When I think of luxurious decorative accessories, I tend to think of places like Amara, an online store renowned for its designer gifts and homeware, stocking some of my favourite home brands such as Bloomingville, Nkuku and House Doctor.
So I’ve been looking forward to seeing what seasonal offerings there would be this this year and was delighted to discover that the Amara Christmas shop is filled with everything you could want, from the tableware to the gifts and all the decorative elements in between, to set the scene for a beautiful Christmas.
To make it easier for shoppers, Amara have created four distinct and gorgeous Christmas looks with evocative names to match: Hideaway (above), Kitschmas, Midnight Jewel and Winter Blush.
Isn’t the Christmas styling and photography so lovely? Each ‘version’ of Christmas appeals to me in a different ways, so I would find it hard to pick out a favourite look!
I ordered a couple of items from the Christmas shop, courtesy of Amara, choosing a realistic pre-lit frosted eucalyptus LED garland with a discreet battery power-pack for the lights. I thought the garland would be the perfect accessory for the mantel in our front room:
It is something I’ll be able to use year after year and I’m pleased with the way it has elegantly dressed our fireplace. If you’re looking for ways to give your fireplace some festive appeal, there is a stunning and varied range of wreaths and garlands here.
I also couldn’t resist these beautiful glass baubles from Nkuku:
As a fan of their tiny Kiko frames which dangle from strips of fabric, I love the similarity of style here. The crackle glazing is stunning; they look precious, but don’t feel too delicate to handle and display.
They look simply beautiful hung from a Christmas tree, but would also look amazing spaced out along a decorative branch above a dining table, with the candlelight catching them. You can see more Nkuku hanging accessories here.
So with Christmas decorating now underway for many of us, do you have a favourite Amara Christmas look you’d love to emulate in your home?
