CREATE THE LOOK

WINTER PALACE

An old Russian folktale inspires this collection, where, in the midst of the fir forests and snow-capped mountains, a beautiful Winter Palace glitters as facets of ice catch the starlight from above. With presents all wrapped and waiting beneath the tree, anticipation builds in the hope of catching a glimpse of Father Frost on his horse-drawn sleigh...

The Look

The magic of Winter Palace is captured in boutique glamour. Feathered peacock clips, sparkling diamante baubles and metallic starburst decorations provide a refined, opulent look throughout, with touches of tradition re-imagined in the form of silver leaf sprays and charming little Babushka baubles.

A palette of sapphire blues and glamorous golds creates a sophisticated seasonal setting that’s full of wonder befitting of the theme’s palatial name. Sparkling snowflakes and dainty glass angels sit delicately on tree branches, and there’s even an appearance from the man on the moon.

The Decorations

Russian ornaments are known for their intricate details and opulent colours, and a Winter Palace wouldn’t be complete without a Fabergé egg. Taking inspiration from the ornamental icon, our royal blue egg decoration is laced with gold detail to catch the light and dance it around the room.

On the tree, mix materials like glass and shimmering metallics to create a dazzling scene that nods to the icy landscape that encapsulates the theme. Scatter jewelled and acrylic snowflake baubles and icicle ornaments among the branches of your tree for a white Christmas whatever the weather.

For fireplaces and window sills, a snow globe perched between softly glittered leaves gives a magical touch, inviting onlookers to shake up the snowfall and be transported to colder climes.

The Tree

The 7ft St Petersburg blue tree with its wintery branches is the perfect greenery to complement the theme. Drape it in our silver waterfall lights to give the impression of falling snow, and wrap the base in a silver sequin tree skirt for sparkle from base to top.

The Table

The Winter Palace tabletop is, of course, gold and glittery. Keep the tablecloth and napkins neutral in soft white with a subtle shimmer to allow your dinnerware, glassware and decorative trinkets to shine, with metallic accents and sparkling diamantes drawing the eye and inviting all to gather round.
 
Introduce a few natural elements to the table to keep the look refined. A frosted pine cone candleholder makes the ideal centrepiece, providing an organic touch alongside softly flickering candlelight, while our clear acrylic tabletop reindeer appears as an elegant ice sculpture, but with no fear of melting.
 
For dinnerware worth keeping on display, our contemporary Willow plates are simple yet elegant, and continue the theme effortlessly throughout every course.
