B Living UAE X Crate & Barrel│ Yes, it’s officially ok to start decorating – and this is how you should be doing it
It’s the middle of November, which means we’ve given in to the sound of distant bells and are ready to embrace all things festive. This year marks a return to the traditions that were put on hold during the pandemic and brings with it new reasons to celebrate. When it comes to decking your halls – which, we’ve decided is acceptable from now – it’s all about creating a joyful space to share with your loved ones.
Whether you’re someone who likes to go-all out with a theme, or someone who takes a more eclectic approach, Crate and Barrel has got you covered with their design collections this year. Here’s a summary of what’s on offer from the UAE’s favourite American-helmed brand:
Christmas 2021 will see birch wood and winter whites play a big design role. This look is all about embracing the beauty of the natural world through subtle elements, such as green garlands and delicate snowflake ornaments. If you’re a real-Christmas-tree-all-the-way kind of person, this trend will elevate the overall wintery-feel to the next level.
A trend designed to create cosy feelings within the home. Darker colours such as black and brandy cherry red combine with neutrals to add a traditional festive feel – think napkins and stockings with pom poms. A ‘lodge’ style is all about crafting a warm atmosphere. Do this by lighting plenty of tapered candles, ensuring your guests have access to blankets and mugs filled with hot cocoa or mulled grape.
Red and green
Reminiscent of festive seasons from the past, red, and green are making a style come-back this year. Tall Christmas trees laden with presents should be decorated with bright red baubles and beautiful ornaments to contrast against the emerald pine needles. Coming hand-in-hand with this colourway are traditional Santa motifs, such as these adorable bell tree decorations.
