Christmas Collection 2022
This year I designed a small capsule collection for Christmas which included our classic reversible tartan and corduroy tree skirts as well as metal peace dove ornaments and tree toppers that were sprayed painted in cream and red. I wanted to dress all parts of the tree; from the bottom, middle and right to the top. The dove is our brand mark, Palumbo is a surname of Italian origin, derived from Palombo literally meaning "Ring Dove". The Palumbo family crest depicts a dove with an olive branch in its beak. Due to this many consider the meaning of Palumbo to be "Dove of Peace". I thought that having peace doves adorning your tree would bring good and positive energy to the home and would make lovely gifts. I also love papier-mâché so wanted to explore the possibilities of using this medium. I worked with a very talented local artist who painted the antique gold finish onto both stars, large and small. They made a fantastic feature in my home hanging across two large French doors that lead onto the terrace.
