Purodeco autumn and christmas styling at Iittala 1

 

My choice of color is pure white and various red tones from the traditional red to pink, orange and copper brown. A choice made for capturing the seasonal colors from the autumn to the Christmas. The red tones are inspired by the beautiful autumn colors from the nature. According to Feng Shui, white symbolizes the metal energy belonging to the autumn. Plenty of lamps, candlesticks and lanterns to create a warm, relaxed atmosphere for both the dark autumn evenings and for the expectations before Christmas. A time to light candles and get together!
