Urban Glamour Yule

Create a Christmas décor with attitude this season with bold design choices and high shine finishes that will put your baubles to shame.

Break the rules
Red is the colour that’s traditionally associated with Christmas, but Urban Glamour is all about writing your own design rules, so we’ve chosen the sharp raspberry tones of Clarence Petal for our statement Roman blind. This stylish shade sits somewhere between red, orange and pink, but refuses to be pigeonholed and always steals the show. The charcoal frames on this gorgeous bay window provide a dramatic contrast to the colour choice and give the room a decadent, art deco feel. 


Expect the unexpected
Don’t be afraid to mix up contemporary shades and prints with classic designs and heritage colours. These surprising combinations and confident choices are the very things that give the Urban Glamour trend its edgy appeal. We’ve teamed demure floral Oralia Dove curtains with our Roman blind. The muted grey-green tones cool the sugary sweetness of the blind.


Tactile luxury
This look may be cool but it’s also comfortable, with tactile and luxurious textures such as velvet, faux-silk and cashmere. Stamp your personality with shades that make you smile. Cushion covers to match the Roman blind are teamed with cushions covered in rich, seasonal shades, including Nexus Bordeaux.

Matt and shine
Nothing says glamour more than high shine metallics, and this trend uses reflective surfaces more creatively than most. Not only do glass and metallic surfaces communicate a sense of glamour, they can also be used to throw light around the room, creating illusions of light and space. In our festive living room, an ornate brass coffee table takes centre stage, cleverly drawing the eye all the way to the feature window.  However, this look also celebrates the beauty of flat surface colour.  Here, we’ve used dried winter blooms to provide just the right depth of hue.
