The 2017 Christmas Table
Christmas is fast approaching, and that means it’s time to get ready for the festive season. This year, we turn away from the traditional fare and opt for sleek and contemporary table decorations. With an emphasis on simplicity, styling for Christmas in 2017 is all about creating enchanting interiors that speak to your unique tastes and preferences.
Inspired by the beauty of Australia’s natural landscapes, we’ve created three Christmas table looks perfect for entertaining this whole family. Focusing on rich earthy tones and raw materials, these dining settings allow you to repurpose existing household items in fresh and innovative ways.
With these Christmas styling solutions, you’re guaranteed to impress your loved ones on the big day and get your guests talking about your décor choices for the right reasons.
RUSTIC WOOD WONDERLAND
On trend this season are table settings with a strong rustic influence. Opting for materials and fabrics with raw, natural charm allows you to great a relaxing festive atmosphere.
Welcoming in the Christmas spirit by creating a table inspired our abundant bushland surrounds. Cover tables in neutral linen cloths, and use native gums and eucalyptus as an eye-catching table runner.
Play around with wooden accents like timber coasters and serving boards, and showcase the beauty of the outdoors by using branches and dried Australian natives as centrepieces for the table. Recycle vintage jars and metal water cans as vases, and hang fairy lights and candles around the room to create a modern farmhouse aesthetic.
SCANDI MEETS THE SEASIDE
For those lucky enough to live by the ocean, take inspiration from this beautiful natural wonder. The minimalistic interiors of Scandinavian design have become increasingly popular in recent years, and are perfect to pair with Australia’s calm coastal lifestyle.
When it comes to your festive décor, this look emphasises simplicity in colour and design. Keep things light and fresh by creating an all-white Christmas table. Experiment with different fabrics and materials, and layer different textures for visual interest. Incorporate subtle elements of Scandi design by hanging modern geometric Christmas decorations, such as stars made from plywood and branches.
Use beachside accents such as coral and seashells across your table and pair with champagne gold accessories for a fresh and unexpected addition. The emphasis here is on creating continuity, so ensure you keep plates and glassware choice consistent across each setting.
Looking for a little more glamour? Using dramatic metal furnishings will add instant elegance to your Christmas table, and make for a striking modern look.
Stick with one accent shade, such as rose gold or copper, and use this across all aspects of your festive setting. Simple additions like gold cutlery, metallic vases and candle holders will make for a luxurious atmosphere for your guests.
Go bold and try out different crockery shades such as dark greys or even black to make a real statement. Complete the styling with wire fairy lights and clear crystals across your table for a magical yet elegant touch.
