Everyone has different opinions about when the countdown really starts, but we here at Dotmaison think it's fair to say that Christmas is definitely on its way! In fact, it's just over a month away. With this in mind, we think that many of us will be preparing for the holiday-time with bated breath.
We have plenty of ideas to celebrate here at Dotmaison. The countdown itself can be celebrated with advent calendars while you decorate around the home with various highlights. If you're going to install a tree in the home – either an organic one or an artificial one – there are a host of designer decorations perfect for adding a sparkle and wealth of colour to the festive scene.
Part of the beauty of Christmastime is the anticipation that builds up as the day draws nearer. This looking forward with delight is the central draw of advent calendars. Based on the idea of offering a little treat or spark of delight under a mystery pocket or opening of all 24 days of December before Christmas Day, advent calendars are a tradition that can be beautifully styled with modern design.
The Christmas Star Narrow Advent Calendar by Ferm Living is a perfect way to celebrate the onset of Xmas. Ideal for hanging on a door or on the wall, the calendar is tall and thin so can be adapted to a variety of different spaces. Comprising 24 pockets for little treats for each new morning, the calendar is made of soft cotton. Ideally poised to bring wonder to the Christmas countdown. Available in different colours, the calendar makes a stylishly produced addition to the home ahead of the holidays.
Brilliant Christmas styling and ornamentation is provided with really finesse by the Georg Jensen 2020 Christmas Ornament Mobile Ice Flower. Available in gold and palladium, the wonderfully crafted piece brings a glorious artistry to the home during the holidays. Designed by Sanne Lund Traberg, the two-part mobile comes with a smart ribbon making hanging up around the home a secure and easy process. Inspired by organic nature, the decoration offers a certain magic to the home this Christmas.
Also from the treasure trove of Georg Jensen is the 2020 Christmas Candleholder Ice Dianthus & Rosette. Ideal for adding a special glow of candlelight during the holiday period and beyond, the candleholder is a celebration of Scandinavian style and ingenuity. This plus the gold or palladium plating bestows a glorious look for the home. Great for bringing in an extra element of Christmas magic!
