With its rich history of traditions and decorations, Christmas offers an endless wellspring of inspiration for interior design. Centuries ago in medieval England, Christmas was a 12-day celebration filled with revelry, feasts and processions, enhanced by decorations, gift exchanges and music. In Germany, where the Christmas tree tradition originated, it became customary to decorate the green branches of fir trees with candles and gifts. This custom gained popularity worldwide during the 19th century, courtesy of the British royal family. Lights have always played an important role in these festivities. Today’s Christmas lights can be traced back to the German candle tradition, with the first electric lights emerging in 1882.
Christmas in style: harmonious festive designs with indoor tiles and decorations
The ambience of Christmas is intrinsically linked to the colours we select to decorate our homes. Christmas colour trends have evolved over time, reflecting both fashion trends and our collective mood. For example, in 2021, Christmas featured tones of emerald green and gold, whereas in 2022, there was a return to tradition with classic red and white colours complemented by touches of pink and Victorian blue.
These colour schemes can be used to create a charming and modern Christmas ambience by combining indoor tiles and decorations. The versatility of porcelain stoneware facilitates the incorporation of these shades, ranging from classic to contemporary tones. This helps create a unique and cosy festive atmosphere in any room.
Wood-effect porcelain stoneware infuses the cosy warmth of the festive season into spaces aiming for a homey feel. Those with an adventurous spirit looking for an avant-garde Christmas can try metal-effect surfaces, whose futuristic reflections beautifully complement bright colours and unconventional decorations.
Elegant simplicity: how to create a festive atmosphere with few details
Amidst the lively festivities of the holiday season, the colours and surfaces offered by Ceramiche Keope seamlessly unite in a delightful harmony, turning spaces into vibrant settings where the distinctive shapes and colours of Christmas come alive.
For those who love elegance and glamour, marble-effect porcelain stoneware offers a luxurious setting. In the Elements Lux collection (pictured), the white-veined surface serves as a canvas for the striking presence of gold and silver decorations. Modern ornaments and glossy accents are tastefully reflected here, creating a visual symphony that celebrates the fusion of luxury and tradition.
In a contemporary living space, the white concrete-effect floor tiles from the Noord collection beautifully complement the Ceppo Grey wall tiles from the Omnia collection, creating an aesthetic standard of refined sophistication. The cool, relaxing colours of these tiles provide an ideal backdrop for the vibrant hues of the Christmas decorations. This contrast creates a delightful interplay of colours that catches the eye and warms the heart.
In the heart and soul of the home – the kitchen, the stone-effect tiles from the Brystone collection transcend practicality to embrace the magic of Christmas. The earthy, natural tones of the tiles blend harmoniously with the green decorations and red berries, imparting a sophisticated yet rustic ambience to the space. Every Christmas decoration, from silver centrepieces to golden garlands, gleams against the stone-inspired background, celebrating the fusion of exquisite festive traditions and contemporary functionality.
To infuse a welcoming and cosy atmosphere into spaces, the Beige-coloured wood-effect tiles from the Evoke collection harmonise with the wood crackling in the fireplace, the hanging mistletoe branches and the natural garlands that gently embrace the soft lights. This combination captures the spirit of a traditional Christmas.
