Lovely to be asked by Amara Living to pick my favourite Christmas wreath look for 2015, but very difficult as there are SO many to choose from. I eventually plumped for this peacock extravaganza, luxurious and tactile and about as far from practical for my renovation as possible!
I love the choices made by other designers, makers and bloggers in the fabulously festive article, especially these ones below.
The article shows a definite trend towards more eclectically balanced foliage, offset and heavily gathered to one side, with more sparsely decorated opposite edges. These designs give a very contemporary feel to festive wreaths and are relatively easy to create at home using garden greens and a simple hoop.
Super colourful and fun Christmas wreaths are also moving away from the traditional norm, brilliant for kids to help make and giving wonderfully modern bright shades centre stage.
A few others which I like this year are below. Which one’s your favourite?
How about a touch of the Highlands from Emily Hannah at NOTHS?
Pod’s elegant geometric and very modern take on Christmas:Maybe you’d like to go truly green with The Christmas Home‘s Brussel Sprout star! Or be bowtastic at Jo Malone?You know I can’t resist a bit of natural timber and for the right property this wreath from John Lewis ‘wood’ be perfect 😉And pink is hot to trot this Christmas, so maybe it’s time to get blushing with this bauble special from Habitat!
There’s simply no excuse not to do something a bit different this year and makes your front door stand out from the rest. Go on, give your postman a treat and ramp up your wreath x
