Holidays at home

Christmas might be different this year, but one thing’s certain: dressing up our home for the season remains a much-awaited activity that brings holiday cheer. 

Furniture and furnishings store Crate and Barrel offers four holiday looks that are warm, welcoming, and festive. 

Red and green

Bring the classic holiday colors to the tree and the dining table with a dinnerware collection that features folkloric style complete with bright red beasts, stars, and botanicals; a serving plate, mug, and child-mug trio that captures the whimsy of winter wonderland; hand-painted measuring cups that make for festive kitchen tools; and red and green porcelain and glass ornaments and candles.

Aiming for a cool retro-modern holiday look this year? Pieces from this collection feature understated sophistication that can even suit other occasions beyond the holidays. Ceramic houses that glow with tea light are a wonderful mantel décor or dining table centerpiece, while the plate and fondue set highlights Nordic motifs.

Nordic neutral

Fresh, effortless, and awash in soft organic texture and tones, this look brings a welcome lightness to the holiday season. Warm natural elements such as leaves and stems and pinecones, as well as white and sparkles are heavily featured in dinnerware and ornaments under this collection. It’s a minimalist Scandinavian holiday, for sure.

Nothing says festive quite like jewel tones and plenty of metallic shine as seen in the modern blush hoop wreath, bottle brush Christmas trees, and hand-blown embellished glasses perfect for parties or as a housewarming gift which are part of this range.
