AW13 Trend Watch

When it comes to festive theming, decor is of the utmost importance. Interesting focal points and interactive details ensure guests engage with the theme, creating an unforgettable experience guaranteed to be talked of for years to come.

This year’s Christmas designs by Ultimate Experience take inspiration from both the classic and the contemporary, to take guests out of London and into curious caverns, winter escapes and the lodges of the infamous après ski. These are our top trends for Christmas 2013.
