The 12 shades of Christmas: how to achieve a festive ambience this December

Christmas. You either love it or you hate it, right? Well actually… it’s not so binary.

There are those whose Scroogelike tendencies shatter when watching the latest holiday flick. Those who enthusiasm peaks too high, too soon. Those whose love of receiving presents is offset by the hassle of bestowing them.

Just as there are infinite variations of ‘Christmas spirit’ out there, there exists a whole range of festive colours to choose from, in order to create a perfect ambience this December.

Introducing…the Philips Smart Bulb, which - along with Retrotouch’s Smart Switch - provides the perfect way to illuminate your home during the holiday season.



Boasting 16 million colours, alongside dimmable shades of white light, the Philips Smart Bulb allows users a dizzying array of options for their lighting setup. And, in combination with the Retrotouch Smart Switch, you can control up to 50 Philips Hue lights and lamps simultaneously, which can be placed anywhere in the home.

By teaming up with Philips, and becoming part of their ‘friends of hue’ fraternity, we’re delighted to be recognised as an official provider of integrated lighting solutions, allowing customers to get the most out of their products.

Our wireless, battery-free switches can control up to 50 Philips Hue lights and lamps simultaneously, and can be placed anywhere in the home. The switch connects directly to the Philips Hue Bridge using EnOcean technology, and you won’t need to purchase an additional Smart Home Hub to get it working. As soon as your switch is installed, the two devices will begin talking to each other just like they’re old friends.

We realise that homeowners want to achieve a modern look with their fixtures and fittings, which is why we’ve maintained our commitment to providing stylish, minimalistic aesthetics, alongside the smart technology they offer. The switches come in white or black glass, with or without a chrome trim, and house one or two buttons.



If you’re an existing Retrotouch customer, and already have our products shining throughout your home, then you’ll be pleased to hear we’ve coordinated our latest switches to match our other ranges, so you can get that consistent look to your decor.

With the winter months fast approaching, it’s time to ready your home for the cosy domestic months ahead. It’s time to achieve that festive ambience you’ve always been wanting.
