luxe & peacock blue
1 Lantern magic! Looking for a big impact, no-fuss decorating idea? Just fill clear glass lanterns with a striking mix of baubles in blues, greens and purples. For extra glitz, arrange on a mirrored console, tray or tile!
2 Champagne tastes! Create playful mini vignettes, even with a drinks tray. Just look at this cheeky bird, who appears to be making merry with champagne top-ups. This look suits iridescent glassware and decos, but it’s not essential as long as each piece supports your overall bold blue and precious gold theme.
3 Floral fantasy. Fresh or faux, an abundant arrangement of blue- and pink-hued flowers, berries and foliage in a luxe metallic bowl looks fab on a table surrounded by coloured glass to suit your scheme – decanters, vases and candle votives. Or, it would make a mighty fine centrepiece, too.
Go big on colour
and embrace the many beautiful shades of peacock blue, which looks divine with lustrous gold accents
4 Set the tone for your festive feast with a glam, well-dressed table with as many gold accessories as you can muster. The gold chairs and cabinet are optional extras. For amber goblets, go online or to op shops.
5 Spell it out! Propped on a console table or hung on the wall, create a playful display with a peacock feather wreath and gold letters spelling out a Christmas sentiment. Keep the wall arrangement low to the table so the word connects to the tablescape below and isn’t floating in mid-air.
6 Ever silver! Instead of a full-size evergreen tree, you can create a simple but stylish look with a metallic spray-painted branch in a coloured vase. Then, just dangle your fave baubles among clip-on birds that are all-a-glitter.
Silver birch trees are but a bare branch and a spray of silver paint away!

Velvet curtains and this wallpaper’s dramatic interpretation of an ink- and salt-printed fabric amp up the feeling of luxie luxe!
