It's that time of year again! We are so excited about Christmas and inspired by the traditional decorations and styling that we have seen... gone are the days of only silver and gold decorations and we are embracing the colour!
We are particularly drawn to the rich burgundy, fuchsia and antique rose in the shops and on social media. Below are a selection of our favourite images from the Wickenden Hutley archive and inspiration from Instagram and blogs.

Whether you have children in the house or not, we all love to be reminded of the magic of Christmas. The current resurgence of antique decorations means it is now very easy to create a more personal style for your tree and decorations.
We love to recommend purchasing a few pieces every year that represent what you have achieved or where you have been (a little house for a house move, an animal for a new pet or decorations from your travels etc.). You will soon have a good collection and will love to get them out every year and remember the various events. Below is our selection of finds to 'Get the Look' for your festive entertaining...
