INTERIORS: DECORATING FOR CHRISTMAS

December 09, 2012

Christmas presents under the tree Silver Christmas candlesticks Twig heart Wooden mushrooms Photobucket Photobucket Christmas is my favourite time of year. The whole month of December I fully embrace the Christmas spirit and decorating my home is such an integral part of the process. My little tips:

- If you're quite new to doing Christmas in your own home, inheriting some decorations is a great way to get started as it can get quite expensive. We've inherited a lot of ours and with every year we replace the cheaper decorations with nicer ones.

- Our Christmas tree is cleverly drilled into a big chunk of wood meaning no mess at all. I'd very much recommend this if you can find one! Ours is from Royal College Street, London.

- As you can see, our theme is white, silver, green and brown. I love having a theme and this one is perfectly neutral.

- Put fairy lights wherever you can. We don't have a fireplace this year which I really miss so every other surface is covered in lights. It makes such a wonderful ambience when the lamps are turned off.

- Candles are essential. This NEOM one (Christmas Wish*) is a beautiful Christmas scent which fills our home even when it's not lit. Perfect!
