Home, a place to settle down, is also symbolic of the taste of the resident. Through the entrance and into the dining area and the living room, the aesthetics and lifestyle are slowly unraveled. With the season of reunion around the corner, let us select the ideal accessories and decorate the home with warmth and comfort.
踏入 Cartier 的精緻世界，除了珠寶腕錶耐人尋味，其居家擺件及配件系列也悄然昇華了日常分秒，自趣味遊戲、旅行配件、書寫工具、嬰兒玩具、生活裝飾等，延伸到生活中所有值得珍視的地方。集細緻美感與節日氛圍於一身，美洲豹的生動姿態能在各系列中尋得，恣意遊走於柏樹間，受伊斯蘭藝術啟發的藍綠配色，秉承了 Cartier 的色系傳統。Diabolo de Cartier 系列兼具優雅大膽，印刻品牌門僮和紅盒圖案，行李牌、隨身鏡、雪球裝飾、托盤和井字棋等作品均飾以紅色，並首次採用海軍藍，相映成趣，彷彿在聖誕樹下重返童年，歡笑不斷的記憶美好猶新。
若想體驗道地的英式聖誕氣息，Wedgwood 所推出的「銀白聖誕」系列是個好選擇。不僅適合盛裝聖誕餐點，置於餐瓷表面的圖案也相當符合格魯吉亞聖誕節，汲取三大經典圖樣：冬青樹、槲寄生花環以及格魯吉亞聖誕樹，進而引領人們理解聖誕節的意趣由來，從傳統裝飾的演變至聖誕樹的信念象徵，處處顯露 Wedgwood 極其細膩的設計巧思。以純淨優雅的銀白餐瓷迎接耶誕來臨的喜悅，搭配色彩繽紛的佳餚美饌，一場華麗的 Xmas 旅程正於餐桌展開。
多彩、獨特的裝飾細節可為冬季的家居內飾增添溫暖、光亮和微妙奢華感。近日備受推崇的室內設計師 Katharine Pooley，分享了不畏時光流轉的典雅裝飾元素：綠色孔雀石、白色陶瓷、石英與有機紋理的金色飾品。孔雀石鯊革相框以 24K 鍍金工藝製作，長方形孔雀石與鯊革內嵌相互呼應，實屬相片最佳綠葉。而金色裂紋陶瓷花瓶以有機紋理為靈感設計，其渾然天成的自然型態，使人一見傾心。可人的魚形石英碗以上乘石英水晶製成，碗邊點綴著 24K 金魚小雕像，為梳妝台和邊桌的理想裝飾，送禮自用皆宜。
With Joy and Vitality
In the exquisite world of Cartier, besides the brilliant selection of jewelry and watches, the home collection and accessories elegantly sublimate everyday life, ranging from board games, travel accessories, desk accessories, baby gifts, decorative objects and more. Delicate, majestic and festive, the Panthère de Cartier can be found throughout the collections. Like wandering among the cypresses, the beast and the blue arabesques motifs inherit the color traditions of Cartier. Meanwhile, bold but elegant, the Diabolo de Cartier collection features a selection of luggage tags, compact mirror, Christmas ornaments, trinket trays and games like tic tac toe—all in red and carved with the iconic bellman and red box. Some items are even reimagined in navy blue to capture the beautiful moments shared under the Christmas tree.
English Christmas Table
If you want to experience a traditional English Christmas, then the Winter White collection by Wedgwood is a good choice. Not only perfect for your Christmas desserts, the tableware is decorated with intricate motifs of holly, mistletoe, wreaths and fir trees, taking us on a journey to understand the origins of a Georgian Christmas. From the traditional embellishments to the symbols of the holiday, everything reflects Wedgwood’s ingenious design concept. As the pure, elegant silver tableware celebrates the arrival of the holiday season, a spectacular Christmas journey is about to begin.
Colorfully distinctive decorative details can often add a sense of warmth, brightness and subtle luxury to the interiors during winter. As one of the most respected luxury interior designers, Katharine Pooley shares a few decorative elements that defy the passage of time—malachite, white ceramic, quartz and textured gold ornaments. Handcrafted with 24K gold plating, the Malachite Frame features rectangular malachite detailing, set against a shagreen inlay to highlight the precious moment depicted. Drawing inspiration from textures found in the natural world, the Crackled Gold Porcelain Vase is evocative and memorably beautiful. Lastly, the Fish Quartz Bowl, crafted from the finest quartz crystal, is adorned with a 24K gold plated goldfish figurine. This iconic Katharine Pooley piece is perfect for the dresser or side table and makes a gorgeous present.
