Chic Home Brands To Brighten Up Your Holidays—And For Year-Round Styling Too

2020 might not have given us many reasons to celebrate, faced with different challenges these past months. Holiday decorations are just one way to make this year feel a little brighter. As I spoke to Society’s favorite event and interior stylist, Cyndi Beltran, she admitted that holiday decorations are “a form of escapism that can uplift the spirits especially for those who had been feeling defeated this year.” She added that over-the-top ornamentation this season was not limited to Christmas decorations.

“There is nothing like a well-lit, lavishly ornamented tree, a sparkling holiday tablescape, or a beautifully accessorized home to remind us that life is still normal, if not, even extraordinary,” she said.

Gone are the days when multicolored Christmas lights and family stockings are the epitomes of Christmas decor. We have probably mastered an intense affair when it comes to holiday decorating; there are even unique themes and trends in every corner! Whether you’re going for an all-out maximalist look or a traditionalist, clean, Scandinavian vibe this season, there is always the perfect décor to dress up your home—and the perfect pair of stilettos to elevate that Swarovski topper over your glorious Christmas tree. So, as you search for fancy Yuletide fineries, here are my favorite home brands that you need to put on your wish list to keep the holiday spirit not just for Christmas but all year-round:

Lagaluche

Not only will this voguish chess set (Queen’s Gambit snappy attitude made us all want to buy one) make your living room look extra sharp together with your ornaments, it will also impress your guests being the sassy hostess that you are. Known for their export quality pieces, Lagaluche is a sure hit for your shagreen fetish and will take your holiday decorating mantra to a whole other level in any season.

Statement Theory

My love affair with chinoiserie is as passionate as my love for my peep-toe Louboutin. What’s so good about this is that it’s rarely a hype but will always be a classic staple. Pro tip: Invest in heirloom pieces that can be enjoyed for years to come.

Style is a charming impact by going classic this holiday. Statement theory is known for its beautiful plate curation. This enchanting plate collection depicts different scenes that weave a charming narrative of life in a traditional country estate. Create a story within your tablescape by making a masterpiece in mixing festive patterns and textures.

Haute Home Manila

My fascination with anything blue and white made it an obvious choice for this ornament. This A-list favorite brand has been popular and in-demand because of its export quality designs. Furthermore, it also served some sparkle to be at MET (The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York) for its non-cliché elaborate items. So, let these ornaments do the talking in your Christmas tree and place a spotlight on any spot in the house you want to showcase.

Ottoman Collection PH

Who doesn’t want to relax their feet on a fancy looking stool? This local brand offers a variety of prints and trimmings to match your festivities or any occasion all year round. Guilty or not, we deserve to be pampered spending those Christian Dior Slides that we all keenly observed this lockdown.

Fornasetti by Opulence Design Concept

What makes this brand special is a collaboration with culture tablescapist, Pinky Tobiano-Robles who styled their well-curated boutique in Connecticut Greenhills every season. Anything Fornasetti elevates any space. Even just having a piece like a small valet tray can polish your holiday vignette or coffee table game strong over the years.

Festive Home PH

There’s always something about personalized plates and glasses that makes my tablescape extra special. I love surprising my family and guests with their trademarks on it. It’s also a graceful excuse to properly accommodate my thoughts on what bijoux to wear for my not so planned holiday flat lay.

Paperbound

A personal favorite of mine, Paperbound is a brand that has a mission, to give a refined approach to stationaries, boxes, and wallpapers. Known for its signature money envelopes with silk tassels, it will definitely level up any home gifting. Its loud and detailed design will surely bring luck and happiness to your loved ones, given as is or by simply using it as a decorative piece on your holiday vignette.

La Vela Daily isn’t just any candle sorcery. This new local brand is known for its unique packaging—garnishing every bottle with its signature crystals, petals, and preserved fruits. The notes of each hand-poured piece definitely reflect the meaning of its label.

Truly, nothing beats the feeling of getting your home all flattering and ready for the holidays—getting your Christmas tree and décor out in the living room and lavishing your entire home with notes of red, green, silver, and gold. Despite the holidays being different this year, those big family gatherings and parties with friends will have to wait, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make your home feel merry and bright this year. These brands will surely kick your Christmas decoration game up a groove, and you’re also supporting local brands! 

2020 might not be the best year for most of us, but the holidays this year will surely be spent in the comforts of your home surrounded by your family so take the time to decorate your home to what speaks your style; whether it’s the over-the-top festivities or the minimalist set-up, as long as it’s something that you have curated and crafted, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
