9 steps to a magical modern Christmas

Create a mid-century Narnia
Create a mid-century modern Narnia with a pull-out-the-stops mural as a backdrop to a shimmering, icy tree. Lay a powder-snow-soft rug for the perfect Christmas morning scene.


Add glitzy sparkle
Start the festive mood as soon as you come in with floor-to-ceiling glitzy sparkle and boughs of holly for a hit of tradition.


Unite different elements
Unite rustic wood, aged metal and glitter for a cool update on the traditional festive constellation. And make magical use of metallic cake stands with a bag of thrifty tea lights.


Heap silver sugar dragees onto a cake
Heap silver sugar dragees onto fresh icing for a simple but stunning statement cake. A collection of mini trees and a cheeky bird complete the fairy-tale centrepiece.


Use frost spray
Use frost spray and a cardboard stencil to create an instant frosty window with bauble-shaped peep holes. Finish with ribbons and bows.


Create a magical Christmas
Pretty tree decorations like this oversized bauble will give your Christmas tree a bold look.


Hang a centrepiece above a table
Save space by hanging a centrepiece above your feast-laden table. Strung with baubles and lights, it's a sleek alternative to candles and holly, and it won't obstruct your view of guests as they gather round.


Display baubles
Take baubles up a notch with cool ways to display. Add jewel-like contrast to a vintage-style birdcage or rest mega decs on the floor for laid-back festive glamour.
