·2-min read

John Lewis & Partners has revealed its top Christmas decorating themes for 2021. The festive trends offer a celebration of British scenery, both urban and rural, with a generous dose of magic and whimsy.

'From windswept coastlines, to babbling rivers, the colours and feelings we discovered over the last year have inspired the looks we have created for the upcoming festive season,' says Jason Billings-Cray, Christmas Buyer. 'We know many of our customers have found the outdoors to be a tonic at a very strange time and that, even with the reopening of the world, this new love affair is here to stay.'

Last year, John Lewis opened its online Christmas shop in late August, 10 days earlier than the year before, after recording a 370 per cent year-on-year increase for Christmas searches online.

The retailer starts planning for Christmas over a year in advance to research and create its seven trends.

The Gemstone Forest look is all about magical forests, mythical creatures and a fairytale-like landscape. The decorating scheme incorporates rich colours that can be found in the forest at twilight with accent brights giving this luxurious look a fun finish.

This Luxe City Christmas decorating trend is inspired by cities and their brilliant architecture. A contemporary theme, with a fashion forward colour palette, it plays on the geometry found in towering buildings and the warm glow of city lights.

Copper river is inspired by the river's natural stream of flowing water and it's wildlife such as trout, otters and kingfishers. The combination of copper and the varying blues of the water come together to create a serene but decadent look.

The natural patterns found in ocean waved sand, salty rocks and barnacled sea creatures has inspired the Blush Coast decorating theme. The blush tones and sea blues capture the coast at the magical moment just after the sun has set.

Virtual reality, cartoons and how they reinvent the natural world is the inspiration for the Technicolour Supernature Christmas theme. With punchy colours and exaggerated features, this is pure escapism with a big pinch of fun and optimism. This Christmas tree trend is predicted to be a huge hit with children.
