Here’s how to create a luxurious Christmas set-up in your home

Creating a sense of luxury is all about the details. In this setting, a panelled wall, plush velvet sofa and brass or gold elements come together to evoke a feeling of classical elegance. In contrast, keep the festive pieces simple and understated.

Sometimes it’s the simplest things that make the most impact. In place of a tree, hang three glittery stars against a cool, white backdrop to create a subtle, festive feel. The sparkle of the stars sits well alongside the brass items, artwork and the star on the coffee table, and makes the room work as a whole.


To allow the glittering elements to take centre stage, keep the presents simple yet chic with glossy black paper, gold cord and luxe gift tags.
