Introducing 2025 Festive Trends
The 2025 festive season is heavily driven by escapism. Stepping into other worlds and eras, whether that be an elegant vintage soirée or an ancient landscape, provides householders with much-needed immersive distraction.
A central theme this season is the ability to find our sense of ‘awe’ again, not only through the usual drama and luxury of the festive season but also in the gentle balance of the natural world and the changing seasons.
