Here's a word we'd like to hear more at Christmas: relax.
This room, decorated in the new allen + roth™ holiday collection, embraces a carefree Christmas with an unexpected colour scheme and simple ideas for making décor personal. To complement the room's fresh blues and whites (#ar1223 Sauna on the walls), adorn a tree with metallic and white allen + roth™ ornaments, real blooms, and silver-painted pinecones. Extend the look into the room using coordinated décor, such as elegant pillows (#476399) and vases.
Hang the stockings with care, then gather a few of your favourite things to give the mantel a new look for the holidays. A. Group smaller ornaments with a few larger tabletop items, such as this shining forest of allen + roth™ trees (feather tree: #477153; white ceramic; small mercury glass; large mercury glass. B. An allen + roth™ wreath (#477183) glimmers with embellishments of pinecone ornaments (#477152). C. Personalize an allen + roth™ stocking (#476404) by pinning on a sweet bird ornament (#477150) with a name written in permanent marker.
Move your favourite large vases off the table. Filled with fresh blooms, they'll wow guests even more as a gorgeous floor display in front of the fireplace.

Behind the Collection
We spoke with allen + roth™ designer Marlyn Martínez about the new holiday collection, its inspiration, and her favourite pieces.
Q: How did you create the look and feel of this collection?
A: This collection was inspired by nature, but we decided to go for a sophisticated look more in sync with our exclusive brand, allen + roth™. Botanical patterns, such as leaves and birds, were used, and the fabric in some of the textile products has a linen texture that adds to the natural look. White, champagne, and a light green are the colours that we thought portray this theme best. Mercury glass adds dimension, shine, and a level of sophistication.
Q: Do you have a favourite product? Anything that you'll be adding to your own home?
A: I love the white fabric leaf wreath (#483296), above. It looks so stylish. Also, the ceramic and mercury glass trees look great together on the dining table or mantel area.
Q: What are some ways people could use this new collection with their favourite Christmas decorations?
A: Ornaments offer a lot of opportunities for mixing and matching. We are offering packs of green, white, and champagne colours. Customers can pick the colour that works best with what they already have. For those who currently have a traditional red and- green décor, the champagne mercury glass items will work beautifully. This is also true with tabletop pieces. The mercury glass LED trees could be combined with tones of red or darker traditional green. Also, different hues of blue will look amazing.
