    Is it too early to put your Christmas tree up? In a word, yes. Christmas is still 23 days away. But, when I do decorate my living room, I want it to look like this. Just silver and white baubles on the tree and all the presents underneath in matching silver paper. Only a few, very tasteful Christmas cards (sorry, mum), will make it to the mantlepiece, which will mostly be decorated with fresh foliage, flowers and white scented candles.

    Budget-busting Christmas dining room update

    by  • December 22, 2010 • Desirable dining • 1 Comment

    No time? No money? No problem! Ideal Home‘s cash clever decorator has some great tips for updating your dining room for Christmas if all that money has gone on your kids’ gift list! I love this modern take on Scandi-chic, and I love even more, that it won’t break the bank!

    Here are some cost-friendly tips:

    1) Instead of a runner, use long lengths of ribbon to give a white tablecloth a festive touch

    2) Paint a picture frame (without the glass) and stick a silhouette decoration to it.

    3) Transform dining chairs with personalised chunky metal letters tied with red ribbon. These designs only cost a tenner from Emily Readett-Bayley!

    Festive Fetish: Foliage and Frost

    by  • December 22, 2010 • Desirable dining • 2 Comments

    Now that’s a lot of F words for one morning!! I really enjoy this idea for festive feasting though (sorry, it’s addictive!) it’s simply stylish, it’s sophisticated and it’s easy to put together if you’re running low on time.

    For a chic country Christmas dining room like this one, white-painted furniture and a nature-inspired subtle wallpaper is ideal, but don’t worry if not – just pack your dining room full of realistic-looking greenery, frosted pine cones and wicker pieces!

    Keep tableware simple, but pile on the sparkle with a mix of silver and white Christmas decorations in a range of textures and finishes.

    Christmas past… doily dining room

    by  • December 21, 2010 • Uncategorized • 2 Comments

    I love this quirky dining room idea… not sure I’d do it myself… but it’s certainly memorable. The ghost of Christmas past meets the ghost of Christmas future as the classic Victorian-style doily meets modern red furniture and accessories.

    To get the look, stitch doilies together in a delicate tablecloth, or use frills on fairy lights for a dramy, dinner-time garland.

    Here’s how to get this Christmas living room look:

    1) Keep the backdrop plain, here they’ve used a subtle twig-pattern wallpaper in two tonal colourways.

    2) Add texture with chunky knitted throws and cushions.

    3) Complete with woodland-inspired or folksy accessories, such as birdhouses, log candleholders and pine cone decorations.

    Christmas decorating trend: beach chic

    by  • December 2, 2010 • Uncategorized • 1 Comment

    These are two decorating notions I’ve never put together… but then I do come from a country where if you have dry socks and unfrizzy hair at Christmas time, it’s a good day. It’s easy to forget that the majority of people don’t have to cosy up with a hot water bottle during the holiday season.

    With that in mind, I’ve been on the hunt for some sunshine-friendly Christmas trends. I LOVE The Inspired Room blog – it’s held my attention for longer than my Christmas list. Check out these beautiful schemes.
