DECORATING IDEAS FOR CHRISTMAS

How do you guys decorate? Full-on maximalist or a little more minimal. I have to say I am rather restrained, which is kind of surprising for me, no? I keep the colour palette reigned in (generally greens and whites) and find little ways to add festive flair. Here are some of my little touches:

Nothing is easier; pomegranate and plums in large platters adorn kitchen islands and dining tables this time of year. You can up the glam stakes and display in a gold bowl if you want to add a big fat dollop of bling!

GETTING TABLES IN THE SPIRIT

Fur cones, pine branches, candles add instant holiday cheer to any table.

THE NAKED FLAME

For me being cosy is so linked to candlelight and firelight. I fully embrace the spirit of hygge and love this time of year.

I hang wreaths everywhere, over bar carts, on chimney breasts, on the door – it’s an instant way to deck the halls.
