Creating a Christmas Ready Home

Creating a Christmas Ready Home

With chilling winds, dreich days, and early sunsets, we spend a lot of time indoors over the festive period. It’s also the season of entertaining, supper parties, post-walk hot-chocolates, and hordes of relatives making camp in any and every spare room available. Grandparents in the guestroom, in-laws on the sofa-bed, and the young in the make-shift attic dormitory. What better time of year to make sure every corner of your home exudes Christmas luxury? Give your guests some impressive comfort, and give yourself some well deserved opulence with a little Voyage magic!

 

Time To Shine - The Dressing Table

We’ve had few opportunities to enjoy the art of ‘getting ready’ since the start of 2020 - the ritual of choosing an outfit, pouring yourself a glass of something sparkling, listening to your favourite playlist, and applying one’s maquillage in front of the mirror. It’s a precious time, a moment of calm before the madness. You’re bound to be rushed off your feet this festive season, so make sure your little nook of sanity is bedecked with items that inspire and delight you. We love how glamorously zen our Eternity Antique Silver Mirror looks in this scene, matched so well with the rich blue and purple palette of the wallpaper and soft furnishings. The space is finished using one of our Ikon footstools, a colourfully charming and dainty addition, elevating the practical to the glamorous. It’s a busy time of year, so don’t skimp on caring for yourself!

 

A Dazzling Dining Table

The art of making your dining room feel festive needn’t involve large wreaths and fake robbins. By using bold gold features and regal purples, a subtly festive aura is created - arguably a room ready for ‘We Three Kings’. To give your festive dining room a lavish vibe, allow a cushion for each diner, layer your table with the tasteful crockery and glassware, and create space for candles.

 

Dream A Little Dream

The perfect Bedroom

Whether your guests stay for a short and sweet stint, or descend for longer than you originally expected, it is a real kindness to provide them with a sanctuary - a room of retreat for sleep and rest. How lovely for your guests to leave thinking they couldn’t have had a nicer stay in a boutique hotel! We recommend being generous with your bedding: ample cushions, a thick and warm bedspread, and ideally a hot water bottle inserted below the covers an hour before bed to ensure toasty loved ones. To give your guests that sense of being on holiday, light one of our divine scented candles, pile a tower of inviting books on the nightstand, and place a few choice trinkets around the room. Advisory warning - these irresistible elements might lead to guests outstaying their welcome, so use with care!
