THIS Christmas banish seasonal stress by taking inspiration from the latest decor themes for your tree.

We asked designers to round up three styles that are in fashion – frosty, copper or emerald,


“Our Snowy forest tree trend uses lots of silver tones and snow-tipped animals to bring a midwinter landscape to life,” said Lee Jackson, Christmas stylist and designer for Dobbies garden centres.

“A traditional colour-combo of red and white is classic, but this interpretation is fresh but simple and conjures a stylishly serene, icy winter wonderland.”


“Our amber story inspired by the golden tones of autumnal forests is my absolute favourite,” said Fionnuala Johnston, senior designer for John Lewis.

“This colour theme has natural layers of beautiful tones from amber through to rich chestnut.

“This beautiful rustic environment full of wildlife has a cosy and warm feel, making me want to snuggle up with fur throws and mulled wine after a long walk.”


“This pays a nod to the sensory haven of a tropical rain forest and the Emerald collection incorporates clear glass, feathers and tropical leaves to create a lush, luxe Christmas setting,” said Dan Cooper, Christmas buyer for John Lewis.

“Inspired by nature, these decorations feature toucans, dragonflies, snails and parrots, with succulents and moss as well, to create an enchanting festive wonderland.

“A favourite is the Banana Leaf hanger, a glass decoration shaped as an on-trend monstera leaf in a vivid green hue.”
