We all want our homes to feel a little magical at Christmas time. But for Neptune, this is achieved through a quieter, more pared-back approach to traditional decorating. Here, we reveal the inspiration behind the brand’s newest collection as well as top tips on how to create a scheme that transcends the festivities, so you can celebrate winter in your home all season long.

Incorporating texture into your home will keep it feeling cosy, whatever the season. But with winter just around the corner, it’s time to start making it a statement within your decorating scheme.
New season additions to the brand’s vast selection of sheepskin rugs, textured cushions and woven wool blankets include the Eira throw and scatter cushion, featuring a contemporary print inspired by traditional Welsh blankets. ‘While the sumptuously thick weave is invitingly cosy on chillier evenings, the neutral grey and cream colour palette and subtle geometric pattern is designed to work throughout the season – not just at Christmas,’ says Nicky Line, Product Director at Neptune.
Love winter’s palette
Classic red and green schemes will always be timeless. But if you’re looking for something a little bit more rustic, decorate your dining room in shades of bronze, brass and off-white. Lay the table with personal keepsakes and place cards, and finish by draping swathes of freshly picked winter foliage along the length of the table. ‘Our foil glass accessories offer a natural glimmer reminiscent of wintery light, perfect for creating atmosphere’, says Nicky.
More than any other season, Christmas is when we truly embrace the idea of traditions and rituals, from advent countdowns and homespun stockings to popping a five pence piece into your Christmas pud. Start as you mean to go on with the new Eve calendar – a row of tiny wooden houses each holding a thin taper, offering a cosy glow from December 1st all the way to Christmas Day.
There’s something wonderful about building your own collection of treasured decorations. ‘In our household, each member of the family picks out a new decoration to add to the tree’, says Nicky. ‘All our decorations come in their own cotton pouch, so you can be sure they’ll stay safely wrapped up, ready to make an appearance every year, and passed down through generations’.
