Celebrate this year's festivities with a classic red and gold Christmas theme. These customary Christmas colours bring a heart-warming, traditional mood to all seasonal rituals. Select from our tempting array of vivid decorations to create an eye-catching display. If seeking Christmas decor ideas, nostalgic ornaments of classic Christmas characters – such as Father Christmas and Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer – have an endearing quality and are a lovely gift for families with young children. Alternatively, opt for smart red and gold accessories, such as candle holders and lanterns, which can be arranged on mantelpieces, tables and windowsills to create an atmospheric festive scheme. To continue the red and gold Christmas theme and add texture, festive decor would not be complete without traditional foliage. Our faux selection includes realistic garland and wreath designs in classic colours of red and green. For a striking arrangement, mix foliage with berries, red Christmas flowers and glittering gold details.
One of the most quintessential Christmas sights is a magnificent spruce decorated with red and gold Christmas tree decorations. Our extensive collection of red and gold baubles range from nostalgic themes to more unusual designs. For a traditional approach, our specialist Pavilion Broadway curation includes classic-shaped baubles in ornate finial and round forms. This collection also offers enchanting British-themed motifs, such as a traditional red post box and classic tartan decorations – perfect for gifting to loved-ones who are passionate about British culture. For a rather different approach, Gisela Graham’s collectable red and gold designs include exotic animal baubles and romantic motifs which have a contemporary mood.
Deep reds have a long British heritage of being used to create cosy interiors, and this rich tone was one of the Victorian’s favourite paint colours. If opting for red walls, Farrow and Ball’s traditional red paints take inspiration from the past yet are beautifully suited to create a bold, modern scheme. Many patterns also look particularly handsome in rich red and gold tones – from classic paisleys to ornate oriental rug prints – and add comforting warmth underfoot or on soft furnishings. Look to Duresta’s bold prints and Nourison’s rugs to imbue interiors with rich designs. Traditional styles of furniture are another way to bring a relaxed and luxurious mood into our homes. Timeless button back sofas and chairs, such as our selection from Carlton Furniture, have a smart vintage appeal that adds a sense of history to living room schemes. To imbue a traditional mood through smaller items, look to decorations such as leather clocks by Libra and Pacific Lifestyle’s classic table lamps.
