Proof, if it were needed, that the key to the festive season is preparation. So, with that in mind, welcome to this year’s ELLE Decoration take on Christmas.However you celebrate, it should be about keeping things completely personal. Don’t feel dictated to. Everything – from the way you decorate your home to the gifts you buy – must be a reflection of who you are and what you stand for. Who’s to say which…

beyond holly & ivy

THE MODERN WREATHFor a big statement, create an arcing, super-sized display that’s more suited to a wall than a front door – our muse for this look is stylist Anastasia Benko, who created this deconstructed wreath (above) for decor8blog.com. Use plants such as eucalyptus and ruscus-leaved bamboo, which look just as dramatic when dried, and twist fern fronds until they form a fragile halo of delicate leaves.FRESH PICKINGSAlways use British greenery, such as ferns, herbs and moss, as well as winter-time plants, to add a just-been-on-a-ramble feel to your decorations. ‘At this time of year, I’m in the habit of going out with a pair of secateurs and collecting prunings from the countryside,’ says garden writer Kendra Wilson (kendrapagewilson.com). ‘Trails of ivy are easy to find and I might also…

maximalist christmas

GO TO EXTREMES‘Christmas decorations can look a bit too tasteful – if ever there’s a time for embracing colour and pattern, it’s the bleak midwinter,’ says designer Luke Edward Hall (lukeedwardhall.com). It seems the high street agrees: ‘The use of colours outside of red, green and gold has skyrocketed,’ explains Geraldine James, buying manager for Home at Selfridges. ‘People used to dress the tree to match their home – now it stands on its own in an extrovert way.’From left ‘Snakeshead’ fabric (as curtain) by Morris & Co, £61 per metre, Style Library (stylelibrary.com). ‘SE68’ dining chair by Egon Eiermann, from £370, Please Wait To Be Seated (pleasewaittobeseated.dk). ‘Container’ table by Moooi, £1,607, Houseology (houseology.com). ‘Gemini’ candleholder by Peter Karpf for ArchitectMade, £6, Royal Design (royaldesign.co.uk).
