CREATE THE LOOK

MITSUKO

Draw on inspiration from the ancient art of shadow puppetry to tell your Christmas tale this year. Mitsuko explores the effect created when light meets shade, mixing soft colours, reflective metallics and beautiful details to create magical scenes

The Look

Mitsuko is contemporary, sophisticated and understated, with a focus on shapes, light and shadow play. Gold, copper, rose gold and silver provide the opulent overcoat of the look, with teal and petrol blue hues working with traditional reds to add hints of colour.

Golden fans, glittery baubles and honeycomb paper decorations evoke the traditional tools of the puppetry trade, while contemporary additions like metallic geometrics and intricately woven wire add a new way of thinking when it comes to playing with shadow.

The Decorations

The key to creating the Folklore look is to let your imagination take charge. Hark back to the traditional tales of Eastern Europe by introducing decorative touches like little golden gingerbread hearts, clay carol singers and felt-coated songbirds to your festive rooms.

Little house-shaped baubles and wooden cabin tree hangers are perfect for creating your own traditional village scene in miniature, with glittery polka dot toadstools bringing the look to life as if it’s jumped out of a storybook.

The Tree

Our 7ft Serbian Blue spruce is the ideal festive focal point. Featuring 1,933 thick mixed-texture branches, it’s a faux tree that brings the outdoors in without losing any needles. And when finished with our pure white LED Christmas lights with copper wire, the look is one of effortless chic and Christmas glamour.

The Table

Keep the table minimal and metallic. Sip your festive aperitifs from these elegant Moscow Mule glasses by Tom Dixon, and serve drinks or canapés from the copper-plated Plum tray.
 
For Christmas tableware with a twist that’s in keeping with the theme, opt for tableware inspired by the East. With artisan designs and beautifully crafted ceramics, the Asian East tableware set features bowls for every purpose for a tranquil, comforting feel at the table.
