Christmas is coming to a department store near you!

One of the best things when doing my Christmas shopping is the Christmas windows of the shops - the VERY extravagant windows that is, which never fail to lift my spirits and make me feel all Christmassy. I was in London a couple of weeks ago and I was amazed by the stunning windows of the larger department stores which of course have impressive Christmas decorations every year, but this time they blew my mind. Unfortunately I haven't managed to take proper photographs due to the large number of people passing by and not  letting me take a proper photograph! Yet, I was glad to find them online. Enjoy the eye candy :)

Harvey Nichols' frosty winter wonderland:


Harrods who joined forces with Swarovski for a concept resembling The Chronicles of Narnia:






Selfridges' windows which are based on a Christmas Carols concept and actually play music (!):


all images were taken via marieclaire.co.uk

Feeling Christmassy already? :)

  16. Well hey there M, Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

    Loved this post as this is something I do annually and I'm kind of Visual merchandising obsessed! I also took hideous amounts of snaps when I was in London, but missed Knightbridge!
