A Traditional but Modern Merry Christmas


Today’s post will definitely come in handy for those who are bursting at the seams to start Christmas planning. Our style maven Tessa of Down That Little Lane has put together some inspirations that are sure to help you create a modern and stylish Christmas while still keeping with those gorgeous traditional Christmas colours and styles…

Using the Traditional Christmas Colours for decorating makes for easy shopping and co ordination with new items as you grow your collection.

Traditional Colours do not have to mean traditional design or even style. I am just talking fabulous greens and reds mixed with either silver or gold for your added bling… and of course you can never add enough white.

I have put together an inspiration board of styled images and some more modern version decorations of those traditional colours… just click on the images to find the sources.


I like to add a few new pieces each year to my collection and always buy well made items that will last me more than just the one season.

My decorations have evolved with the trends and once I combine that with the tree and some Christmas foliage I am all set for.

What colour theme do you do for Christmas?
