Close your eyes and envision a room decked out in holiday decorations: You're likely to think of colourful ornaments, pine cones, and winterberry wreaths. Red and green — the typical colour duo of Christmas — probably features prominently. Now, what if we tell you that Ikea's holiday collection this year looks nothing like that?
Inspired by the snow-capped mountains of Iceland in the wintertime, the home retailer's October 2017 line up features neutral white and grey hues and lots of sparkle — in the form of shiny plastic chandeliers and LED table embellishments. The line up feels more Frozen than in-your-face Christmas, but very cozy nonetheless. For those of you craving traditional holiday touches? Don't fret: Santa is still making an appearance in the form of miniature ornaments.
