Isn’t this time of year just wonderful? Warm drinks doled out in oversized mugs, log fires and the smell of cinnamon in the air, not to mention sparkling lights covering everything, everywhere in a blanket of Christmas! It’s the most wonderful time of the year and we’re celebrating with a little Christmas themed competition.
If you’re yet to enter our #LightUpForXmas competition yet, we’re spreading the festive cheer by giving away a swanky Fortnum & Mason Christmas Hamper for you to enjoy with family and friends. All you have to do is share your decorative Christmas lighting with us on Facebook or Twitter, by tagging your pictures #LightUpForXmas.
We’ve had entries pouring in since launching our #LightUpForXmas competition a few weeks ago and our hashtag is blowing up on Twitter, so we thought we’d bring together some of the pictures Atelier has received and share them with you. If you’d like to enter you can gather inspiration from our collection or head over to the competition page here on the site, for tips and tricks on creating the perfect mood lighting for the Christmas season, from a whole host of industry experts
Keep things traditional and go for a classic Christmas look this year with lots of festive lighting; coloured or clear fairy lights will give a bright sparkle against gold or silver tinsel and a lovely big tree. Both Joy Dehany and Adele Knight chose this route when adding festive cheer to their homes this year – and we think they both look winter wonder-land-erful.
Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree
Make your Christmas tree the centrepiece of your home’s Christmas decorations this year by adding a little wow factor. Use a dual colour scheme like Claire Duiker or some show stopping lights to draw the eye in and create a beautiful glow. Grant Robson’s tree features some seriously bright coloured lighting and was shot using our very own photography tips, which you can find here, giving it the wow factor in real life and on film.
It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
Light up your xmas in a more unusual way this year like Lynne Jury Newton or Dee by adding decorations and lighting to parts of the home that don’t usually get a look in. Create a custom Christmas tree for your pet, so they can join in with all the fun or create a unique focal point in lieu of a tree by drafting in an ornamental dress makers doll or another home-made alternative to the traditional Christmas tree
Whatever you do to make your home feel festive this year we hope that our tips and these can help set the merry mood. Here at Atelier we can’t wait to break open the mince pies and carve the turkey; let us know how you’ll be spending Christmas this year and don’t forget to share your #LightUpForXmas snaps with us!
