The best quiet luxury Christmas decorations

It's hard to articulate exactly what embodies the quiet luxury trend, and why we're all so obsessed with it, but in short, it's all about understated elegance. This doesn't just mean neutral colours, it also involves incorporating plenty of texture and different shapes so that an interior looks classy and expensive. So, it's an easy trend to incorporate into Christmas living room decor ideas or even Christmas hallway decorations, to really wow friends and family over the festive period. 

'Introduce soft fabric and fur accents and accessories to your home for a rustic yet refined hygge-inspired look. Layer cosy rugs and add throws and blankets to chairs so your guests can wrap up warm as you all relax in comfort. Incorporate Scandinavian-inspired elements like light woods and seasonal foliage to ground this decor style in nature,' adds Francesca Hadland, styling expert at Bridgman

'Add an unmistakably Christmassy ambience to any space with a warm glow. Use lighting sparingly to create a cosy feel warmed by candlelight, a crackling fire and warm white lights.'

Now the John Lewis Christmas advert 2023 has landed the festive season is fast approaching. What are you shopping for first? The paper tree decorations are going straight into my basket, and straight onto my tree come early December.
