Planning for the Christmas scheme typically begins well in advance, where inspiration invariably crops up from numerous and diverse places. This year was no exception.
Suzanne has always had an affinity with the black and white, tweed textured, design style of Coco Chanel, whom arguably represents the most in elegance and class of design. This has been brought into the colour scheme of this year's display with both furniture upholstery and silk fabric sporting this simple yet effective colour combination.
One, also, associates this time of the year with trips off skiing into Europe's reverent Alps enjoying its numerous picturesque ski resorts, nestled in the secure surrounding of the mountain ranges. How fitting, therefore, to host a beautifully snow kissed tree in the foreground of what can only be described as a formal portrayal of palatial architecture befitting of the reverence that the mountain ranges provide.
