I had the pleasure a few weeks ago to offer advice and contribute towards a lovely feature on Christmas which I thought I would share with you…..

The Tree

The only time less is more is not appropriate. More is more. I have learnt over the years that there is a trick and personally I think it is no tinsel and extra lights. The top tip is to choose your baubles to compliment your interiors. As you can see from the images on the right the tree accessories tie in with the room. By doing this you create a theme.

Lighting

Lighting is such an important feature to design and it can transform any space. Christmas is all about feeling warm and cosy when in your home. Pulling out the festive cushions, the faux fur throw and dimming down the lights. Mood lighting is key. Normally I would use table lamps and floor lamps to create a cosy feeling but at Christmas I use festive candles and novelty lights like pictured right.

The Table

It is all about the table on Christmas Day!!! At the end of the day you are probably still sat there with a glass of wine so why not make the most of it. Designing and creating a beautiful centrepiece, decorating wreaths, adding little treats for the eye that are dotted around. For this I have chosen my favourite image from Pintrest to show you for inspiration. The blue and gold theme adds a touch of luxury, a real festive treat and yet so simple to re create yourself.
