Everyone has their own Christmas traditions: a certain hour to open presents, a way to decorate the tree, if there is one, special meals to serve… However, we all share one thing: whether we like it or not, Christmas is the time to come home. Of course, we’re enviously thinking about places in the world where you need nothing but a bikini to celebrate a tropical year’s end. For most of us though, “home” is a synonym for a cosy and warm shelter from where we can contemplate rain, snow or cold winds blowing comfortably nestled on a welcoming sofa.
We thus gathered some homely interiors images that evoke the softness and tranquillity of the end of the year’s break. But Christmas without a little bit of kitsch wouldn’t be a real one, and Larry Sultan’s photograph of a bedroom inhabited by creepy dolls seemed quite appropriate to add a fancy touch to places which are comfy but can also (let’s confess it) get sometimes a little bit boring. Happy Christmas!
