A WHITE CHRISTMAS

Dreaming of a white Christmas? I think perhaps this year we may need to create our own. We’ve selected some Nkuku gifts and homewares along with some of our own homemade creations to create the perfect wintery white backdrop for a magical Christmas.

For a frosty ice look rustic silver and cool whites create the perfect winter look. For the table select a strong stand out piece such as our Chunti wreath. The two hundred  individual baubles on this piece will ensure you make a statment. Place traditional church candles in the centre et voila!

Add some sparkle to the table by using reflective surfaces with different textures. Mirrored t lights and rustic finishes are perfect for this effect.  Scatter t lights as well as as well as taller pieces such as candlesticks to create variations in height. String smaller t lights up on fishing wire to create pretty candlelit garlands and fill window sills, and sideboards with them too.

These antique mirrored photograph frames add an elegant touch to a sideboard or dresser. Black and white photographs look particularly good. The dappled mirror glass will reflect the candle light and add to the pretty atmopshere.

Create your own wreath to welcome people to your door. Add some splashes of white or silver to complete the look. Lastly, you can’t beat fairy lights to add a magical glow: place them on the table, hang them around the mantelpiece or staircase.  Choose clear glass bulbs to keep the winter white look.

Whatever your theme have a magical Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
