5 Beautiful Festive things…

by Vicky Bullen

For Christmas we have found you five pieces of beautiful inspiration with a festive theme. We hope you enjoy them.

At Coley Porter Bell we believe in making brands beautiful. Beautiful brands are based on a beautiful truth. They stand out from the crowd, they play on your mind and leave a lasting impression.They are beautifully thought, beautifully realised and beautifully effective.

We hope you all have a beautiful Christmas and New Year.

With our best wishes for 2010

beautifully dressed for christmas: Luella Bartley, Liberty’s

This year, the beautifully eclectic department store Liberty has teamed up
with British designer Luella Bartley to create a unique take on British
Christmas traditions. With a giant tinsel robin and traditional patriotic
scenes of living rooms over-decorated with paper chains, Christmas cards
and tacky decorations, this window display is guaranteed to get you in
the Christmas spirit… well worth a look if you can brave Regent Street
this year!


Happy Christmas!

To get into the festive mood, what better way than to be greeted each morning this month by our joyous Wonder Wall at Coley Porter Bell. Kitsch, festive, bright and humorous, our Wonder Wall has been decorated with an army of blow-up santas and snowmen all dressed in red, green and white.

You can’t help but smile when you see 30 round faces smiling back at you! :) Happy Christmas one and all!
