Get The Look: Colourful Christmas


Here at Arlo & Jacob we love bright and beautiful colours, so it should be no surprise that when we set out to stage our idea of the perfect Christmas décor, it included an abundance of colourful ornaments.

colourful Christmas decor

Paper ornaments are everywhere this year and we can’t get enough, they add a far more creative touch to your Christmas decorations. Whether you choose to hang them around the house or on the tree, these decorations will make sure your home is beautifully festive, without breaking the bank. The mirror was a big player in our Christmas shot, it gave depth and dimension to the room and it can do the same for your home. If you have a dark colour scheme, going for a black mirror with gold hardware will be a great fit. We love all the little touches that make a house feel like home and the easiest way to do that is with a candle. Diptyque have released three beautiful scents this Christmas, but our favourite is without a doubt the mixed spice scent.

The Elton featured in this image has become a sort of celebrity and we’re not surprised, it’s stylish, cosy and unique, it’s everything you could want. This Elton Snuggler was part of a limited edition collection that we created for Jennifer Manner’s stand at Decorex this year. The shearling was given to us by the lovely girls at Gushlow & Cole and we couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. There is one available left to buy directly from our showroom.
