INSPIRATIONS FOR YOUR
CHRISTMAS CENTERPIECE

Designer Jonathan Liang, Architect André Fu, and LC Director of Lifestyle Tracy Kwan share their festive styles

Step away from the hustle and bustle of the festive season and bring the magic of a winter wonderland into your home these holidays!


We asked designer Jonathan Liang, architect André Fu, and our very own Director of Lifestyle, Tracy Kwan how their design aesthetic influences their own interior festive tendencies, and, most importantly, how they trim their tree.

Modern Classic

Designer Jonathan Liang, Lane Crawford Creative Call Out 2018 Sydney runner-up

What does your “festive style” look like year to year?


I tend to go for something minimal in my own space. We have mono-coloured white candles around, a centerpiece of oak wood and thistles, and the tree remains a lush green decorated with a variation of crystal, whites and silver. The look in general is a classic lush tree full of festivity.


What decorations on and off the tree are most important to you?


My favourite is a mother-of-pearl egg with Swarovski embellishments that we got at Fortnum & Mason during our last Christmas trip to London in 2017 – all the ornaments we've acquired over the years during our travels are the most important to me. Every time we've moved, I've brought them with us.


What does Christmas mean to you, and how does it connect to the look of your tree and your Christmas decorating style?


My mum was an avid tree decorator at Christmas. I can see how she loved doing it, but when we kids came along, she let it go and allowed us to decorate – however horribly – and she’d still praise us for it. It’s always about the feeling of nostalgia for me. My decorations tend to be items of memories, things I place around so we can reminisce, and it’s always been minimal because that's been my aesthetic since day one. Declutter is the word!


Do you have any decorating traditions?


Yes — the youngest in the family places the star on the top of the tree!

Colour and Curios

Architect André Fu of André Fu Living

What does your “festive style” look like year to year?


I believe in going back to the spirit of authenticity. Setting up a tree is an annual ritual at my apartment, as well as for the studio. The accent colour might evolve year after year, but this winter I’m opting for sage green as the theme. I’ve collected a range of artisanal ornaments in bronze and glass throughout my travels, and collectively they’re hung in combination with preserved eucalyptus leaves, pine cones and silk ribbons in an accent shade.


What decorations on and off the tree are most important to you?


I find Christmas ornaments a reflection of a family’s tradition — they evoke childhood memories and a sense of heritage. I tend to gravitate towards trees that aren’t overly stylised.


What does Christmas mean to you, and how does it connect to the look of your tree and your Christmas decorating style?


I’ve always been perceived to have a more modern aesthetic, but Christmas is a rare occasion where I opt for a more classical approach. It’s perhaps the time of the year when I feel nostalgic.


What do you do traditionally do at Christmas?


I tend to stay in town and spend time with family and friends. It’s also a key time for me to rejuvenate myself after my hectic travel schedule during the year.

Twinkle Twinkle

Lane Crawford Director of Lifestyle Tracy Kwan

What does your “festive style” look like year to year?


For me the aim of festive decor is to bring warmth and happiness to the home. Key essentials for our family are firstly a very nice, fresh, fragrant pine tree, and a sweet little wreath. We take such joy from selecting the ornaments, dressing the tree, appreciating the gorgeous pine smell of it and seeing the twinkling Christmas lights. Our children also love to get a couple of little dollies to hang up to make it relevant for themselves, which is very cute!


What decorations on and off the tree are most important to you?


In Hong Kong SAR, we don’t have the luxury of having fireplaces at home, so festive lights become a very important element to creating warmth and romance. Apart from having lights on the tree, I have candles around the living and dining room, and more lights hung by the window. Once all that decor is up, I immediately feel peaceful.


What does Christmas mean to you, and how does it connect to the look of your tree and your Christmas decorating style?


I normally go for a very clean palette for my décor, like white, glass and silver — I just love how elegant it looks; and it doesn’t overpower the beauty and simplicity of the tree itself.


What do you traditionally do at Christmas?


Christmas is the best time for the whole family to get together to celebrate joy and be thankful. I make sweet treats with the kids — a traditional gingerbread house, marshmallow rice crispy cakes and hot chocolate — and after dinner, we always go out for a walk to look at the beautiful Christmas lights. Sometimes we might go on the Star Ferry, and the walk always ends with ice cream.
