There are few comforting pleasures greater than the sight of one’s own home. For some, this experience is elevated further when they possess knowledge of exactly what lies behind those front doors, be it their favourite palette of earthy hues meant to invite utter calm into their abode, or the common living area where their perfectly curated space dedicated to hours of lounging away lie. For others, a whole other joy lies in the agency to design their home anew, or refashion it into a space to boast about when they have guests over. It’s defining of a moment where they can call their home truly their own.
It only makes sense that the aforementioned might rejoice deeply during this period of time—as the merry season calls upon us all. Invites to both grand affairs and smaller, more intimate parties are starting to run its course and no one is a stranger to the endless number of to-dos these holidays. From preparing those festive-ready outfits to going down that list of gifts to snag, the prep never seems to end. But for those of you who are primed to host at least one of these occasions in your own spaces? Sans the table fare there is perhaps just one additional thing you might have to consider in time to come—ensuring your home is all dressed up as well.
Needless to say, a Christmas tree is the undeniable in-house marker to scream it’s that time of year. It lends to a whole other merry-making experience as well: decorating the tree with a flurry of ornaments that are as magical as the festivities itself. But should your heart lean towards the more understated touch points that speak of a quieter affair, there are an abundance of other options to consider such as switching out your tableware with a more festive-inspired set or allocating a spot on your display shelf for a wondrous snow globe that is reminiscent of the wintry holiday.
If you’re looking for the ideal piece to ring in the festivities, it seems our favourite luxury brands will have you searching no more. Below, peruse Vogue Singapore’s selection of the most beautiful festive decor meant for your abode.
