It is the season to be….jolly stylish! Christmas style countdown – Day 1!

Yes it’s the season to be jolly, but it’s also the season to be jolly stylish and our Interior Design elves have been hard at work creating festively seasoned, style-inspiring windows at our World of Style showroom. Countdown the days to Christmas with us as we profile each World of Style Christmas window setting.

With our Australian Christmas being a summer one, we’re going to start with the World of Style Resort Christmas theme – in a nutshell, this style is what Christmas looks like when it packs its bags and heads to the seaside.

If you’re serving up a summer feast of seafood barbeque platters with crisp salads on Christmas Day and you love natural sandy tones and crisp white linens, then this style might be for you.

The Resort World of Style theme includes tailored coastal looks from Malibu to the Maldives and this year, our Resort Christmas window draws on the likes of our Ubud Bali, Airlie Beach and Legian Bali themes for inspiration.

To replicate a Resort Christmas look, focus on:

  • A blend of raw timber and natural fibres. Wool, hessian, subdued golds and feathers fit the Resort style to a tee

  • There’s no fear here of being too eclectic – differently shaped decorations are fine, just stick with similar colours and materials

  • Instead of shiny tinsel, use an interesting, natural garland for you tree – you could even make your own paper chain

  • Tree is from Myer and decorations mostly from the House and Garden range at Myer
