It’s time to start preparing for Christmas, so we have enlisted our friends at Sweet William Floral Design to help us find the perfect wreath for your door.
A beautifully designed wreath can inject personality and colour in to your home and create a wonderful way to greet someone. Whether you’re looking for something modern or rustic, indulgent or simple, there is a wreath design to suit any door. With the help of sisters Katherine and Natalie of Sweet William in Eaglescliffe, we have some ideas for the perfect Christmas wreath to match different styles of doors.
A festive wreath would look really nice for a more traditional home, our Heritage door has the ideal characteristics. The addition of baubles on this particular wreath adds a contrasting smooth texture to the rustic foliage and natural acorns.
Wild seasonal foliage, dried fruits and natural acorns provide this wreath with a natural look. The combination of seasonal elements with the addition of pheasant feathers adds a softer texture and creates an eye-catching focal point. An alternative to pheasant feathers could include peacock feathers, for those wishing to add a more whimsical look to their wreath. While this has a more rustic look, the switch to wild looking seasonal foliage and pheasant feathers create a less of a traditional feel, meaning it would complement a variety of doors such as the York and Linthorpe doors.
Although this wreath may not appear traditional, many of its contents are, but the choice of colour provide a much more modern feel. It portrays the frosty winter weather associated with the Christmas period. A wreath such as this would be well suited to an Oxford or even contemporary door, especially if the doors finishing touches are also silver.
Top Tip – Don’t just take into consideration the style and colour of your door, it’s also crucial to give some thought to the the size of the space you are working with. Wreaths look their best when they are framed by the area around them as this helps them to look symmetrical.

As we write this post, it’s the start of a new year. The days are slowly getting longer, bird song is increasing by the week, and the first daffodils are starting to appear. Spring is on its way. Which, of course, means spring cleaning and home makeovers. Typically, these makeovers centre around freshening up the […]
We don’t often share ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures on our blog, but we couldn’t pass on showing you one of our recent installs. The owners of this property in Yarm had one of our Kensington entrance doors supplied and fitted a few years ago. When the owners decided that they wanted to create […]
As we get closer to winter and the days become shorter, it’s a good time to start preparing your home for the cold season. As the old saying goes, ‘prevention is better than cure’. Addressing issues and working to make your home more efficient now will mean you’re prepared for whatever winter throws at you. […]
Thank you so much for the windows and front door. They have exceeded my expectations! I was very happy with the two fitters that came, they were very professional, polite and left our house immaculate. I would definitely recommend your firm to a friend and family.

We just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that we are very happy with both our secondary glazing and the new double glazing that has very recently been fitted by ERW Joinery Ltd in our home. Despite having some reservations about the aesthetics and impact it would have on the ‘period’ of the house, we both think the windows look great. In addition to this we have already noticed that the house feels much warmer and also retains the heat for longer. I thought that the advice you gave us was excellent & the attention to detail from yourself and your workforce was so important in helping us decide about the best products. Could you also please pass on our thanks to the workforce who were professional, hardworking and above all craftsmen. We will certainly be happy to recommend your company to any of our friends who may be considering similar work.

From the first visit right through to the final fitting we felt confident in the expertise of the company which had been endorsed by the finished installation of a lovely window.
