Our Christmas 2015 Design Direction Funland displays a playfully creative approach to seasonal décor. In this visual blog post, we explore how this lively aesthetic has translated to market, highlighting the range of festive accessories available this year.
- A palette of super-brights drawn from paint pigments and plastic hues point towards the synthetic nature of this direction. Flat applications and white backdrops place focus on the mix of vivid shades.
- Handmade decorations provide a feast of colour, pattern and textural play, with tactile finishes found in wrapped yarns and textile details. Hand-painted papers add to the crafted look, while oversized paper cut-outs make for bold window displays.
- Designs encourage a DIY-at-home approach, with simple shapes repeated en masse for spontaneous and playful décor compositions – particularly seen in contemporary approaches to advent calendars.
