Christmas 2016 Confirmation: Stellar


Inspired by the mesmerising cosmos, Christmas 2016 Direction Stellar takes design cues from planets, the night sky and starry lights. We explore how this galactic direction is appearing on the market within seasonal decorations and home accessories.

  • This direction is dominated by metallics and silver in particular, appearing in tabletop accessories. The palette includes shades of blue, emerald and purple as well as a bright orange, reminiscent of the northern lights.
  • Translucent, iridescent glass, foils and mirrored decorations create a play with light and reflection, whilst we see a darker, petrol-like iridescence in tabletop accessories.
  • Stars and moons are evident as a decoration theme, appearing in tableware and smaller decorations that bring celestial wonder to this season's style.
