We'd style it similarly to this living room look. Mid-century modern furniture, an animal print rug, and lots of wooden to complement the warm finish of this fixture.

Some buyers complained of stained feather and 'yellow' glue

We would want to keep this feather wreath up all year round! Perfect if you don't like too much fuss and frills when it comes to your Christmas decor, this would love lovely on a front door, or as you can see here above a simply decorated mantel – watch those candles though!

Personally, we'd style as part of an icy white Scandinavian Christmas decorating scheme, with metallic blue and silver baubles and accessories. Made from Goose feathers, it's unfortunately not suitable for vegans but looks so swish nonetheless.

What is the purpose of a Christmas wreath?

'A Christmas Wreath on your front door really adds the finishing touch to your home,' says Jack Anderson, assistant plant manager at Squire's Garden Centers (opens in new tab).

'Choose a real wreath adorned with cinnamon sticks and pine cones or an artificial wreath, some of which even come with LED lights wrapped around them to twinkle on your front door.'

What is the best greenery for Christmas wreaths?

'The thing I love about making your own wreaths and garlands is that you can get creative and add in whatever you may have in the house, like other dried plants you may have old ornaments you may have or even dried fruits like oranges or grapefruit!' says Tom Lawrence-Levy, interior designer at Natural Asthetik (opens in new tab)
