Make an entrance for all the right reasons
Whether it’s taking pride of place on your front door, above a fireplace or hanging from your staircase, a Christmas wreath is often the first decoration to go up.
Get it right, and the rest of your festive scheme will follow.
Ring in the change
Welcome Christmas guests with a heady combination of flickering candlelight, understated shades of gold and silver in cushions and throws and a festive aromatic wreath from Jane Packer.
The graphic power of black and white is always arresting. The white card wreaths keep this festive living room scheme looking minimal and contemporary.
Add a delicate fragrance to your entrance with indoor wreaths made from roses, rosemary, sage or thyme. Use any leftover stems to make corsages, which can then be used to decorate gifts.
Back to basics
Keep things simple with a minimalist entwined wreath hung above a fireplace filled with glistening Christmas tree baubles housed in a wicker basket.
Dress the dresser
Add a final flourish to your Christmas decorating by giving your dresser a festive makeover. Hang a cool grey paper wreath and foliage in front of layers of plates, and cast an atmospheric glow with a some twinkling candles.
A statement door deserves a statement wreath. A mix of hydrangea heads, rosehips, small white squashes, berries and branches of fir make for a unique arrangement.
A frosted pine-cone wreath will make a statement on any door. For an extra touch of festive glamour, add your own detail, such as this silk rose and ribbon.
Hang it up
Have yourself a very country Christmas with a wreath made from festive red berries, pine cones and needles.
Stray from tradition and hang your wreath on the inside of your front door. Secure with a silk ribbon and opt for festive window stickers to complete the Christmas look.
