasure Chest

It’s that time of year again – time to start thinking about Christmas decorations, trees and where last year’s baubles got stashed. At Very HQ, we’ve been working out how to turn our winter home trends into fabulous grottoes and, over the next few weeks, I’m going to take you through all of the tinsel, tree toppers and glitter to show you what we’ve come up with.

First up is Treasure Chest, which gives a festive update to our All That Glitters winter trend. This is a glam, glitzy trend that’s all about decadent metallics, warm gold and lots of opulence.

Some of my favourite items in this trend give a glamorous twist to traditional festive faves. The gold Nutcracker decorations, for instance, are a real staple of the season, but there’s not so much a hint of red and green to be seen here. Our reindeer tealight holders, meanwhile, add some extra glitter and glow while keeping a comforting Christmassy shape.

Baubles should go everywhere, from the tree to the mantelpiece to the dining table, they should be catching the light and adding a touch of glamour. My favourites from the Treasure Chest collection are these crackled glass finials, which will give your Christmas décor some real luxe. Candles are also a must, but if you’re not sure about naked flames around the house, these gold finish LED candles give the same effect and are completely safe.

Last but not least comes decorating your dining table. You can find everything you need in terms of furniture and tableware at our Christmas dining hub, but be sure to remember the little details, such as gold baubles in bowls for an elegant look.
