Get the Look: John Lewis Christmas Advert 2014 #montythepenguin

It’s fast becoming the event that marks the start of Christmas in the UK, overtaking even the Coca Cola lorry in the nations festive conscience – the John Lewis Christmas advert. A snowman looking for a gift for his snow wife (2012), the Bear and the Hare (2013) and this year, a boy and his penguin.


What delighted us this year was the home in which the advert is set; a boys bedroom, the kitchen and putting up decorations in the living room. All are tastefully decorated (even if it is a set) and, as John Lewis would have intended, inspired us to see how to recreate the look.

The Chromologist

About

The Chromologist is a colour whisperer. He understands and knows them better than they know themselves, translating their pleas to be used beautifully for humankind. It's unknown from whence he came. Some say the fraction of space between a prism and a spectrum, others say he toiled in the fabled colour mines of Svalbard for years untold, deep underground, speaking only to the reds and blues, cerises and aquas, bronze and golds...
