LUXDECO: The Winter Edit
Posted on 27 November 2016
As the mercury drops and Christmas charges towards us at full speed, I have been discussing with luxury brands ways in which to inject that much needed Winter and Christmas charm into our homes this season. Last week, I had the pleasure of talking to the fantastic team at LUXDECO to discover their most sought after items within luxury home accessories, gifting and display for this festive period. See below the top ten selected items from the brand and why they will add a touch of glamour to any home.
Christmas is a time to appreciate family and friends and what better way to enjoy time with one another than playing classic boardgames. Our first selection is the Aerin Cream Shagreen Tic Tac To set that puts a luxurious and traditional twist on a well known game that the whole family can enjoy.
LUXDECO - “Games are a favourite of many a family and noughts and crosses is a time-honoured classic. The meticulously hand-crafted finish of this AERIN set ticks all the boxes – beauty, quality and timelessness.”
Another much loved focus for the festive season is Christmas dinner. The family gathered around the table, enjoying beautiful seasonal food whilst enjoying each others company. Whilst these candlesticks would look fantastic anywhere in the home, they would make an outstanding centrepiece to a dining table for the whole family to enjoy.
LUXDECO - “Candlelight is romantic and atmospheric at any time of the year but particularly in wintertime when the nights draw in earlier and earlier and you indulge in bubble baths and nighttime dining. These unique L’Objet candlesticks blend functionality with beauty.”
A home is not a home unless you can find a place to relax and unwind, especially in the colder months. This extremely soft cushion not only looks great, it will transform nights curled up on the sofa, enjoying a film in ultimate luxury.
LUXDECO - “You’ve probably never felt anything as soft as this fur and cashmere cushion. Its timeless palette will see you through the years and its texture is the calling card of winter decorating.”
In a digital age, surrounded by downloads, screens and cables, there is nothing more impressive and enjoyable than seeing a beautiful and informative coffee table book on display. Whilst the idea of enjoying a book at home is not a new one, it is becoming a luxury in itself to have a beautiful hardback book on display for guests to enjoy.
LUXDECO - “Books are amongst the most popular Christmas gifts and they’re also wonderful for winter days by the fire. Assouline’s Impossible Collection series is a collector’s dream covering themes such as watches, design and fashion. The Impossible Collection of Jewelry is a fantasyland of the 20th century’s most important and valuable jewels.”
The beauty is in the finer details and something that I have always admired is something often forgotten from many table settings. The addition of a luxurious napkin ring such as the Joanna Buchanan set can transform a simple setting into a glamorous one.
LUXDECO - “A Christmas table without a little sparkle is half-dressed. Make the most of the season’s inherent magic with jewel-encrusted napkin rings and special tableware.”
These sparkle bugs most certainly add a touch of festive cheer to wherever they are present. The perfect choice for someone that loves travel and nature, this luxurious clip on insects will become the centre of attention if used as table decorations.
LUXDECO - “No one who has seen these little sparkle bugs has not loved them. They’re so charming and just the thing to add a touch of festive glamour to trees, wreaths or garlands. We like to use them as table decorations too.”
No place is more important than your own bed to get a perfect nights sleep, feel refreshed and rejuvinated for the next day. You have not experienced the best nights sleep you can unless you have slept in luxury sheets. The Haremlique Uskudar Sable duvet cover set will transform your idea of the perfect night.
LUXDECO - "Bedtime becomes near sacred during the winter months as we attempt to escape the cold. Make your nighttime ritual even more tempting with inviting new bed linens. Haremlique’s gold diamond motif banding masters the art of effortless chic.”
What do you get the person that has everything? Something that they definitely will not have, this stunning bookmark from Inhedited, created in Britainand coated in gold plating to create a stunning finish to an elegant design.
LUXDECO - “It seems everyone wants to get their hands on the limited edition manuscript book by Inhedited. With its Italian leather outer, gilded edges and gold-plated magnetic ruler. Complimenting the book is this beautiful bookmark, proof that beautifully made commonplace items can improve daily life."
Every Winter's evening should be accompanied by a luscious, soft and comforting throw to wrap yourself in. When they are not being used, these gorgeous throws can add elegance to the end of a bed, feature to a sofa or accessory to a feature chair.
LUXDECO - “Layering is the main distinguisher between the warm and cold seasons. A tactile throw, like this faux mink fur design, should be one of the first things you accessorise your space with this season.”
If you are looking for lavish, look no further than these two intricately decorated turtle salt and pepper shakers. These are functional table decorations that are sure to attract the attention and help guests enjoy a meal in the most glamorous way possible.
LUXDECO - “An interesting dinner conversation piece is always a great way to get dinner guests talking. These Swarovski crystal and 24-carat gold turtle salt and pepper shakers by L’Objet elevate an ordinary table mainstay to new heights.”
