Chocolate Christmas

Warm tones of burnt gold, bronze and deep red inspire this look. Metallic finishes are mixed with natural wood textures to give this trend a homely appeal.

Snowflake

Light, dreamy and soft – this look is defined by the unusual mixture of mint green and muted teal. This is paired with iridescent finishes, and delicate snowflake, star and woodland motifs.

Midnight Velvet

Sumptuous, rich and elegant – this look draws inspiration from the glamour of the 1920′s. The colour palette is limited to deep purples, indigos and black, with metallic highlights.
